Blown Away

Be Breezy 4x 14

So I recently was asked to join my second strike off team and I couldn’t wait to get started. Lucky for me, I soared to the top of the promo list and quickly received my fabric. I picked two different prints from Stitchin’ Pretties so stay tuned for some more beautiful fabrics this week!

Be Breezy + Stitchin’ Pretties + Puppy Dog= PERFECTION

 

When I received this super soft, super adorable, Double Brushed Poly Print called Sophia, I knew I needed a girlie pattern to team it with. I wanted something I hadn’t tried before, but I also knew it needed to be a quick sew because I couldn’t wait to wear it! I bet you would have felt the same way. Psst… there may be a flash sale happening at Stitchin’ Pretties RIGHT NOW!!!

I turned to my stash of Ellie and Mac Patterns. Please don’t tell anyone, but I have a lot of them! I hadn’t sewn this one yet, so it was a perfect choice!

….DRUM ROLL PLEASE….

BE BREEZY

Be Breezy 4x 13

If you have been reading my blog long at all, you know I am a super fan of tops and dresses that are fitted through the bust and have a skirt attached at the natural waistline. Trust me, even if you are a round apple shape, you have a waist! This pattern not only has those features, but the skirt portion is angled. It is pointed in the front and the back. I like this as it covers my belly and my booty. Also it is a little bit different than a lot of others designs out there.

Be Breezy 4x 5
See the angle…nice huh?

I made the 4x size which is my typical size in EAM patterns and I adjusted the arms to accommodate my biceps which is also typical. Here is the video how to do it. I added 1.5 inches. I chose to make the mid-thigh length with short sleeves.  This pattern comes with several sleeve and length options so you can mix and match however you want! I made this top with a 2 yard cut of Sophia and have a nice size section left…maybe some matching socks or undies will be made. 🙂

 

So I made this top yesterday and wore it all day. I kinda hate to wash it because I want to wear it again already!

When you choose a pattern called Be Breezy it only seems right to share some windblown photos right?? Maybe I should have flown a kite in my pics…

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
