I was beyond excited to be chosen to test the newest collection by Pattern Anthology called The Make Believe Collection. This is a collection of 4 unisex top patterns – a t-shirt, a button-down shirt, a hoodie, and a bomber jacket. They also have the option to buy it with 4 pants patterns, which is a steal of a deal! These patterns are heavily discounted if you buy the collection, but it’s only available as a collection for the rest of the week! After that the patterns will have to be purchased individually at full price! Since I tested all 4 patterns, I will split this into 4 posts so I can post tons of pictures of each one and not overwhelm you!
The Bookworm Button-up Shirt was designed by Melissa of Blank Slate Patterns. This is a classic button-up shirt with some really unique little touches…there area so many options included with this pattern, it’s hard to fit them into a short description. Melissa has a diagram and a better description of all the options than I could give you Here. I tested the size 18 months for Lucy and I made View C, which is a girly version with a deeper back pleat than the boy version, a high-low hem, bow pockets, and bow sleeves! I went the classic/boring route for this and used just plain white Swiss Dot Cotton…and I am in love with how it turned out!! I also recently made the little skirt she’s wearing…it’s just a 2x her waist elastic waistband knit skirt…my favorite kind, cause they are so super duper easy!
