Nina and Ollie


You’re about to see one of the main reasons I started this blog…so I could spam people with pictures if they chose to click 😁😁😁

This is Ollie (the top) and Nina (the skirt) from BLAVERRY. I participated in the re-test of these patterns because she is updating all her older patterns with perfected fit, clickable table of contents, nested sizes so it’s easier to blend sizes, instructions on how to blend sizes, and a coloring/design page, which you might initially think is for the kids, but I sometimes find them helpful when trying to visualize how a print will look sewn up, so sometimes I color them too!!

The final pattern for the skirt has been lengthened slightly in the back, to account for the extra space the backside takes up, so the hem hangs straight. HALLELUJAH!!!! This is my favorite part of this pattern. Except that it takes very little fabric, and is incredibly quick to sew. That might also be my favorite part πŸ™‚

The top is a sleeveless top with two collar options. It is a quick sew as well, and I got to finally use some hook and eyes that I picked up at a garage sale a few years ago…I think I got a shoe box full of notions, trim, etc… for $5, and I’ve used so many things from that box.

Check out this photo overload of all three versions I made.
