Magnolia Skirt and Hemlock Top - Pattern Testing for Elegance & Elephants

I was honored to be selected as one of the testers for the talented Heidi from Elegance & Elephants . I have been a long time E&E patterns admirer and I have purchased many of her patterns such as the Bohemian Babydoll and Bubble Pocket Top and Shorts, major love!

E&E is coming up with her new fall lines this week, the first in the line is the Magnolia Skirt and Hemlock Top. The skirt is a cute 6 panel swing style skirt which can be made in both woven and knit fabrics.

The Hemlock Top is a knit top that comes with short and long sleeves options with a cute flutter details on the shoulder. I used a heavier knit fabric here that I purchased with making leggings for my girls in mind. I personally recommend a lighter weight knit fabric for the Hemlock Top so that the flutter detail would ruffle nicely.

I made size 7 for my active girl Hanan and the fit of the pattern is spot on. I absolutely love these patterns!

And that Joel Dewberry print I used for the skirt is just amazing! I cut a heart shape and machine appliqued to the shirt for added detail.

Don't forget to grab the fall lines by E&E releasing this week. For a preview of the patterns you can also look at the lookbook that Heidi have prepared here : http://www.eleganceandelephants.com/2014/08/e-e-patterns-fall-lookbook.html

I have another dress from her line that I tested. Will blog about it in my next post, till then, have a wonderful day! :)
