Here is Rae with a little bit about her pattern company:

Made by Rae makes simple and basic patterns that you can learn to sew on and are easy to vary. Each one is a staple pattern for your children’s wardrobe.

One of her patterns has become very much a staple for Kid’s Clothes Week: the flashback skinny tee. Every season a ton of flashback tees pop up in the project pool. No wonder–it is a simple pattern that works in so many different ways. Rae has many tutorials on her blog for changing up the basic flashback tee pattern

Another of Rae’s patterns, the geranium dress, was featured in both Brienne’s post about how to make clothes that layer well and Laura’s post on making clothes that work for summer and winter. In addition to layering well and working for many seasons, the geranium dress is super cute! Rae also has a tutorial for adding trim to your geranium.

But what about the bottom half of your child? Rae’s got that covered too. Her parsley pants pattern is amazingly versatile. She’s got a tutorial for upcycling parsley pants and reinforcing their seams. But maybe your little one isn’t out of diapers yet? Well there is a Made by Rae pattern for those babies too–The Big Butt Baby Pants!

    I love the pants! but I think the dress is super sweet and my daughter would love it. Since I always sew for her, the favorite has to be something that the boys can wear as well!

    I’m sewing for a soon (i hope) to be newborn right now, so I’ve got some of rae’s newborn pants awaiting assembly. Can’t wait to be able to use that flashback T pattern. All those variations!

    My favorite is the Washi Dress pattern. But I also really like the kids patterns. I have been making the Big Butt Pants pattern for all sorts of things. Most recently as pajama pants for the holidays.

    I love Rae’s patterns. The FSBT was my first sew with knits, and I’ve sewn it multiple times since. Same as the Parsley pants : my older boy has several pairs, in corduroy, denim, cotton, and also as pajam pants. Also live the Charlie tunic, fun to sew for boys and girls alike !
    I haven’t tried the Geranium yet…

    I love Rae’s patterns! I’ve made a couple dozen pairs of Big Butt Baby Pants over the last year or so, and have my eye on the Washi dress (whenever I finally have the guts to make something fitted for myself).

  7. Carrie

    I love the geranium dress, and would love to have the parsley pants and flashback t for my collection. The geranium dress pattern would make a great gift for my friend who is new to sewing but very adventurous!

    Perfect timing! Baby boy is about to grow into the flashback tee sizing, and I have some friends of girls I am teachijg to sew. The geranium dress will be perfect for their next move. Thanks for the coupon codes!

    I have two sons that I would like to start making clothing for, and have also just recently started working with knits, so the Flashback Skinny Tee and the Parsley Pants would be perfect patterns to try. I love Made by Rae’s style.
