Using less then 2 yards of fabric from Whimsical Fabric, I designed this Easy Pocket Apron and you can have the free pattern.  The supplies, printable template, and instructions are available to you.

And look at all the fabrics on Whimsical Fabric online shop.  I very much appreciate working with the ladies at this shop.  The fabric quality is high offering designer collections, shipping is FAST, the customer service is supportive and helpful, the fabric prices and shipping costs are good & reasonable (and sometimes spectacular! on sale), and I especially enjoy the activities & challenges on their Facebook group – see HERE, and HERE, and HERE.

ADVTee Pattern Tour

{Pattern by Sofilantjes… Tour hosted by Sprouting Jube Jube}

This is an ADVTee shirt for my 6 year old daughter.  The pattern is new from Sofilantjes Patterns.  And naturally, I paired the t-shirt with a Liv skirt – a FREE pattern from Sofilantjes.  And keep reading for a discount offer…

The pattern released last month and I was eager to stitch one up for my girlie.  All of Anne’s patterns are really good!  The pattern pieces are simple to cut, include direction of stretch, print as layers, and line up perfectly.  The instructions are clearly written with plenty of drawings.  And my fave, a summary of steps at the end of the pattern for when this pattern is added to your regular rotation.

The shirt is knit fabrics with a ribbed neckband.  All of the fabrics are from my local Joann’s store.  The pattern can be made in a couple of different options with either long or short sleeves.  I choose to make elbow length sleeves because these are the most suitable length for a kindergartener – warmer than short sleeves but still short enough to stay out of paint and lunch 🙂

The pattern comes in sizes 12 months to 14 years – huge range of sizes!  and it is unisex to be sewn for boys or girls.

The shirt is a comfy knit t-shirt with flat v-neck or a crossover v-neck.  I made the crossover v-neck with velcro tabs to hold the yoke in place.  And there is even a little pocket that you can choose to put on the front of the t-shirt.

To make a complete outfit, I made a matching Liv skirt with the round front pockets and yoga style waist band.  Like most current pattern designers, Anne offers a FREE pattern so you can try out her designs.  Then, once you see how her patterns are written and see how her designs stitch together, you will look forward to getting her other patterns.  While I have worked with Sofilantjes Patterns for a couple of years now – see HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE – and continue to look forward to her new patterns, I hope you will try out the ADVTee Pattern or any of her others.

For the Pattern Tour, Anne is offering a 20% off discount with the code “CELEBRATE”… Bundles are excluded from this promotion and the code will be valid from November 30th to December 6th.  You can shop HERE.

Many bloggers are here this week to introduce you to the new ADVTee Pattern.  All of the sneak peeks so far have been amazing!  I hope you will enjoying seeing all of the versions.
