One Thimble Issue 14 (*affiliate link) releases this week (in just a few hours) and I’m thrilled to review this e-zine packed with 10 fantastic patterns and 27 interesting stories/articles. Today I’ll share a bit about my first two issue 14 sews. This post contains affiliate links, but all opinions are mine.
I was planning to make an army green vest because every on-trend girl needs a good army green piece in her wardrobe, but then I saw the fabulous make by Angie and the one in One Thimble and thought I should showcase a different color. The fabric I used is more dusty pink than it’s coming through in the pics, but it’s really so good. I added pocket flaps to all four pockets to add a little more visual interest, but Karly is working on an add-on and will have a blog post about it up on Paisley Roots soon!
I made view B of the vest as I wanted to have the snaps show on the outside. With a solid color I think it helps break it up. I made a straight size 6 which fits great.
The back is stunning as well. And that hood? It’s designed the way I prefer with a center panel. It always has a much nicer fit with a center panel don’t you think?
Underneath the front snap flap there’s a separating zipper to make closing it up a breeze for little hands.
But wearing it open is probably my favorite style choice. Also, here’s a sneak peek at one of my new pattern designs in the works!
For underneath the vest I sewed up a Trillium Tunic (*affiliate link). Since Bean’s chest is a little small and I knew the tunic would be flowy around the hips, I sewed a size 5 to get the best fit. There’s a maxi dress view which I definitely need to make, but this tunic with 3/4 rouched sleeves is really sweet.
And the back has great coverage so it’s a nice option for leggings. Made with quilting cottons, this pattern will be used a bunch I can already tell!
There are many more things to tell you about One Thimble Issue 14 (*affiliate link), but you should hurry now to purchase this e-zine as the Early Bird Bonus ends this weekend. The pricing is in Australian Dollars so when you see the cover price remember that the American Dollar cost is much lower and it’s a STEAL. I’ll be back soon with more to share from this issue.
