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.
