Today I’m sharing a fun pair of My Little Pony Freestyle Harem Capris I made for the EYMM Blog Tour. Make sure you check out the links below to the other ladies on the tour and their fabulous creations.
This is the first summer Little Bit hasn’t been in a year round program and we’ve had some flexibility on how she spends it. Her weeks will be split between summer camp at her school (where they are required to wear the camp t-shirt everyday) and various camps at her dance studio where the dress code varies from leotard and tights to comfortable clothing depending on the camp of the week. I sewed up a pair of EYMM Freestyle Harems to add to the bottom heavy summer wardrobe she’s going to need.
These will be perfect for the dance studio with lots of freedom of movement and a fun addition to her summer camp uniform.
Little Bit is currently at the upper end of size 5s, so I went ahead and made her size 6s so they should last her through the summer and into next fall.
I have another pair of long pants cut out in black knit that I need to sew up as well. I can definitely see these becoming a staple of her wardrobe.
Make sure to check out the rest of the Freestyle Harems Blog Tour during the next week. (Note: The links below won’t be live until their scheduled date.)

Join EYMM and 24 fellow bloggers as we celebrate the first 24 months of our pattern shop with a huge sale and giveaway! We will be featuring 8 different patterns for women and girls, as well as having a Manic Monday sale and a huge site-wide sale. There is also a great giveaway at the bottom of this post. Don’t wait because you don’t see sales like this often from EYMM and it will be over before you know it!
EYMM has some fantastic patterns and I’ve loved everything I’ve made from them. EYMM’s Piko Top was the first pattern I purchased for myself. And their every day essentials pattern has been used for some of my favorite night gowns. But today I’m going to show some of my recent projects from EYMM.
First up is the Calla Lily Skort pattern for girls. This was such a quick and easy sew (even more so when you leave off the shorts). The hardest part of this skirt was the fabric I used. Little Bit saw this fabric on a trip to Jo-Anns about 6 months ago and it’s been sitting in my stash wondering how to use it with all the sequins. It actually sewed up better than I was expecting, but the needle would shift left or right when it hit the sparkles.
I left off the shorts portion as I thought this would be the perfect thing to thrown on over a Leotard after dance or gymnastics and can sill be worn with shorts underneath.
Next up is the Four Seasons Cardigan and Duster pattern which like all the others in this post is available in women’s and kids sizes. Both Little Bit and I have a tendency to be cold in public spaces that have A/C blasting in the summer yet we both aren’t huge fans of long sleeves, so for both of us I opted for the 3/4 sleeves.
I made mine in a light weight hacci sweater knit which should be the perfect weight for wearing around my office.
Little Bit’s is made out of a medium weight stripped knit that should warm her up nicely in cold spaces this summer and transition nicely into her wardrobe for fall. Hers I added a hood to because well, hood are fun.
Lastly, is the newly released Capsule skirt. Which will probably become a staple in both of our wardrobes. It’s such an easy skirt to wear and has the bonus of having the option of hidden side seam pockets. Little Bit had a Knights and Princess theme day at camp, so the night before I was able to whip up this skirt in less than an hour. I opted out of the pockets for this sew, but will definitely include them in the future.
One of the things I love about EYMM patterns is the size range that is included — kids NB – 18 or women’s XS-5X, and they often have bundle pricing for those patterns available for both girls and women. The patterns go together easily and the results are fantastic.
Happy Anniversary to Everything Your Mama Made & More! Thank you for including me in your blog tour.
This was the first time I worked with hacci and it was enough of a challenge for me to cut that I wasn’t even going to try for matching the stripes. It turned out to be easier than I was expecting and this is the perfect thing to grab when there is a chill in the air.
