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!

The Easy Tee is one of my favorite and most used patterns. Most recently, I made a Momma Mia and Me set. She wanted a dress and I wanted a tunic. Since both lengths, as well as two others, are included with this pattern. We have already established #Whatmommawantsmommagets so I made the matching pair!

I used a summery print that is coming soon to Stitchin’ Pretties to make our garments. It is a lightweight and drapey knit and oh so pretty for summer. We have both worn our items since taking these photos and received compliments. It always feels good when someone compliments what you are wearing when you have made it. Even though this is a sneak peek at some upcoming Stitchin’ Pretties fabric, they have loads of beautiful prints right now! Laura is a speed racer when it comes to packing and shipping boxes. I love that she always gets them out the door for next day shipping! Shop here.

Now let’s talk about this tunic! I choose the tunic length and graded a 4x to a 5x. I love having comfy shirts around so I can just toss them over leggings and go on with my day. This is basically my go to wardrobe on the weekends and evenings. At home, I love to relax. I chose the scoop neck with the short sleeve option. I did a 1.5 inch bicep adjustment.

Momma Mia wanted a summer dress, Momma Mia always wants a dress. She opted for the shorter of the 2 dress lengths. She wanted 3/4 sleeves, pockets and the crew neck line. She also likes to have the extra fullness at the bottom so I rarely grade back in for her smaller hips. This dress is a XL graded to a XXl back in to a XL. The best part of sewing custom clothing is you always get exactly what you want!
