Time, money and space are all valuable resources so reusing our sewing patterns is a great way to make the most of all of them. Today, I bring a quick post loaded with pics showing multiple ways to use the "$15 Summer Pattern Bundle" that includes the Morrison Top and Dress and Coffeehouse Pant PDF patterns. It's amazing that two simple patterns can turn in to so much!
The Morrison pattern can be made up in both woven and knit fabrics and a top and dress. Here are versions that include an elegant shell, casual t-shirt, knit summer dress, maxi dress and paired with Coffeehouse Pants a faux jumpsuit. You can add a flounce or contrast bands for even more options.
Even more inspo can be found in ready to wear and online. I love these options from the Morrison Pinterest board.
The Coffeehouse Pant pattern works as summery beach pants, casual everyday pants and even dressed up for work. You can add top stitching, trims, a flat front waistband and use lots of fabrics including seersucker, linen to suitings and ponte knit.
More inspiration here from Pinterest including embroidery on the pocket and hem. I also have a post on adding a button placket to the hem. I have a sewing friend that made up 5 beautiful sets of pajamas using the Coffeehouse Pant and Morrison Top pattern bundle. They're beautiful and comfortable and so easy to make.
I'm working on a new project using my left over scraps .I'm looking forward to sharing soon!
