EASY FIT PANTS = SUPER QUICK PJ's! & a GIVE-AWAY!

 **The Winner is..CAROLYN! Comment #7. Congrats!! :)
Thankyou everyone!



I have been just dying to try out the Scientific Seamstress patterns! Last week I managed to!


I used the Easy Fit pants pattern to make pj' pants for Bon. (10). She is about a size 10, but long and lanky. These patterns are so well thought out. There is a printing guide that tells you what pieces to print, about 5 pages from memory. And then you simply tape the bits together where it tells you. But there's more...this gives you the template, and from this you then construct your own custom pattern piece, so they fit really well! The process is very quick and easy, and works!

There are lots of handy sewing hints and full pics throughout, the patterns essentially holds you hand all the way, so great for beginners! They sew up really fast too ( great for me, as I am quite impatient).

I used a lovely soft Sponge Bob woven from the CM Shop and topped with a Farbenmix  IMKE.  
A great jammie combo! 

These e-patterns are really well priced, and given they are multi sized...
BAZINGA! 
Even better value!  See them all HERE!


GIVE-AWAY!

I have ONE Scientific Seamstress e-pattern to give away..leave me a comment as to which is your fave Scientific Seamstress e-pattern and why!  I'll get Random.org to pick a winner Friday night!

Oh, love these pants, but I think I'll go the Raglan..I have a plan for Alex!
Thanks Lisa, great giveaway once again :D

I'd have to say the perfectly preppy skort. DD lives for skirts, but we are constantly in battle with covering up undies. Hopefully a skort will avert many a disastrous start to the morning :)

Those pants looks super comfy. I really love the precious dress pattern because it reminds me of the dresses my mum used to make.

Sara said...

I think the pants are actually my fave, purely because of the size range.

Leeah Murphy said...

The Emily Jumper is just adorable. I am always looking for new and fun PJ pants for my kids. What fun this on is. Love the trim on the bottom.

Jen said...

I have been wanting this pattern since I have heard the sizing is great. I love the portrait peasant top and helped my daughter use the pattern to make a dress for her first big sewing project. She is nine and it was easy!

I have several favorites - but if I had to pick one I would pick the Portrait Peasant top/dress! I have used it time and time again for a dress, shirt or pajamas!

Thanks so much for the chance to win! Can't wait to check back Friday to see who won!
