Hi Friends. I have been busily engaged in many things, but not many "blog-able." Or maybe I just wasn't creative enough about how to blog, but in any event, I've been living life and falling behind on that list of things I wanted to do here.
But now that a big fundraiser is past, and some big family moves are underway I am catching up! I'm starting with this pattern release, my favorite version of the Game Day Jersey pattern. It's a pattern EXTENSION, actually, which means it's an add-on to the original pattern rather than a stand-alone.
This pattern extension includes pattern pieces and detailed instructions for sewing a straight dress, the Sport Dress, version of the Game Day Jersey. And it also has everything you need to sew the Racing Dress version, which has (no surprise) racing stripes down the side. See this fun gold version I sewed a couple years ago.
As with all my Wee Muses patterns, this one is digitally drafted and includes digital illustrations for all of the step-by-step. It also includes yardage requirements (meters too) and diagrams for taping your print-at-home pattern together to make it really easy.
On another note. Has the kendama craze hit your kids' school yet? Ours peeked when I took these photos, which were a year ago. This is one of those much-harder-than-it-looks games, but a lot of fun and so much better than screen time!
The Game Day Jersey Sport and Racing Dress works well in light to medium weight knits. The tribal pattern knit is from Girl Charlee and is lightweight. This cute pink camo is a terry fleece, which is extra comfy. And the sleeveless version is in one of the gorgeous organic knits from Birch Fabrics.
Hop on over to my Wee Muses Etsy shop to find the original Game Day Jersey pattern and this new pattern EXTENSION: The Game Day Jersey Sport and Racing Dress.
And if your kids need some summer entertainment, or you're looking for a birthday present, why not a kendama? (Totally unrelated to this sewing post, other than it was a fun prop, and I wasn't asked to promote it but I am throwing in this affiliate link.)
