24/7 I am living in this top

EAM 24-7 Top 4x-5x 13

It is super pretty right? I am loving this one and living in it 24/7 because it is the 24/7 top!! So this is an awesome top to make with either yardage or small leftovers. The top is designed for knits and the bottom is even more versatile because you can use knits or wovens. That’s pretty fantastic to me!

I have already made two tops and I think I will need a few more. I have a stash of small cuts that this top will be perfect for! The only adjustment I made was adding about 2 inches to the Dolman sleeve to fit my bicep.

This top features:

Dolman style bodice

Short sleeve

Hi Lo hem

Center back pleat

Color blocked style

The sizes range from XXS-5X. For reference I made the 4x graded to a 5x.

 So this pattern is on sale until Sunday the 22nd. The sale price is only $3.85!! Also while you are shopping, take a look at all the patterns which are already marked 25% off. Use code HOT15 to save an extra 15% off. 🙂 You are welcome!

My thoughts: This one sewed up very quickly. I printed, taped, cut, and assembled in about 2 hours! I used my serger for the seams and didn’t finish the bottom edge of the top. It is knits and I didn’t want to mess up the curvy. with a woven, you will need to finish it. This is super easy for all skill levels! You can do it!

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
