Dreamy Drape

Some of you may know that recently I got a spot on the Rebecca Page Testing Team. Insert happy dance here. This is my first pattern test from them. The skirt here is the Add On to the Dreamy Drape Top which is technically what the test was for,  but I didn’t have the top to go with it so, why not?

First, let’s talk about the Skirt because that is the new release today! The pattern comes with the skirt and the dress options so you can pick or make both. No one is keeping track, I swear.

You can make the skirt or dress in mini, midi, or maxi length. My skirt is the midi length for reference. I adjusted a bit for height as I am only 5’1.

Another great feature is the walking vent. It is both functional and cute. I think it adds just a little something extra which punches it up a notch!

Ok on to the top

It’s pretty, right? It is so girlie and cute and this is honestly the first time I have EVER had a bat wing style shirt fit me. I choose to do the diagonal hem top because I liked the fact that it would cover my belly and honestly I just like separates. I recently wore this to work over jeans…loads of compliments.

If you aren’t into the pointed hem you can do a straight one or even attach your top to the skirt and have a cute little dress! Options…it is all about the options!

I sewed  5x in both of these pieces, but the pattern is available for kids through 5x. So Mommy and Me is 100% doable! Currently the pattern is on sale. 🙂 Also be aware this sews up fast and you can wear is on Easter!!!

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
