Hi there! It’s Heather here. I’m going to be sharing some tutorials here on Design Diary every once in awhile. I’ve really loved sewing all of Megan Nielsen’s girls’ patterns. They are so fun and cute and basic which fits right into my style! My daughter is 2.5 years old and just barely fitting into the smallest size. She is very petite for her age, and I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting to sew her clothes from all of the girls’ patterns!
The first item of clothing I made is a sleeveless Mini Briar with simple sleeve bands. I used a stretchy rayon spandex for the body so the fit is very loose. This is a tutorial for sewing regular knit bands and not the special knit binding version that Megan Nielson is famous for.
