{Blog Tour} Simple Life Pattern Company & Sew Caroline

Something exciting has been happening behind the scenes with Simple Life Pattern Company and Sew Caroline!  They teamed up and swapped patterns to upsize (SLPco) and downsize (Sew Caroline) for Mommy & Me sewing.   I love sewing for my girls (they are so appreciative) so I chose to try out the Sugar Pop Top and the Magnolia Shorts.  

I was also lucky enough to shop some of the Riley Blake Designs collections and pick out some fabric!  Yay!! I love Riley Blake.  I chose to order from the Juxtaposey line by Betz White.  I chose Stripe (navy) and Star (green) for the Sugar Pop Top and Diamond (white) for the Magnolia Shorts.  I love that my girls can coordinate from the same line without being completely matchy-matchy.

The Sugar Pop Top is such a sweet blouse for summer.  It has both cap sleeves and flutter sleeves as well as a hidden button placket in the back.  It also includes a peter pan collar and a slight hi-lo hem.  The inside is unlined so it's not too hot for the summer heat.  Both the collar and arms are finished off with bias tape for a neat and tidy inside!

In lieu of the peter pan collar, I chose to add in a feature stripe of Juxtaposey Stripe (navy).  I just love the contrast against the green Juxtaposey Stars.

As I was getting my "back view" to show the hidden placket, she turned and smiled.  Here's my "not-so-hidden" hidden placket because I apparently got distracted by the cute smile and didn't have her turn back around.

The Magnolia Shorts are a super quick sew with either an elastic or knit waistband.  They are a relaxed fit.  I added a fringe trim from Hobby Lobby to the bottom of this pair.

This is her "model pose" ... LOL   Helpful hint; To get your chevron pattern to line up properly, cut an exact mirror image!  It's that easy 😊

A special thanks to Riley Blake Designs for sending this awesome fabric my way and to Sarah of Pattern Revolution for organizing the tour.
