#111 Pattern of the Week

Our pattern of the week is Boy's Heirloom Bubble #111! The pattern includes sizes 3 - 24 month and features tiny tucks down the front. You may choose from three different collars that may be trimmed with heirloom lace or simple piping. This blue and ecru silk bubble was featured in Sew Beautiful issue #110 and was inspired by a vintage outfit. The pattern for this original collar and sleeve band are in the magazine.

A simple and stylish version, this bubble is made from dusty blue pima cotton, purchased trim, and antique buttons.

This bubble makes me think of baby dedications and portraits! The white heirloom lace and pale blue lawn fabric makes it a very dressy outfit.

The pattern includes clear instructions for applying the heirloom laces to the collars.

Made from white linen and ecru lace, I will be teaching construction for this bubble at Martha Pullen School of Art and Fashion in July.

White linen and Shadow Embroidery gives this outfit a more casual look.

The collar is trimmed with white and yellow Whipped Stitched Piping. Shadow Embroidery instructions and similar designs can be found in the Heirloom Embroidery Book.

On a personal note...I am feeling better everyday and am hoping that I will be able to get back to sewing this week! My husband has been wonderful about doing housework and taking care of errands and meals. He has also stated that once I am back to normal that he plans on forgetting everything that he has learned. :)

So glad you are feeling better. I hadn't checked the blog in a long time and didn't realize you had surgery. Best wishes for a speedy recovery...and take time to take care of yourself and enjoy letting other people take care of you!
