Today, I am sharing my latest Luna, which was a Christmas gift for Momma Mia. Momma Mia likes skirts and loves to wear clothes that don’t look like any of her friends. I can understand that, I feel the exact same way. My biggest nightmare would be showing up somewhere and someone is wearing the same shirt as me…no thanks! She also recently mentioned, she likes showing up wearing a new garment when she sees them. Ok, Momma, hint taken!

The included options:

  • 2 lengths – “mini” (mid-thigh) and knee length
  • Fabric waistband that can be made with or without elastic.
  • Option for exposed elastic waistband
  • 3 cutting options – double fold, single fold (give two side seams), single layer (perfect for colorblocking!)
  • Finishing options – hem, bias tape, or FOE
  • sizes XXS-5X

Luna Promo XXL Jessie Top (2)

I chose the knee length hemmed version again and it fits perfectly on the 2 yard cut of fabric. This Liverpool floral print was picked up at Zink’s in Berlin with the intention of the Luna Skirt. I used the fold over waistband and slid an elastic through to help hold it in place. I love how Liverpool fabric has enough structure to create the perfect twirl effect! While taking these photos, the wind kept catching the fabric and creating a lovely look. I am sad my pictures had the weird shadow, lesson learned…Camera is still fairly new and I am still learning so bear with me.

Luna Promo XXL Jessie Top (3)

I couldn’t sew Momma Mia this pretty floral skirt without a matching shirt, especially when she has been asking for solid tops. This is the Jessie top and Momma Mia’s favorite. You have seen it many times here so I won’t talk you to death about it. This is the tunic length so she can also wear it was jeans or leggings. I love versatile clothing.  This fabric is double brushed poly from my stash. I am pretty sure it came from Sly Fox Fabrics.

Merry Christmas Momma Mia, I hope you love it!

A little bit of Luna… Mambo Style!

Surprise! Did you think we were finished with Mambo No. 5 out of 4 style? Nope, we have one more to go! The Luna… I know. I know. Luna wasn’t one of Mambo’s girls, but she plays nice with the Mambo girls! Also she is free and fast! Momma Mia got in on the Luna action and got her very first full circle skirt!

Since I have just made Momma Mia a Royal Blue double brushed poly Jessie dress, I knew we were about to take advantage of it! The DBP is a perfect match for the blue in the Chevron Liverpool I had on hand. Both fabrics are from Stitchin’ Pretties. The amazing Black and Blue Chevron isn’t in stock right now, but they have tons of other great things! Plus, today is new release day, so who knows what will stock! Stitchin’ Pretties has a one day turn around time and you will have your amazing fabric in no time flat! I love the quality of the fabric I have always gotten there!
IMG_0237
I sewed the knee length skirt for Momma Mia and cut on the double fold so there are no side seams. I used the Liverpool fabric to make her waistband as well. For the edge finish…miles of hemming. That is how it is with circle skirts. I don’t mind hemming Liverpool fabric though as it has a nice weight and doesn’t fight me! Here is the full info on the options.

The included options:
  • 2 lengths – “mini” (mid-thigh) and knee length
  • Fabric waistband that can be made with or without elastic.

  • Finishing options – hem, bias tape, or FOE

You may be confused as to why I am sharing the Luna during Mambo week, but it is for good reason! Luna fits all the mix and match options from the Mambo skirts. The pockets, the waistbands, and the suspenders! Yes, You have endless possibilities in the skirt world!

Camilla Tunic

The Camilla Top and Dress from 5 out of 4 is back on my blog and I am still super in love with it.  Each time I sew this one up, it gets better! This is my third one and I can finally do it without the directions so I am counting that as a win.

5oo4 Camilla 4xFBA 5x (3) - Copy

I decided on this pattern because I had this stunning fabric from Stitchin’ Pretties! This fabric is an ITY and here is your link.  No joke, I have been drooling over it since it came out and finally ordered it! When it arrived, it was even more beautiful in person! I love ITY fabric because it is nice and smooth and always feels cool. So I sent a picture of my fabric to the Sarcastic Sewist and asked what I should make. She suggested Camilla right away! Lucky for me, I already had it printed and ready to use. This is also when I realized I hadn’t even blogged about my second Camilla. Stay tuned, it is coming.

