Meet Lily and Emmy

Fab For You Patterns has released two new patterns: The Lily Sweater and the Emmy Skirt, and they make a great pair! I have tested both patterns and made two sets for Miss SieBe.

For the Lily Sweater of the first set, I used a red French Terry and black ribbing. This one is sweater length, and has balloon sleeves, which Miss SieBe likes a lot. They are comfortable, she says. A nice detail of this pattern is the waistband at the back. On the front, I added a heart with my Easy Print Screen kit from Bobbinhood. For the skirt I used a woven fabric. The two layers are characteristic for the Emmy skirt, although it is also possible to make only the shorter or the longer layer.

For the second set I chose partly the same, partly different options. Again the skirt has two layers, but this time, I chose the paperbag waistband for an even more festive look. Another option for the skirt, which I didn’t make, is a sash. I made the skirt out of plissĂ© (pleated) fabric. The Lily Sweater is made out of a navy French Terry. For the bands I used the same fabric. This is crop length, and it has balloon sleeves. Other sleeve options are regular long sleeves and short sleeves.

In the waistband of the sweater I added a ribbon as an extra embellishment. I wrote a short tutorial on how to do this, which will be published on the blog of Fab For You soon. So stay tuned!

The Lily and Emmy come in a large size range of NB – 14 y, though it is also possible to buy only half of it (NB-7y; 7y-14y). Included in the patterns are two projector files, one with different colors for each size and one with all sizes in black. The projector file has full pattern pieces with a fold line in the middle, so you can choose whether to cut them on fold or not. I like that! Find the patterns here.
