Round-ups of a pattern are so fun, don’t you think? It’s so hgelpful to see a pattern in different fabrics and on different bodies. I’ve asked for a few volunteers to help me spread the word about the new Jade Skirt, and a lot of people were excited about this new release too! Here’s some examples for your inspiration.

Hello friends, today I have some good news: the Jade Skirt has had a major update! It’s now available in our store, and those who already have it can find the Jade Skirt with updated size range in their account.
One of my last maternity makes was the Two Pegs Dress by Boho Banjo. I had never considered a Lagenlook design before, and the product photos did not seem like my style at all. But the technical drawing drew my attention, and wondered if I could make it work for me if I choose my fabrics wisely. And I’m so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one! I absolutely loved this dress while pregnant. Even though it’s a summer dress, I still wore it in winter with a cardigan.
I’ve been batch sewing lately – choosing 3 of 4 patterns, and then doing all the steps simultaneously. Have them all printed (I always have the A0 files printed, here’s some resources), then cut or trace them all, then cut them all out of fabric, then sew. This means that there is sometimes a big gap between sewing periods, but I’ll soon have a few new garments! The Cappuccino Cardigan was in my last batch, and it’s a design that I’ve been wanting to make for a few years. I love that you can just let it hang loose, you can wrap yourself, wrap your belly, or wrap your baby as you’re nursing. I have an RTW cardigan like this and I wear it all the time! MinervaCrafts was kind enough to provide me with the fabric, and I chose the most obnoxious color I could find. My wardrobe could use some color!
I’ve finally used that gorgeous crepe I’ve been hoarding, and I found the perfect pattern for it: the Roscoe Blouse. It’s a garment that will last me at least a few more weeks into my pregnancy because it has so much ease, but it’s not a maternity design so I can wear it for the summers to come, too!
