Coraline Cami & Primrose Panties

Bella Sunshine Designs is back!! Actually, they have always been here, Melissa was just busying growing a baby and building her dream home! This a double pattern release week and perfect for Valentine’s Day!! I know a lot of PDF companies right now are enticing us with super skimpy sexy patterns, but I am all about being comfortable 365 days a year! My requirements are fairly simple. I need my lady bits covered and everything in its place. So Bella Sunshine Designs gave us these great patterns.

The Coraline Cami and the Primrose Panty.

First, we will talk about the Coraline Cami. I don’t like camis. I rarely wear camis. I hate when my bra strap shows and my top stitching always looks messy. So I don’t make them. I said this exact same thing when the tester call came out, and Danielle said to me, “Practice makes perfect.” So I made a cami. I like the cami. I tucked my bra straps in my bra. My top stitching looks neat. Not too shabby…. if I say so myself.

I choose to make a tunic length top, which is perfect for running around the house in. I think it would also work well with a cardigan over leggings. I like when my clothes can be wore more than one way!

This pattern comes in sizes from Doll to Ladies 30 with an optional FBA. I love that BSD includes that and saves me the trouble of doing it myself.

This was my first time using fold over elastic and it honestly was much easier and neater to sew than bands. I have ordered several colors now and can’t wait to use them up!

I have dreaded making panties for as long as I have been sewing. I think it mostly because I sew with a lot of synthetic fabrics and those aren’t the best for panties. I rarely have cotton lycra on hand and it is typically a little more expensive, but it is idea for sewing the guesset AKA the crotch area. I was able to score some great deals on CL from Ksews. Which is also where I picked up this pineapple print. The pineapple fabric is a jersey blend which is actually quiet comfy and has decent recovery. I have wore both the cami and the panties several times without issue.

I love that the Primrose comes with 2 rise options as well as 2 options for the cut at the leg. I choose the higher option for both of these. You can also choose to make bands instead of using the Fold Over Elastic, but I wanted my set to match so I went with the FOE. Another great thing about these panties are all the seams are hidden and they come together quickly and neatly!

Stella

I know you guys have heard all the rumors, “The rompers are coming! The rompers are coming!” Well, The Rompers are here…just not on my blog…because I prefer separates! I made a mix of tops and bottoms and they all come with the 5oo4 Stella ROMPER pattern! So here we go…

First up – Flounce Top with optional straps! What is not to love about this??

5oo4 Stella 5x 9

This is my favorite, I love animal prints!! I got this one from Fabric.com last year in a clearance sale. 🙂

Next up – cami top, baby! I think a lot of people can relate to wearing cami tops. I love them under tops all year long. For an extra layer in fall; for extra warmth in winter. Spring and Summer – they are great when the weatherman can’t decide how to dress. The best part of making your own, choosing the length! I like my shirts long. 🙂 This cami is long…I like this cami! I am wearing it as I type.

This fabric is Cotton Lycra which I scored in someone’s major destash! Her loss, My gain!

Next item on my list…Shorts!!! Say, What? Yep, Shorts! Shorts with amazing pockets!

5oo4 Stella 5x 12

These awesome shorts are made with scuba from Iamsewblessed. Ms. Rosa sent me these roses as a sample when I asked what the heck does Scuba feel like and what would I make with it? 🙂 Shorts, make all the shorts! Make shorts with pockets.

I would buy this pattern simply because there are pockets in the shorts and they look good!!! I hemmed my shorts, but you can band them if you prefer.

After all this sewing, I am ready to relax… in.. my.. brand.. new.. PJs!!! (insert your best Price is Right voice here)

Super Soft, Ultra Comfy sleep set! If I wasn’t as pale as a ghost, I would be blending in with this giant tree.  This camo print also came from Ms. Rosa.

So let’s talk details… Stolen right from the 5oo4 website…because there a lot of great details! Can you believe I didn’t even sew all the options???

The Stella is a women’s romper pattern that can be made as a one-piece outfit or as a separate tank and shorts. This is a PDF sewing pattern, not a finished product.
