The Zee's Tee for Baby E!

I finally get the perfect opportunity to sew for my baby boo. I was part of the testing team for the Zee's Tee, a pattern by Tie Dye Diva, part of the fantastic Bundle Up Boys! pattern offered here.

I had so much fun sewing this t-shirt for baby E. The Zee's Tee comes in so many option - color block, yoke style, pocket style and short or long sleeves. I opted for long sleeves & pocket version. The easiest sew ever! I am now a little more confident sewing with knit fabrics, they are much faster to sew using the trusted serger compared to wovens.

This is the first time him modelling for mummy. It's so funny how he refused to smile and was basically perplexed the whole session as to what is happening lol...

I love my baby boo, need to sew more for him <3 nbsp="">

If you sew for boys, go and grab the Bundle Up Boys deal now! They are offered at great prices and you'd find many beautiful designs from some of the most talented designers. Definitely worth it!

The Diva Collection by Tie Dye Diva!

I was so honored to be given the trust and opportunity to test for the very talented designer at Tie Dye Diva Sewing Patterns, Jen. TDD released two of their designs for the Diva Collection, and I had so much fun testing these patterns.

The first in the collection is the Coral Dress and Top. I tested the Top version in size 7/8 for my lil miss Hanan :) My lil model is a big girl now and  boy it is not easy sewing for bigger girls as they can be so opinionated! But I tried making it easier for both of us by asking her to choose fabrics and gently guiding her on how I think the prints would work together.

As you can see this gorgeous pattern allows you to select up to 5 fabrics to mix and match! Well, I didn't really go by the rule and just had so much fun selecting fabrics and trims for that cute apron!

Little Miss love it so much! I tested this pattern during Ramadhan so with fasting and the heat combined, I did not have the energy to drive to another location for photo. The front of the house would do lol

Closeup. The Coral Dress is very versatile, there are many options available. You can make either top or dress, with or without apron, and choose between 3 sleeves options - ties, flutter or cap. I made the cap sleeves for Hanan. And this dress is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how to shir! Jen gives excellent tips and tutorial on shirring, it is very easy, you'll have fun, I promise!

The back. Love the Coral, it is Hanan's favorite too as she is more of a top and leggings girl than dresses :)

Next in the Diva Collection that I tested is the Sterling Ruffle Leggings. There is also options of ruffle shorties and this pattern is easy, easy, easy! Seriously you could finish making this in 1 hour tops!

I used a pretty floral knit fabric that I hoarded years happy to finally use it! The knit fabric you choose would really make the final look of the leggings. The one I used is so thin and it curls like crazy especially on  the ruffles, but I think it adds character hahah... :P

I also sewed the top to go with the leggings in cute alphabet prints. I used the Bohemian Babydoll pattern by E&E. It's a tad big on her, but oh she will grow into it very quickly.

All is happy and well for the little model, yeay to pattern testing! I highly recommend all TDD patterns, I have bought almost all of them and used them over and over. Hop on over too the TDD pattern shop to view more. You will find that they do offer some items for Sale at reduced price from time to time.

Thank you for reading my friends! Till another sewing post have a beautiful day!
