BIG NEWS!!! THIS PATTERN JUST WENT ON SALE FOR 30% OFF!!!

I am still catching up from being sickie… Here we go again!!

Annabeth XL-XXL (5)

I missed Momma Mia’s Birthday and Thanksgiving and work and life…

I was sickkkk. I missed all the fun, but I kept my cooties to myself. For a Birthday surprise, I sewed up a new top for Momma Mia. This is the Annabeth from 5oo4 patterns. She liked my original one so I thought she would enjoy a comfy shirt as well. I even got to dig into my scrap pile for this one!

Remember this gorgeous French Terry from my Constellation Hoodie? I sewed that project at Momma Mia’s and she mentioned she liked the fabric. Lucky for her, I had enough left overs to make her a shirt! I always feel Raglan tops, with their large wonky sleeves, lend themselves well to scraps because the bodice bodies and sleeves are often similar sized pieces. Typically, when I make a shirt that is cut on the fold, I end up with about a 15 inch offcut at the side and it goes into the scrap pile. Momma Mia needs about 15 inches to make her sleeves 🙂 So I used my left over FT for the bodice and leftover DBP for the sleeves, bands, and cuffs. Score! I used this same tan color recently on her Jessie Dress. I hope she liked the color. I think its pretty.

I made the XL FBA bust to a 3x waist back to an XL hip. This way, she can layer it up, wear it over leggings or just lounge around the house and be comfy. She is similar to me in this way and comfort always wins! Momma Mia is wearing a tunic length, not shortened for her height. I banded the sleeves and the bottom shirt hem. She got long sleeves, no pocket. Even though this top looks color blocked, I didn’t use the color blocked pattern option which is actually different panels for the sides.
Here are all of the options for Annabeth.

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
