Don’t mind me, I am just over here celebrating another great Love Notions pattern being updated to more inclusive sizing. The Resolution bottoms come with several style options so you can have the proper comfy pants for all occasions. Sizing now includes thru 59.5 inch hip. Thank you Love Notions for working on being more inclusive!
I didn’t think I needed another knit pant pattern, but it turns out I was wrong. *GASP* I really love the fit of these. I made a mock up prior to cutting my Liverpool fabric. I needed to make a bit of a length adjustment which is not unusual for me. Otherwise, my pants are exactly as drafted. My inseam is 27 inches which means I always have to adjust the length of pants. This pattern includes 5 different fit options. So now your toughest choice will be which one to make first.
Bootcut yoga pants
Straight cut yoga pants
I started with making the straight leg yoga pant with the contoured waistband. Plus the large pockets because why wouldn’t you add pockets? I wanted some comfy black pants which looked dressy, but are super comfortable. I am a huge fan of secret pajamas and this is 100% on point! My fabric is a solid black Liverpool that I picked up at Hobby Lobby not too long ago. I lucked out and there was just over two yard of fabric on the bolt which is perfect for a pair of pants with large pockets.
As I am typing this up, I am washing fabric from my next pair. I have a glorious Brushed Jacquard print from Stitchin’ Pretties in the washer. I am about to sew up the coziest joggers ever and can’t wait to put them on. This will be my first time working with Jacquard and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and show them off.

So it wasn’t too long ago that Love Notions expanded that size chart, and I have been so grateful for that. I have already added quite a few pieces to my and my mom’s closets. Today I wanted to tell you about some of my faves while they are on sale!
I love the overall fit of this dress! I really appreciate that it is not too low in the neckline or underarms. I love that is doesn’t use a ton of fabric even though it is a maxi. This one sews up quickly and it perfect for the bold prints I love to wear. Fabric is from Stitchin’ Pretties.
OK friends! It is time I tell you a little secret! I CAN NOT sew a pretty V-neck if my life depended on it. The Vivace Dolman has some magic happening and this neckline is all sorts of amazing! I love the quick sew of a Dolman and I wear this one at least one time a week. 🙂 All fabric is from Stitchin’ Pretties.
I can not resist a nice peplum style top! I really can’t! I adore them and wear them ALL THE TIME!! This pattern is jam packed with options and can literally work for any occasion! Fabric is from Stitchin’ Pretties and Surge.
This pattern is rated for confident beginners.
Four top views:
A- gathered skirt peplum style with scoop neck
B- waterfall skirt with v-neck
C- classic tee with scoop neck
D- gathered inverted with v-neck
Two dress views: B & D
Six sleeve options to mix and match:
short with flounce
A full bust piece is also included for ladies with a 4-6″ high bust to full bust difference– no need to do a FBA! The Forte is fitted at the bust with plenty of ease in the waist and hips.
In case you didn’t know, The Tessa bodice will mash up with all the Sybil skirts!!! This red dress is one of Momma Mia’s bolder dresses, but she wears it alot! This pattern has been added to the expanded size range yet, but Tami plans to have all the patterns updated by the end of 2021! Fabric is from Stitchin’ Pretties.
**The dress features a bateau or scoop neckline, optional yoke detail and five sleeve lengths: sleeveless, short, elbow, 3/4 and long. Two hem lengths are also included- above knee and shin. Bonus- the bodice part of the pattern can also be easily mashed with the Sybil Skirt Collection.
**Meant for knit fabrics, the Sybil comes with seven variations: pencil, a-line, swing, drop yoke with swing, gored, asymmetrical wrap and pleated. All versions, with the exception of the drop yoke, also have knee and midi length options as well as inseam pockets.

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a good week so far, getting some sewing time in and most importantly, I hope you are healthy! Welcome to my stop on the Spring Fling Blog Tour! The theme of this blog tour is my favorite spring or summer sewing patterns. We could pick anything we wanted to share. I decided I wanted to make a dress from this adorable light plum and white mini dot printed double brushed poly fabric. I picked it up from Surge Fabrics a few weeks ago, but now it has sold out. Don’t worry, there are still tons of fabric options over at Surge!
Without much thought, I knew I was going to make the Willow Wrap Dress from Love Notions. I loved it when I first noticed it and was thrilled it was being offered in LN’s new expanded size chart. I decided to choose the bodice view with more front coverage. A lot of times, cross front bodices expose a bit more of the girls than I wish to share with everyone, so I was happy to see this one offered options for more or less coverage. I used the full bust pattern pieces. I used the gathered side option, elbow length sleeves and the longer skirt. I didn’t not adjust the skirt length for my height as I wanted my skirt to hit just below my knees.
This wasn’t a super quick sew, but it went together nicely and fit well! This pattern has 9 pieces and a mile of hemming, but it is worth it. This dress is pretty, easy to wear, and will have you feeling just a bit dressy for any party! You can sew it with or without the flutter at the cross front or choose one of the shorter length options.
This dress will be perfect for a spring afternoon, Easter Sunday, or dinner with friends, but we are under lock down here in Ohio. So for the foreseeable future, you will be treated to photos taken without my photographer. 😦 Whomp. Whomp. Anyhow, I figured out how to use the timer on my camera and brought all of you into my sewing space! My happy place! Welcome. This next photo looks like I am dancing!
So I have some exciting news!! Love Notions has generously offered to donate a pattern to one lucky reader who leaves a comment below! Please leave me a message to be entered to win a free pattern! I will leave comments open until Saturday early morning and then pick a winner through a random number generator! Good Luck!
