Little Lizard King Pocket Romper Blog Tour

I think Summer is finally here! And at my house that means I'm dressing the littlest up in adorable rompers! Here lately I've been stuck on which pattern I would like to try for our next rompers, and Little Lizard King's newest pattern, the Pocket Romper was just the perfect addition to our summer wardrobe.

Here's a quick rundown of the awesome features of this pattern!

  • Back, Leg and Strap Elastic create an easy fit.
  • Size Range from 0-3M-3T
  • Professional, Computer drafted pattern. The tutorial has great photos and instructions for a quick project.
  • Instructions for a Snap Crotch
  • This PDF Pattern contains a range of options that will surely be a huge hit! 
For my version of the romper I chose to leave off the pockets, as Brooklyn doesn't really care if it has pockets or not, and I didn't want any other details drawing attention away for the adorable fabric I picked for her romper.

I snagged this adorable fabric at Hobby Lobby and it's just been waiting for the perfect pattern and I think this turned out to be adorable! 

Do you know how hard it is to get a 1 year old to cooperate for pictures? It wasn't easy! Thankfully she allowed for a few pictures and highly enjoyed trying to pick the Gold Arrows off of her romper.

I just can't get enough of how adorable Brooklyn looks in this adorable new pattern! I see many more of these in my future, and the possibilities are endless!

Now if you don't have this pattern yet, head on over to Little Lizard Kings Website to scoop it up! But it may be your lucky day as Little Lizard King is letting me give a free copy of the pattern away!!

CKC- Baby Nova

If you dont already know I live in a pretty small town in Kentucky and there's not many people around, or my age who share the same love I have for sewing and design! I recently found out one of the new designers for CKC not only had some cute designs but lives super close to my neck of the woods!

Morgan Schulten-Tolentino is the designer for Nova and the Baby Nova which is an adorable dress with large flutter sleeves, regular and paneled skirt options and double layer hem ruffles. This dress was a pretty quick sew, taking me only a few hours to complete. This dress has long straps with attached flutter sleeves that tie in the back in two button holes, the pattern also includes directions to add a total of 4 button holes to allow for different ways to tie the dress in the back.

The bodice of this dress has lots of room for trims, embellishments or a monogram. The paneled skirt option has so many cute possibilities, here lately i've been a big fan of the paneled skirt look!

This face right here sums up the babies thoughts on having to model for me, it wasn't easy this little thing thought the dress would make a good snack!

Here you can see how the straps tie in the back. The back also includes a line of elastic above the button holes for a nice fit. 

You can purchase your own copy of the pattern here:
