Sharing the Designer Love: Seaside Notions

Some sewists may or may not know this, but the PDF Designer world is very close-knit.  I have never before worked in an industry where people were so friendly and helpful with their competitors.  It's totally awesome to get to be real friends with other people that share your passion for fashion design.  Because of that, I wanna share a little love with my bestie in the PDF world, Nicola of Seaside Notions.

Sharing the Designer Love: Seaside Notions

When Nicola asked me to test her new Point Mugu Maxi Skirt pattern, I was stoked!  I love her brand, and it was an honor to get to test together.  When I found out she was putting together a blog tour, I quickly signed up.  I love this pattern, and I couldn't wait to show it off to my readers.  Plus it gives me the perfect excuse to show off cute photos of my oldest princess sporting her new skirt.  So without further ado, I'd like to present to you the Point Mugu Maxi Skirt:

Isabella-Tester-005 Isabella-Tester-011 Isabella-Tester-013The skirt features an elastic waistband and four tiers with lots of ruffles.  It sews together so easy and fast.  The fit was spot on, and my daughter absolutely loves it.  She always says how pretty she feels when she wears it which melts this momma's heart!

Isabella-Tester-015 Isabella-Tester-026 Isabella-Tester-031There were several things I loved about this pattern.  First off, let me go a little geeky for a second.  Seaside Notion's branding is beautiful!  I love when I open up a pattern and it's pretty.  It makes it a joy to read.  The other thing I love is the fact that the pattern not only has layered pattern pieces but also a measurement chart.  It's like the best of both worlds.  Plus it has a very large size range of 12M to 14 which means it will last me a long time.

If you haven't had a chance to pick up a copy of this pattern, now is a perfect time.  You can get it for 20% off using coupon code blog tour.  Seaside Notions is also giving one lucky person a copy for free!  Use the Rafflecopter below to enter.
