Hail to the Quinns!

Hi There,
I am just so happy to announce that Made for Mermaids patterns has just released their Quinn pattern in girls and women's version, isn't that amazing? Mommy and Me looks anyone? I hardly ever sew for myself so I was quick to jump in and made miss Julia and I matching looks using Michael Miller Fabrics Bed of Roses Collection, I can honestly say I love how they turned out!

The girl's pattern includes top, tunic and dress versions, I made 3!  First, a wonderful ruffled A-line tunic; Second, a top that matched the Mama version of mine and Third, a maxi dress using Art Gallery Fabrics' Pat Bravo Essentials, all the looks are just so special!

The A-line tunic version has a shorter bodice and it includes the options of elastic casing or shirring in the back, tie in straps and single or double ruffles ( I used my ruffler foot for the ruffles yay!) For this look I used Michael Miller Fabrics Tweet la Vie, a beautiful collection of soft colors full of femininity.

The top version has a shorter bodice as well and a gathered skirt that could easily be embelished with lace or rick rack trims, as you can see I chose a beautiful lace from my local Hobby Lobby and Michael Miller fabrics' Bed of Roses Collection.

For my third version I tried a maxi dress with pockets (yes, I have a little hoarder who goes around collecting things). This version has a longer bodice and two more rows of elastic casing or shirring in the back, adorable right?

I hope you get a chance to try this pattern, did I mention it is beginner friendly?

This pattern is available HERE

Until next time,
