I am so excited to launch my new range of baby sewing patterns, Poppy & Jazz. Named after my dog Poppy and my baby daughter Jasmine, Poppy & Jazz is a range of patterns for babies from 0-3 to 24 months.
After spending the last year making clothes for Jasmine it felt right to launch a mini pattern range. Let me talk you through them…
This is the Daisy Dress. With a nod to my favourite era, the 1950s, this little cotton party dress has a peter pan collar, cap sleeves and a gathered skirt. Jasmine wore this dress at her first birthday party so it is tried and tested!
You can opt for a contrasting collar and bodice or keep it all in one fabric.
In this photo Jazz is wearing both the Strawberry Sweatshirt and Tangerine Trousers. These are the simplest makes in the pattern range and would be perfect for a beginner sewist. They are Jasmine’s everyday staples, sweet yet practical.
The Tangerine Trousers (named after Poppy’s favourite snack – random I know!) can be made with or without feet depending on whether they are walking. They have a soft wide waistband to keep them super comfy around their tummies.
The Strawberry Sweatshirt (named after Jasmine’s favourite fruit), has a wide enough neckline so you don’t need to add poppers. It can be made out of a lovely soft french terry or a roma ponte. And it lends itself to all sorts of customising fun: embroidery, applique, stenciling and more!
This is the Honeydew Hoodie. (See what we have done here with alliteration?!) I love how ‘Chanel’ this version looks. It wasn’t intentional! Like the dungarees this little hoodie jacket is reversible, so it is stain friendly and also gives you the option of doing one side plain and one side patterned! It fastens with 6 poppers at the front.
Jasmine is pulling her best blue steel look here! Love that stare 🙂 These are the Dandelion Dungarees and the best thing about them is they are reversible! I know all too well about how things get stained so quickly these days so you can get double the wear out of them. Plus you get to enjoy choosing two fabrics instead of one! They fasten with poppers and you can keep the straps a bit longer and add a second set of poppers to make them adjustable as they grow.
I can’t wait to see all your makes. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #poppyandjazz when sharing and follow @poppyandjazz on instagram!
