Friday Feature: Maize summer mash-up with Petite Stitchery & Co.

Ahhh! Summer is in full swing and you would think my daughters wardrobe is filled… NOPE! She needs #allthedresses. Lol So what better way to fill up her closet with some Petite Stitchery & Co (PSco) favorites! So today’s Friday Feature from PSco is Maize!  I will share with you some hacks I made to make Maize the PERFECT summer pattern.

 

If you’re now heading into cooler months remember that PSco Patterns are a great way to “make it your own”.  Keep it warm by adding the Sapphire Layering Top  or Fawn Leggings!

This is a modified Maize, I used the bodice from Ruby Romper to achieve this look.

Maize is part of the Fall Collection but don’t let that fool you.  PSco designs are so easy to modify to fit your needs… your imagination can run wild! That is what makes Petite Stitchery so fun and unique. You can find the full Fall Collection, HERE.

IMG_3842.JPGI made 2 versions. I wanted a classic willowy boho look and I wanted a more urban look. My first Maize mod I did was Maize and Clover. I used the Maize bodice and wanted it to be sleeveless since its warming up.  I did the “burrito roll” method to keep my seams hidden. IMG_3855.JPG

I then used the Clover skirt for the bottom. I used the tunic cut line but added length to the top to give it dress length. Be sure when you do this you make sure the front and back skirt piece curve line up evenly! Simply overlap and make sure that the correct length has been added so you don’t get one piece longer than the other.

I love the finished look. I paired with a belt I found in the kids’ toy box and some gladiator sandals and it really completed my boho look. The fabric I used is from Joann Fabrics. Its part of the Quilters Cotton selection. Make sure if you have a Joann’s nearby you take advantage of their 4th of July Sale! IMG_3837.JPG

My second look I used Maize and Ruby Romper. I wanted a more edgy, urban look… something that was ultra trendy. These 2 mashed together gave me the exact look I was looking for. I should note I used the curved skirt piece. IMG_4018

This Mash-up was simply taking a bodice from one a skirt from the other and mashing them together. If you are making the baby size, you can find the Maize & Ruby Bundle, HERE.  The end look is simply chic and so urban. I must say though, AHHH! I have been hoarding this Sage fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics for sometime now. But Sage was screaming to be made into a Mash-Up, lol IMG_3999.JPG
