The Sly Fox T shirt fabric sale is still going strong, but we are running out of time to place orders! (I know my blogs have been slower than planned) Have you ordered something amazing yet? I can’t wait to see what starts popping up in the FB group! Don’t forget you can use code PerfectT to save 40% off of any of these fabrics …. DTY, Modal, Double Brushed Poly, Triblend, French Terry and Knub Jersey.
The Toronto Tee is a FREE pattern from Rebecca Page so there is no excuse not to give it a try. This is a sized through 5x. The Toronto Tee is a great boxy fit top and could also be extended into a longer length comfy T-shirt dress. I had never sewn this top before this time and was pleased to find when I checked out and got the pattern emailed to me, I was given a discount code for another purchase! That was a nice added bonus for sure! If you weren’t aware, Rebecca Page has a ton of free patterns (especially amazing holiday dresses) and you should get on their mailing list to stay in the loop.
Today’s Fabric is another amazing one! I love solid Navy as a background and it really makes all the bright colors in this top pop!! This DTY print is called Vibrant on Navy and that name basically says it all! I think that even though Fall is coming to my neck of the woods, the navy background makes it perfect to wear all year.
You should hurry and get your shopping done, so you won’t miss out on this great fabrics!

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
