Emmaline Maxi, Dress, & Top

Bella Sunshine Designs is back!!!



Oh Hello, Gorgeous Emmaline.


This amazing pattern comes in 3 different lengths, PLUS two different skirt designs. Did you add that up? SIX OPTIONS! You can make the simple skirt or the chevron! I made one of each both in dress length. You can also choose the shorter top length or the beautiful Maxi dress. I needed a couple spring dresses and these are perfect!


Sleeve options range from sleeveless to long, but I am wearing the short length. Again summer is coming and it gets kinda hot in Ohio.


My fabric both came in bundles from SewSoEnglish. The hot pink, aqua, and the galaxy print are brushed poly and the pink polka dots is rayon spandex. I honestly can’t pick which one I like best!

Waiting for the flower to pop up!

I stitched up the 24 bodice with the INCLUDED full bust adjustment pattern pieces and graded to a 28 at the waist! I removed 2 inches from the bottom of the bodice as I am only 5’1. That brought my skirt up to where my natural waist is and gives a better overall look. I didn’t add to the bicep area as was loose enough to fit. I like the fluttery fit of these sleeves.

Size range from kiddos to 30 women’s. Dont forget the full bust adjusted pieces included. So make yourself one, your kiddo one, and the next door neighbor lady! This is great for everyone!!

My thoughts:

I love this design so much! It feels good, it fits great! I like that it isn’t lined, both because it will be cooler in summer and less fabric usage. Yep! I am cheap like that. πŸ™‚ Also since getting a serger my neckbands look way better! I have worn my dresses and do not pull and tug at them because the fit correctly. I love that the pattern comes with a FBA already done for me. I swear every designer should do this! Why wouldn’t they do this? This is loaded with options plus it will mix and match all the options of both The Sahara and The Clementine. BONUS!! So basically that is a closet full right there! Oh yeah, #Idontsewforothersbutformommaiwill aka Momma Mia is already asking questions about this one….she has her eyes on one I think.

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, β€œI like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, β€œThanks, 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
