Alley Cat Daydream - MMUp (9) Sewing the MashUp

It's a busy day on the blog, but don't think I've forgotten about the fabulous Alley Cat Daydream mash-a-long!  Today we're sewing the MMUp and this one couldn't be more simple.

Just as there were no alterations to make to the individual pattern pieces, this month there isn't anything different to do with the sewing.  Simply follow the instructions for making the bodice of the Alley Cat Romper (*affiliate link), and then jump over to how to sew the skirt portion of the Daydream Ruffle Dress.  Instead of gathering the skirt to fit the Daydream bodice, gather it to fit your Alley Cat bodice and voila!  Instant MashUp!

Next week I'll be showcasing Bean's Alley Cat Daydream as well as a few of the MashUps in the link up.  Have you added yours yet??  As a reminder the Alley Cat Daydream mash-a-long schedule is:

Thursday 9/4: Introduce the patterns and open the giveaway (giveaway ends on 9/17 at midnight EST)
Thursday 9/11: Reveal the MashUp, alter the patterns, and open the link up (open until 9/24 at midnight EST)
Thursday 9/18: Begin sewing the MashUp with the Giveaway winner announced on Facebook and Instagram
Thursday 9/25: Share the details of the MashUp and features from the link up

Be sure to follow the Monthly MashUp Pinterest board if you'd like some more inspiration for garments to mash.


  1. oh, BEAN!!!! love that kiddo and seriously she is suddenly looking so grown up! sigh, these kids and their growing, amiright?? love the cardi XO

  2. She's growing so quickly! I mean this cardi is a little big on her now, but I guarantee it'll be perfect this winter. But speaking of how quickly they grow..... your two on the cover have grown SO MUCH since then :)

  3. right?!?!? I was just looking at that! goodness....

  4. I'm loving her reversible cardi! I lhadnr seen it bitty sized yet:) looks like fall is finally here and you are prepared! (Unlike me...)

  5. Oh girl I'm so not prepared. It usually doesn't hit here in MD until late October and last year it was even into November before it turned cold. This year of course all of September has had a chill. I love it, but I wasn't ready for preschool leggings and cardis at all. I seriously whipped up a pair of leggings before school the other day cause she wanted to wear a dress that her legs would have frozen in.... i'm ridiculous haha.

  6. Super cute Ajaire! It looks so cozy and I just love that fabric!
