Spring Break PJ Party – MadeByJaime

Spring Break PJ Tour | MadeByJaime

Hey all – I back today on the Spring Break PJ Party tour, this time to share my handmade PJ’s!

Spring Break PJ Tour | MadeByJaime

I made PJs for myself using an oldie in my pattern stash and a newer addition to my pattern stash.

We’ve been planning this tour for a while, so when I was getting ready to attend QuiltCon2016 and saw that Girl Charlee would be there with their BOLT fabrics, I immediately made plans to purchase fabrics from them for the PJ Tour. Their BOLT line is only available to fabric retailers, a list of which you can find here, so I was excited to be able to see and feel them in person. They are incredibly soft, lightweight and drapy, not to mention they’re preshrunk so you can skip the washing and get right to cutting! I knew they’d make amazing pajamas.

It’s starting to warm up where I live so I decided to use the Casual Lady by Go-To Patterns to make a nightgown in the pink quatrafoil. This is a pattern I’ve had in my stash since I first discovered PDF patterns. I was drawn to its simplicity and classic style.

The pattern uses facing to finish the neckline. It reaches from the shoulders down to about halfway down the armscye, laying across your chest. I didn’t personally enjoy the feeling of the extra fabric so after the dress was all finished, I cut it away. Since knit fabrics don’t unravel, I just cut it close to the stitching on the inside around each armscye and the neckline leaving the finished edge.

I graded between a smaller size on the top and a larger on the bottom, but I think if I were to make it as a dress again, I would use just a single size as there’s a little extra around the hips. But it will be WONDERFUL as a nightgown for spring and fall.

The second piece I made was the Portlander Pants by Terra’s Treasures.

Since these only just came out a few months ago, this is the newer pattern in my stash, but I’m so happy I made the purchase. I have a pair of pants similar to these that are my standard winter PJ pants, but I could definitely use a few more pairs – and in happier prints. My original pair is black. So I grabbed this floral from the BOLT booth at QuiltCon and they really are much more cheery than my old black pair.

I had the pink rib knit in my stash already so I used that for the waistband.

I did not opt to include elastic or a draw string and they are comfy and easy to wear. You can be sure next fall I will be making another pair or two. I used one size on the pants based on my hip measurement.

If you’re looking to make PJs for yourself, these are great patterns to try out!

Itch To Stitch Anniversary | Paulina Hack

Itch To Stitch Anniversary Sale & Giveaway | Paulina Hack | MadeByJaime

Itch to Stitch Birthday Fun

(scroll to the bottom to enter to win!)

Hey everyone! I’m back again on the blog with another Pattern Designer celebration! Don’t you love a good celebration?! As you can see, there is a great giveaway  – daily as well as a grand prize so you’ll want to check back with Itch to Stitch* every day of the blog tour, today through October 14th, and scroll to the bottom of this post to enter!

Last year, I enrolled in The Pattern Workshop* class by Lauren Dahl of Baste + Gather. Upon enrollment, I was added to a facebook group with all the other students. It was there I met Kennis of Itch to Stitch Designs and, soon thereafter, tested her first pattern, the Marbella Dress (love this dress!!). Kennis has released 9 additional patterns this year – shorts, tops and dresses – and since I had just finished a dress, I thought a top would be a nice change of pace. Thinking on to my fall wardrobe, I chose to hack the Paulina* pattern.

Itch To Stitch Anniversary Sale & Giveaway | Paulina Hack | MadeByJaime

The Paulina top is for you, “If you want comfort and style at the same time…Pair it with leggings and boots, skinny jeans and heels, or capri pants and flats…” The original design includes

  • Knit top with woven contrast
  • Comfortable raglan sleeves
  • Relaxed fit cropped bodice
  • Underlay contrast with shirttail hem
  • Peekaboo cut outs below armholes
  • Wide neckline
  • Twelve sizes (00 – 20)

In order to “hack” the pattern, I decided to switch the shirt layers so the knit was underneath and the woven was on top. The woven is a chiffon diamond print I chose from my stash, but I originally bought it at F&M Fabrics, online at TheFabricMarket.com. You can find it here (at $3.99/yd!) and they also have it in a black and cream here.

Itch To Stitch Anniversary Sale & Giveaway | Paulina Hack | MadeByJaime

Additionally, I omitted the peekaboo cut outs below armholes. The original Paulina has a very classic style, but I think the swapping of fabrics gives it a sporty element.

