I haven’t been blogging much or even sewing. I have been mostly just hanging out, geocaching and keeping a low profile. I have made Momma Mia several clothing items though. She has requested some long sleeve shirts for summer as she needs to avoid the sun. No problem, I can do that. Before I even began sewing, I wanted to look at the best fabric for the job. I ordered her a few cotton lycra fabrics and this beautiful CVC Jersey fabric. CVC is an antimicrobial fabric. This means the fabric offers protection against bacteria, mold, mildew, and other yucky microbes. This fabric is a cotton poly blend, but it is cool like cotton. This fabric/color is called Suzanne.
I decided to make Momma a Going Home Sweater from Ellie and Mac. A super quick raglan sleeve pattern. It comes with these options.
Three sleeve options
Cowl or neckband option
Shirt, tunic or dress length options
I made her the tunic length, neckband option, and long sleeves. I used thumb hole cuffs from another pattern to create this top.
If you like this pattern it is available in sizes through 4x plus is it ON SALE 50% off!!
While you are at it, go check out this fabric and so many other great ones. Stitchin’ Pretties still has their “Buy 2 continuous yards of fabric, get a bonus yard of something else free.” Momma Mia likes this fabric because it is lightweight and not too hot. We have already ordered the other two colors that were in stock.
