Winter Coats and Beautiful Dresses - Birthday Blog Tour Day 5

It's Friday!  You know what that means?!?!  It's release day here at BSD!  In addition to 3 more fabulous pattern hacks, we've got two great pattern releases for you today!  No matter if you are in love with woven fabrics or knits, we've got something for everyone.

The Maci Twirly Dress & Top - Girls PDF Sewing Pattern

You are going to love the Maci Twirly Dress & Top.  It comes with both long and short sleeves as well as three different length options.  It is designed for knit fabrics for all you custom knit addicts out there. This has quickly become my daughter's favorite play dress.  And it's such a quick sew, I don't mind that she goes out and gets dirty in it.  She's begging me to make her more. Check out the photos below:

The Piper Reversible Peplum Top - Girls PDF Sewing Pattern

I love the look of a peplum top. It accentuates the waist and gives such a feminine look to the figure.  I wanted this top to be super beginner friendly.  Because of that, there are no zippers or button holes to sew. The back keyhole is both decorative and functional allowing the top to slip easily over the head. And since there is a button loop to close, you don't have to worry about your machine button hole giving you fits. It is perfect for beginners. And the coolest part? You can make this top reversible! It's like two tops in one. I loved it so much, I made one for both of my girls.

Now that you've seen the new releases, let's get on to the the rest of the blog tour!

Bella Sunshine Designs Birthday Blog Tour - Day 5


Essence with Adventures With Bubbe and Bug is a favorite tester of mine. When she signed up to hack the Coffee Shop Lace Dress, I knew it was going to be amazing. Check out her blog Adventures With Bubbe and Bug to see how she changes my favorite lace trimmed dress.


Tara from Crazy Crafty Haute Mama fell in love with the a-DOR-able Gabriella's Winter Coat and snapped it up despite having at least 5 other coat patterns in her repertoire. Now, she's going to flex her hacker muscles just a little. I can't wait for you to see her adorable little creation on her blog Crazy Crafty Haute Mama... and the pattern turned out really cute too.

I have worked with Melissa with Rebel & Malice a lot in the past. Not only was she one of my very first testers, she inspired our Rebel Girl Party Dress (which I should mention you will be seeing the women's version of that popular pattern release next month!) Melissa is insanely talents, so be sure to check out Rebel & Malice to see the hacks that she did on our Adaline Dress & Tunic.
