Thread Faction - Girls Tank and pants set - Blog Tour!

Hi all!

How great are blog tours? Its so fantastic to see everyone's take on the same pattern, and to see which beautiful fabrics they've paired.

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)

*Disclaimer* Although I received this pattern for free, my opinions and review are my own.
