Story Pattern from Project Lounge Library

Story Pattern sewn and reviewed by Skirt Fixation

The next pattern we sewed from Project Lounge Library is a winner for sure! The Story Pattern is a knit dress with a modern take on the dress that Anne Shirley dreamed of wearing: one with puffed sleeves.  In this house we LOVE Anne of Green Gables, and that just adds to the charm of this pattern!

Special thanks to Kalli June Photography for the beautiful photography of my kids in this post.

For the Project Lounge Library lookbook, we sewed up 3 versions of the Story Pattern.  The first one was for Tinkerbell in our Never Leaving Neverland story.   For this one, we sewed the tunic length.  We included that fun kangaroo pocket.

The sleeves on the Story Pattern are quite the statement piece, and so we had to make an even bigger statement by elongating the cuff length so that the puff part of the sleeves was accentuated!  Talk about a dramatic sleeve statement!

The Story Pattern can be sewn in 11 sizes from 2-12. It has photo illustrations, and is very easy to follow and construct.  There are 2 different ways to sew the neckband, so you can get a great looking neckline every time using your preferred method.  The pattern has layers so you can print just the size(s) you need.

The fabric for this Story Tunic is Twinkle in Marine from the Tundra Fabrics at Hawthorne Supply Co.  We chose organic cotton jersey fabric as the substrate, which makes the snuggliest top ever!  Tina gets tons of extra hugs when she’s wearing this top.

The second version of the Story Pattern we sewed was a top for Tina in our Ode to Eric Carle story.  The fabric for this is an up cycled shirt!  We decided it was MUCH more cost effective to buy a bunch of white clothes and sheets to make this Ode to Eric Carle.

We used the Storyteller graphic design on Tina’s shirt from the Project Lounge Library collection.  It’s the absolute most perfect one for her as she is ALWAYS telling some story or another!  We used some patterned iron on vinyl designed by Natalie Malan.

The final version of the Story Pattern that we sewed was for a cousin in the Ode to Eric Carle story.  The main fabric was an XL t-shirt we up cycled, but do you see those sleeves?  That was from a skirt!!!  (Going right back to our skirt up cycling roots here at Skirt Fixation, thank you very much…)  And statement sleeves need statement fabric, right?  This just might be one of my favorite pieces that we sewed from the collection.
