The other day I had mentioned on Facebook that I was hoping I could be a pattern tester for Heidi (the talented lady behind Elegance and Elephants) and her newest pattern coming out. And timing just worked out that I was able to…woo hoo!
If you haven’t seen her newest pattern, it is this super cute bubble pocket top and twirl skirt! This was my first time sewing up one of her patterns, and her directions are great! There are lots of pictures and everything is explained so clearly. She has been wonderful to work with. And the pattern is due to release….tomorrow!
The bubble pocket top was sewn out of this great gray linen I had in my stash. I love the clean simple lines of this top! And the spin skirt was sewn from some fabric that a good friend gave to me. Doesn’t it remind you of watercolor paints? It looks like someone dripped a few colors here and a few colors there. I love the waistband of this skirt. As I was sewing it up, I looked down at the store bought skirt I was wearing, and the waistband was constructed the exact same way! Now I know how they did that…and I want every single one of my waistbands from here on out to be the same way!If you ask Sweet Pea what her favorite part of the outfit was, it would be the spin skirt. I even caught her doing a little happy dance!