5oo4 Camilla 4xFBA 5x (4) - Copy

I chose the ¾ sleeve length tunic. I sewed a 4x at the bust to a 5x. This pattern doesn’t have the included FBA which the newer 5oo4 patterns have. My tunic sewed up fairly quickly because at this point, I kinda know what I am doing. I also just put some small pleats at the cowl neck instead pinning at the marked spots which was a bit fiddly the first time. It may not even been quicker, it just doesn’t mess with my blood pressure. Once you have the cowl neck sorted it is all smooth sailing. A few passes with the serger and all is well.

5oo4 Camilla 4xFBA 5x (1) - Copy

Here is the list of all the included options with this pattern. 5 out of 4 patterns is sort of amazing because they always give me options, I don’t know I need. I actually wish I has enough of this fabric to make a swing dress. That would have been super pretty.

Agility Tank and Dress

Did you know that one of 5 out of 4’s most popular patterns is the Agility Tank? Did you know the Agility tank just expanded its size range? Yep, now it comes in sizes up to 5x which matches the size range of newer 5 out of 4 designs.

5004 Agility 4x graded to 5x dress (1)

For testing, I made my first ever sports bra. I have only purchased one sports bra in my entire adult life and that was because I needed a racer back to wear with a shirt on my blog. I hated it BTW. I don’t like sports bras for general everyday wear because I require a lot of support in the bust area. I ordered some mesh to sew into my bra, but as it turns out all mesh is not created equal. The mesh I received was more of a mesh overlay compared to a supportive mesh even though it was labeled power mesh. If you order mesh for sports bra use, please make sure it is the sturdy stuff.

5004 Agility 4x graded to 5x dress (3)

So let’s talk about my tank dress with built in bra. I used a heavier cotton lycra for the bra portion and added the clear elastic through the straps and neckband as the pattern recommended. This did help somewhat with support, but again a strong power mesh would have helped more. I also did a little height adjusting. I removed 1 inch from the back racer before attaching the back T to the back bra strap. I also removed 1 inch from the front straps to help hold things up and in. My overlay dress fabric it a rayon spandex, I believe. I picked this up on a garage sale table at my quilt guild meeting last month, but I know it is from Joann’s because I have used it before! I loved it then and now. It is super soft, like the softest fabric ever and the colors are so vibrant! Loving that my cone flowers and phlox are blooming!

5004 Agility 4x graded to 5x dress (2)

I made the 4x graded to a 5x as usual with 5 out of 4 patterns. I chose to make the Racer T back style but you could make the strappy option if you prefer. I also choose to make a dress, but you could do just a bra option or a top length. I removed 2 inches from the skirt to adjust for my height. It is still a little longer than the designer intended as it should hit mid knee. I just did a regular hem, but you could choose bands or drawstrings. So many options. I always say that is why I love 5 out of 4.

5004 Agility 4x graded to 5x dress (4)

So here are all the options…

THE WOMEN’S AGILITY TANK INCLUDES:

  • T-back sports bra
  • Strappy back sports bra
  • T-back or strappy back overlay tank with a drawstring or banded hem
  • T-back or strappy back tankini overlay (lower cut sides, so skin shows beneath bra)
  • T-back or strappy back overlay dress
  • Every option can be made with nursing access!
  • Maternity pattern pieces

While putting together this tank, I made a video for my readers. This time I am showing you how to use the Stitch in the Ditch foot to neatly hide top stitching lines. Since I am doing this on a sports bra, there isn’t a lot of room to do top stitching so I decided I wanted to hide my stitches. I used a straight stitch slightly lengthen to do this. Here is the embedded clip.

Thanks for watching!

