Lillestoff Jorna!

Have I really never blogged about this masterpiece?!

lilihouse

My friend Rae just posted this great blog about her favorite knit fabrics.   Since I am SO LUCKY and get to sew with her at Sew Ann Arbor meet-ups, she has seen me use some Lillestoff… specifically, this amazing if not pretty racist “Indian” fabric.

Of course I made a Jorna in tank length.

Was it ever warm outside?  Were there ever flowers?  What does grass smell like?

You can see lots of amazing different Lillestoff fabrics here, and you can even own your own racist Indian fabric by buying here.

Make a Jorna with me!

I’m teaching a class at Pink Castle Fabrics all about sewing with stretch knit fabric.  AND WHAT BETTER WHAT TO LEARN ABOUT SEWING KNITS THAN BY SEWING A JORNA!  ::fist pumps::

Make a jumper! Wear it with jeans!

In this class participants will be given the complete pattern for the Jorna dress, the Jorna junior, and the maternity-style Jorna. Throughout the class you’ll learn tips and techniques for working with jersey knit, how to do an all-in-one bodice lining, and you’ll leave with a finished garment!

The Jorna dress comes in sizes XS-XL for women, 2T-5T for toddler aged girls. The “Knocked-Up Jorna” is for pregnant women sizes XS-XL (pre-pregnancy sizes). The patterns come with length options, making this a garment you can make again and again, achieving different results that are always flattering.

Knocked-Up Jorna Maternity Dress Pattern

Are you in the family way? Baking a bun in your womanly oven? Then I’ve got GREAT news for you!  A brand-new Jorna pattern – the Knocked-Up Jorna! 

button3

This dress pattern will fit pre-pregnant sizes XS-XL.  A comfortable knit dress, perfect for the growing pregnant form. A semi-fitted bodice that extends to an empire waisted flounce. This jumper is long enough to be worn on its own during hot days, but looks great with skinny jeans or leggings. An outfit that can grow with you and remain in your rotation post-pregnancy.

This pattern is recommended for stretch knit fabrics, such as jersey or rayon-poly blends. Four pieces, no darts, no zippers, and no binding makes for a fast assembly! All-in-one lining creates clean lines at the neck and armholes.

Available on etsy and craftsy.

Jorna Jr. – a toddler’s dress pattern

Just three weeks after the launch of my Jorna pattern, I am so happy to announce the Jorna Jr!  Same silhouette but made to fit 2T – 5T young ladies.

penny1-2

Includes two length options. This is a comfortable knit outfit, perfect for those hot summer days. The tank looks adorable with leggings or pants. The dress begs to be twirled! Great for everyday wear or use as a stylish swimsuit cover!

At just $6 for the pattern, and utilizing just 1 to 1 1/2 yards of jersey knit, this is a cost-savvy way to dress your dearest in comfort and style!

AND since it’s so much fun to matchy match, why not look into my MOMMY-DAUGHTER option?!  For just $12 (a $3 discount) you can get BOTH the Jorna and the Jorna Jr. pattern downloaded ASAP.

Thanks for reading, and happy sewing!

Positive Space Quilt Along – Coloring Pages

I hope some of yu are planning on joining me for the Positive Space Quilt Along!  I’m getting excited to make my FOURTH of these quilts!   Get your pattern HERE.

After playing with the coloring page, I think I’ve decided on making a bit of a masculine version this time around.  I’m using Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black for the squares (my first time having all of the squares be the same fabric) and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax for the plus signs.  Kona PFD for the background.

Make your own coloring page by using THIS IMAGE. 

Don’t forget, you can use the code POSITIVE15 at Pink Castle Fabrics throughout October to get a 15% off discount!

ALSO – If you’re willing to buy a little extra background fabric, I’ll be showing you a short cut for the quilt.  Although the directions in the pattern show the best way to cut-out the pieces for conserving fabric, this exclusive QAL tip will save you time where it costs you fabric.  Pick up an extra 1/2 – 1 yard and embrace a willingness to wing-it!
