This dress comes with several options and gives you several looks to wear as the seasons transition from Summer into Fall. I made the knee length dress, but looking back I wish I would have height adjusted the bodice a bit. The majority of the other testers dresses weren’t as baggie as mine. I choose to make a scoop neck with elbow length sleeves.  This dress has a dolman style sleeve and during testing Jessica, the designer, talked me through a bicep adjustment for these sleeves. Before testing wrapped up she adjusted the pattern and it fit me without issues. Since I have done several dolman style tops lately be on the look out for a short video to teach you how to adjust the sleeves for your own fit!



  • Necklines: Crew // Scoop
  • Sleeve Lengths: Short Sleeve Cuffed // Elbow Length // 3/4 Sleeve // Long Sleeves
  • Skirt Lengths: Shirt // Knee Length // Maxi
  • Size range 00-36

Ok Let’s talk about this amazingly soft, super cozy, Tri-blend Jersey fabric. It came from Sly Fox Fabrics. I have linked you to the Tri-Blend section on the Sly fox Website.

Sometimes you just have to have a little fun to make it through hot weather and blazing sunshine!

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
