Designer name: Sew Like My Mom (link!)
Price: price is discounted trough Friday, get each size group for 6$ or bundled together for 11$
Size range: sizes 12m – 16y (in two batches 12m-8y and 6y-16y, you can buy each batch separately or buy them bundled)
Print sizes: print size: US Letter, PDF is colored, layered and has different line styles for different sizes.
Difficulty level: Beginner 🙂
Fabric recommendations: French terry, sweatshirt fleece etc. You can use cotton-lycra too, but you should then look at recovery and stretch! 🙂 At least 20% of stretch is needed!
I tested: Size 24m/2T. Although little miss Fashionista is tad bit short for 24M this pattern is designed the way that you can make bigger number and wear them longer! 🙂 And as a mum of kids who have growth spurts so that they can grow out of one number by one night, I love patterns like this.
You know what else is excellent? This pattern is unisex! Meaning you can make them both boys and girls, for boys over 6 years the pattern slightly changes but you can still get joggers for your daughter and son by buying the same pattern.
Featuring short, capri and long length these are perfect for every season. One of my friends already ordered some shorts and capris and long pants for their vacation 😀
One more thing I always love about Melissa’s pattern is the way that her patterns are designed – they are made the way you can use really small amount of fabric! And those pockets, cuffs and waistband are great for scrap 😉 We all have those odd strips or triangles that need their home in some garment! 🙂
During the testing period I love how Melissa listens to everyone. She changed bigger boys patterns to make some room for them. She highered the back rise and lowered the front rise for baby sizes. As babies usually are chubbier she added some width to their leg pieces. She is working hard to get all her patterns perfect!
And now, if you are wishing that these should come in your size… Then there are some exciting news for you! Melissa is working on her very first women’s pattern and this is the same joggers for adults! Yay for matching outfits!
For an outfit I paired Boxwood joggers with matching knot headband (I’ll share the link tomorrow in my Free Pattern Wednesday) and different shirts. For the finals I put on her a white tee from H&M, faux leather jacket from Lindex and cute espadrilles also from H&M. I think these would look awesome with some white or mint leather imitation sneakers also! 🙂 I am planning on making her a Pistachio tee but this week was crazy featuring three different testings! 🙂
I am absolutely not happy with these photos.. Well, I know there will be more Boxwoods in our life so they’ll get better represented 😉
