Layne Dolman with split sleeves

Another garment for myself, yay! Testing for myself is always the best way to sew for myself, otherwise clothing for our girls goes first. I love the Layne Dolman, remember this sweater? The Layne Dolman from Petite Stitchery* is a great design with many options!
I sewed the top length (both on the front and back) with split sleeves. I love the hem of this top. You can easily combine a top length with a tunic length hem to create a high low top.
Of course normally when I have the chance to colour block anything in my sewing I take my chance. This time I couldn't really find any fabric that would fit with this fabric so I just used one fabric for the split sleeves. And this year I am really trying to not buy any new fabric, anyone who has seen my fabric stash will understand...
The Layne dolman, as well as the girls' Lulu dolman are on sale until January 29th!

PatternLayne Dolman from Petite Stitchery
Sizing: XS - 4X (also available in girls' sizing)
Options: crop, top or tunic lengths, short or long sleeves. Regular sleeves or split sleeves.

Muse playsuit re-release

I love playsuits, don't you? They look so cute on babies. But then babies grow up, so with our youngest still a bit baby like I need to sew up all the playsuits because once they get potty trained they are not that useful anymore. The Muse Playsuit by Stitch Upon a Time* is a great playsuit that works well with cloth diapers!
I love that the playsuit is loose enough so you can put some extra layer underneath it. There are several options for the finishing of the sleeves and the legs. You can use cuffs, like I did, or you can hem them. The playsuit fits very well and with the gusset is also over cloth diapers.
There are also two add ons: the muse playsuit dress expansion and the muse playsuit footie expansion. If you interested in the expansions, the first 1000 customers will receive the Footie Expansion AND the Skirt Expansion FREE with purchase of the Muse Playsuit with the code FreeEXP! I will definitely make the dress expansion, so cute! The muse is on sale until January 27th.
Fabric: the pink is a thicker sweater knit, the printed fabric was a leftover from this dress
Pattern: Muse playsuit by Stitch Upon a Time
Sizing: NB to 4Y
Options: three sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short or long sleeves), two leg lengths (short or long), playsuit or shirt and you can add a gusset if the child wears a diaper.
Difficulty: Intermediate
Sewing time: 2 hours

Flurry Sweater

I love special details on patterns. These cute details make me learn new skills and I love interesting details on clothing. I fell for the drawstring sleeves in the new Girl's Flurry Sweater by Petite Stitchery*.
You can go all the way with the pattern. In addition to the drawstring sleeve, it also has the option of a sleeve with a gathered shoulder or just a plain sleeve and bodice. I did a circle peplum, but also a gathered peplum and a split hem at the back with optional bows are included in the pattern.
Of course the sleeves take some extra time during sewing, but it is so worth it! I love the effect. For the first sweater that I sewed I used stretch velvet and that gives the sleeves even more drama. The final pattern is made with the striped fabric (a bit more width to the sleeves was added in comparison to the stretch velvet peplum).

The patterns, both the girl's and women's flurry are on sale through Monday January 13th at midnight. Each pattern will be on sale for $7.50.
Fabric: the striped fabric comes from my Italian fabric shop, the stretch velvet comes from Nooteboom Textiles.
