Pattern Review | Made for Mermaids Rowan Raglan

I had the pleasure of sewing up a few versions of the Rowan Raglan and i’m excited to finally be able to share.  I’m totally a sucker for being able to buy 1 pattern and use it for both kiddos AND have it fit both well.  I’m happy to report that this is one unisex pattern that I will most definitely be using again!

Read all about the multitude of options and get some inspiration from a few of the other reviewers on today’s Pattern Revolution blog.



The Ashley Bundle – Funktional Threads Sew-Up

Hey all!!  So excited to be rounding out our Funktional Threads week with the Ashley Bundle.  Thank you so much for checking out all our stops along the way (if you haven’t yet, i’ve linked them at the bottom)!  And big thank you to Lisa and Larissa for inviting me to join in and share today.


These patterns for the skort and top are listed individually or you can get them as a bundle.  Lets be honest, with the coupon at the bottom, it’s a no brainer to get both, I’m all for maximizing my pattern funds and the bundle is a fabulous deal.


Both patterns include sizes 2-16 so you can cover just about an girl your sewing for.  The skirt has the paneled version that i’m sharing here, in 2 different lengths; this is the longer version so she can have a bit of growing room.   There is also a really sweet petal version or just a basic  circle skirt.


It also includes the shorts to go under so there’s no worry about anyone singing “I see London, I see France…..” haha!! You know where that’s going right??   With a skirt that has this kind of twirl undershorts are a must so how great to have them built in!!


The top includes multiple sleeve variations, 2 neckline variations, the hood, and even 2 different lengths.   Here I used the sleeve piece that is used with the ruffled sleeves but left the ruffles off.  I think it leaves a great little cap sleeve on its own that’s perfect for school!  And really what girl doesn’t love a hood??


With all these options from both patterns, you could easily build a closet full of different combinations!!   I’d love to see what awesomeness you sew up so be sure to share in Funktional Threads Pattern group.  You’ll find tons of inspiration and lots of tips from others!
