Back To School with Sis Boom


I'm absolutely loving back to school sewing, so today, we're kicking off Sis Boom's, At School & Play Blog Tour.


One of our favorite patterns from Sis Boom is their Tobago Tank and until SEPT 4th ALL patterns are 40% off with the code: BACK2SCHOOL, so make sure you stop at the shop and grab some along with the Tobago tank. ;)
We've had some fun hacking the Tobago before, and this time I thought we could do another small hack, by making it in my kids favorite type of fabric: KNIT!


I didn't change the pattern pieces at all and cut it out of Raspberry Creeks Club Knit Floral instead of woven fabric, then I added neck and arm bands. The only other small change was adding 4 little belt loops so I could put a belt around Aevs waist. Super small and easy adjustment, but it turns it into a whole new dress!



Aevs has been soo excited to get a dress out of this floral since we bought it and I felt today she deserved a special treat since those pins in her arm are coming out and a new cast will be put on for a few more weeks. Poor girl. I broke my arm 3 times as a kid, but I think she's spent more time in a cast than I did!


So now that you've read all about my small hack, we're onto the giveaway!!!

Leave a comment telling me what color cast you think miss Aevs will pick today for your chance to win the Tobago pattern for yourself! Giveaway will end Sept 2nd at the end of the tour!

Don't forget to check out the other bloggers looks this week.  
We are excited to announce that our bloggers EACH have a pattern giveaway on their posts! Everyday something new, so be sure to follow along with this tour!

  4. I love that dress on her, my little would want that the second I show it to her. I'd better make her one before I show her �� if she were my girl.she'd go for pink or purple.

  7. Love the idea of the belt loops. Hot pink for my grand girl, so that's my guess for Aevs too.