Itch To Stitch Anniversary Sale & Giveaway | Paulina Hack | MadeByJaime

This top was a quick sew and everything went together perfectly. For personal preference, I will definitely be adding length to my next Paulina, but it is for sure a style I see myself wearing all fall and winter. Cozy but definitely not frumpy, which is great for a busy mom!

Remix The Stitch: The Capitol Hill Maxi

Hi there! I’m Jaime of MadeByJaime and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! I’m up today on the Remix The Stitch Anniversary Tour & Giveaway with my twist on Straight Stitch Designs‘ Capitol Hill. Just for reference, here’s Kimberly of Straight Stitch Designs rockin the original version of the Capitol Hill:

Kimberly describes it this way: “CAPITOL HILL is style meets comfort with a scoop neck, double pleat detail at the front and 3 skirt options.  Make the Capitol Hill as either a dress or a tunic with elbow or long sleeves.  You can go for classic with a gathered skirt in both knit and woven or mix it up with a half or full circle skirt.  You can also band the sleeves or just do a simple hem.”

About a week before really thinking through what I was going to do to remix the Capitol Hill, my local fabric store posted this glitter chiffon fabric as a part of their weekly Create This Look. I couldn’t get this fabric out of my mind so when I had a kidless hour, I ran down to F&M Fabrics (online at TheFabricMarket.com) and picked up 3 yards. You guys…it’s 3.99 A YARD and comes in 3 color ways! I also found a really stable mid-heavyweight knit and got several yards of that for the bodice and underskirt and got to work.

Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

I cut the bodice and waistband first. I had a remnant of a bright pink knit but it was much thinner than the black knit I was using for the bodice and I was concerned it wouldn’t hold up the layers of the skirt I was planning. So I also cut the waistband in the black knit and layered them together as one fabric. I must stop here to say Kimberly has included a short video on how to appropriately fold the front bodice pleats so if the instructions are confusing for you in any way, the video clarifies everything!

Once I tried that on and knew it fit, I moved on to the skirt. Because the knit’s thickness, I was concerned that a half circle skirt would be a little much so I used this tutorial to cut an a-line skirt from it. In this episode of True Sewing Confessions, I must tell you, I did not appropriately account for my hip measurement and it turned out quite snug. At first I liked how it felt – kind of like built-in spanx! But I realized, after getting it all together, that it would start to ride up and affect the drape of the bodice. I fixed it after the fact by opening up the side seams and adding gussets (triangle pieces of fabric) from just above my hip to the hem. This allowed for better movement and overall drape of the dress.

Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

After cutting the under layer, I used the half circle skirt pattern piece included in the Capitol Hill file to cut the chiffon. I just opened up the chiffon and folded the 3 yards in half and instead of cutting on the hem line included, which is knee length, I just continued cutting to the fabric edge. I used a measuring tape to find out how far beyond the pattern that took me (22.5″ if I remember correctly) and just marked that distance across the entire bottom edge with chalk. I used that as my cutting line and the length was generous enough to have some room to work with, but not wasteful (for reference, I’m 5′ 7″).

Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

I knew I wanted to do something different with the sleeve to continue to mix it up, but I didn’t have it nailed down at the outset. I briefly thought about making the neckline and/or sleeves from the chiffon, but it quickly went from nod to the 70’s to over-the-top so I used the black knit for the neckline and decided to use the Capitol Hill Sleeve pattern to draft a tulip sleeve.

Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaimeStraight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

I used this tutorial but drew 2″ down from the under arm seam, instead of 1″ as instructed. I also added 1/2″ seam allowance to the bottom edge only after drafting, as the sleeve cap and side seams already included seam allowance.Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

The black is such a strong color, I worried the elbow length or long sleeves would overpower the dress. I absolutely love how the tulip sleeve turned out – I think it adds some subtle femininity in line with the flowy floral.

Straight Stitch Designs' Capitol Hill Remix | MadeByJaime

I hadn’t made the Capitol Hill before so I had fun exploring it’s possibilities and remixing it as I went. The pattern itself offers so many options without remixing, but it is definitely a pattern you can add your own flair and style to.

Don’t forget, Kimberly is offering 50% off all Straight Stitch Designs patterns* (PDF and paper) and 40% off her Stitch Kits now through September 20th and you can see it all here*. See all the other Remix the Stitch styles here:

Otium Top Pattern by Sofilantjes | Tour & Giveaway!

