Merino Wool Hoodie – Patterns for Pirates Raglan Pattern Review

Pattern review for the Patterns for Pirates Women's Raglan - I sewed it up in merino wool! Buying this in store would have been $100+ but I made it for less than half.

I love wool! People often think of scratchy, heavy, hot sweaters when they hear that but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Merino wool is thin and breathable, adapting to your body temperature so it can be worn year round. Unfortunately, it seems to only be used in higher-end sweaters in more classic styles and underlayer sports clothes, both at high prices. I want more options! I actually sewed this up as a gift for a friend, but I couldn’t resist trying it on and decided to share my thoughts about the pattern.

I have been meaning to post about this pattern for months – it took a while to get a picture of the grey tights hanging up, because my daughter wore them almost every day! These handmade baby tights are from the Abby’s Footed Tights pattern by The Wolf and The Tree – I pattern tested for the designer, Saskia, and will definitely be making more of these.

Thread Faction #110 Romper - a PDF Sewing Pattern for a summer romper with flutter sleeves. Perfect summer romper to sew for a girl!

One of my 2016 goals was to say ‘no’ more – I’m forever trying to reconcile my list of projects with how many hours I have to actually work on them. So, when an email landed in my inbox for a blog tour, from a company I’d never heard of, I had a “thanks but no thanks” all typed out.. and then I just happened to click on the link.. and saw the cutest romper ever!

Turns out Thread Faction used to be Hatchlings, and this kicks off the designer, Liz,’s Spring/Summer collection of patterns. I’m excited to be a stop on the blog tour, this romper is SO fun to make, and I love how it turned out. There are some great giveaways, coupons, and other bloggers so keep reading!

Sew Caroline’s Out and About Dress – As A Top

sewcaroline pdf pattern

Time for a PDF pattern review! I initially received this pattern for free as a part of this sponsored post I wrote for UpCraft Club (the post talks about their PDF sewing cards – you can buy PDF cards in your local quilting shop, check it out!). It is designed as a dress, but dresses aren’t very practical when I am hiking, sitting, kneeling on a daily basis. I chopped a few inches off the skirt and made it into a top!
