Introducing Ava and Betsy

Guess what peeps?  Not only is it a holiday Monday here in the states, but it's also new Bluegingerdoll pattern time. Woo Hoo, let's party with grilled burgers and sewing! Just don't mix the two unless fire and grease stains are how you like to unwind.

But enough of my nonsense, let me introduce you to the Ava Jacket and the Besty skirt.
The Ava Jacket is a slightly cropped kimono affair with 3/4 length cuffed sleeves. You can make it with a contrast collar/cuff, like I have, or use the same fabric for the entire jacket. My Ava has a 100% viscose shell and silk charmeuse collar, cuffs and lining.

Oh hello, pleased to meet you gallant prince outside of my photo frame. Check out my cufffffs.
Betsy is a pencil skirt with 3 different views. I'm wearing the high waisted view C, made up in silk satin. As you can see this baby has several style variations to tickle your fancy. Mmmmm so many pencil skirts, so little time.
I like multiple darts for my butt and I can not lie.  Sadly this pic doesn't show the great detail that is pleated kick pleat. Let me assure you that it is awesome.
For more in depth descriptions of the patterns and much better pictures than mine, hop on over to the Bluegingerdoll blog.  If you like what you see, you can pick up the new patterns in PDF and paper form over at the store at 10% off through the 28th. Hot patterns right off the printer, YUM!

P.S. I'm wearing the Closet Case Files Nettie bodysuit with Ava and Betsy.  More on that later cause it deserves it's own post.

  6. Froggie will reimburse you with cookies for giving bluegingerdoll all your money. :) I admit being sucked into a Fabricmart sale just because they had a bunch of cobalt fabric. More blue!

  7. I shall tell my handsome male servant to also bring you a drink. :) If only that was true, cause lounging all day sounds divine.

  9. It's the satin that makes my butt look great. :) Shiny shiny! Silk satin is nice to work with since it doesn't slide around at all when you cut it. Win!

  10. I was thinking this would be a great bed jacket if we were southern ladies with other people to do all the dirty work. :)
