I am so grateful that I have finally had time to get some sewing done and work through some of the patterns I have had downloaded for over a year now. In my stack of fabric there was a pretty pink and brown flowered print that just called Kanani’s name! I flipped through my patterns and found the Hawaiian Pa’u Hula Outfit Pattern from Liberty Jane Patterns and got started.

This pattern is SUPER easy!! And when I say that, I mean it is the PERFECT pattern for beginners as it consists of sewing 6 straight lines and threading 4 pieces of elastic.

This whole outfit took less than an hour for me to make – and I am sure that when I make another one it will be even quicker. I took a shortcut by cutting the fabric so the bottom hem did not need to be hemmed up – it is the selvedge edge. I did not give the top straps, but the next time I make this I will add the strap – just to help Kanani avoid any embarrassing moments.

Gwen’s sandals work well with this outfit, too! Super cute.

If you are looking for easy patterns to start with, I highly recommend the patterns from Liberty Jane Patterns and if you want to learn the very basics of sewing, Rosie’s Doll Clothes Sewing Course is very thorough and affordable.

Happy Sewing!!
