    The "Blouson Bomber Jacket" for Girls & Boys: Photo Round Up & Giveaway (Day 3)


    Hi there! This is the 3rd and final day of our "Blouson Bomber Jacket" Photo Round Up and also your final chance to enter the pattern Giveaway (scroll down for entry form).

    The awesome Tanya @sewvolution made two jackets for her sweet girl which are equally fabulous. One in denim with a hearts print fabric peeping out of the pockets (and heart snaps at the front!) and the other in a gorgeous, girly floral.  I believe they've gotten a lot of wear (always love to hear that).

    Maggie Jaded Threads made one for her little boy (how cute is he??) in a stretch fabric.  There's a little surprise for "Moana" fans on the jacket. If you look closely at the print you can see lyrics from all the songs.

    Carlie @thefabricmamma made jackets for her girls in mermaid and unicorn print fabric which they suggested she buy on a joint shopping trip. They have great taste and their mum is a fantastic sewer so it was a win win :)

    Thanks to all the amazing ladies who were featured in our blog series and thanks to everyone who followed along! The Giveaway will be drawn on 13 September and you can enter below:

    The "Blouson Bomber Jacket" for Girls & Boys: Photo Round Up & Giveaway (Day 2)


    Welcome to Day 2 of the Peach Patterns "Blouson Bomber Jacket" Photo Round Up & Giveaway. (Check out Day 1 of the Round Up here).  

    I have lots more great jackets to show you today including the one below by Karen @poshbotscreations / Karen G - Pieces of Me. Karen made the jacket for her daughter in a stretch cotton sateen with a beautiful flowers and birds print on a pink background. The pocket backs and facings are in a solid navy which coordinates nicely with the print.

    N.B. If you're in Australia, Spotlight has a range of both printed and solid cotton sateen permanently in stock (not an affiliate link).  This type of fabric is a great choice for the design as it's a nice mid-weight and with just that bit of stretch, the jacket is both easy to sew and really comfortable to wear.

    The next jacket was made by Saskia @shewhosewsuk / She Who Sews and is a great example of how this design works equally well for boys.  Saskia put a lot of effort into finishing and photographing the jacket.  You can see the lovely details in the close-up photo of the pocket and also the one which gives a peek inside the jacket.  Am in total admiration of those bias bound seams! Saskia was also kind enough to put together this great blog post where she explains more about making the pattern for her young man.

    Last but not least is the gorgeous jacket made by Livia @livia.jy for her lovely daughter who is always keen to model her mama-made outfits with a great big smile on her face! The quilted cotton is another great fabric choice for the jacket and what's not to love about this pretty floral?

    Grab a copy of the pattern here or be sure to get your entry in to the giveaway and be in the running to win one of 6 copies of the pattern (the winners will be randomly drawn on 13 September). If you're not already in the Peach Patterns Sewing Group join up now to boost your chances or if you're already a member just leave a comment on the blog. Stay tuned for our final post of the series coming soon.

    The "Blouson Bomber Jacket" for Girls & Boys: Photo Round Up & Giveaway (Day 1)


    If you're like me, your childrens' handmade wardrobes contain LOTS of dresses, some skirts, tops and maybe a couple of pairs of pants and shorts thrown into the mix.  But a jacket?  Perhaps not.  Enter the "Blouson Bomber Jacket", a unisex pattern which makes creating a handmade jacket totally achievable! It's easy to sew and quick to come together. It has cute circular side pockets which are a cinch to insert and the jacket can be dressy or casual depending on your fabric choice. Best of all, you can make one in either woven or stretch fabric to match or coordinate with your other gorgeous handmade pieces. 

    Thanks so much to all of you who have already supported Peach Patterns by visiting our new website and purchasing the pattern.  Don't have it yet? You can get one here OR, better still, scroll down to enter the "Blouson Bomber Jacket" Giveaway where 6 copies of the pattern will be given away at the end of our 3 day blog series.

    A huge thank you is also due to the promotional sewing team who were so enthusiastic about this project and so generous with their time. Today (and over my next 2 blog posts) I wanted to introduce you to some of them and to showcase their gorgeous jackets and photos.

    First up (and also in the feature photo above) we have Genevieve @gegiegrossmann. Genevieve's stylish girl is the lucky recipient of many a mama-made outfit and she always looks amazing in what she wears.  The gorgeous floral fabric is a scuba and so has a moderate stretch (a great choice for this design).

    Next we have a jacket made by Lottie for her boy (who has the sweetest blonde curls).  Lottie has tested a couple of my girls dress patterns and it was so great that she was able to make something for her little man as well.  The jacket is superbly finished and I love the way it brings his outfit together.....

    Our third and final jacket for today was sewn by Amanda @kapera.handmade who has also been a fabulous Peach Patterns tester over the past year.  Amanda has such a great sense of style and always adds unique touches to the things she sews.  I have to admit when she gave us a sneak peek of the fabric she wanted to use for this one I assumed she would be using the floral for the main fabric and the solid for the pocket but she surprised me by doing it the other way around and I have to say I LOVE the result.

    Enter our giveaway below and on next Wednesday 13 September I'll randomly select 6 winners who will each get a copy of the "Blouson Bomber Jacket" Pattern. Join the Peach Patterns Sewing Group on Facebook or simply leave a comment on this post (as well as entering your details in Rafflecopter) to enter!
