Guest Post- Split Sleeve Tutorial

I love seeing what my customers make with their patterns!  When Lydia from My 3 Little Kiwi’s showed off her tops we BOTH loved them, lol.  Then she started experimenting.  When she showed off her split shoulder version I asked if she wanted to a guest post and share ;).  Dolman tops, as well as other flowy tops, are currently very trendy and this season these peek-a-boo split shoulders are popping up everywhere as well.  So check out this tutorial on how to modify your own Kymy’s Dolman.  I have a feeling that it would also work well on the women’s Asymmetrical Drape Top.

Kymy’s Dolman Top & Tunic
Split Sleeve Tutorial

Guest Post By Lydia of My 3 Little Kiwi’s

I have recently become OBSESSED with the Kymy’s Dolman Top by Everything Your Mama Made.  It has a huge size range, from XS – 5x plus a bonus of maternity.

Buy your pattern here

I love how it has transformed me from a frumpy mummy to a stylish mummy within a matter of days.  I now have 5 of these tops (sewn over 2 nights) and I’m not planning to stop…I will continue to make them till my whole wardrobe is full of them.

So as soon as I got this pattern, I made myself 2 and then had an idea for making a split sleeve.  My first attempt wasn’t too much of a success I cut off some of the sleeve to create a rounded shape and this didn’t sit as well.  I also hemmed the split BEFORE I joined it at the bottom, which also didn’t work very well.

Right… So I made another one to try out another way of doing the split (so simple when you think about it), this one is for my sister, for her birthday.  I found this really neat fabric at Morelands and knew it would look great on her straight away.  (My hubby doesn’t really like it, his first words were “70′s!) anyway, I’m so glad I have a wee bit left as I love the colours on me too, and I will make me one with a band so tough luck if he doesn’t like it :-)

 So lets get on to how to make this very cute split sleeve, I assure you it is super simple.

When you sew your shoulder seams do not sew along the whole length.
Measure 2″ from the neck line and put a pin.
Now measure 1 1/2″ from the armhole and place a pin. 

SEW ONLY FROM THE EDGE TO THE PINS.

It will now look like this.

 

Press the seam open like this and topstitch down both sides 1/8″ from the folded edge/seam.

It will now look like this.

Now carry on with the rest of the tutorial.  Now that was simple wasn’t it?

I hope you have as much fun making these tops as I have. My next idea is to lengthen to a dress…watch this space.

Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour ~ Sunflower Circle

I can’t believe it is really day 8, the last day  of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour!  Today’s blog feature is over at Sunflower Circle, and I have to say I am giddy about her sister set.

Jessica made another coordinating sisters set which once again shows the versatility of this pattern.  Why am I so giddy?  Due to weather delays she had to make up a plan B, and plan B only had enough fabric for 2 of the 3 signature skirt layers!  I have been waiting to see someone try this as a tunic and I will say it does not disappoint.   Her simple skirt version for her older daughter is also super cute and embellished it a bit adding a fabric flower and adding something different (and awesome) to the hem.

Here are a few pictures but make sure to check out her blog for many more pictures as well as details about the materials she used and what she thought about the pattern.  She is already talking about her next one! lol

Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour ~ The Berry Bunch

It’s day 7 of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour and today’s blog feature is over at The Berry Bunch.  It’s hard to believe tomorrow is really the last day!

Jessica decided to go with the simply heirloom quality simple skirt version of Kenzie’s Party Dress but mixed it up by putting elastic in the bottom skirt hem to give it a bubble skirt effect!  And as she pointed out it is easy to remove the elastic at any point if she decides she wants it to be a regular hem!

Here are a few pictures but make sure to check out her blog for many more pictures as well as details about the materials she used and what she thought about the pattern.  She is already talking about her next one! lol

Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour ~ bebelambs

It’s day 5 of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour and today’s blog feature is over at bebelambs.  Lynn used the simple skirt version of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Pattern, but used a mix of prints/patterns for more of a boutique feel.  Even with the simple lines of the classic simple skirt version you can still make it your own!

Here are a few pictures but make sure to check out her blog for many more pictures as well as details about the materials she used and what she thought about the pattern.

Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour ~ PiePie Designs

It’s day 4, and the halfway mark of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour, today’s blog feature is over at PiePie Designs.

I know I have said this a bunch, but really I don’t know what else to say!  Once again this is another stunning dress, my jaw dropped when she sent me sneak peak pictures, it was hard to not share it sooner.  She mixed it up by upcycling a sheet for the main fabric, adding an underskirt and using French seams on the skirt to create a truly heirloom quality dress.  She also was clever & reused the wide hem of the sheet for the skirt.  The thick hem adds even more to the classic heirloom quality and look in my opinion!!!  This seriously has me ready to go cut up some of the vintage sheets in my sewing room!

Here are a few pictures but make sure to check out her blog for many more pictures as well as details about the materials she used and what she thought about the pattern.

Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour ~ Confessions of a Barefoot Housewife

It’s day 3 of the Kenzie’s Party Dress Blog Tour and today’s blog feature is from a good friend of mine over at Confessions of a Barefoot Housewife.

Vanessa used the Kenzie’s Party Dress pattern to make a flower girl dress for her brother in laws wedding.  She mixed it up by using a sash that matches the wedding party & made the simple skirt version but added a tulle overskirt on the top with flower petals inside the tulle!  She is newer to using patterns & the Kenzie’s Party Dress is an intermediate pattern.  Not because it is hard, but because I don’t go into detail on all the terms & techniques.  That being said there are links in the tutorial and with that & the power of google she tackled it!!!  Talking with her when she was finished she mentioned that she likes to stay in her comfort zone, lol.  My response was but going out of your comfort zone is often how you learn new things. ;)

That is how I learned much of what I know, I would do a challenging project that was a bit out of my comfort zone, google at times if needed to complete it and I learned a lot of very helpful techniques through the process I would have ever known about otherwise.

I love the simplicity & elegance of her dress, and how she put her own twist on it, but I have to say the back is by far my favorite, it is simply stunning!  Here are a few pictures but make sure to check out her blog for more pictures as well as details about the materials she used and what she thought about the pattern.

Knowing the little model I have to say I love her natural poses, lol.
