Let's BundleUp: part deux

7:28:00 AM,2 Comments


I'm back!!!!  How lucky am I that I get to be a part of this rockin blog tour 2 days in a row?!?!?!  It's pretty exciting for me, and I am even more excited to share with you two more great patterns in the boys BundleUp!





Let's start with the really cool Zee's Tee by Tie Dye Diva!




Ok, confession time.  This is my first(gasp!!!) time sewing up a Tie Dye Diva pattern.  I know, all my sewing friends are falling out of their chairs right now, but seriously, I own like hundreds of patterns, even some TDD, I've just never sewn one up, until now!




This pattern goes from size 18month-12yrs!  That's a huge range!  I love a pattern that can take my kids from toddler hood through adolescence!  AWESOME!  The pattern was extremely easy to follow.  There are tons of things I really love about this pattern!  I really liked that it includes a quick print guide!  Seriously, if only every designer did this, life would be much easier!   Never sewn with knit before?  No worries!  An entire section on sewing with knits is included!



I also LOVE the instructions on how to upcycle old shirts for this pattern!  The color photos and step by step instructions were super easy to understand and follow.  And don't get me started on all the options!  I chose the coloblocked top tee, but you could also colorblock the bottom sides, or not colorblock at all and sew a pocket tee.  Maybe you just want ti colorblock the sleeves!  The possibilities seem endless, and I like that in a pattern!




This was such a quick sew!  I used clearance tees that I upcycled, so using the existing hems made it even quicker!  I will be sewing this a lot in the future, as the LOVE to mix and match fabrics and this pattern is the perfect canvas for doing just that!

But a great tee needs an awesome pair of pants, am I right?!?!  Thank you Aviator Pants by Winter Wear Designs for helping to complete this awesome look!



Remember yesterday when I said I was lucky enough to test 2 patterns?  Well, this was pattern #2!!  The Aviator pants are a great pattern!  The size range is 18months-14yrs!!  Amazing right?  And this pattern has a TON of options!




Gotta have a booty shot!  haha  I chose welt pockets and side slash pockets, but you can also choose cargo pockets.  Maybe you want even more details.  Why not add on a contrast triangle on the leg with a cuff.  Or do like I did and chop 'em off and make them shorts!




My gent LOVES these pockets!  Perfect for storing his growing rock collection.  And while this pattern boasts so many details, Suzanne did not forget to write a great tutorial.  She put this pattern through the ringer to really get it perfect!  The instructions are easy to follow and the color photos help guide you step by step.



I used rib knit for the waist, and my boy says these are way comfy!  He would wear them everyday if I let him!  I think I will be making many more of these for Pre-K this year!  

These patterns are winners, and you should definitely add them to your BundleUp!  You will not be disappointed!
