CKC Tierney's

When I saw this pattern tester call, I REALLY liked the top. I loved the detail on the sleeves. I liked the optional elbow patches. I liked the color blocking options, and I loved that the tee shirt could be all of these things... or just a basic tee, if that's what you need.

This is CKC Tierney's!

I got this pretty sweater knit from a Knitpop scrap pack a few weeks ago. I already made myself something using it. You can see that here. I had enough of my scrap pieces left to make my sister something too. What is better than trying a new pattern?? Almost nothing. So I used up the rest of my nice sweater fabrics to make my sister a coordinating top!

According to her measurements, she fits into a size small. It is perfect on her. I used the color blocked bodice options, and the color blocked the sleeve detail. Her top is the "tunic" length. As you can see, it would be long enough to wear with leggings, if she chooses to do that!

Cutting the Pieces

After I cut all of the pieces, I was super careful to keep everything together so that I didn't mix anything up! If you're doing the sleeve detail, you'll have several little sleeve pieces, and you want to keep them in order! I would recommend not cutting them out until you are ready to start sewing. Or just be super careful with them! 😜

Using Scraps:

I mentioned that I used scraps from another project to sew this. This pattern is the perfect scrap-busting project! You've got some super small pieces (the top bodice, and sleeve detail pieces) that will be perfect for using up that beautiful tiny piece of fabric that you can't stand the thought of throwing away. And since the bottom bodice is shorter than a typical tee shirt pattern, you don't need quite as much fabric for it either. The whole project could be made using scraps!

The Pattern:

  • Options to sew the bodice with color blocking at the top or solid top
  • Options to sew the sleeves with detail color blocking at the bottom or solid sleeves
  • Options to sew elbow patches
  • Different Length options - do you want a top, tunic, or dress?
  • Optional Hood with drawstring
  • PERFECT for scrap busting.
  • On sale this week only!

Free and Easy... Sewing the Agnes by Halla!

I love trying new things when it comes to sewing. I love learning new techniques, how to do things different ways, and figuring things out. For the most part, I also enjoy trying new-to-me pattern designers.

This was my first ever pattern by Halla - the AGNES. Yep, I downloaded it a long time ago when it released, but this was my first time ever making it! I downloaded it with intentions of trying it because it was so popular. It may have been popular because it's a FREE pattern (you can get the code to download it in the Halla Facebook Group), or it may have been really popular because it's FREE and REALLY AWESOME. This blog tour gave me a chance to find out for myself!

I participated in this blog tour put together by Kate of Sewing from Scratch... the idea is that we would all sew the same pattern, but make it our own. If we love it as is, we sew it as is. If we want a cute bow (GwenπŸ˜‰), we add a cute bow, if we want to make all the adjustments to get our perfect fit (Sequoi…

This is the new Harmony Blouse

This pattern has three neckline options and two hem lengths. There are also several sleeve lengths available for this.  I sewed two of the neckline options during testing. View A has a cute woven detail that ties in the front. View B has a woven detail with little pleats, and a placket that buttons in the front. View C is made with knit fabric, but has a woven bias tape to finish the neckline. This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics, with the exception of the …
