It’s My 1st Blog-o-versary!!–and there’s a GIVEAWAY!!

Hurray! Today marks One Year since I started this blog. It’s been so much fun.

Over the past year I have really enjoyed writing about my sewing projects, sharing tutorials and I even released my first pattern!

I wanted to host a little giveaway to make today special. During the process of developing my pattern, I made LOTS of test pairs of the Cutie Capris. I made all four sizes that the pattern includes, 2T-5T. However, my girls are in the 4T and 5T, and right at the moment we don’t have any little 2T or 3T girls around us. What does that mean?

I have TWO Finished Pairs of Cutie Capris to giveaway!

One is size 2T and one is size 3T. Both look exactly like this photo, they are the pairs that I used for the pattern cover.

PLUS – for extra fun, I’m giving away one copy of the Cutie Capri PDF pattern too!!

To enter the giveaway, be a follower of my blog and leave a comment letting me know which size you would like (either 2T or 3T) for the finished capris. That’s all!! I’ll draw one winner for each size plus one extra for the pattern.

Entry into the giveaway will end on Sunday, July 22nd at 9:00pm CST, USA and the three winners will be announced on Monday, July 23rd.

Thanks for following my blog! I’m looking forward to another fun year!!

Another Spring Favorite from M5793

Whew! I needed a little bloggy break after finishing up my pattern last month. The computer work was intense so I’ve been busy just sewing and sewing and sewing these last couple of weeks. Trouble with that is it leaves no time for photo taking or blogging. So now I’m SUPER behind with posting all the dresses I’ve made lately!
I realized though that I had made a set of dresses for the girls this spring that I had never posted about, and they have been a favorite this year. Here it is, another variation of my all time favorite M5793:

These were made for a special occasion this spring. I made a pleated skirt rather than a gathered skirt and lengthened the tulle underskirt a little bit (a little too much as it turns out, oh well).
I made them matching shrugs, using my easy knit shrug tutorial and added a little ribbon flower embellishment at the neckline – the girls LOVED this detail.

These dresses had BIG bows in the back – my favorite part.

And what’s a new dress without a new hair accessory?

Alas, they have been too busy this spring/summer making “cupcakes” in the mud outside to be modeling dresses and taking photos with me, so I’m lacking photos of them wearing much of what I’ve made them lately, but that’s OK with me. Summer is so short here, we must enjoying it while we can!
Make sure you stop by my pattern shop and check out my first pattern, the Cutie Capris! I have a fun giveaway planned for next week – stay tuned for it!

ANNOUNCING: The Cutie Capris Pattern!


Un Petit Design - Cutie Capris PDF Pattern

Purchase Button

It’s finally here! I am very excited to announce my first multi-size, digital sewing pattern. The Cutie Capris.

The Cutie Capris are a mid-calf length capri pant featuring slash pockets, pleating and an adorable double waistband.

I was inspired by a pair of RTW pants I saw that had a double waistband and I could not get the idea out of my head. The structure and style of a woven waistband with the comfy ease of a knit waistband all in one. LOVE! These waistbands scoop down in the front to give maximum wearing comfort to toddler tummies!

The Cutie Capris PDF Sewing Pattern includes four sizes, comparable to RTW size 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T.

Cutie Capris Description and Information

Instructions Sample

The pattern comes with detailed, step-by-step instructions with full color photographs of every step to make it clear and easy for an Advanced Beginner. I’ve included lots of tips to help you achieve great results throughout the instructions too.

The little details of this pattern add up to make this an adorable little capri – the pleats, the slash pockets and the carefully placed topstitching will leave you with an easy-to-make, yet very professional looking pair of capris!

They have been great for summer days and evenings spent outside, when it’s too warm for jeans or long pants, but something a little more than shorts is needed to protect little legs from the sun and bugs!



I have to say, it was such a fun process to get this pattern to completion and I am very proud of it. I had some great pattern testers that gave me really helpful feedback too, so a big THANK YOU to those of you who tested this pattern for me.

I’ve sewn up more pairs of these capris than I can count now, so I’m glad I love them so much!!






Are you ready to make your own?? Then head on over to my new shop and get your copy!
