Phoebe Bib and Tucker
I really enjoyed making the phoebe overalls - particularly this is a different style to my usual makes. They are so much fun to wear!! The instructions and diagrams were clear and easy to follow, and I loved the multiple options to individualise the final outfit, as well as the fit options. The pattern included modifications for bust size, waist length and sway back - meaning that I didn’t have figure it all out myself. I can see that you can build a great wardrobe from this patterns and all the add ons.
A lovely comfy tee which was quick and easy to sew. The pattern includes three different front pattern pieces for different cups sizes, so I didn’t need to do any adjustments! The button tabs are a great feature which makes this pattern distinctive from other tees available. I will be making more!
Love, Iove love them, in fact Im wearing them to a party tonight. I made them up in flora print and as I was sewing them my children informed me that they would not walk down the street with me wearing them. Now they are made they want some for themselves. Another great pattern which is comfortable, fun and flattering to wear.
This top was a quick sew but looks like an expensive RTW garment due to the advice and small details. The boat neck is a subtle change from a crew and the thumb cuffs are going to make this perfect for our skiing trip this winter! The pattern has the perfect amount of ease to be flattering but warm and is super well drafted. I reckon I will be making many more!
I love that this pattern doesn't have side seams as it seems to hide my body flaws better. It is surprisingly flattering, and such a great pattern to hack. The stencils for printing are really lovely and lift the pattern to a whole new level.
Really quick, straight forward make with easy to understand instructions. A comfortable flattering "blank canvas" ready to personalise, with embellishments or by hacking. My daughters have both asked for one too. I made a plain and simple black Sumekko, I was wary of the fit as I have a mummy tummy and worried it might cling in the wrong places. It doesn't, it skims and is so so comfortable, never mind secret pyjamas this is a secret nightie.
The Phoebe bib pattern was extremely enjoyable to sew. The instructions were clear and the pants and bib came together easily. Under-stitching and top-stitching are small details that make the overalls look more finished. Also as an A cup, I appreciate the bust darts that provide a bit of shaping, as opposed to traditional bibs which accentuate my small chest. I made the Phoebe bib in linen and anticipate wearing them often during the summer.
