Guys, I’m just lame at blogging when I’m caught up sewing. Sewing is way more fun than blogging.
Speaking of sewing…. When am I not speaking of sewing? Speaking of sewing. Do you know how many pattern tests I’ve done this year? I’m finishing 43, in the process of 44, and 45 is starting up in a day or two. Think I can squish five more into this year? And get Christmas sewing done? We’ll see. It’s my own little goal.
And speaking of pattern testing. Here’s one I tests about a month ago for Made By Jack’s Mum. If you’ve seen the Harry Potter footed pjs I made for Jackson, this is the same designer. The Eclipse T-Shirt and Dress is the first pattern I tested for Sarah of MBJM.
Unfortunately, I don’t really have many pictures of Jackson in it. Because, I hate it. Not the pattern. I hate the colour combination I used. I liked it when I was cutting the fabric out. I hated it as soon as it was put together.
The pattern is just fine though. And loaded with options. There are three different necklines – round (like above), envelope (see below), and hooded. There’s three different sleeve options – long, short, and gathered (think: puffy sleeve). There’s also a shirt length and a dress length.
The envelope top is actually the same top included in the Starry Night Pjs. Except the envelope top has a few different options in the Starry Night pattern that are not included in the Eclipse pattern. Like the cuffed sleeves, and banded hem. The size range is also larger for the Eclipse than the Starry Night – ranging from preemie to age 8, instead of age 4.
