Blogiversary Tour: Jennuine design

I am so sorry for the delay in the tour. I have some annoying health issues going on right now, and I was basically a zombie yesterday. I signed up for getting older, just not like this. But on to the good things: Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there. Especially for the ones that this day was designed for. Happy Mother’s Day to the mothers who are no longer able to hold their children. For you, I wish you much love and healing on this day, and everyday.

So on to the next designer: Jennuine Design I got a chance to work with her testing her Haven Acres collection and I was so impressed with how much detail she put into her patterns, as well as all the detail into fit. She was very receptive to feedback and making the pattern even better. And let me tell you, in this narcissistic world we have, that is so refreshing. You can find my posts about her Haven Acres collection HERE and you can also find my use of her Dressage leggings HERE

First, I am going to share my favorite pattern from the Haven Acres Collection: Dressage Leggings along with her LOL Swing Top. I used a sweater knit and lycra knit to make the leggings, and this voile for the top. I wanted the top to be light and breezy for our hot weather we get here. It made the perfect combination, as well as being light and spring inspired. I did mess up by sizing up since she is kind of in between sizes lately, so I seamed the shoulders up so that I can let it out as she grows more. I just love the volume and shape of this for the little ones. And you can’t tell, but I ironed the hell out of this shirt. I guess it did not want to stay pressed.

I am also going to share my Verona Dress that I tested also. This is a gorgeous vintage style dress with a unique lapel detail.

I really like all the details and features of the patterns from Jennuine Design. If you want to get a feel for a new to you designer, she has 2 patterns that are free and also great tools to use to teach a child or someone new to sewing. The Camper Cowl and the Pip Skirt. It is a great way to try a designer before buying a pattern (but I don’t think you will regret trying her patterns.) She has also paid attention to details like introducing you to methods that you may be unfamiliar with which ends up leaving you with a gorgeous finished product.
