Good Night

Made for Mermaids just released the Catherine Pattern set and I can’t stop making it.

I knew I wanted to try making a nightgown for my little love. I decided to skip the sleeve flounce this time. (or rather I held myself back from sewing another sleeve flounce…because it is so pretty!)

SONY DSC

The nightgown modification details are available on this page from the the pattern designers. It is super easy!

This version is made with all rayon spandex from Angel Textiles and JB Fabrics in Downtown LA (tips for navigating the district and favorite stops along the way)

In this picture she reminds me of Wendy waiting for Peter Pan…so of course now I want to make her a baby blue short sleeve version. #sewallthecatherines

I’ll be sharing all of my Catherines, but you can also see what others are sewing in the Made for Mermaids Facebook Group.

For the detail oriented seamstresses out there: My daughter is wearing a size 2, she has a 21″ chest measurement and is age 3. And I made no pattern modifications, except to cut the dress length before adding the ruffle.

Hurry and checkout all Catherine Release party fun and stay updated as the Mermaids prep for their 40K Party! You can view photos of all the options available, checkout the mods, that will give you even more options (and snag the pattern at a discount, of course!) at Made for Mermaids

I’d love if you would stay tuned here, or follow me on Instagram @clothed.in.vermillion to check-out all the Catherines that I have sewn so far and the many more to come!

And please join the community and be inspired by all the Catherine creations (big, small, and doll sized) over in the Made for Mermaids Facebook group.

Boutique Boho Catherine from Made for Mermaids

Made for Mermaids just released the Catherine Pattern set and this quick and beautiful sew just makes my heart happy. And my baby’s heart happy. Win-Win. (or if you are a Michael Scott fan, then we can call it a Win-Win-Win, because we all win.)

SONY DSC

Any excuse to sew up a Catherine and I am going to take it! So……..when my beautiful little boho babe decided to paint her cream floral Catherine with one of my lipsticks 45 minutes before we had to leave, I jumped at the challenge to sew up another as fast as I could.

Boom. Even had plenty of time to stop for coffee on our way.

Now, pattern mixing is not my forte, but we both love how this one turned out! I went with the square neckline, regular flounce sleeve, and ruffled dress options.

This version is made with a floral brushed poly and leopard rayon spandex both from JB Fabrics in Downtown LA (tips for navigating the district and favorite stops along the way)

That neckline is just gorgeous!

(please excuse the lining showing a little, I was in a hurry and forgot to under-stitch, as per pattern instructions)

I’ll be sharing more, but you can also see what others are sewing in the Made for Mermaids Facebook Group. 

Don’t forget all the options available! You get 3 necklines, 5+sleeves,  3 lengths and 3 hem styles. Plus all the hacks and mods that the pattern designers and fellow sewcialists’ posts in the facebook group make this pattern a workhorse.

For the detail oriented seamstresses out there: My daughter is wearing a size 2, she has a 21″ chest measurement and is age 3. And I made no pattern modifications, however, I sewed this dress up early during testing and a little bit of length was added to the bodice for the ruffle dress option to make the dress just a touch longer.

Hurry and checkout all Catherine Release party fun and stay tuned as the Mermaids prep for their 40K Party! You can view photos of all the options available, checkout the mods, that will give you even more options (and snag the pattern at a discount, of course!) at Made for Mermaids

Catherine, Queen of Flounce

Made for Mermaids just released the Catherine Pattern set . The classic style lines and the many options available make the Catherine a cute little style chameleon. I’ll be sharing here, but you can also see what others are sewing in the Made for Mermaids Facebook Group. 

SONY DSC

Catherine is packed with options. You get 3 necklines, 5+sleeves,  3 lengths and 3 hem styles. Plus all the hacks and mods that the pattern designers and fellow sewcialists’ post in the facebook group make this pattern a workhorse.

My favorite feature from the Catherine Patterns is the definitely the sleeve flounce (and the unlined lace bodice is pretty amazing too!).

SONY DSC

Like every pattern from the Mermaids, the construction of Catherine is quick and easy with plenty of photos in the printable pdf pattern to help guide you.

SONY DSC

My girl loves beautiful dresses but they have to be comfortable. And this pattern meets all her criteria!

SONY DSC

This version is made with a floral brushed poly, cream stretch lace, and rayon spandex for the neck binding and ruffle lining.

SONY DSC

In the end the most important thing is always that twirl factor.