Hazel Top, Tunic, and Dress

BSD Hazel 24 FBA

Bella Sunshine Designs is back and this pattern is exceptional. I love it so much! I made two during testing and they are both perfect! I love when that happens. I made my dress version first because I wanted to wear it to a quilt show the next day. I didn’t quite make that dead line, but I finished that afternoon. I then immediately began a second one.

As always Bella Sunshine Designs is size inclusive. This means her sizes go up to a Women’s size 30 which is an upper bust and hip of 59.75 inches. This pattern comes in top, tunic, and knee length dress options to fit all of your needs. There are also multiple sleeve lengths available.

Typically, with most patterns I require a bicep adjustment, but not this pattern. This is a very roomy Dolman, even after the drawstrings are added, I still have a great flutter effect. Bonus for me because now it is even quicker to make! Dolmans always sew up sew quickly since the sleeves are cut out with the bodice. Perfect for the last minutes sewist!

First up: The Dress.

I used this stunning floral print from Sly Fox Fabrics to make my Hazel dress. They have a 30% off sale happening right now! This fabric is a very lightweight Rayon Spandex. With my height adjustment, I was able to squeeze this out of a two yard cut of fabric. I did the lower cut neckline which is pretty, but I little wider than I love. Perhaps, if I used something a little sturdier for the band it would have pulled in a bit. I used the matching fabric for the drawstrings. These I sewed narrow tubes, and turned them with a tube turner to make them easy. A bodkin made threading the tubes through the channels easy as well.

BSD Hazel 24-28 (8)

Next up: The Shirt.

I have been hoarding this stars and stripes, named Becky, print from Stitchin’ Pretties since early summer I believe. This is also a Rayon Spandex, but a heavier one than the floral print. I would compare the weight and feel to a jersey. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to make with it, until now! I know this would be perfect for a Hazel tunic. I planned to pair this tunic with dark washed jeans for a neater look.

Sheila Top

5 out of 4 has continued with their basics line. The next pattern is Sheila. Sheila is a top or dress depending on which you prefer. I sewed the dress version which turned out lovely. I love that even though this is a basic pattern it still has a few options, one of which is a full bust adjustment. Trust me, if you need one, it really is a game changer in the look and fit of your clothing. 
Sheila Everday Tee and Dress Size 4xl FBA.jpg
 
So let’s run through the options first. 
  • Regular front bodice OR FBA (Full Bust Adjustment) front bodice
  • Two Hem lengths: top or dress
  • Three Sleeve Lengths: short, 3/4 or long
  • Sizes XXS – 5XL

5oo4 Sheila Everyday Fitted Tee.Dress 4x FBA-5x (3)

I sewed up the dress length with a height adjustment for my 5’1 self. I used the 4x bust with the included FBA. I graded out to the 5x waist and hips. I used the 3/4 sleeves for my dress as this fabric is heavier in weight and these colors are putting me in a Fall frame of mine.
5oo4 Sheila Everyday Fitted Tee.Dress 4x FBA-5x (5)
So let’s talk about my fabric. I dug deep into my stash to get this fabric. This is a heavier weight knit, possibly an ITY. I ordered it last year from I am Sew Blessed. I love that this fabric is heavy enough that it doesn’t blow up in the wind, it isn’t see through, and is smooths things out a bit. All 3 things are good to have when making a more fitted dress.

