If you don't already know about Flip This Pattern, here's the skinny: an indie children's pattern is featured each month.  3-4 guest bloggers will take the pattern and have fun with it (aka "flip" it).  For those of you at home, you can sew-along too, with prizes to boot. There are still 6 months left in this unique series and it's a great way to get find out about all the truly remarkable indie pattern companies out there. 

Guest Bloggers

Be sure to check out Frances Suzanne throughout the month of January to see the re-designs of our Chickadee Blouse & Skirt pattern that all you creative types come up with.  Here is the line up of talented guest bloggers-competitors who have already been hard at work planning something exciting to show you in January:

Today I am so excited to be sharing a Chickadee Blouse sewn by my friend, Tara, for her not-quite-2 year old, Miss E.  [Miss E was last spotted on our blog snuggling up to her new quilt].

Tara made a size 2T with added length to the hem so Miss E can grow into it.  She also lengthened the sleeves by an inch, which was helpful in giving the sleeves some "poof" with the gathered elastic cuff.  The fabric is Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy 'Posie' in quilting cotton. So sweet, don't you agree?
