Would you like to “Be Mine?”

Be Mine Cardigan by Ellie and Mac

It is still cardigan season in Ohio and I just sewed up another one. 🙂 The latest release from Ellie and Mac is basically adorable. I am still debating on what sleeve length I want, so I haven’t hemmed them yet. I think they are going to be 3/4 length which will be nice for spring. We will see. This is one of life’s tough decisions – no doubt.  I will go with slouchy for another wear before deciding.

This cardigan comes in women’s sizes XXS-4X. Plus there is a kiddo version for your Mommy and Me pics!

The Women’s Be Mine Cardigan Pattern features a hi-low bodice, gathered skirt in three lengths, and sleeve options! All these options give ya more bang for your buck!

I did a bust adjustment to accommodate for my busty-ness and I think it helped my styling overall here. I added 2 inches to the bodice and removed 2 inches for the skirt length to get this proportion. This cardi comes with length options included, but I just freestyled a bit. That’s how I sew most days.


I am mismatching my prints here, but I also love my galaxy pants too. I make up reasons to wear them – honestly!

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
