Hi gang! Another pattern has been updated over at Love Notions and it happened to be on $5 Friday Feature today only!! That is a savings of 7 bucks. This time it is the Sonata Dress and it is now upgraded to the 5x size chart with 4 cup sizes included. I was able to pretest this one to get a great time and share it with my readers.
This pattern is drafted for woven fabrics or stable knits and it is super comfy. This pattern has pockets, a perfect neck facing to add a pop of color as well and no buttons or zips! Here is the website description list.
Meant for woven fabrics
Faced or lined bodice options
4 cup sizes: A, B, C, D
Bust and waist darts for feminine shaping
Elastic casing at the back
Optional in-seam pockets
I am the guest blogger at Love Notions today and I am discussing different fabric options and how they work with this pattern. Here is the link if you would like to check it out.
I shortened this magenta version by 7 inches and lengthened the sleeves by 3 inches. It is now a perfect compliment to my Sabrina Slims.
Don’t forget this pattern will only be $5 TODAY!!! That is a savings of 7 bucks!!
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
