Omni Family Tour

Pin It
IT's a FAMILY affair with the Omni Tempore Pattern by Sofilantjes Patterns!  And today I get to be a part of the pattern tour, actually I get to be 2 stops and you can check out my other post over at Daisy Chain Creations. Let's just say, I covered the gambit with the size ranges (2 12 month ones, 1 size 10, 1 size 12, 1 adult small and 1 adult medium) I made and it was kind of fun.
Here are the 3 that would fall in the Tween range...and they all love them.
Size 12, Adult small and 10
The Omni is a very quick sew...seriously it is one of those patterns that takes longer to tape and cut out than to actually sew. The other great thing about it is the size range...12 months to XXXL. You can't beat that? 
It comes with several options, like shawl collar or hood, banded waist or not, cuffs or not and is to be made out of fabric with stretch. I used micro fleece for the girl's and sweatshirt material for the navy one. (Check out the many stops on the tour to see what others have used...I used a knit fabric for my version)
Sophia got a shawl collar with the kangaroo pocket, cuffs and waist band.
Good: The instructions were great and easy to follow. The many options and sizes available. The simplicity of what is needed (just fabric!). The wear-ability and comfort of the finished product. There are lots of good things with this pattern.
For the 2 adult versions I added the hood option instead. Just be forewarned, it takes a lot of fabric to get the hood...don't skimp on that part of it.
Bad: I would say the only bad thing is that it seems to run a little small (or maybe we just ate too much on Thanksgiving...these pictures were taken the day after because of bad weather the day before Thanksgiving). If you want it for layering/wearing something underneath, I would go up a size than the one listed for your measurements. My kids like to wear sweatshirts like coats almost (something they might have to change now that we don't live in the warmer South), so they like to layer them and take them off in the warmer classrooms at school...Ethan especially would have liked his a little roomier.
Ugly: Nothing at all.
I give this pattern 5 LIGHTENING BOLTS, because it really is a great pattern.
Disclaimer: This pattern was given to me as part of the tour, but all opinions are my own. I really do think it is a great pattern and wore mine out shopping all day today.
