Love Notions- Mommy and Me Origami Tunic/Cardigan

Today, I'm sewing up the Love Notions Origami Tunic in a coordinated Mommy and Me set. Miss Seven (and a half, she'll remind you! ;), still loves to dress similarly and I'm just riding that wave as long as it lasts (it's so fleeting!).

I sewed up a size small, non-handkerchief hem, long sleeve Love Notions Origami Tunic cardigan. I did shorten the front and back bodice pattern pieces for my 5'-0" height. I also shortened the sleeves and brought them in 1/2" to fit my arms, better. I love the easy wear-ability and the cascading front of the Love Notions Origami Tunic as a cardigan.  I just wanted to switch things up this time and make a cardi as I transition my wardrobe to fall layering pieces. I've made this pattern before as a regular tunic and I still get lots of wear from it.

Love Notions Girl's Origami Tunic- PORTRAIT

Missy is a dresses and leggings kind of gal- especially as we head into fall. Yet, she still plays hard needs to be able to move when it comes to her clothing. The Love Notions Origami Tunic is the perfect solution- perfect to cover her bum (in leggings), long enough to *almost* be a dress and easy enough to wear while at recess! I sewed her a straight size eight, handkerchief hem, banded neckline, 3/4 sleeves Love Notions Origami Tunic.

Made for Mermaids- 35K Membership Milestone (Plus a special cause!)

Posted by Heather at Sunday, September 10, 2017 0 comments

 One of my favorite pattern designers, Made for Mermaids is celebrating 35k members in their Facebook group! How amazing is that?!! I've been following and testing and sewing with #teammermaid from *almost* the beginning and I've been with them ever since! Congrats, Ladies- quite an accomplishment of quality, stylish patterns that appeal to girls and Mamas of all shapes, sizes, walks of life, from all around the globe! Sew Much Fun!!

Made for MermaidsGirl Cora Culottes- Size 8, above the knee, pockets in rayon spandex

I sewed up both the Girl Cora Culottes and the Mama Cora Culottes. Missy loves the fact that they are easy, breezy and include (optional) POCKETS! I love that I can dress them up for work (paired with a twin set and scarf), or dress them down with a t-shirt and denim jacket. 

Size "Pink", 17" inseam (shortened for my height), no pockets in rayon spandex

As part of the 35k members milestone celebration, Megan G. designed the fun, stylish and easy-to-wear Cora Culottes in both girl's and Mama sizes. Since Megan G. is from Texas, she wanted to use the newest Cora Culottes pattern to help raise awareness and money to support local Texas charities and relief efforts from Hurricane Harvey. So, from now until the end of the month, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Cora Culottes ($3/each) will go towards Texas charities. Once October rolls around, the pattern will be free to members in the Facebook group (with code).

Sew, go ahead, support a great, unifying cause and sew up a cute pair of Cora Culottes while you're at it!
