Today I have the honor of introducing Jessica, one of the members of the team from A Couple of Craft Addicts! Heather and Jessica are the two mega-minds behind their site, and they both share a deep passion for all things crafty (hence – their name…lol).
Jessica is the seamstress between the two having sewn since High School, and as most home bloggers will say, fell in love with the art again once her kids were born! And we can all be thankful that she did, just look at some of the projects this tag-team duo comes up with….
How cute is that?!! I had to throw in the Jack Sparrow hair tutorial…with Halloween around the corner, it is simply GENIUS! (Click on the picture above to take you to any of the posts directly).
Thank you so much for being here Jessica, and sharing your love of sewing with us. I absolutely L-O-V-E what you made! So without further ado, I give you Jessica from A Couple of Craft Addicts!
Here is the full tutorial so you can make your own.
1/2 yard of fabric (I used basic quilting cotton, this is for a 2T)
1/4-1/2 yard of trim for ruffles, back panel, and bias tape if you want to make your own or you can buy a pack.
4-5 large buttons
1 small button
Your sewing machine and thread
1. Begin by cutting out your pattern. You can do this by tracing a shirt that fits your model. I always use a shirt that is a little loose. Fold the shirt in half and trace from the neckline, under the arm pit, and down the sides. Continue down until it is the length you want. You will be adding bias tape to the bottom so you don’t need to leave room for a hem. Then trace the sleeve, I extended mine to make a longer sleeve.
Thanks Jessica for having me guest post. I just love how we can share our ideas and knowledge through the digital world.
Thank you again so much for being here Jessica! I absolutely adore this shirt! And PS – what is the name of that fabric?!! LOVE IT!!!
