Corduroy Pants and Lily Bird Studio Discount Code

This is my first time sewing a Lily Bird Studio pattern.  These are the Ben and Mia pants.  They're great for boys or girls.  She also provides directions for 3 different versions of the pants. 

There are so many things to like about this pattern but my favorite is the piping and the lined pockets. 

Look!  I even have the pockets perfectly aligned with the fabric.  Yay!  
I was so excited about the pants, I didn't pay attention to the wrinkly shirt. 

I love the fit and I just bought some fabric to make more.  My next pair is going to include the tabs on the waist with the button embellishments.  If you're interested in making these cute pants, you can save 20% off by using this code:  LBSBENMIA
Thanks Cecelia for a great pattern and the special discount.

Peasant Dress

Aqua is one on my new favorite colors. 
I think my daughter looks so cute in her new dress. 

I added ric rac and flower embellsihments to jazz it up. 

I love how they included directions for adding the lace.  
It gives the peasant style dress a new look. 
They have so many adorable patterns that are perfect for girly girls.

Basic Knit Leggings

My local fabric store doesn't have a large selection of knit fabrics.  I found some that I really liked at fabric.com and I used this pattern to make a pair of leggings.  It doesn't get any easier.  I made these in less time than it would have taken me to go to the store, pick out a pair, and get back home. 

Now, I always have my eyes open for cute knit prints. Please share if you know of any other great fabric sources.
