The Willow & Co ASH Jumpsuit

 
I was a LUCKY girl to have been picked to test a brand new pattern from Willow and Co recently and I'm here to give you a sneak peak!  It's called the ASH jumpsuit and can I tell you....it's ADORABLE!  It's created by Celina of Petit a Petit and Family.  She's super talented and was a joy to work with.
I haven't allowed myself to buy anymore woven fabrics until I use up a lot of my stash so this fabric combo is all from my stash and I love how they look all together.  Most of the other testers did all one fabric or two but I used 4.  I was going more toward the Matilda and Jane look since I adore that....  So here's what the pattern options are:

I chose to do separates and did pants (option B) and the top with band at hem (option E).  All the jumpsuits that the other ladies made were incredible and it is next on my list!  Pattern goes up to size 12 which I'm loving as my daughter gets older.
 I love the option to use a contrasting fabric for the elastic casing!
 I wasn't sure I would like the elastic at the bottom of the pants since I've never done that before but I think it really completes the look.  I am so excited for the weather to warm up and my daughter can wear this outfit!!!!
 I'm starting to make matching hair pieces with scraps from my projects.  My daughter was so excited about the hair clip and it is so easy to do.  If anyone is interested I can do a tutorial on making one.  I think it helps tie the outfit together.
 My daughter loved this outfit and we had a very fun photo shoot.  Pattern was so easy to follow.
 This pattern is just one pattern from the Willow and co Spring/Summer 2014 Collection to be released Tuesday, April 22.  The collection is called "Wanderlust: a glamping collection". Do you know what glamping is?  Glam + camping = glamping.  Here's a peak.
 
 
Can't wait for the 22nd to get here!  Pattern testing is so much fun.  You get to "meet" a lot of great women on Facebook and see everyone's creativity and how each person's outfit is so different.  It has pushed me to try a lot of new sewing techniques and my sister said it's like my sewing school and I agree.
 
I will be posting my pattern test of the Mulberry Tunic (for my son!!!) soon and I will be buying the beautiful Fawn Lily Top, Tunic and Dress for sure when the collection comes out.
