Have you heard? Everything Your Moma Made & More is celebrating 2 years! This is my first time participating in a blog tour and I’m so excited to be part of this one. Check out the end of this post for a link to all the blogs on tour, a discount code, and a chance to win some fabulous prizes!
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.
