BSD Sahara

Bella Sunshine Designs is releasing an updated version of the Sahara with expanded sizes and I have been lucky enough to test the pattern. Drum Roll please….    Resized_20171001_160514-1

Oh yeah, I went with camo. It is hunting season after all.  So this fabulous pattern is packed full of options. First off  the sizes now range from 0-30 and it includes a Full Bust Adjustment for us curvy girls. Three Sleeve options from Sleeveless to Long Sleeved. Overall length includes Top, Tunic, and Long and you also have options for the neckline.Resized_20171001_161010

All these options mean you can make a closet filled with the Sahara and still have a lot of variety.

In true Bella Sunshine Designs style, this pattern has excellent directions and an entire group of awesome people willing to help out. I am fairly new to ‘successful’ garment sewing and I was able to sew this up in just a few hours. So go check it out! Click here to Purchase the pattern and put some change in my pocket then click here for their Facebook link and see up with what is going on.


I picked this Camo Polyester fabric up at Walmart for a steal and love the way my top turned out.


Aww my little Millie.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
