Pattern Test: P4P Sweetheart & Me Hearties

P4P Sweetheart & Me Hearties Pattern Test by Made by Melli

Today is a good day for pattern releases! Two more amazing patterns have been released by another one of my favorite designers – Patterns for Pirates! Judy of Patterns for Pirates is one of 3 amazingly talented sisters who all create PDF sewing patterns. Her sisters are Megan of Made for Mermaids and Cole (and their mom Beth) of Cole’s Creations. I have had the pleasure of testing for both Megan and Cole, but this is my first P4P pattern test. Of course, I own almost all of the other P4P patterns, too. She has one of the best collections of Women’s patterns, and also has patterns for girls, boys, and a couple for the men as well!

I’ll start off with the Girl’s Me Hearties dress & peplum. Such an amazingly sweet and versatile pattern for the littles! I absolutely love the sweetheart neckline and the twirly circle skirt, and the plain bodice is darling as well! Judy was in need of baby testers, so I borrowed my friend’s adorable blue-eyed little girl! I really wish at least one of my children would have gotten their dad’s blue eyes. And I think I neeeeed another baby girl. So bad.

I sewed up the 9 month size, plain bodice, 3/4 sleeve, peplum, with FOE neck and sleeve binding. I left the hem raw (since it’s knit, it won’t unravel). I used all cotton/lycra knits from Riley Blake’s Idle Wild collection. I paired this darling top with some full length Bonny Leggings.

Here are the options for the Me Hearties Dress & Peplum:

Sizes 3 months – Girls 14

Dress or Peplum Length

Colorblocked Sweetheart or Plain Bodice

Overlay Option

Short, 3/4, or Long Sleeves

Regular Hem, FOE binding & hem, & Trimmed hem options & instructions

Full circle skirt

The Women’s version is just as amazing and cute as the girls version! This dress/top is flattering on every size, and has so many options to customize the look! I need like 20 more of these with all of the different variations.

For my top, I sewed up an XL, long sleeve, peplum, overlay/colorblock, with FOE neck binding, and unhemmed skirt. I used burgundy cotton/lycra from Girl Charlee, with a black stretch lace overlay. I found the stretch lace at Walmart, of all places! This top is perfect for all occasions, and I totally plan on wearing mine for Valentine’s day! I absolutely love that I was able to create a modest-with-a-little-bit-of-sexy look 🙂

Here are the options for the Women’s Sweetheart Dress & Peplum:

Sizes XXS-Plus 3X

Tank, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, or long sleeve

Peplum, Mini, or Knee Length

Plain Bodice, Colorblocked Sweetheart, or Overlay (or a combination)

Regular Hem, FOE binding & hem, & Trimmed hem options & instructions

Full Circle Skirt
