Hi everyone! This time I was invited to review Women's Lazy Days Pants and Scrubs. Pattern by Pickle Toes Patterns. First of all, let me tell you what this pattern offer when you purchase the pdf pattern:
Sizes: 0 - 30
Length: 7 different length
Hem: 5 options
Pockets: 3 pocket types
Fabrics recommendation: Stretch twill, stretch poplin, stretch denim or a stable knit such as French terry, Ponte, or interlock.
I finally brave enough to cut this stretch off white denim that have been in my stash for a few years now. I bought it in Asok, Bangkok. Originally, I see a white denim style for me when I bought this fabric but I need a good recommendation of jeans design pattern that have a clear instruction on how to construct the fly front. Do you have a recommendation?
Anyway, it has been awhile since my last sewing for my eldest daughter, so I thought, why not for this review, I make it in her size? I made it in size 8, but I think next time I will size down it because the butt area looks a little baggy and the front is a little puffy. I wish I know how to alter and manipulate the pattern to fit her body. I will learn the technique one day. One day! :)
I really enjoy every top stitching for the front pockets, back pockets and the side seams especially when they are perfect! And I also add a little color to the faux tab and I add a wooden button on each side. Just love it! There were some oooo and aaaawwww after every completed step! Haha...
I really love capri style and so I forced my style into my girl *evil laugh (nah, she was just agree to anything that I want to make for her. Sweet girl she is!)
I will be making a new pair of Lazy Days pants for myself next, mmm...maybe in a batik sarong fabrics. Yay!
I highly recommended this pattern for your daily wear or summer days pants or even for your PJ's! Just so comfy, well, at least that was my daughter said! ;) Let me tell you how comfy it is when I have mine! :D

Welcome to the Spring Blog Tour with Pickle Toes Patterns!
For this blog tour I will be reviewing the Night Night Gown.
I personally think this is a fairly easy design to sew and it can be a daily wear gown if you use the right fabric! My girl really love it!
For this design, the recommendation for the fabrics are cotton and cotton blends, flannel, seersucker or stable knit such as French terry, Ponte or interlock, and I use a stripes Japanese linen instead and a matching green corduroy for the bodice.
The design have 3 sleeves option - flutter sleeves, short sleeves and long sleeves. And 2 dress length, which are the tea length and floor length. I know my girl is suitable wearing the tea length and unfortunately, I do not have enough matching fabric to add the ruffles. Aww...
PTP instructions always have some tips on how to sew with knits, and if you do not have a serger, you can always use some stitches on your portable sewing machine, PTP covers that too!
You know we are learning new thing everyday, right? Although I have been sewing for years now, I have no idea what is the FOE (fold over elastic) and I do not have a matching rib knit/ cotton lycra that is used in this design for the neckline and armbands, but I was lucky that the neck holes is large enough for my girl to put her head through, so I finished the neck hole with similar Japanese linen cut on bias.
But I will surely dig some information on Fold on Elastic because I am pretty sure they don't sell it here :(
The PTP have layering option which save you a lot of headache and papers too! lol and assembling the patterns is easy.
The Night Night Gown have so many mix match option and comes in size 6 months up to 20 years! Woww wow...how cool is that, you save a lot of *ka-ching with just one pattern!

I did the Flora Dress for Naydia during the testing period, you can read all about it here. And I really love the simplicity of the design, so I decided to make one for Adra. The floral fabric was in my stash for umm...5 years? So, I need to use it before it gets ruin.
Originally, I bought the fabric for my bag making business, but the fabric is too soft and I was not into garment making back then. So when I saw the Flora Dress, I knew this is the perfect time to use the beautiful swiss cotton, and coincidentally...it is Spring soon! (Although there is no such thing as Spring in Malaysia hahaha!)
Adra was not so happy with the dress at first, not that she hate it...it is just because she was into PINK that whole two weeks *sigh
And now that she is all back to normal again, haha...I can now show you the dress I have made.
As you can see, there are side panel on the front of the dress, I use red corduroy to match the floral fabric. Oh my goodness, she is just too active and I had to snap hundreds of photos just to get a decent picture ( sometimes, I just gave up and use whatever there is in my camera :D
I am currently making the Seth Bag from ithinksew, can't wait to review the pattern for you! Don't get me wrong, it is not a paid review, I actually paid for the design for my personal use. I guess I am still a bag maker at heart, although I really enjoy sewing garment for my girls, bag making is still my first love!
Seth Bag is currently on sale until 21st April, 2018. Don't wait for my review if you need to buy it while it is still on sale! The $5.10 is just so irresistible lol