Sleeve Hack Series #1 – Gathered Sleeves

BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (2)
Maggie has gotten a lot of love on my blog, but Melissa, the designer has been off living her best life for awhile. Good news though, she is back and drafting up a storm. I pulled out one of my most used Bella Sunshine Designs patterns for this series. A few months ago, I discovered that I really like tops with interesting sleeve details. I am working on putting together a series of shirt sleeve hacks to run right here, on my blog. Today, I am introducing you to my first one.
BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (7)
Let’s start with a reminder of the Maggie pattern. Maggie comes in a top, tunic, and dress lengths. I typically cut the tunic length as I prefer my shirts a little big longer. It comes with an included Full Bust Adjustment. There are 3 neckline options as well as 3 sleeve lengths! This version is a tunic, adjusted sleeves with a scoop neckline and pairs perfectly with leggings. I sewed a 24 bust graded to a 28 waist. Bella Sunshine Designs includes sizing up to 30.
BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (1)
Here are some of my previous Maggies.
BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (5)
This fabric is a beautiful new release from Amelia Lane Designs. It is called Dulce and is on new sale as it debuts. It is a double brushed poly and the colors are absolutely beautiful. You can pick the fabric up here. ALD has great quality fabrics and a wide variety of fabric bases. Also, super fast shipping, which is what is very important to me as a customer.
BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (3)
Maggie sews up quickly, but since this is the kick off to my Sleeve Hack Series, we are switching it up a bit. For starters, we are creating a gathered sleeve. Basically, I am going to show you how to use elastic to draw your sleeve up and create a new look. Sometimes, even simple changes make for a big impact.  For this top, I printed the 3/4 sleeve length even though I only planned to do about an elbow length sleeve. The reason I went ahead and printed the extra length is so I didn’t have to redraft any of the arm even though I wanted a longer than short length. I measured about 2.5 inches down from the length of the short sleeve. I knew that adding the elastic would draw the sleeve up a bit and I didn’t want the sleeves to be too short.  As always with Bella Sunshine Designs, I needed a Full Bicep Adjustment. I have talked about them many times on my blog and have a little video here if you aren’t sure how to do them.
BSD Maggie Sleeve Hack Series 1 (6)
Another new thing I am trying for my blog is more videos!! I am by no means a professional, but I think this gives you a better idea of what you should do. I think a lot of the time just seeing what is happening is helpful. I have recently created a Youtube Channel for my sewing stuff so feel free to like and follow it so you don’t miss any uploads.

Easy Tee – Momma Mia and Me version

Have you made the Easy Tee yet? This pattern comes jam packed with options! I am not kidding. These are the 7th and 8th ones I have made and I still haven’t made any repeats. This pattern really is a whole lotta bang for your pattern buck! Here is a link if that is all you need to know. Keep reading if you want all the details.
Easy Tee Promo SP (3)
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!
Easy Tee Promo SP (4)
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.
Easy Tee Promo SP (1)
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.
Easy Tee Promo SP (5)
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!
Easy Tee Promo SP (2)
While I have your attention here, I want to share with you my collection of Easy Tees! Here is a mini collage of pretty things! I wear at least one Easy Tee per week. If you aren’t, what the heck are you waiting for?? Dang I almost forgot to mention the $th of July sale is happening right now and will save you an extra 30% on all 5oo4 patterns! Hurry up and check them out!

Edgy Top – Updated

So George and Ginger is a new name around here! I typically take a very hard stand against not supporting designers who aren’t designing in my size range. I now know that they are working pretty steadily at updating patterns in the larger size range, now going up to 5x. I tip toed over to the group because my cousin had requested a one shoulder top that resembled the way so many fabric companies drape their display mannequins. So I gave in, spent the money on a pattern that wasn’t in my size and sewed up the pattern she wanted.

She loved her new top and it was perfect for the Memorial Day festivities she planned to attend in DC. I bet this fabric looks familiar. This is Liberty Belle and it is a double brushed poly from Sly Fox Fabrics! I am linking you directly to Sly Fox Fabrics because this fabric is already sold out! Trust me, it is that fabulous! I used it recently to make my Easy Tee 5.0 when the fabric released! I also sewed up a Maxi Length Virginia for another customer out of the fabric! 

So about 2 days later, there was a tester call to update the pattern and extend the size range! I decided to step out of my comfort zone and sign up!

Edgy Top G&G 5x Sequoia Bond (15) - Copy

I choose to make the sleeveless version with the ruffle, which is the same style that I made above! The pattern sewed up quickly and easily both times. I used double brushed poly scraps to create this top and even though it was a test, it turned out 100% wearable! All the pattern pieces received an upgrade and update when the size range expanded. To me, most notable, is there is now a front and a back piece instead of it being the same. The Edgy Top included 4 different lengths of the single sleeve and you have the option to sew it with or without the ruffle! Let’s talk about the ruffle now!

