The Cottage Mama – What’s New in the Shop?

As most of you know, I am going to be entering the world of children’s clothing pattern design.  I have been sewing like crazy testing out some of my new designs to see if they are ready to be sent out.  But on top of all that I have added some new things to the shop that I wanted to share with you all.

I will be releasing some of these designs as sewing patterns (plus some that you haven’t seen) and some of them will just stay as items in my shop and may be released as patterns in the future.

Strawberry Bubble Romper.  This is a fun play-suit for an infant/toddler and this strawberry fabric is one of my favorites.  The romper is fully lined and ties at the shoulder.  Perfect for a little crawler.
Flutter Sleeve Ruffle Peasant Dress.  I don’t typically offer this style dress, but I wanted to try my hand at this easy-to-wear, casual girls dress.  This has been a really big seller in the shop and I am down to the very last yard of this vintage trim.

Purple Swirls Pinafore and Bloomer Set.  This outfit is a lot of fun and perfect for a little crawler or toddler.  I love the banded bloomer which gives these a little different look than your typical bloomer (they look a little more like a short).  The top has a retro-inspired cross-back and is very cool in the summer.  The top also looks adorable paired with a long-sleeved shirt and jeans for an easy transition to fall.
Summer Berry Frock.  This is a simple knot dress in fabulous bright, eclectic fabric!  I like these dresses for my girls because they transition nicely from season to season.  For summer I would just add a pair of sandals, but for fall I would pair this with a long-sleeved shirt, tights and boots.
The Sweet Dress.  This is one of my favorite designs done in one of my favorite fabrics.  The green and blue fabric is feminine without being super-girly and pink.  This is a great dress for a toddler on up and is fully-lined and comfy to wear.
Fully Reversible Bubble Romper.  Done in the same “sweet” fabric as the dress above, this romper is fully reversible and is two looks in one.
The Sweet Dress and Reversible Bubble Romper are two of my favorite looks for sister outfits.
All-Star Romper.  A little something for a baby boy or toddler.  This romper is perfect for summer-time play and will keep your little guy nice and cool during the warm summer days.  It has a large pocket on the front for collecting “treasure” and the pocket is accented with royal blue piping.
A-Line Mod Shift Jumper.  I designed this dress with a little bit older girl in mind, but it could certainly be worn by a toddler.  The sophisticated color palette of purple, grey, lime green and pink are perfect for a girl who wants something with a little style, but not too over the top.  The dress is fully lined, has two large pockets and closes at the shoulder with fabric covered buttons.
So that’s just a little update about some new things going on in the shop.  If you are interested in keeping updated with new designs, exclusive sales and happenings with The Cottage Mama, come join us over on Facebook.  Click HERE to become a fan of “The Cottage Mama“.

  1. I’m glad to see a couple of things that aren’t just repeats of the millions of patterns already out there (like peasant dresses and alines, those patterns are everywhere!). I love the little romper and that sweet dress is well, sweet! LOL! Great work!

  2. Wow, you are so talented. You have a good eye for the finished product. I really like the sweet dress. If I could choose a sewing superpower it would be to be able to design and draft my own patterns. I am sure your patterns will do well.

  3. Wow! I wish you every success with this endeavor. You are a very talented. I just wish I still had tiny ones for these cute clothes!

  4. I LOVE the Big Sister/Little Sister set, I have 2 granddaughters….they may have to have this set….Blessings~

  5. These are all so beautiful and the quality is evident. Thank you also for the high quality photos you post. Regarding pattern making, how do you create the different sizes? Do you have some kind of software program that does that?

  12. Lindsay, you should be very SAD that my son is too young yet to give me a granddaughter, because I’d be your best customer!!! Your Strawberry Romper, Berry Dress, and especially your “Sweet Dress” would already be purchased by me! I’m NOT a sewer, so I would buy them fully done! Congrats to you and good luck in your business endeavors. You do such superb work.
