Filling my spring closet with Maggie

Since I just got serious about sewing back in late fall, my closet is in obvious need of things to wear as the weather improves and I can no longer hide under cardigans everyday. Last weekend I went on a marathon sewing spree and that consisted of two new Maggies. A few days later and pattern still out, I made another one with some small scraps I couldn’t bare tossing under the table.

 

First up, Short sleeve with a 1 inch bicep adjustment, Top length, low scoop neck

I made the size 24 with the included Full Bust Adjustment pieces, graded to a 28 at the waist and hip. This fabric is a super soft bushed poly from I am so blessed.

Next up

 

Tunic Length with the full bust adjusted pieces, Size 24 graded to a 28, Short sleeves with a 1 inch bicep adjustment, low neckline. This fabric is Liverpool from I am sew blessed also.

Lastly, A Maggie Dress! My first Maggie Dress. This dress came about because I had some leftover Gallery DBP fabric from Sly Fox Fabric that I literally couldn’t toss in the scrap bin because I loved it too much so it became sleeves and a neckband.

Again size 24 graded to a 28. I used the included full bust adjustment pieces again. I adjusted the bicep 1 inch and made short sleeves. This is the dress length.

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
