There is a new collection coming from Petite Stitchery & Co today! It’s the Boho Collection, which speaks to my soul! I tested a few of the patterns, and I will share those with you, but there are also other fun patterns, including baby versions!
The patterns I tested were Willow, a woven tunic or dress, which has a back yoke, and divided back skirt, so you can print mix or color block to make it your own! We had the windiest day for pictures, and there were none of the front that didn’t have her hair flying all crazy around her face 🙂
This is Laurel, a knit tunic that dips down on the sides. The ruffle at the bottom is so sweet, and makes my girls love it so much! You can use lace or trim, to make this quick sew even faster!
And I also tested the Jasper Vest. I love this pattern. There don’t seem to be a lot of vest options for girls in the pdf pattern world, and this one is so dramatic and fun. I used white denim, and white scuba knit for my two layers. This is such a chic look!
Be sure to check out the rest of the patterns in the collection! They’re all on sale for the release!
Black floral: Hancock

Here we are again with Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates, bringing you inspiration for what to sew for Valentine’s Day! My husband and I don’t do much to celebrate this holiday, sometimes we’ll go out, but never on the actual day! 😉 But my mom always left us gifts on the breakfast table on Valentine’s day, and I loved that little unexpected (even though she did it every year) gift. You’re still kind of coming off of the Christmas high, and at least I wasn’t looking forward to a birthday for several more months, so it always felt special. So I like to do the same thing for my kids. Having children makes things more magical, especially holidays. I love to make this one fun, just like the rest. So we usually bake and decorate sugar cookies, we also usually make lots of cards, and go crazy with the stickers and glitter.
I knew my Valentine’s attire would be casual, since I’m spending the day with my kids. I used Made for Mermaids Mama Ava since it’s the perfect silhouette to be comfy, but with gorgeous fabric, you don’t feel sloppy! I also wore the Peg Legs from Patterns for Pirates. I think these are one of the best beginner projects, and they give you such impressive results! (I was on day 2 of wearing these, so all I can see are the baggy knees, but they really fit so perfectly!)
And then, because it’s fun, I put on a little more make up, some jeans and heels, and made it the perfect outfit for a casual dinner with my husband. That’s as fancy as we get anyway 🙂
My fabric for this shirt is double brushed poly, from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I love the tighter pattern of the floral, sometimes when the floral is more in clumps, you have to worry about pattern placement more, but this one is so gorgeous, and I love the colors! My leggings were double brushed poly from So Sew English.
I think Valentine’s day is top of my favorite holiday list. I love every happy thing about it! I’m planning what to sew for my kids, and I’ll share that soon.
