PF 109 Planning your makes

Sponsor this month: Club DIBY one pattern per week!  (Do it better yourself) There are also quite a few free patterns if you want to try the instructions etc before you commit!

Sew Explicit Eve dress pattern 63” hip

Catch up:



Creative Hinterland hack #7 – pintuck shirt dress.  Love this one!  Altered the front for pin tucks, changed the front to one piece instead of bodice/skirt, left the back the same.


Ogden Cami -(59.5”) scrap fabric that I came across – wide fabric can make this cami out of one yard in my size but may have to make lining (facing) from different fabric.  This time I made the facing smaller.

New Patterns:

French Poetry Pleiades 2 dress – up to 64’ hip (separate size band, not up graded from small)

Elbe Textiles – Davis Crossbody vest

Peppermint Magazine Samford Set ($5-$20) Up to 60” hip

Made in collaboration with Sew to Grow’s sensational Lindsey Rae, the Peppermint Samford Set is the ultimate in day pyjamas – a loosely cropped, camp-collared shirt that brings the perfect amount of slouch, and a pair of wide-leg pants with front pockets, back pockets and an elasticated waistband with a cute drawstring. 

Uncut Marselis Dress & top max 63” chest

The body of the top and dress nearly forms a full circle, resulting in a loose and flowy fit. All versions cut just above the bust and you have the option of sleeveless halter-style ties, short drop-shoulder sleeves or long sleeves with elasticated wrists. The dress version cuts just above the knees and the top cuts at the hip.
