Discoverer Tee – Rediscovered

EAM Discovereer Tee 4x-5x (2) - Copy
Women’s Discoverer Tee has gotten an update and a few new options. Ellie and Mac has been working through updating some of her older patterns to expand their size range, the format, improve fit and typically adds an option or two. If you haven’t sewn this top, give it a go! I love that it can be easily color blocked and that I was able to use scraps to assemble my top! Ellie and Mac currently has a sale on all patterns. Buy one, Get one FREE!
I sewed the 4x graded to a 5x at the waist. I added 2.5 inches to length and added 2.5 inches to the bicep as this pattern is very slim fitting. I chose to sew the long sleeve option with the newly added sleeve cuff.  This pattern now comes with 3 sleeve lengths an included sleeve bands. There is also an included waistband option. Discoverer Tee now comes in sizes up to 5x.
My fabric for this top is left overs from a few other sews, but it is all from Stitchin’ Pretties. Both fabrics are double brushed poly. I love the softness and the comfort level of this type of knit. Stitchin’ Pretties currently has a big sale happening and you probably shouldn’t miss it. Here is the link. Stitchin’ Pretties.

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
