Love Notions -Whistler Updated

The Whistler Pattern is the coolest kid on the block and now I have two! First off, this isn’t a new pattern, but it is now available in the full size range offered from Love Notions. This pattern is XXS through 5X and includes a FBA. I have been admiring this one from on far, just waiting for it to come in the new size range! This pattern is intended for stable knits. This means heavier knits like Sweatshirt knits, Ponte, and Liverpool are perfect!! The Whistler was just re-released and you need it!  I love that this pattern has the option to either use a hood or have a shawl style detail at the neckline! I absolutely love that the pockets are placed vertically in the front of the bodice instead of the sides. I think this will be really nice when I am outside hiking because nothing will fall out of my pockets. (Spoiler Alert- IT IS PERFECT! I have now tried it out! Nothing falls out.)

First let’s talk about the design. This is a pull over style in the top, tunic or dress lengths. I love the versatility. I made 2 tunic lengths as I knew I would be wearing this when I am geocaching and hiking. I have now tried it out on two adventures and it is perfection! You can elect to make the pattern with a hood or the beautiful shawl option. Both designs have a button accent. You can make this functional or not. Mine is just sewn on, why make a buttonhole when you don’t need to? Dig deep into your button stash because you only need 1 large or 2 medium buttons for this look!

I made a new pair of Sabrina Slims in solid black ponte to wear with my new Whistlers. This time I made the seamed trousers since I didn’t have a pair of them yet. These pants are comfy as heck and I love them with boots and my pull over! Such an easy outfit. I have made several pair of Sabrina Slims at this point. You can check them out here.

The interested pocket design is really neat from the drafting process. There is an included video on how to put it together and makes it look so simple! I love the videos that show how to assemble potentially confusing steps! The link is in the pattern and you can just click to be taken right to it!

EAM – Go Exploring Cardigan

Hi Friends! I have been lazy about blogging lately. I sewed this one up months ago actually. Ugg I have been a bum, but trying to motivate myself. I have several really great things to share actually. So with this first picture, you will see that I am not the one wearing my lovely new cardigan…Momma Mia is. Huummm….Keep Reading.

I received this amazing stretch velvet from Stitchin’ Pretties for my monthly promo fabric and then used some pretty SP scraps I had in my bin for the accents. Floral and Stripes will always be amazing together, you will never convince me otherwise. You can find this lovely fabric listed as Jocelyn here. I thought it would make a beautiful cardigan and I wasn’t wrong. Let’s start with talking about velvet a bit.

When working with any sort of velvet you have to keep in mind it has a nap. This just means that the fabric lays one way and and you want it to all match. Usually if you brush your hand down the garment it will be smooth, if you pull your hand up along the fabric it will be rougher. Another thing with velvet, it you won’t iron it like normal cotton fabric. Again this is because of the nap. If you lay it on your ironing board and press the heck out of it, you will crush your pretty nap. If you have to iron it, you can use a velvet board or have two besties help you hold your fabric up in the iron and iron the back side. Note to readers, I didn’t iron this at all. 🙂 Also check your stretch percentage when making a a garment. This is should be a given, but sometimes I don’t do it. This is why Momma Mia now has a pretty new cardigan and I don’t. I sewed the 5x to give myself some extra wiggle room, but it was still too tight. Momma Mia is 3 sizes smaller and it fits her well. She is so happy with it.

I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to use this lush fabric for a cardigan. After looking at several, I decided to try out the Go Exploring Cardigan from Ellie and Mac. I had not made this one yet, but really liked the look of it. All of the models on the website looked super stylish. So I quickly printed and assembled my pattern. I really like that EAM patterns are pretty straight forward and I have made enough of them to have the routine down.

My pockets flapped open a bit more than I liked, so I dug into my button stash and produced these lovelies. Momma Mia sewed them on herself! Another change I would have made was actually adjusting for height. I normally don’t height adjust on anything that is shirt or cardigan because my side waist measurement is normal even though I am short. This cardigan is on the longer length so was too long for my taste. Note to self for the next time.

