Easy Tee V. 5.0

I’m back with my second Easy Tee of the Week. Easy Tee 5.0 This time we are doing the regular tunic version and I am using this amazing Double Brushed Poly from Sly Fox Fabrics! Do you see a trend here? I love DBP!! I love to sew with it. I love how it feels. I love the vibrant colors and prints. It really is one of my favorite fabric bases to sew with. As it warms up, people often say they get too hot while wearing it. I am so lucky that doesn’t happen to me. I love how soft and how it easily flows when I move about.

This fabric is brand spanking new at Sly Fox. The named it Liberty Belle which is super appropriate for the upcoming season! It released yesterday and is perfectly timed for all the Memorial and Independence Day festivities! I am basically crazy about floral anything and this print is no exception! You can see my picture under the photos of Liberty Belle by clicking here. I have already ordered 4 more yards of this print for a customer wanting a summer maxi dress!

I never really felt like I was into such girlie prints until I began making my clothing. It turns out, cute clothes just weren’t made with plus sized gals in mind. Sure there are some things out there, but overall it is difficult to shop ready to wear for my body.

This time I am wearing the regular tunic length without a band. I like the easy of making this garment and the comfort level of all things drafts at 5oo4. They sure know what they are going. I used the scoop neck collar again, but actually scooped it out a bit more than the pattern does. Summer is coming, It is going to be hot. I made a shorter sleeve, but not the shortest sleeve length in the pattern. This put the sleeve length at just above the elbow. Again, I have done a full bicep adjustment of 1.5 inches. This is typical for me to do in all patterns.

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
