Another Jessie for Momma Mia

I feel like this is about the 7th or 8th time I have sewn up a version of the Jessie Dress from 5 out of 4. Here is another one for Momma Mia…it is her favorite pattern after all. Anytime I ask her what she wants, she says, “Another Jessie.” Big shock here when she wanted a fall version of her beloved Jessie. The joke is on her though because fall has skipped Ohio and the giant pile of leaves in my front yard is buried with about 4 inches of snow.

This is the long A line skirt option of Jessie with 3/4 sleeves. This time I used the included racer back inset with this dress though. I typically don’t even give her the option of picking this because I don’t like binding fiddly little pieces and this fiddly little piece would require an extra 4 pieces of binding. I sewed a XL with the included FBA graded to a XXL and back to an XL for this dress. I used the high front with the low back options for the neckline. This time I decided to use a solid color for the bands. I rarely do this, but always love when Laura from Kitty Makes It does it.

This beautiful Double Brushed Poly is from Stitchin’ Pretties. It is currently sold out as I picked this up last fall. I made myself a lovely top from it so Momma Mia needed to order herself some! Stitchin’ Pretties has a ton of great options in stock right now so don’t worry, you will find something great! Currently Stitchin’ Pretties has a huge sale happening of buy 2 yards and get a coordinate for free! Super fast turn around time as always!

So what you can’t see from these photos is that I actually drug Momma Mia out into the snow and cold. I took these photos after a weird snowstorm had just popped up. There was beautiful snow everywhere. Every single photo was rubbish. I am still learning my new camera and had somehow set the focus to the background instead of the front. Momma Mia was a frozen blurry blob! Not good for showing just how awesome this dress actually is.  Sorry for making you suffer for nothing, Momma Mia! These pictures are a bit better!

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
