Reef Maker Round Up

Maker Round up Title Card - Tino's Reef

We asked some wonderful makers in the sewing community to come on board to sew their own take on the Reef pattern, and we are so excited to share their makes with you! We love this part of a pattern release as it gives us a chance to share with you all how you could use the Reef and Reef Curve patterns!

We’ve been absolutely blown away (not surprisingly of course, because these makers rock!) by the makes we’ve seen! These Reef sets are seriously the cutest, let’s take a look!

Carole's Reef Make Carole's Reef Make View A & B Carole's Reef Make View A

WHO // Carole from @carolerankin.

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View B shorts with curved hem.

You know how we feel about linen and the gorgeous cream linen Carole has used really makes this set such a chic pyjama set, comfy and stylish all in one!

Aaronica Reef Curve set Aaronica Reef Curve set Aaronica Reef Curve set

WHO // Aaronica from @needleandthebelle.

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View C shorts with straight hem.

We’re suckers for a good print and Aaronica has just knocked it out the park with this gorgeous fabric for her chic Reef set! Lounging around the house is something to look forward to with PJ’s like this!

Keira's Reef Make View B Keira's Reef Make View B Keira's Reef Make View BWHO // Keira from @islandsewcialist. Be sure to check out her blog as well, Island Sewcialist!

WHAT SHE MADE // View B curved hem shorts! Keira used the Curve size 14 as the crotch curve was perfect for her shape. She lowered the rise 1.5″ throughout, lowered the front rise an additional 0.5″ and shortened the inseam by 1″.

You know how we were saying you can wear your Reef pieces casually as well? This is the perfect example! The alternating pattern direction on the hem and waistband pieces is such a lovely detail!

Mary Reef Curve two toned set Mary Reef Curve two toned set Mary Reef Curve two toned set

WHO // Mary from @sablecraft

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View B shorts with curved hem.

When Mary told us she was using black AND natural linen for her make, we were so excited to see what it would look like. We’re blown away! Her stunning two-toned set is giving us ideas on how to make Reef into a faux romper!

Lorraine's Reef Make View A & B

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View C shorts with a straight hem.

Our obsession with gingham continues, and we are so in love with Lorraine’s matching gingham Reef set! The camisole and shorts could very easily be worn with casual pieces for day, not to mention as a cute pyjama set for bedtime.

Delia's Reef Make View A & B Delia's Reef Make View A & B Delia's Reef Make View A & B Delia's Reef Make View A & BWHO // Delia from @slow.sew_

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View B shorts with curved hem.

We love it when you tweak our patterns and put your own spin on them! This Reef cami tweak by Delia is subtle yet lovely. This simple hack has more of a shirt hem look with both the front and back of the cami including a convex hemline. We love it!

Tino's Reef Make View A & B Tino's Reef Make View A & B Tino's Reef Make View A & B

WHO // Tino from @sewstartino. Be sure to check out her blog, Sew Star Tino!

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View B shorts with curved hem.

Not only does Tino has amazing taste in print and colour but she just exudes joy in all she does. Her fabric choice for her Reef set is just divine, what an incredible choice!

Amy's Reef Make View A & B Amy's Reef Make View A & BAmy's Reef Make View A & B Amy's Reef Make View A & BWHO // Amy from @amyzecheann

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole with View B shorts with curved hem.

Do our makers have the BEST choice in fabric or what? How incredible are these colours?! We are loving the bold print on Amy’s pyjama set, and the camisole/shorts would look beautiful as separate casual items as well.

Alene's Reef Make View A & B Alene's Reef Make View A & B Alene's Reef Make View A & B Alene's Reef Make View A & B

WHO // Alene from @alenesews

WHAT SHE MADE // View A camisole (hacked with a crossover, split-back piece) & View B shorts with curved hem.

Is anyone else making furious notes to hack their next Reef camisole into the split crossover back that Alene has created? It’s such a beautiful mix up to the pattern, so unique and ties in so beautifully to the other curves on the shorts!