The Go Exploring Cardigan is now on sale for $4. Here is my afflink. Using my link doesn’t change anything for you, but I receive a small commission from the designer as a thank you.

Beautiful Stretch Velvet fabric is here.

Ellie and Mac – Cuddle Tunic

This is a fun one! I love this fabric and the pattern that I used with it. First, let’s talk about this fabric. Of course it came from Stitchin’ Pretties. The owner, Laura shared it in the Facebook group and I immediately received a text from my mom that said as soon as it is on the website she needs me to order it. Umm Ok, Calm Down Momma Mia. She asked twice more if it was on the website before it finally released. 🙂 So I ordered Freida, the epic paint splatters on the charcoal background. I also ordered Francis which is on a lighter blue background. These fabrics are French Terry which is a dream to sew with. I love the weight of it too. Not bulky or overly hot. It breathes well and it is cozy. The royal blue was from my stash and is scuba which snagged way to easily even on my cutting mat.

Happy Birthday Momma Mia!

The pattern I used this time around was the Cuddle Tunic from Ellie and Mac. I really liked the style of this shirt and the way it looked when color blocked. I wanted Momma Mia to have a fun long sleeve shirt with a giant pocket for her Birthday, so this one fit the bill perfectly. I paired it with some royal blue scuba fabric I had on hand. I wanted this one to have a little bit of weight to it so it would be warm for winter. I made the tunic length with regular long sleeves. I added the cowl neck to this pattern too. I sewed an XXL for the entire pattern.

Options for the Cuddle Tunic

Short, long, and bishop sleeve options

Bubble, loose-fit style

Tunic & Dress length

Large front pocket

Momma Mia’s Birthday outfit wouldn’t be complete without matching pants.

I sewed up the Good Vibes Joggers. I hadn’t sewn this pattern before either. I read through the directions and fit chart. Momma Mia has one of those shapes that drop several sizes between natural waist and hips which makes things a little difficult to fit, so this was really a test run. This round I sewed the XXL front waist graded to a large. The back was a straight large. Note to self: the front waist/belly area is a little large so next time, maybe a large front and medium back. The length is ok, but maybe I will remove 3/4 inch of length from the hip to knee area which will help with the baggy knees and eliminate the saggy ankle area. Since this was a test run, I didn’t add pockets or the contrast stripe. I used the elastic waist and the ankle cuffed pants length.

The pattern includes these options.

Zipper welt pocket option

Side stripe option

No trim pattern pages

Five length options noted in description

Two waistband options

Pattern Afflinks cost you nothing to use, but I receive a small commission for sharing my feelings on the pattern.

Stitchin’ Pretties where the fabric is quickly shipping and the customer service is awesome! They still have the buy 2 yards get one free deal happening!

5oo4 Head to Toe

This outfit began because Laura at Stitchin’ Pretties shared a flat photo of this gorgeous rib knit and then tempted me by saying the plaid DBP is the free coordinate if you buy two yards of the rib knit. I swooped in on that deal.

I knew I wanted a tunic length sweater and comfy pants so I set my sights on the Annabeth and the Candy pants. I have made both of these patterns multiple times and knew they were quick sews, are comfortable to wear and look great.

  • Raglan style sleeves
  • Solid or color-blocked options
  • Hidden front pocket or kangaroo pocket
  • Short or long sleeves that can be hemmed or finished with a band
  • Regular sweatshirt top length or tunic length with a lower hem in the back
  • Hem is finished with a band
  • Standard cuffs or a NEW thumbhole cuff option
  • Crewneck or cross over hood
  • Regular bodice or full bust adjustment (FBA) bodice
  • Sizes XXS – 5X

Tess is the name of the mustard rib knit. The texture is lovely as it has both smaller and wider ribs. I actually like this more than the solid narrow ribs as it adds interest. I appreciate that it is more gold than bold. The weight and texture of this fabric really is perfect. It sewed up so easily and really looks lovely. I am planning to spend a lot of time in this one during winter!

