A Make It Perfect pattern parade!


I was so happy when Toni asked me to be part of her pattern parade to show off some of the great patterns offered by her pattern company, Make It Perfect. I think that her Shearwater Kaftan was one of the first garments I ever made, way back in 2010! I was still new to sewing then, and clothing seemed way out of my league. I somehow stumbled upon Toni’s patterns and was immediately drawn to her Shearwater Kaftan – in fact, I liked it so much I made my version out of the very same Nani Iro shown on the pattern cover!


I remember exclaiming to anyone who would listen that I had made a shirt, and that it had sleeves! Since then I made several more, so when I was asked to select a pattern for the pattern parade, it was a no-brainer to ask for her mini Shearwater Kaftan which was recently released for kids.


Once again I reached for the Nani Iro and made up not one, but two (actually three! though the last wasn’t completed in time) cute new summery tops for Hazel.


I love that the mini version so closely resembles the ones I’ve made – cute little slit at the neck, side splits and even sleeve tabs (don’t look too closely at mine – while I did manage to get button holes made, I was unable to find my button stash in time!)


I love how they turned out and look forward to seeing Hazel in them this summer!
