Girls’ Summer Basics by Thread Faction

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!  And our winner is…Diarodenaii!  Thanks for playing along, everyone!


Hi guys! I’m excited to be part of Thread Faction’s Spring/Summer 2016 blog tour today! I already own and love one of Liz’s patterns (remember these cozy joggers?) so I was excited to sew up a few of her current patterns for little girls.
Thread Faction SS2016 Blog Tour



Juliet’s look here is made up of tank #104 and skirt #106…and I love them both!  This is my first time putting binding on a tank like this and, while my skills could use some work, I think it sure turned out cute!  And the skirt, with attached shorts underneath is just perfect for active little girls.  I hate having to remind my girls to put on an extra pair of shorts to cover those little bums…with these they don’t have to!  Plus, the tank pattern offers lots of inspiration for colorblocking which is my absolute FAVE design element.




Kira’s wearing dress #108 and it’s so flirty and darling!  In fact I couldn’t decide between making this one, the tank dress (#107) or the romper (#110).   They’re all just perfect for hot summer days.  My girls are pretty minimalistic when it comes to dressing themselves…while they love to prance around in fancy dressups for play, they stick to the same simple outfits when getting dressed in the mornings.  These creations are sure to see lots of wear!  (In fact, one wild little curly-haired munchkin reeeeeally wanted to model this dress instead of letting her sister do it, but she wasn’t being very cooperative and got left behind.  She might never forgive me for it!)

  1. Jill Auxford says:

    I want all of them! I think I’ll start with the tank, or maybe the shorties.

  2. I’d pick #106–practical and comfortable!

  3. Kristie says:

    The dress! We have a couple of weddings this summer, and how cute and easy would that dress be in different wedding colors?

  4. A-ma-zing.

  5. Gorgeous work as always 🙂

  6. So cute you girls! I definitely would choose the skater skot with shorts to sew! Love this pattern!

  7. So cute! I love how you used two different fabrics for the dress. I sewed that one up for the tour too and loved how it turned out.

  8. Chelle Chapman says:

    SEW hard to choose, I DO love the Romper & would probably start there. Thanks for being on this tour, getting LOTS of ideas!!

  9. both outfits are awesome!! Love the way these clothes are perfect for play!!

  10. Judith Martinez says:

    I love the circle skirt!!!

  11. I would love the 107! My daughter is a lot like yours and just wants to throw something on and go!

  12. These are all so cute. Great job! So hard to choose a favorite pattern, but I am itching to make my daughter a romper, so I think I would pick that one.

  13. Lisa Rybka says:


  14. Lovely makes! I’d choose the tank pattern- they’re all great staples though.

  15. Love the idea of a skirt with shorts attached. I think my granddaughters would love them

  16. I think #110, the romper, is really cute but my daughter would look better in #108, the dress,

  17. The more of the blog tour I have read, the more I can’t decide which pattern is my favorite, but I think the skater skort and dolman sleeve dress are my top two favorites.

  18. Bonnie – both are lovely outfits. I love the dress with the black top and red leopard print skirt and binding (it also reminds me of a cute ladybug). I sewed #106 and #108 so far, but I can’t wait to sew the racerback tank. I think I’ll combine that with the shorts I made from #106 for summer pjs, and maybe a tankini.

  19. Tiffany Hering says:

    Love this collection. I love all of the outfits you made!

  20. Woooooo thank youuuuuuu!!!! Gracias!!!