I was sure to get an extra yard of the plaid because I needed pants! Has anyone else noticed how many great plaids I have sewn from Stitchin’ Pretties? Let me remind you really quick!

OK Back to my new Candy Pants! This is the yoga style pants in the pattern with an encased elastic band. I shortened the overall length by 2 inches and will most likely hem this one more inch. I removed length from the thigh as well and the calf area. I even made a fair effort line up my plaid prints to avoid the dreaded “Ready to Wear” look. Since I have been sewing I can’t stand to have my plaids and stripes super off alignment.

  • Women’s sizes XXS – 5XL
  • Yoga Pants or Leggings
  • Solid or Colorblocked versions for both yoga pants and leggings
  • Optional side pockets (to be used with the colorblocked version)
  • 7 Lengths: 2″, 5″ and 7″ shorts, pedal pusher, capri, ankle and long
  • 4 rises: High, Mid, Low and Extra Low/Maternity
  • Regular waistband options include exposed elastic, regular knit, foldover yoga band and contour
  • Maternity waistband options include full overbelly panel, contour, regular knit and foldover yoga band
  • Full, half or no gusset options

I even used my scraps to make a matching pair of RAD lucky undies! Did you check out my video on how to make them? Just click on the photo below to check it out!!

Sydney Dress Surprise!

So the Sydney dress isn’t really a surprise, but this is the first time I have made one for myself!! Momma Mia has a dress or two from this pattern. There is also another one floating around my house – it is in pieces though, if I am truly honest with you. Anyhow, this time I was self sewing and I am thrilled that I did. Let’s just check out the end result.

Well, Hello There my friend!

So the first thing I want to say about this dress is that is it literally jam packed with options. I feel like 5oo4 is second to none in loading their patterns with options. I sewed the 4x FBA graded to the 5x with 3/4 sleeves. I did a 1.5 inch bicep adjustment. I used the knee length half circle skirt pattern shorted by 2 inches. I only removed length from the skirt and not the bodice. I find that even though I am shorter than the pattern is drafted for my side waist is the correct length. Apparently, I just have shorter than average legs. I should have shortened the dress a bit more for true knee length, but I am ok with this length. I, of course, added pockets to my skirt. When given a choice, always add the pockets. This pattern is drafted to have a lined bodice, but I get too hot for that so I used some pretty picot elastic to trim out my scoop neckline. Just measure your neckline opening, multiple that by 87% and that is your length to cut the elastic. I ordered said Picot from LaceandTrims on Etsy. I ordered 2 grab bags of pretty elastics. So many great colors and all were exceptional quality and usable lengths. My order even arrived 2 days before the tracking said it would so I was super thrilled. 5/5 stars – highly recommend.

Oh Picot, you look so pretty!

Speaking of options, here is the list from the website.

  • Regular and Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) pattern pieces are both included
  • Lift Up nursing option included
  • Multiple neckline options!
    • The front neckline can be Jewel, Scoop, or V-neck.
    • The back neckline can be High, Low scoop, or V-neck.
  • Fully Lined Bodice
  • Short, Elbow, Three-quarter, and Long sleeves
  • Multiple Skirt Options!
    • Half Circle – Peplum, Knee, Tea, and Maxi Lengths
    • Full Circle – Peplum and Knee Lengths
  • Sizes XXS-5XL

I am completely in love with this print. I gushed about it when I did an unboxing video on my business Facebook page. This is a beautiful print on Double Brushed Poly. It reminds me of an apron smock that my granny wore washing dishes. I don’t know why since they aren’t the same, but it makes me think of that. Lindy is from Stitchin’ Pretties and not only is it a beautiful fabric, but the Buy 2 yards, Get One Free sale is still on! PS – Laura, I need this is more colorways!

I bought this denim jacket RTW at Target. I can’t believe it actually fits and even buttons!

