Timmy Top Pattern

Scroll down for english, please!

Em Maio, a Amy do blog Friends Stitched Together e agora Momma Quail Patterns, lançou o seu primeiro molde de roupa, o Timmy Top, e eu fui uma das felizardas que o testaram. Antes de mencionar algo sobre o molde, deixem-me dizer uma coisa a respeito da Amy: ela é uma das minhas designers preferidas para trabalhar. Adorei, mesmo! E nota-se o seu talento. Aprendi novas técnicas aquando do teste, e quando isso acontece, fico mesmo muito feliz. 

Back in May, Amy from Friends Stitched Together and now Mamma Quail Patterns has released her first garment pattern, the Timmy Top. Well, I was one of the lucky testers. Before I mention anything about the pattern, let me mentioned something about Amy: she is one of my favourite designers to work with. I loved it, really! And her talent shows. I learnt knew techniques while testing this and when that happens, it always makes me so happy. 



Quase que passei este test call quando o vi. Devem ter reparado que abrandei bastante. Tenho andado a resistir a todos os calls: testes a moldes, tours, etc. Comecei a sentir-me completamente sobrecarregada e precisei de parar, ou pelo menos abrandar. Ainda me inscrevi para mais uma coisinha ou outra, mas tenho tentado não adicionar mais stress à minha vida. O tempo que dedicava aos meus filhos andava a escassear e isso não podia ser. O tempo a costurar ou online foi reduzido e sinto-me bem melhor. 

I saw this test call and almost passed it. You might have noticed that I've slowed down a bit. I have been resisting all sorts of calls: pattern testings, tours, etc. I was feeling too overwhelmed and needed to step back a little. I still signed for one or two things lately, but I am trying not to add any stress into my life. Spending time with my kids was getting sort of a second plan thing and that, my friends, cannot be. I've been spending less time sewing, less time online, and I feel so much better. 

Lembrem-se que a minha versão é de um teste, e que alguns detalhes como o tamanho dos bolsos, por exemplo, foram melhorados.

Remember my version is a test and some details as the pockets size, for instance, were improved. 

Como estava a dizer, quase que passei o teste. Mas apenas de olhar para o desenho soube que este seria um excelente molde de rapaz ao qual recorrer com frequência, e eu preciso de mais moldes de rapaz (esta foi também a razão pela qual me inscrevi no teste das Morocco Pants de Petit a Petit and Family, por volta da mesma altura - já publiquei sobre o meu segundo par aqui e em breve o farei para o primeiro), porque já sabem, agora também eu tenho o meu menino para quem costurar. Acreditam que é já daqui a duas semanas o 1º aniversário?! Depois o teste começou e fiquei encantada. Como começa no tamanho 2 não o pude fazer para o S. e sim para a mana, e serve perfeitamente para menina também. Mas posso esperar para que ele tenha tamanho para lhe fazer umas a ele também. Adorei todos os detalhes e opções que a Amy incluiu no molde, e também o facto de podermos brincar com as opções e tecidos, criando peças muito diferentes através de um único molde. Aconselho-vos vivamente a espreitarem  o molde e as fotos das outras testers para inspiração. 

As I was saying though, I almost passed this test. But just by looking at the picture, I knew that couldn't be. It looked like a perfect boy, go to pattern, and I need new boy patterns (I signed for the Morocco pants by Petit a Petit and Family around the same time, and for the same reason - I blogged about my second pair here and pretty soon I will be blogging about the first too), because, you know, now I have a little boy of my own to sew for. Can you believe his first birthday is just in a couple weeks?! Then the test has started and I fell in love. It starts at size 2, so I couldn't test it for S. I did test it for the big sister and it works perfectly on a girl too. I can't wait until he's big enough to make some for him. I loved all the details and options that Amy included in the pattern, and also how easy it is to play with fabric and create such different pieces with a single pattern. You should really check the pattern and tester photos for some inspiration.

  1. Love how you've done the pockets, cuffs and yoke in patterned fabric, Magda. It's a bonus when you can use a pattern for both boys and girls. Looks like a great pattern.

    1. Obrigado. Tentei encontrar algo no meu stash que desse tanto para menino como para menina, porque afinal, o teste foi feito nela, mas com a ideia de passar a camisa para o S. daqui a algum tempo. =D Acho que consegui.
