Be Greater

I am back with another winner from Ellie and Mac.


Momma and Me Edition

Be Greater Ellie and Mac

Hi-lo hem to the max! Not my usual look, but in the tunic version it totally worked for me. I sewed this up from some newly acquired Double Brushed Poly from So Sew English. I had just finished my version and was still admiring it when in walks Momma Mia. She loved it too and wanted one. <Insert Side Eye> Just kidding! Sure Momma! Whatever you want!

Let’s measure… Ten minutes later my hashtag became #IdontsewforothersbutIwillformomma 🙂

Momma and Me Grown Up Edition! we have all seen the kiddo version of Mommy and Me, but my dogs refuse to wear clothes so they aren’t really my thing. 🙂

Thankfully I had enough fabric and a few extra minutes. This one went together quickly as it is only 5 pieces. Can’t beat that for a quick one!

Momma and Me

We are so cute! 🙂 This comes in crop, shirt, tunic and dress length! Short and long sleeves are included with the pattern. The sleeves are roomy in this dress and I didn’t require a bicep adjustment which I typically need. I shortened my dress 3 inches as I only 5’1 and it was designed for 5’5. At regular length the back bodice would  be tucked into my boots.  🙂 No height adjustment for Momma Mia.

I have worn this twice now and both times received several compliments and smiled while saying, “Thanks, I made it.” I am finally beginning to feel like I am getting this sewing thing sorted out. More successes than failures….Dare I think I am really becoming a seamstress.

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
