You can’t pinch me, I am wearing green.

Lucky for me, I just happen to have this pretty Springy- Minty green on hand. I picked it up several weeks ago for $1 a yard at Wal-Mart. It is a thicker, textured fabric that sewed up surprisingly well.

Waiting for Spring. Snow please go away.

I wore mine belted today, but this also looks awesome unbelted. You can choose between a shorter length like mine or a knee length option. Same with the sleeves, I went short, but if you prefer you can go long. You could also do both, I won’t judge you. I feel like I have been on the cardigan super highway lately. I think, I have made 5-6 in the last month or so. This comes in sizes XXS-5X. I graded from a 4x bodice to a 5x waist and back to the 4x. The sleeves were narrow on this one and I adjusted 3 inches at the bicep. Be sure to measure before you cut your pretty fabric. 🙂

Happy St. Partick’s Day!

If one single person I went to High School with remembers this, I hope it makes them smile too. We had a teacher who always said this poem when we took tests. It has been nearly 18 years since I took my last class with her, but I still remember this poem.  sunset-hands-love-woman.jpg Mrs. Kay

Good Luck, Class! Good Luck!

I do wish you well.

I do think you’re swell.

Good Luck, Class! Good Luck!

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
