Nancy Raglan – Again!

This is one of Momma Mia’s favorite patterns. This pattern is the Nancy Raglan and it has loads of options! She has several already, I have a couple and now I am adding two more to her closet.

Today I am sharing a dress and another tunic with you. She is super excited about these as she “needed” some more pretty things in the closet.

Let’s start with the dress. I used double brushed poly for this one and these colors are so her. She wanted longer sleeves and a longer length. She frequently tells me how often she wears her dresses and I am 100% certain she is dropping hints for more. I am just glad she likes them. I ordered this fabric from fabric.com before Mother’s Day. I am not sure where the brown is from, it was just in my stash and a perfect match.

I sewed up a 1x graded to a 2x and then back to a 1x. I used 3/4 sleeves and the crew neck option. I think she is going to get a ton of wear out of this dress!

Because she is a little spoiled, I also made her a new tunic. This time I made the split side hem, long sleeves, and a crew neck. She needs to be covered up from the sun so this one is perfect for that!

This fabric is cotton lycra from Stitchin’ Pretties.  The reason I love CL is that it doesn’t make me feel hot. I wear it year round and it is just comfortable. I love it.

You can totally find this print in the clearance tab! CL for $5.99 a yard is a steal, just saying!

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
