Clementine, Sweet Clementine

Bella Sunshine Designs has a new dress out and it is some kind of


Plus they are having a current 30% off site wide sale for their Birthday!

Clementine, Bella Sunshine Designs, maxi dress

True to their style, this pattern includes a Full Bust Adjustment which is one of the reasons I love them. It saves me the time and the work of doing it myself. The bodice is fully lined so I don’t have to stress over perfect top stitching because no one sees it.


I choose to do the mid length sleeve so I could wear it most of the year. I also made the maxi length dress but the pattern comes in a midi length as well as a top. Another option is decorative bands around the lower skirt. I chose not to do them because I didn’t have anything on hand to match this amazing fabric. I know, hard to believe that, but I swear it is true. Speaking on fabric this is Savage in Teal from Sly Fox Fabric. They are very quickly stealing my heart over there. 🙂

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
