You know that “go to” pattern you keep using time and time again? Well I have found mine! I sew up a lot of patterns, usually just once, maybe twice. However, this pattern I have sewn a total of 5 times already. I think that is a record for me! I also happen to be on the Blog Hop with this pattern! I’m sure you already know what it is just by the photos. You guessed it! It’s the Bow Back Beauty by Little Kiwis Closet!
This amazing pattern is full of options, like most LKC patterns. Coming in size NB-12yrs this lap style shirt features a bow back for your little ladies. Don’t think this is just for the girls though. She also includes an option for a plain back for the boys. Make a onesie, a dress or peplum top, or how about a hi-low dress. Sewing for the cold weather, long sleeved is the way to go. Is it summer time for you? Well then short sleeved or sleeveless is just perfect. Yes, all these options and more are included in this pattern. Seriously, the value is unbelievable! There is also a new unique way of doing binding, which is now my favorite way. This is a pretty fast sew. I can sew up one now in about 1.5-2hrs depending on the options I have chosen. Lydia does a great job with the tutorial, and I think even a knit beginner could make some awesome items with this pattern!
Now, to tell you about mine! When I tested this pattern I made a hip length peplum top with long sleeves and an onesie with skirt with short sleeves. I also had the pleasure of making this cute owl inspired dress in a size 4y for a special little girl. I decided to add the knit binding to the skirt for this one! Love! For the two for this tour I sewed for the spring! The first one is a double layered dress-Minnie inspired. To make the double layer I used the peplum pattern piece and the skirt pattern piece. Now, I did shorten the skirt as my girl is short to begin with and I lettuce-edged the hem. So this dress with the natural waist bodice length is a size 12mo, with the skirt being at the 3-6mo length. For the next garment I wanted something completely different! I wanted a romper!! So I scrolled through my other LKC patterns and decided to mash the BBB with the Romp n’ Play! I used the size 12mo bottom and that attached very nicely to the 12mo bodice with a little gathering. The only other change I made for this one is that I added an inch of length to the natural waist length bodice so that it was a tad longer. It is absolutely perfect!!!!
You really can’t beat the options in this pattern. Then if you are the adventurous type like me you can modify it so many ways to create a different look each time!!! I think next I will try a romper with a little skirt. This is now my go to pattern for baby gifts too! So, you ready to sew up yours yet? Well hop on over and pick it up.
