Modal Fabric + 5oo4 Patterns

Holy-Modal!! Pre Sale Time

Sly Fox is tempting us again with another pre-sale. This time it is Modal Jersey. I was thrilled to be given a chance to sew up 2 yards of this beautiful lavender. Honestly, I was willing to sew up any color they wanted to give me, but between us I don’t think I can pull off chartreuse very well. 🙂


First off, Let’s talk about what Modal is. Think about your favorite T-shirt in your stash. Soft, cool, smooth to the touch, cozy, snuggly… yeah that one…well this is better! The weight has been described as between a rayon spandex and a double brushed poly, but more breathable. Also it resists pilling which makes me beyond happy! Another thing I am happy to report on is how incredibly easy it was to stitch. It did require a good amount of pressing with a medium heat iron after I left it sit in the laundry basket for several days. #Dontjudgeme

The preorder dates are 10-10 thru 10-14 so don’t miss out! Order now!!! The colors that will be available are Marsala, Chartreuse, Ivory, Charcoal 2T (Dark), Mustard Gold, Rust, Burgundy, Plum, Slate, and Navy Midnight. Every single one of these colors will scream fall! So hurry up and get your orders in!

When my fabric arrived, I noticed I already had a very similar color in my stash, maybe one shade darker. Apparently, I was hoarding it! Again, #Dontjudgeme I put some serious thought into what I wanted to make then asked for suggestions. Sometimes, when fabric is super amazing, I have a hard time deciding what to make. I am always scared to mess it up or make something that doesn’t fit right, so I prefer to stick with tried and true successes when I promo!

This time, I used my beautiful lavender modal to make the Eleanor Cardigan that released 2 weeks ago from 5oo4. I just want to wrap myself up in all the amazingness! The cardigan sewed up quickly especially since this was my second time making it. I teamed my modal up with Brazen, a single brushed poly, I picked up on a Sly Buy a few months back!  I used Brazen to create the neckband then shortened the sleeves. I added matching cuff bands to the sleeves. I really don’t like long sleeves when they are loose fitting. I always feel like they get wet when I wash my hands or dirty from rubbing on stuff.  My dress is another slight hack from 5oo4. This is the Virginia Tank top with 7 inches of length added. Instant Tank Dress! It is just like the one I made for Momma Mia in a previous post.

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
