Monday Morning's Review and Giveaway: Precious Patterns


Another thing I dabble in is sewing.  While I'm not great at it, I really love to do it. My repertoire is very small,though. So I was thrilled to be given a chance to review 3 patterns from Precious Patterns.



The Review

I was given a choice of any 3 patterns. 
Here is what I chose:
  • 18" Doll Pants, Shorts, Skirt, Robe, Jacket, and Halter Top
  • Doll Shoes and Sweater/Sweatshirt
  • Gingerbread Girl, Snowman, and Plain Knot Apron for Girls

     The first pattern I tried was this Snowman, Gingerbread Girl, and Plain Knot Apron Pattern.



  Originally, I was going to make the Snowman apron.  But, I must have had a super busy month and had hard time finding time to sit down and sew.  Soon it was February!  But, that is no problem with this versatile pattern.  There are instructions to make a plain knot apron, too.  I revised my plan and found some cute Valentine's Day fabric. 

 I didn't get it done in time for Valentine's day, either. (note to self-make more time to sew)  I think the fabric I chose is cute any time of the year, though. Take a look!  I think it came out darling!


The pattern and instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The project was simple and quick to complete.  I really enjoyed making this apron and plan on making quite a few more of these! 

I made the doll halter top and matching skirt, too. Here is how they came out.
  This top and skirt were the simple and quick to make. And a BIG hit with my little Grits!
 
What I love about these patterns:
  • The instructions are written out step by step for you.  So, it's like having your girlfriend sitting there with you showing you how to do it.  
  • And if you can't get it by reading it, there are LOTS of pictures. It really helps me to see it before I try to sew it. 
  • The PDF format allows me to store them in my laptop. I just opened the file and carried my laptop to my sewing room. No more patterns to store!
