Five and Ten Designs - Volume One

Monday, July 22, 2013

Five and Ten Designs is a collaboration between 5 indie sewing designers all of whom love to sew for children. Sharing our love for this timeless art with pattern block divergence. Each look is unique to each of our styles, yet, connected by the original block pattern.  It's a truly original sewing experience with endless possibilities!

Volume One eBook is a collection of pattern alterations based on one original bodice block pattern. With clear instructions and step by step high resolution photos as a guide, you will be able to sew ten completely different looks by the time you are done with it. Using the bonus accessory patterns, you can connect with your own inner designer by adding a collar here, a cap sleeve there, or a pocket to any of the designs, thus making it all your own.  Sew one, or sew a whole wardrobe, all from just one basic pattern.

Take a peek at the Volume One Lookbook:

Here is the first of my two contributions to Volume One: Look No. 4.

My love for vintage came out in this design: the peter pan collar, the button-up bodice, the cap sleeves, and the full, twirly skirt.  It's all very 1950s, yet, so wearable today.
