Mommy and me Christmas outfit blog hop

Today is my turn on  the mommy and me Christmas blog hop tour. The pattern I chose to use is the womens Lulu and the Girl's Lulu by Petite Stitchery and Co.

Originally this was going to be a grandma, mommy, and granddaughters,  but there have been some setbacks this week.  So, I just made the tops for one of my daughters and granddaughters. Mine and my other granddaughters will come later.

This is a very easy pattern, especially when you use a serger. I love my serger and use it when making clothing.

The fabric for this came from my friend Serena at https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1727140940941844&ref=content_filter.  It is a cotton lycra. I had never tried this fabric before.  As soon as I got my daughters top done, I had to try it on and I love the fabric.  So I thank you Serena for helping me. 

This pattern is on sale through today, December 11th, and I appreciate Ashley working with me on keeping it on sale for a bit longer for my readers. I would love it if you would use my link https://petitestitchery.com/?promo_rep=43. I do earn a small commission, and your price does not change.

As I mentioned this was a very easy pattern. I found the sizes I made fit my models very well. This is definitely a good to pattern for me. I can do short sleeves, elbow length or long sleeves.   I hope you will try this pattern out.

If you were to make one, who would you make it for and what colors would you use?  Please leave a comment below. I will respond on this page, but if you want it in your email, please leave your email address.

    watch and see Tunic and dress pattern by Ellie and Mac

    I was lucky enough to get a chance to test this new
    Pattern from Ellie and Mac.


     These patterns are pdf patterns. You can print each size individually, or you can print all sizes and trace them. I usually print all sizes and then have a master copy. I don'the print the instructions. I save them on my tablet ando use it while sewing.  After printing my pattern, I tape it and trace the size I need.  Then I get to the fun part. The sewing.

    The pattern has cutting lines for a tunic or dress. I chose to do the tunic length.  I used a piece of crushed velvet (also known as panne velour). It is a 2 way stretchome, meaning it stretches from selvage to selvage.  The way this pattern is cut is mirror image and all in one piece, except for the neck binding and the sleeves, so I was down on the floor. I cut out 1 piece, then laid it on the fabric to put it right sides together, and make sure it was really right. Because sometimes I do confuse myself.

    This pattern really is an easy sew.   Lindsey over at Ellie and Mac, gives a lot of detailed instructions.
     I plan to team this with aair of navy or black slacks. I may even do leggings. What would you wear with this? I would love  to hear your comments.

    I have seen this tunic/dress done in a wide variety of fabrics. So, use this affiliate link http://ellieandmac.com?aff=183 and get it for some of your holiday parties.  You can read about another one by my friend Aaronica here https://theneedleandthebelle.com/watch-see-dress/
