Free patterns for boys- site

http://www.freepatternsforboys.com/
This has been a longtime coming! I have created a new site with the free boy patterns on it!
I will start blogging, on the new site, pattern updates that I add and I will be no longer be adding to the current list that I have here. A few reasons for this change is that I want people looking for the patterns to be able to see an image of each pattern before going to the site so I have done that. 
I feel like this is going to be a good change and will help; everyone find the patterns easier!
Go there and follow me on twitter, facebook, bloglovin, google+ and by email so you can get updates on when I add new patterns :0)

Grils in pink

 My sis in law sent me some pictures of the girls in their dresses and I just wanted to post them up for you guys to see! And to brag a bit about how stinking cute my nieces are ;0) I mean really Daisy's baby cheeks are delicious! June is the sweetest girl and if you follow me on instagram (@seemesew) you would have saw us playing dolls together, it was way fun!

 You can see this dress on Jun is a bit baggier than her Christmas dress but it still looks great and the fit really isn't bad... I'm just super duper picky.

This sweet baby has the longest and prettiest lashes she looks like a perfect doll! She is like a dream baby too and rarely cries, well not that I've heard anyways, momma might say something different ;0)

Dresses in pink

Here are the other two dresses I made for my nieces!
 I used the little geranium for Daisy and I love it! The dress turned out so cute on her, I wish I had some pictures to share but I didn't manage to get any :0( Oh and that little blurry spot was from a smudge on my lens I didn't realize was there until way to late.

  
 The little geranium doesn't come with a sleeve option since its a free pattern but I found out that the modern baby doll top sleeve worked perfect when I shrunk it down to 72%. I did add an inch in the sleeve length but otherwise it fit like it was made for it!

I didn't change anything on this dress except to lengthen it a bit and I used a 1/4" seam allowance instead of 3/8" and it fit her perfectly! She was in about 3-6 months in store bought for reference.


 For June I again used the Modern Babydoll top and I really love the fit!

 Pardon the smudge again!
I didn't do a zipper like it called for, I added 1" in the sleeve, added 2" to the bodice and lengthened the skirt, hmmm that was more changes than I realized, lol! Otherwise I did everything basically like the pattern called for. I think I should have used the 1/2" seam allowance because the fit wasn't as perfect as I would have liked but Boston said it fit great so maybe its just me being super picky.
It was so fun to sew these up!
