If I can ever find the time...

Finding time to work and sew with a newborn has been much harder than I anticipated. Much harder. To prove it, I have these two patterns written. They have been written, photgraphed and modeled. All I need to do is type them up and send them to testing and then they will be ready for the shop. I am really hoping to have them ready in the next month because I hate having these projects partially finished. Plus they are just too cute not to be listed in my shop!
 
This one is an elbow length ruffle sleeve twist on a peasant dress. I plan to layer it over jeans and leggings once the weather cools off (keep in mind my daughter was modeling this in August)


This one is actually a pattern written for knit fabrics. It looks fancy but is actually quite easy and would be perfect for beginners or those who have never tried knits.

What do you think?

Cute, cute, cute! I especially like the knit top - it's really different than other patterns I've seen. I have daughters in size 5 & 9 if you need testers :-) Angie mamalusco at ortelco dot net

Hi! I'm your return customer. I never commented before, but too excited not to this time. Too cute!! Love the new patterns, I'd snap 'em up in a beat! Will wait patiently :)

Sabrina these are both so cute!! I have some knits just waiting for me to get a pattern for them, so I'm going to be looking out for that tester email! I know how hard it is though to do all that. This craziness will pass, and you'll have solid chunks of sleep time soon! (The only time I can ever work is after my daughter is in bed for the night.)
