Has the heat of summer reached your area yet? I know it has in Ohio and I needed a new swim suit! When the opportunity to test a swim dress for 5 out of 4 patterns came up I didn’t have to think twice about signing up! So I made a swim top and a tank top! Here is my tank! I love it! The color blocking it pretty fantastic!

5004 Rosanna 4x 10

This is a 4x bust graded to a 5x waist. I used the included FBA pieces to make this short swim dress length top. I chose to do a half circle skirt. Also for reference, this is the high neckline option.

The pattern includes all these options

  • Regular Bodice and 1″ FBA Bodice pieces.
  • Peplum, Swim Dress, Short or Long Full Circle Skirt Lengths.
  • Peplum, Swim Dress, Short or Long Half Circle Skirt Lengths.
  • Finish arms and neckline with binding, bands or elastic.
  • Thin or thick back strap and basic instructions that you can use for infinite creative backs.
  • 2 Neckline Options: High or Low Scoop

Love this colorblocking! This amazing fabric is Sly Fox Fabrics. The print is Double Brushed Poly – Tropical Oasis in Purple. Also shown is Orchid Solid in Double Brushed Poly. 

5004 Rosanna 4x 1I left my back open, but you have the option to add straps like I did for all three Jessie tops/dresses I made.

One last picture to show you it really is an amazing top, but stay tuned I have a swim version with Tidal Wave shorts coming to the blog soon. I suggest picking up both patterns while they are on sale!

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
