Well Hilo There!

Well Hilo There!

Today's blog is going to feature two amazing patterns that were recently released! The Women's and Girls' Hilo Tunic and Dresses from Max & Meena Patterns! You can grab your women's copy here and your girls version here. Both are on sale through Friday 9/21 with no code needed! After that sale ends, we'll provide you with a coupon code over in Fabric Apothecary and Jr Sewist Sewalongs, where we're sewing these patterns up SAL style (or maybe you'll catch it at the end of this post!!)

Let me tell you.. these patterns are MUST HAVES for Fall. They're so quick to sew up and the outcome is gorgeous. Have you been hoarding all of your awesome FA fabric for the perfect pattern? Well, these are it! 

The amazing Amanda Cervantes made one of each, and she even HACKED the women's version into a vest! Isn't it gorgeous? This vest is stunning, too. I can't wait to see how she did it -- can you? Check out the videos below!

Without further delay, here is Amanda's video on how she hacked the Women's Hilo into a VEST! 

And here is the video of Amanda sewing her absolutely gorgeous FULLY-LINED hacked Hilo Vest:

How amazing is she for doing this for us?! Leave Amanda some love in the comments and I'll choose someone to win the Women's pattern for free! 

So.. hacking a vest not for you?! That's okay!! We love super fun and easy hacks, but this pattern is so fantastic all on it's own and Jamie from M&M released these gorgeous patterns for us just in time for fall! I've made a few of them already. I think my favorite part is that I can pair them with my leggings for a super cozy look and my daughter LOVES the crossover hood. Check out the ones I made without any alterations or hacks:


The Hi-Low angle gives this simple pattern some serious character! This one was made from gorgeous Fabric Anthropology Danyellow Splatter Stripes in Brushed Poly! She loves how soft it is.


I haven't had a chance to sew one up with my glorious FA fabric yet -- but you can bet I will be! I just received my stunning Rise Up order and there are two yards of Cotton Lycra French Terry Sploshion Stripes that are begging to be a Max and Meena Hilo Tunic! I'll definitely share once its finished!

We hope you love this pattern as much as we do and that you found Amanda's Vest Hack to be helpful and informative. Don't forget to grab your patterns while they're on sale through Friday 9/21!