Hey! It’s Friday!!! Seems like a good day for a Pattern Tour!

Otium Pattern Tour by Sofilantjes | JaimeSews

I had so much fun on the last Sofilantjes pattern tour, I’m back – this time with the Otium Top! Like the Omni Tempore, this pattern is available for adults and kids. It is a relaxed fit shirt with sleeve cuffs & waistband with neckline, sleeve & shirt front variations!
Otium Pattern Tour by Sofilantjes | JaimeSewsI have a serious lack of long sleeve options in my wardrobe so I grabbed this purple sweater knit at F&M Fabrics. (You can find them online at www.thefabricmarket.com). The Otium Sweater Pattern has a wider neckline so I chose a size small on top and tapered out to the medium toward the bottom. It is quite roomy and I would probably size down even more the next time around. This version is really comfortable, however, so I have no complaints! 
Otium Pattern Tour by Sofilantjes | JaimeSews
I really loved the scoop back option so that was definitely a design feature I wanted to include. There are even pattern pieces and instructions for adding a bow, as shown in kids version in the tour graphic above! Sleeve variations include short, 3/4 and long. You can also change the look entirely by making the diagonal pocket version – be sure to check out the other tour stops linked up below to see all the amazing options included in this pattern!

Marbella Dress Tour & Giveaway

Marbella Dress | MadeByJaime

Hi & thanks for stopping by for the Itch to Stitch* Marbella Dress Pattern Blog Hop!

I’ve always loved Audrey Hepburn. I know I’m not the only one. As a teenager she was a great role model – classic, beautiful, charming, graceful, timeless. I love her in this iconic photo wearing that boat neck dress with tulip skirt pegged down to the floor. *swoon*

(source)
(source)

Lovely, but a little impractical for daily wear. Insert the Marbella Dress by Itch to Stitch Designs*.

As I mentioned on Monday’s Post, when I first saw the Marbella Dress I was over the moon for Kennis Wong’s design! I’m sure a lot of it had to do with it’s classic feel and clean lines. I was so thrilled to be able to test such a lovely garment pattern. The Marbella Dress features a wide boat neck, front and back yokes allowing for color blocking, feminine princess lines that allow for a close fit in the bodice, roomy, slightly above knee tulip skirt, functional in-seam pockets and invisible back zipper closure (description from the Itch to Stitch website*).

Itch to Stitch Marbella Dress Pattern | JaimeSews

The group of testers and Kennis were so wonderfully helpful through the entire process. Before cutting into our fashion fabrics (mine being this solid blue, slightly textured bottom weight from F&M Fabrics), several of us started with muslins (practice garments) from solid cotton or leftover fabrics to get the fit just right. This pattern has sizing for A/B/C/D cups (I KNOW!) so the bodice fit wonderfully in front right off the bat. However, I did have some pooling of fabric at my lower back. That was quickly remedied by a sway back alteration on the appropriate pattern pieces. This is a common alteration for me on all patterns, one I failed to do (since I skipped the muslining stage) on my Easter Dress and really regret! As you can see in the picture below, the alteration was worth it! No extra fabric, just smooth seams.Itch to Stitch Marbella Dress Pattern | JaimeSews

Another change I made to the pattern was to blend between sizes. This is also common for me as my measurements always do land a little smaller on top than on bottom. At first Kennis and I did not think it would matter since the skirt is so roomy, but after some mystery fitting issues with the first muslin, I cut a larger skirt and attached to the practice garment after resolving the swayback and the correct size skirt made all the difference in the world. Itch to Stitch Marbella Dress Pattern | JaimeSews

I really want to emphasize that these are alterations I have to do every time I sew for myself so it was definitely not the pattern! In fact, the pattern itself was wonderful to work with. Everything fit together beautifully. And I really adored the techniques outlined in the instructions. They made me a better seamstress by walking me through some steps I am usually in too much of a hurry to consider (like trimming the lining pieces slightly to make them turn a little inward so you don’t see the lining peak out from the front of the garment). Little things like that, and more outlined in the instructions, really contribute to a professional finished product! Itch to Stitch Marbella Dress Pattern | JaimeSews

I think this dress has a lot of potential to be drastically different just by changing the fabrics! The fabric I chose is great for fall/winter with a jacket or sweater, but a floral would be great for spring and the yoke and bodice would lend themselves beautifully to color blocking, as you can see in some of the others’ tester versions. So be sure to click around below and follow the tour – you won’t be sorry!
