I agree with seperate with the option of a bulk discount.

I would say individual $x and e-book $y or do a 2/3/4 for $z does that make sense?

Will have to ask DH if I can do bulk purchases like that, not sure the website will play nicely with that, but yeah sounds like a good idea (once I get more patterns, at the moment there aren't enough to make a bundle with :smt044 )

Have FINALLY finished the gown, only 3 sizes - up to 72cm, and has the fold over cuffs etc, needs the width at the bottom checked - I've made it quite narrow as that's my personal preference but others might not like it that way....

Anyone who's already testing the Top want to try the gown (it's an addition again not a stand alone pattern)

92cm Hoodie in polar fleece. L is a little taller than 92cm, so would be better with next size up. I love the fit and the fact it covers his chest with no zips, buttons, toggles.

Zafi in an 80cm sleevless dress with 80cm hoodie underneath, both from merino. I'm not as keen on the hoodie in the lighter fabric. The hood seems to make the crossover turn out. She's between a 72cm and 80cm size. Hoodie is 80cm body, 72cm sleeves. The dress is 80cm body, 72cm length.

Ignore the bulge in the bodice on the photos, I hadn't pulled it down properly and she is standing funny. Would have retaken photos but stupid batteries are flat and she is sick, so I won't push my luck with trying to get full co-operation :wink:

Thanks! What cuties your kids are :mrgreen:
I think the hoodie is only suitable as a heavier weight, less stretch over garment, adding length to the neckline of the hood seems to have made it slightly gapey, but the alternative is having the hood pulling at the back of the body which really annoys me.... maybe it just needs a snap or button to make it sit? Not sure if I should mess with the pattern further, or leave it as is... (would 100% help if L would cooperate and wear any of my testers so I can see the difference up close and fiddle with tucks and pins and stuff....... :twitch: :smt005 )

I'd leave the pattern as it is and state that the hoodie is for heavier weight fabric only. I would totally put an older boy in the hoodie style, now that I've made it up.

I think the dress pattern is too long though so it would need taking up, especially for girls whoa re still crawling, shorter is better :D

I measured the dress length on L and it comes to her knee exactly, so I guess I need to aim above the knee? I can sort of see knee length summer fabric style at knee length but shorter for winter? Maybe I should do two lengths? I agree short for crawling babies is best (I just avoided dresses at that age and put a ruffle on the bottom of sweatshirts)

For the smaller sizes of dress, I would be tempted to make it a little more flared and use a stretch rolled hem to make it look ruffled. Probably only slightly longer than below the bum or tunic length :lol: You could also put a couple of applique templates on the spare paper for the dress as well :wink:

I would also consider putting pockets on the hoodie too. Especially for the boys since they like to put things in pockets.

I nearly put a big kangaroo pocket on the front of Olivia's hoodie, I have a knit fabric with butterflies on it that would have set the colours off nicely.

I prefer longer dresses, the crawling stage is generally short and K has a long torso so it is hard to find dresses that are warm enough on her in winter, stockings aren't warm enough when the dress barely covers her bottom so I have to put her in trousers under her dresses

Miss Z is fast alseep so I will try it on her later, my feeling is it will be big on her makes sense she is bang on inbetween sizes so I will make a smaller one too. I will do her body measurements when she gets up also.
Not many issues only with the sleeve drafting as you may be able to see the short side does not have a finished edge as the end of thet side is where the fold is for the mittens so the shorter sleeve needs to be a hem allowance longer - make sense? I do like this style as it gets colder I love having her hands covered. Will make it in merino when I sort sizing. Nice and easy to sew and I love this neckline - idiot proof for Dad too (we have a cross over pair of jammies that are not fully joined at the cross only on the sides and Dad just can't cope with those ones :rotfl: it is quite entertaining and she ends up with her head inbetween the cross overs).

Thanks Darny

Um no? Did you hem the sleeves before putting them together?- not sure if I wrote that in my quick instructions but they 'should' be ok if done that way? (If I'm wrong can you explain so I can fix it, VERY tried and not with it today sorry... kids not sleeping at night and I'm in zombie mode)
