Hi everyone, here is Lesley alias Frullemieke from the blog https://frullemieke.blogspot.be again.
Today I’m gonna show you a little hack on the Discoverer Tee Pattern, I’ve added a ruffle to it.
Here we go:
1. Print and tape the pattern and cut out the pieces.
2. Take the front piece and measure on the top line to see how long you gonna make your ruffle.
My daughter enjoys having crop tops of various lengths so I frequently modify the crop top to different lengths based on what she’s feeling like that day.
I typically have three different lengths I go to for my daughter. She currently wears the size 7/8. These lengths are the normal drafted length, shortened by 2.5 inches, and shortened by 5 inches. I use the same piece, I just fold it to remove the length.
Here are the three different lengths cut out with the front and back bodice pieces. The lemonade is the standard length according to the pattern, the watermelon is 2.5 inches removed and the be kind print has 5 inches of length removed.
I love the look of some fringe, especially for summer. It has that kind of a summer vibe to it. So I thought about it and searched my favorite Ellie & Mac patterns, to find that one pattern that screamed "hack me"! And I found the Kid's Discoverer Tee. A great shirt, that is easy to make and yet gives you plenty of opportunities to add your own creativity. This is the vision that I had in mind:
I'm so excited to be able to share with you my Open Sleeve mod for the Be Dreamy dress! You know, the dress with endless possibilities, that looks so good on every body type! :D
As soon as it came out, I knew I had to have it. And I had the perfect fabric for it.
Except. That I only had 3 yards- just shy of the recommended yardage- and being 5'10”, I was going to need every bit of it.
But I’ll let you into a little secret. They are SUPER easy! And I’m going to show you exactly how to do that using the Autumn Spice as a base. Here’s the one I created…. My friend didn’t even notice the zip until I pointed it out to her!!!
The Twist it Up Top came out recently and, while it’s really cute, we’ve had several requests for how to move the knot to the side of the shirt. Have no fear….it’s actually easier than you’d expect.
First, you’ll cut your back bodice piece out like normal. For the front bodice piece you’ll just cut it straight across. Do not cut out the knot section of the pattern.
