SLPco Holiday Blog Tour 2019





Welcome to the second day of magic at the Simple Life Holiday Blog Tour 2019! The fun continues! I’m so honored to be among the awesome bloggers within the tour; it not only gets me sewing my holiday outfits early (cha-ching!) —  but it also enlivens my feed with such beautiful, festive, and magical creations

As part of the holiday fun, there is a SALE from 11/11-11/25 that you can enjoy along with fun giveaways each day. So…let’s take a peek at my little gal’s holiday Mia!

My Pattern of Choice for the 2019 Blog Tour
I chose the Mia Top, Dress, and Maxi in knee dress length because of its gorgeous back detailing. I’m usually a sewer of knits, and I wanted to enjoy the woven process–how the natural fibers beautifully steam, how the pattern’s design lends for a precise fit, how the button closure and elastic back add the most adorable detail while still being very beginner-and-time-friendly.

The only modification I made to the pattern was the added skirt border. There is a border for the Top version within the pattern, and I loved that idea. I used 6” for my width (which will be folded in half) and the same length as the skirt pieces (x2, just like the skirt). And then I followed the same directions offered for the Top version.



I adore how it adds just enough “pattern” when split like this between the bodice and skirt. These gorgeous fabrics were provided by So Sew English, and they have a most incredible secret …. 🤫 … they’re Glow In The Dark! Think of all of the light parades and dark-room Christmas concerts and plays. My daughter is so excited to be another bright-shining light within the dark, winter sky!

Note:  Many of my blog posts contain affiliate links. In the blogger world, this is a beautiful thing and one of the ways our sewing community supports one another. At no additional cost to you, if you love a pattern I highlight and purchase it, I receive a small portion of the profit as a thank you from the pattern company. I only ever sew what I love and believe in (I choose every pattern I sew); fabric, time, and our ethical responsibility are too precious and costly to do otherwise. xo! Jennifer
