I'm super excited by the collaboration between Thread Faction and The Material Girl Australia! What a fantastic opportunity for two inspiring women to come together.
As always, Missy Rose (from The Material Girl Australia) had a rather large representation in my fabric stash, so it was difficult to know which one to choose. My amazing Husband did a fantastic job in picking out these two and I think they work really well together.
This is my darling middle daughter, Esperance. She's learning the whole toilet training gig, and was SO excited that I had made her cute undies and a matching singlet. She loved them so much, she wore them to bed that night (with a nappy underneath, because we are definitely NOT night toilet trained!) :D
This was a super-quick sew! I have a 3 week old baby, so time is at a premium these days. Even with interruptions (baby needed a feed/kids were apparently STARVING...) it still only took me an hour, start to finish!
The fit is spot on! I am not awesome (yet) at bindings, but with these instructions, and just taking it slowly, I achieved a really great result. All of the inner seams can be finished with an overlocker/serger, but that machine is not essential to make this adorable set. A regular sewing machine is just fine :)
Liz's patterns are always really well written. I'm sorry I hadn't discovered her patterns when I was new to sewing, because she makes it very easy with in depth written instructions as well as diagrams. For this pattern, she has even made a video tutorial to help out those that may need it.
Pattern #123 - Girls Tank and Pants Set is available now on Thread Faction's website (not an aff link)
