Matinee Pattern Tour :: Day 7 – Finale

Well, it’s that bittersweet day – the last day of the Matinee pattern tour.  We are most certainly not going out with a fizzle, though – we have three more awesome versions of the pattern today!

Did you know that I am learning the details of the outfits along with you?  I only get to see the teaser photos I share with you and maybe a short description of the garment before I click through after the posts go live.  It’s a fun adventure each morning to go see what was made!


The Crazy Tailor

For the beginning of the end we have Sarah from The Crazy Tailor.  Remember, she won the most recent season of Project Run & Play amidst some amazing competition?  Check out the cool version Sarah made with the waistline raised all the way to empire height here!


Welcom to the Mouse House

Next up is Hayley from Welcome to the Mouse House.  Hayley and I were already online friends, and became “IRL” friends after rooming together at SNAP! Conference.  You might know her from her designs at Mouse House Creations and Willow & Co., among her other amazing endeavors.  She cut into some coveted AMH voile for her Matinee, and the result is so beautiful!  Read more here.


Needle and Ted

And last but absolutely not least is Olu from Needle and Ted.  Olu has set a challenge for herself to make all of her daughters’ clothes for at least a year.  That’s quite an ambitious and admirable goal!  She transformed her Matinee with a few little changes to make a big impact; read more here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to see all the different variations of the Matinee Dress and Peplum Top pattern our tour participants have brought to you.  I certainly know I have!  It’s like a little present in my inbox when new finishes would come in – what better way to celebrate my birthday week?