Edgy Top G&G 5x Sequoia Bond (16) - Copy

On both tops, I chose to do a rolled hem! I knew I was most certainly not turning it under and hemming the edge, but I did want it finished. I decided the rolled hem was just the trick. I even made a quick Youtube video on how to do it. This was my first ever Youtube video, but I think it is helpful. Come check my channel out, follow me and give me some love! Here is the video.

Edgy Top G&G 5x Sequoia Bond (13) - Copy

 I sewed a 5x for this pattern, but blended from the bust curve to the hip to remove some of the hourglass like shape of the top. I knew I wouldn’t love it being super clingy to my rounded middle. I am now happy with the overall look. For both tops, I inserted a strip of elastic to help hold the top up. I love Brushed Poly, but strength isn’t its strongest suit! Just like when you use it to make bottoms, you have to support the waistband with something else.

Edgy Top G&G 5x Sequoia Bond (17) - Copy

Let’s talk about the fabric here. Both prints are double brushed poly and like said before I only used scraps! These dots are from Stitchin’ Pretties and no longer listed. The floral paisley fabric was a 1 cut piece from Sew Blessed also no longer available. Both of these companies have loads of other great brushed poly fabrics you could use. These two fabrics work together because the colors are a spot on match and the scale is different! #Breakallthedamnrules

Talia Twist Top

Talia Twist Top by Rebecca Page is a great addition to any closet. This is one of the newer patterns from Rebecca Page. It is a very good play off those dresses that keep popping up in my newsfeed from Zulily and other fast fashion sites. The reason this is better…You custom fit your body. Nothing makes me feel better than great fitting clothing! As a bonus, no one will be wearing the exact same item as you! You pick the prints, colors, and options!!

RP Talia 5x FBA (6) - Copy

This was a super easy sew and not at all a fabric hog. I created my top with just over a yard of fabric. The front bodice is a double layer to enclose the seams.  I used the 5x pattern and did a full bust adjustment. The FBA directions were a FREE download from the website and are easy to follow and give great results. I added 2 inches to my bust and actually wish I would have added just a bit of length as well. When I raise my arms, my top tends to drift upwards just a little. This also may be because I used French Terry instead of a more stretchy knit like Double Brushed Poly. I think I will try this top in a less stable knit before adding length. Another thing I love about this top, all of the seams are enclosed. I feel like that is something Rebecca Page is very mindful of. Neat finishes are always a bonus and the more I sew her patterns, the more I appreciate them!

RP Talia 5x FBA (5) - Copy

Speaking of French Terry, I picked this one up from Stitchin’ Pretties! When I ordered it, I thought I would be making a pair of shorts, but this is where I ended up and I am not at all mad about it. I love that French Terry is a little bit muted or softer in its tones. I am usually all bright and bold colors, but sometimes, I just want to be calm.  French Terry is calm. This is more of a dark charcoal gray then a black because of the way French terry looks. The name of this FT is Delilah. Here is the link. I love the great selection at Stitchin’ Pretties, but especially love their lightning fast shipping! Today actually marks the one-year anniversary of SP so join the Facebook group to follow all of the fun!

RP Talia 5x FBA (7) - Copy

The Talia comes with a partner pattern. That means you can bundle it with a dress or tank as the bottom layer. This dress was drafted to be a perfect complement to the twist top. It features two length options and thin straps that can be made easily with Fold Over Elastic. It would also make the perfect night dress or tunic to layer when the weather is cold. I love when I can use a pattern a little different than its actual purpose because it allows more bang for my buck!

The Talia Twist Top Options include three sleeve lengths – short, three-quarter, and long

I am wearing the short sleeves here.

Talia Tunic and Dress Options include – Tunic and Dress Lengths

I am wearing a tank top I already had on hand.

These patterns are sizes up to 5x.
