This Giveaway is now closed - feel free to share your comments with us though...we love to read them :)
Remember back in April when I asked for your feedback about releasing Make It Perfect kids patterns in bigger sizes? It seems that the need is out there - I had heaps of comments and emails asking for lots of my patterns to be released in bigger sizes...you spoke and I listened :)
And then when I got an email from my friend and pattern tester, Karen a few weeks ago asking me if I was going to up-size Uptown Girl for this winter because she wanted to sew jackets for her older girls, the pressure was on ;) It was just the motivation I needed to get my act together and do some re-drafting and pattern writing.
So, without further ado...due to popular demand, the Uptown Girl jacket you love is now available in larger sizes!!!
I've tried to keep things as clear as possible and am hoping there won't be any hiccups along the way...this is how the new sizing will work:
The old/original Uptown Girl pattern remains the same, but will now be called LITTLE Uptown Girl - including sizes 6 months - 5 years.
The new pattern, BIG Uptown Girl is EXACTLY the same jacket design, only the size range is 6 years - 10 years.
Little Uptown Girl and Big Uptown Girl are two separate patterns, both featuring the exact same design, for two different size brackets. To avoid confusion about the pattern design, I have decided to keep the same cover picture for both patterns. Got it?!
So, you mothers, grandmothers, aunties and friends with older girls to sew for can get cracking on new winter jacket sewing!
And, yes, I do plan on up-sizing other kids patterns in my range from time to time...if you have any specific requests, please send them my way as I am more likely to up-size a pattern if I get a decent amount of people asking for it.
You can find out fabric requirements for Big Uptown Girl on the website. If you have a store and want to stock this or any other Make It Perfect patterns, contact Creative Abundance to place an order.
If you would like to purchase a copy of Big Uptown Girl for yourself, they should be popping up in retail stores very soon. Ask your favourite store to get one in for you!
