I was SO excited to test the two newest patterns for Made for Mermaids, Nina and Mama Nina. There are few things I love more than a cute, comfy swing dress, and Mama Nina is just the one I’ve been searching for my whole life. Please don’t tell my husband. 🙂
Mama Nina and Nina both feature several options, making it the perfect addition to back-to-school wardrobes for every age. AND! The raglan style sleeve is a PERFECT way to create some mommy-and-me looks with your boys. Made for Mermaids also offers the Rowan Raglan tee pattern, which would tie in beautifully for you boy moms that are feeling left out of the fun!
During testing, my little and I tried out top length, curved hem tunic length, hi-low dress length, short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves, pocket, and no pocket! Whew! I wasn’t kidding when I said I was in love! My favorite for my daughter is the tunic length; it’s the sweetest little top in any sleeve length.
Of course, we can’t get enough of the option to wear mommy-and-me Ninas either!
I wanted so badly for her to love her sparkly gold sleeves, but they are itchy and awful! I’m going to have to line the sleeves, because it’s just too cute not to wear. Speaking of fabric choices, definitely follow the fabric recommendations in the Mama Nina/Nina patterns. The gray & gold I made turned out super cute, and mine is extremely comfortable, but the cotton lycra is definitely not the most flattering. I also tried out liverpool – it was way too hot for July in the south, and it doesn’t drape in a flattering way AT ALL. Our favorites fabric choices were double brushed polyester, and rayon spandex.
Finally, Mama Nina in top length made great last minute additions to my fall mini-capsule. Look for my capsule post later this week!
