Picnic With LOVE!

Picnic With LOVE!

Picnic With Love Hello fellow sewists! My name is Cindy and I am excited to be here today to share my pattern mash with you.  I have only been sewing since 2017 and I am completely self/internet taught. Therefore, I fully understand the fear of mashing patterns.  Hopefully today I can help you set those fears aside and dive into this simple combination of the Picnic Dress (https://georgeandgingerpatterns.com/products/the-picnic-dress-womens-sizes-pdf-sewing-pattern) and the With Love Dress (https://georgeandgingerpatterns.com/products/the-with-love-dress-womens-sizes-pdf-sewing-pattern?_pos=1&_sid=26e94e1d0&_ss=r) to create the Picnic Dress with a maxi skirt.

Groovy Crimson Mash!

Hi all! I’m Gwen from Crafty Curly Couture. I’m so excited to be here on the G+G blog sharing this hack/mash up with you. Today I’m going to be hacking the Crimson Dress to a non-peplum shirt by mashing it with the Groove Tank. I also made it with just one flounce (the smaller one) instead of two.

The flounce also feels so elegant to me. For this hack,...

There will be minimal modifications to the patterns, plus, as an additional bonus, both patterns you will need are available for free if you’re a part of the G+G and Sincerely Rylee Facebook groups....

Zappa Shorts...Two Ways!

Zappa Shorts...Two Ways!

Hi all, I’m Jamie Rich!  You can find me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/whiletheyweresinging) where I share all my makes- when I remember to, that is. And also on Facebook (www.facebook.com/plottwistthreads) in a little shop that I collaborate on with a friend. Today I’m going to share with you how to make supremely cute and stylish shorts from the Zappa pants pattern. You can find the pattern here: https://georgeandgingerpatterns.com/products/the-zappa-pants-womens-sizes-pdf-sewing-pattern?aff=66 (this link is an affiliate link, meaning I do get a small commission when you buy through it). This idea was born out of the desperation of not being able to find shorts that...

A Lively Romy!

A Lively Romy!

Hello! I’m Aimee Wilson – also known as The Sewing Scientist. Feel free to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see all my makes. I am so excited to bring to you my Lively Romy mashup to the George + Ginger Blog! I really love mashing patterns together to make new and exciting things.

The steps I will be showing you can be applied anytime you are wanting to mix the top half of a pattern with the lower half of another....
