Dress for Comfort and Style with the P4P Runabout Romper!

It's still a release week over at Patterns for Pirates and I'm sharing another version of the Runabout Romper that I created during testing.  You can see the shorts/tank romper that I shared earlier on this post.  This time around, I'm showcasing the super comfy,...

Summer Ready with the Runabout Romper by P4P

I've never thought of myself as a romper girl.  Something about a top-to-bottom outfit that isn't a dress just messes with my head and I'm not always ready for it.  The thing is...testing new patterns always pushes me outside of my typical style choice and comfort...

May the 4th Be With You, 2020

Next to Halloween, today is my favorite holiday ever.  May the 4th Be With You, my friends.  Every year, I look forward to making new themed outfits for the three of us to wear. But let's be honest with ourselves...I make Star Wars clothing year round.  It's just that...

We Can Sew It! :: FREE Silhouette + Cricut Cut Files!

It's no secret right now that there is a massive shortage of PPE in every hospital and care facility everywhere.  It's also well known that the CDC is now calling for everyday people to wear masks when they go into public -- to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in...

Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends!  By all means, this is the most interesting version of a holiday that the world is going through right now, but it doesn't mean that we can't celebrate a little bit.  And wear green while we're doing it, of course!  It's such a scary...

A Brushed (P4P Oversized) Sweater is Even Better!

A Brushed (P4P Oversized) Sweater is Even Better!

The Oversized Sweater is taking the P4P sewists by storm and I'm for sure part of the hype.  The pattern lives up to it's name, with the incredibly roomy silhouette, but it also is incredibly roomy for how  many different versions you can make out of one...

Oversized: Waffle Knits + P4P’s New Sweater Pattern

Today, I am going to be talking with you about waffle knits and the oversized trend.  And how it's maybe kinda sorta growing on me but I'm just not quite there yet.  Even though I want to be because everyone looks so stinking cute in their oversized clothes...

Leopard is a Neutral, but this Sporty Piko is Not Even Close

I would never forgive myself if I didn't share this version of the Sporty Piko with you.  Much like this version, I sewed it up during testing and then let the pictures go to waste on my computer.  Whomp whomp.  But guess what 2019 Katy?  2020 Katy is here and she's...

Sporty Piko by Patterns for Pirates

I told you that I was on a kick of sharing projects from last year that never made it to the blog, right?  Here's another instance of that -- because we released the Sporty Piko from Patterns for Pirates back in April of last year and I somehow didn't brag about this...

Joggers + Leggings = Loggers

Joggers + Leggings = Loggers

I cannot believe that I haven't shared these pants yet, especially considering that I get all heart eyed when I think of them! Forever ago, we released a pattern at Patterns for Pirates that is basically the pant that the sewing world has been waiting for.  It wears...

Twist Back Top by Patterns for Pirates

It's a P4P Release Day, y'all!!!!  Wooooo!!!! I've been a bad kid for a while now and haven't participated in a full test.  I've been SO bogged down and overwhelmed by work and it's just been taking away from my fun sewing time.  BUT, I didn't want to miss out on this...
