Petite Stitchery & Co has been busy these past few months designing their new Boho Collection that just released (and is on sale, but not sure for how long).
I tested two of the new patterns in this collection. Please know that they patterns have been updated and the pictures are from the testing phase so some things have changed (such as shortening the band on the sleeves above so it doesn’t dangle past the wrist). If you have a question just email me or leave a comment! Petite Stitchery also has an amazing team of testers and many are posting their outfits on Petite Stitchery’s Facebook group here. And at the bottom of this post I’ve linked to a few other bloggers sharing their creations from this collection!
Up first is Hazel (baby version can be found here), a wonderful knit tunic with the lower sleeves gathered below the elbow and banded at the bottom to create a full lower sleeve. The neckline on this pattern is also different, in that it is finished with a facing rather than a band. I added some poms-poms to several of the seams of this shirt and made the flower headband and pin.
The next pattern I tested was the Jasper Vest. I sewed this vest up for my neighbor’s daughter, and she loved it. This pattern is especially great for a tween girl. Depending on how you sew it, it’s reversible. I hand stitched the bias binding on one side so ensure a clean look on both sides. From my understanding the instructions are going to cover a few different construction methods based upon the fabric being used, so don’t let the bias binding put you off.
I made the felt flower pin and will hopefully have a tutorial posted soon on how to make your own.
This pattern features a two piece side panel that creates curved seam lines that makes this pattern different from other vest patterns I’ve seen.
Besides hand sewing the bias binding, this pattern is a pretty fast sew. From printing the pattern to finish (besides binding) this pattern took me about 2 ½ hours.
Here are the links to some more inspiration!
- KuttieCouture sewed up 5 of the patterns so is spreading her posts over three days. Here you can find her version of Hazel and Tansy, which is a pants pattern that can be sewed in woven or knit. She posted about the Laurel knit dress here. Lastly she wrote about the Clover, which is designed for woven fabric, here.