In case you didn’t know, this dress along with everything on the 5oo4 website is Buy one, Get one free!!! I picked up a few patterns I needed in my collection. What will you be grabbing? The sale ends in 2 days!! Don’t wait any longer! Afflink below!

Game Day Jersey – Hacked

 I was playing on Pinterest looking for some inspiration when I stumbled across this pretty little thing. This was a dress for sale, but when I clicked the link it took me to about 912 other inspirationdresses. Dumb! Anyhow, I knew whatever the price I wasn’t buying it because I could make it myself!

If you saw my Last Game Day Jersey top from Love Notions, you already know it doesn’t come with the button placket. Let’s get to hacking. I already knew the Game Day Jersey Dress would have the right lines for the the basic style of my inspo, but I needed to add a button placket. No worries gang, it is a faux placket on my dress!! No one in their right mind is willingly sewing all those button holes for no reason other than to look at. So a faux placket for me. Let’s talk about how you can get this same look. First- Measure the exact middle of your dress. When I was cutting my dress I was conscious of lining up my Center Front Bodice on a middle line in the pattern repeat. You can do the same if your plaid is straight. If your pattern is on the diagonal, fold your bodice in half and mark with pins.

Next– Decide how long you want your placket. I went with 13 inches as I didn’t want my placket to finish at the fullest part of my belly. 🙂 To determine the width of your placket, select buttons and measure them. Mine were about .5 inches, now double that number (1 inch in my case) and this will be the width of my placket when finished. We know

20200813_0954153685063358340181609.jpg
Auditioning options

that we want clean edges for the finish, so let’s double the number again (1 x 1 = 2) and add 1/2 inch for seam allowance since I am serging my edges. (2 + .5 = 2.5 inches). Now you can cut your placket fabric. Mine is 13 inches by 2.5 inches. Optional: You can add a piece of interfacing to your placket to make sewing your button easier.  I ironed on a piece 1 inch by 13 inches. Sew this together like a tube. One short end and along the long side. Then turn it. If you need help turning a tube, I have a video here.  There are a number of ways to do it. Pick your fave! 

Almost done! – Lay your placket in place and pin it so it won’t shift. Leave about .5 inches to hang out over the top edge so you won’t have to worry about finishing it. (It will be sewn in place when your add the Front Yoke.) I stitched along the long sides and the bottom. I added the X at the bottom for some extra detail. You can use your walking foot here to make things a little easier or use a contrasting thread for some extra color.

Finally- Now lay out your buttons how you wish. I placed mine 1.5 inches apart. I used 20200813_1034399031037354822035399.jpgmy sewing machine to sew them in place with a semi matching thread. This would also be fun using shaped buttons especially on a kid’s dress. Once you have your buttons sewn in place, finish your dress according to the directions. This placket will be the slowest part of the dress I promise! So what do you all think about my pinspired look??

This plaid print is a double brushed poly from Stitchin’ Pretties of course! It is called Adeline and it is perfect for fall! The beautiful coral is a ponte scrap also from SP! Did you know if you order 2 continuous yards of fabric, You will get a bonus yard of fabric to go with your order?? Yes indeed.

Now that you know how to make your own faux placket, let me show you my entire dress!

LN Game Day Jersey Dress Hack 4x-5x (2)
See the little raindrops falling on my head? It hasn’t rained in days, step out the door…RAIN!

I received another fantastic plaid print from Stitchin’ Pretties this month! Seriously, Fall is filled with all things plaid and you better get some in your closet ASAP! Here are two of my recent makes.

Ok Back to the Game Day Dress. This time I made the Dress length which is actually pretty fabulous! I was in the market for some longer comfy dresses to lounge around the house in and this fits the bill perfectly. I am so stoked to wear my fancy new frock!

This animal print version is the top length with 3/4 sleeves. I did the arm cuffs and the hemmed neckline and bottom edge. I adore it! Such a fun top.
