Finally able to spill the beans!!! Willow & Co are releasing 10 new patterns April 22nd. And I have been SO LUCKY as to test two of their patterns.
The ASH Jumpsuit and the ELM raincoat Poncho. We are in love.
I actually made three ASH jumpsuits - it is so versatile! I made the above two piece one with peach polka dot cotton fabric and black linen pants. We love it!
My daughter initially picked out the fabrics on the picture below, but I didn't have enough of the denim to make the pants... then someone in the tester group mentioned shorts!!!
These are made as the jumpsuit. My daughter loooves jumpsuits, I see a lot more in the making for summer - I have so many ideas with this pattern, and it is soo quick. During my testing week, my daughters told me one night they had a dress up party the next evening, and one of them wanted to be Princess Jasmine.
Another ASH was in the making! And it is so quick (and modest) that she ended up going as Princess Jasmine!
The next pattern I made was the ELM raincoat poncho. Now, she didn't really want a poncho, until I told her it was a raincoat poncho... of to the fabric store, we found this really cool laminated cotton or oilcloth (all I know is that it's supposed to be a tablecloth... )
We are both so much in love! I haven't put the snaps in yet, since my fabric is very sturdy, I needed some sturdy snaps, they'll come in today.
While I was finishing up the poncho, my daughter actually said she wished it was raining... that's how much she loves it!
This is not a quick sew, but it is so worth the time spent!!!
Now, head on over to Willow & Co. The patterns will be sold as a package deal and they can be bought individually.
(The opinions written here are all mine and my daughter's)
I will give you more pictures of each pattern in the days to come. I think they are so wonderfull, they deserve a blog post of their own!
