In a galaxy far, far away

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Well, at least it feels like Summer was a LONG time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It was all long sleeve dresses and layered hoodies around here when the weather shifted gears faster than the Millennium Falcon in hyper-drive. I quickly found myself searching for a new pattern suitable for Mother Nature’s mood swing and my Round 12 Galaxy Coordinate strike off.

and then I found it...

Hello, Sunshine Suit from Max&Meena!


The  Sunshine Suit features a ton of options that are all jam-packed into one pattern. Do you see this mock-up of the available options? How does one even choose which variation to make? It certainly wasn't an easy choice, but for this strike off, I eventually decided on the crossover hooded tank (with pocket!) and the elastic-waist bummie shorts. 

I had about a fat half of fabric to work with, so a coordinating fabric was a must for this size 5T set. What better choice than one of my FAVORITE color ways of the Splatter Stripe collection -- Crafty Splatter Stripe. 

Do you love Crafty Splatter Stripe, too? Of course you do! Luckily the ENTIRE Splatter Stripe Collection is rerunning next month with Fabric Anthropology's Round 13. You can check out the preorder photo album here. 

I used all Cotton Lycra for this set, but don't forget that Fabric Anthropology's Round 12 offers Bamboo Lycra, Brushed Poly, and SWIM (among other bases!!). All of the bases mentioned here can be used when making your own version of the Sunshine Suit. 

This pattern is beginner friendly, the tutorial is easy to read and the sizing is on-par with most ready-to-wear (RTW) items. My girls wear 2T and 5T in store bought and they wear a 2T and 5T in Max&Meena Patterns. 

Not only is this adorable new pattern available now and on sale through Wednesday, May 16 (no coupon code needed!), but FA's Round 12 is officially OPEN! It's like a match made in galaxies.... far, far away ;)

I’m dying to try the Sunshine Suit!
How about a blog post about pattern mashing?!?

I love the way you paired the fabrics to make the perfect sunshine. I would like to see blogs on children’s swimwear, gathering, and adding zippers.
