Once upon a time...

... there were two little Princesses who grew so tall

that they didn't fit into their mum's favourite jacket pattern anymore.

but then....
the pattern-making-Fairy-God-Mother made a new pattern!!!
In sizes 6-10, big enough to fit them both for many more years to come.

(Pattern cover pic from Make It Perfect)

Their mum (let's call her the fabric-hoarding-Queen!!), then jumped online and ordered some very special Far Far Away 2 fabric, covered in Sleeping Beauties and Rapunzels to make the new jackets from.

and everyone lived happily ever after!

To have your very own happy ending with a Big Uptown Girl jacket, pop over to Toni's blog and win yourself a copy of the pattern.

(The Queen realises she should have pulled out the Royal Pressing Machine and ironed that fabric after washing it and before posting a pic on the royal blog!)

Karen, those jackets will look amazing in FFA2 fabric.

I will look forward to seeing them made up.

I can't wait to see those jackets finsihed - I'm still trying to get around to making the same jacket for my little one, but it might not be until next year (the pattern has been sitting here for about a year now!!)

I love the FFA fabrics but I am still on the fabric ban so I doubt I will be buying any :( Unless I can convince myself I REALLY need it...

I can't wait to see the jackets, they are going to be beautiful.

I have this pattern and must get cracking before winter finishes! Keira wants to wear a dress everyday! mind you we won't be needing the big pattern for a while

Even when not ironed these fabrics are just beautiful! I have some of the first fabric that I haven't been brave enough to cut into yet. I can't wait to see the jackets!

Kate said...

That fabric will be perfect for jackets! I really must order some of it for myself.
