Pattern Remix Guest: Susan from Living with Punks



Today I have the honor of introducing Susan from Living with Punks! This funky Momma has one of the coolest blogs around, and her talents seem to be endless! She can switch from clothing to home decor in a heartbeat, and everything always seems to come out fabulous! After all, you have to love a woman who has a way with pom poms.

Here are just a few other of my favorites:





And did I mention that she is in the middle of her own Series for the entire month of June, one that I had the privilege of being a part of on June 7th?!!

You have to check it out…waste not, want not – at least, not with your fabric scraps :).

3 kids, 1 husband, a blog, a series, and she still is making it work. An inspiration for me with my third on the way!

Of course Susan is incredible once again here today. Just take a look…

I am so excited to be here to show you my remix! You see, I am a rule follower, so this remix post was a challenge for me to even think about. I do have to admit I was intimidated, but after I got over it and sucked it up and got down to business, I love the outcome…and it was easier than I could’ve ever imagined!

I think Jessica has started a new obsession for me! Like I need more. Ha!

What I am most proud of is how easy this romper is to move in, because elastic around the legs can get tricky!

I started with Burda 9652. It was one of the first patterns I purchased when I started sewing and have used it many times to make some cute overalls.

The mods I made were cutting the inseam down to only 4”

I also added 4 belt loops between the bodice and the bottoms

I made a casing to hold the elastic to create a fun, gathered leg

And, I also changed the closure by adding velcro, instead of snaps

    Susan! I just bought this pattern last week! I haven’t made anything yet, but I love the idea of bring up the seam and adding elastic, wouldn’t have thought of that :)

    Beautiful work
