{Sew Coordinated} October 2015



The 5th of the month is quickly becoming my favorite day!  It's Sew Coordinated Reveal Day!!!

Sew Coordinated is a monthly subscription sewing kit (sign up HERE) brought to you by Mama Made and Beautiful Fabrics.  I had so much fun sewing up these whimsical fabrics from Studio E featuring our favorite forest friends.

When my kit arrived, I had my 4 year old help me open it.   After petting each fabric, she said "You're a lucky mama to get all these pretty fabrics".  Of course, she's the lucky one because she gets to wear them!


This month's kit contains:

  • 1/2 yd Gentle Forest (Tea & Sympathy for Studio E) 3046-33
  • 1 yd Gentle Forest (Tea & Sympathy for Studio E) 3042-09
  • 1/2 yd Gentle Forest (Tea & Sympathy for Studio E) 3043-92

Fall inspired and perfectly girly!

{Simple Life Co} Daphne's Double Skirt ~ slightly modified


As I started planning the outfits, I had an idea to use a portion of the Border Print ( 3041-22) as the waistband and two of the frames as pockets on a skirt.  

Simple Life Pattern Co. just released Daphne's Double Skirt which was the perfect starting point!  Daphne's contains both a double layer skirt option (which I almost chose) and a single layer with pockets option.  I decided the pockets were essential so I chose the single layer.  


As I mentioned, I had to slightly modify the pattern -- only so I could best showcase the prints of the fabric.  I added height to the waistband to allow the entire border print -- making it a high-waisted skirt which is really popular right now.  The pocket size is also slightly changed so I could showcase just the framed pictured of the animals.  The pinkish purple frames add the needed touch of girlishness for my 4 year old.


Remember those matching fox buttons?  I slipped some elastic in the holes of the shank buttons for easy hair accessories!

{Little Lizard King} Best Dressed Girl ~ slightly modified


The Best Dressed Girl by Little Lizard King is quickly becoming my go-to fall dress.  I love the 3/4 sleeve option and the pieced bodice allows for a front feature, such as another framed animal picture included in the border print.  I used the ribbon as the side ties and featured the last Wuttons button (the hedgehog) on the back.


Hello, little friend!  These buttons are machine washable, but it is recommended to turn your garment inside out.


The only modification made was to lengthen the bodice to fit the framed animal on the center panel.  I have several framed animal pictures left from the border print and I can't wait to feature them in other projects!  They are so cute.
