Flip This Pattern: Free for All

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Ashley and Emily always seem to have something new up their sleeve with each "season" of Flip This Pattern. Their February season does not disappoint! 


This month's challenge is to create something using a free pattern or tutorial. What better way to collect inspiration and resources for all the free stuff out there?!? Who doesn't like free?!?


I chose to sew up the Modkid Sunny Days Tank. I hope you weren't thinking the Sunny Days Tank was only for WARM, sunny days! The tank works perfectly layered for cool, sunny days.


I only made a couple of simple "flips" to the free pattern. I lengthened the tank to more of a dress length. Then, I added the pockets from the Modkid Bridget pattern. 


I can't rave enough over the new Patty Young Vivid knits for Riley Blake. They will be available soon, so be on the lookout! The Marigold Leilani is such a great yellow I would venture to say anyone could wear it. And that's somewhat hard for a yellow! Hopefully you can tell from the nice lettuce hem, that the stretch and recovery in this knit is superb.


Be sure to check out all of the FREE patterns on the tour! Because, as we already stated, who doesn't love free?!?

  1. Cute! The tank top pattern makes an adorable dress. It looks great layered on top of a long sleeve shirt.:)

  2. She is so stinking cute!!!! Thanks for the knit reference as well.....we are TRYING to embrace sewing with knits a bit more, and it is so hard to find cute prints!! That, and our niece has asked for a yellow dress - and yellow just "isn't her color" so our sister said, "BE CREATIVE!" {this might be the ticket :)}.

    1. Yes! Your nieces seem like they have similar coloring to Tandy. Marigold might be just the thing!
