The Harmony by Wardrobe by Me

Wardrobe my Me is one of my favorite pattern companies to test for. I always love the result, and the style of the patterns is really what draws me in. They are really beautiful and always end up being favorites for me. The new release is no different from the others... they're already on repeat in my wardrobe! 😍

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 front detail and the bias tape. There are instructions included in the pattern for folding and making your own bias tape. 

One length of the pattern is hip length and the other is 4" longer. There is a cap sleeve piece and regular fitted sleeve pieces for short, 3/4 length and long sleeves. 


The top is a bit fitted at the bust and flares out at the waist and hips. It has a very flattering shape. It's a very easy sew, and surprisingly quick, even with the woven detail on the front!

View A:

This is my top, View A. I made it from a scrap piece of fabric I got a while ago in a scrap box. The top really doesn't require much fabric. It's an easy sew, and very cute! I also used a scrap of woven for the neckline detail (from a different dress I made last year). I love the colors together!

View B:

My second top in testing was view B! I hesitated to make view B, because I thought it looked complicated. But then I remembered that I've never had a bad experience with any WBM pattern, or their instructions, so I went for it! I'm super happy I did, because I think it's my favorite of the two I made!! πŸ’“ This one has a little pleats on each side of the front woven detail and a button placket in the center front. I actually used store bought bias tape for this one since I chose a solid white for the button placket, and I already had white double fold bias tape on hand. I really enjoyed sewing this!



View C:

This is the only version  I have not made yet! It doesn't have the woven detail in the front - it's just more of a basic shirt, but the neckline is finished with bias tape like the others!  It's simple, and would be very quick to make! I'm looking forward to trying it out with fabric that does not have the necessary recovery for a regular neckband. It'll be a nice pattern to have in my collection for that, for sure! 

The Sleeves:

Two sleeve pieces are included in this pattern. There is the cap sleeve, which I used for both of my shirts, and there is the regular fitted sleeve that has several length options. I'll use the other sleeve piece for when the weather cools off! πŸ˜‰



Fabric:

The pattern is drafted for knit fabrics. You'll want a small piece of woven fabric for the front detail and the bias tape. I used DBP for both of my tops. The woven detail on both was made from 100% cotton.

The pattern is currently on sale! 😍 Run check it out! It has many options, making it the perfect addition to your pattern stash!!

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…

Fun, Fast, and Free - Fresh Looks for Summer!

When I first saw the information about the "Boys in Summer" Blog Tour hosted by Made for Little Gents, I knew I wanted to participate! My boys are the reason I started sewing! I HAD to participate.

But, what would I sew? I contemplated what I might make for a couple of weeks, and then it hit me... it would be super fun to highlight a couple of great freebies! EVERYONE loves free stuff. Free patterns are a great way to try a new designer out before making a purchase, they're perfect for adding some variety to your pattern stash without spending money, and they're just super fun... because more patterns = more stuff you get to make. 😁
So the freebies I'm going to talk to you about today are from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. I love Peek-a-boo patterns. I've made a few of them for my boys and have tested a few as well. I feel like the instructions are mostly geared towards beginners, so any skill level can be successful with her patterns. I've really enjoyed the…

Fabulous and FREE! The Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs

I love free patterns, especially when they're by a designer that I already know and love. When Suzanne with Winter Wear Designs drafted this pattern, I was excited! I have not been very exciting with my wardrobe choices in the past - most of my shirts were just basic tees. Solid tees are still nice to have, but it's so much fun to wear something different. Lately I've been LOVING all the fun prints!

I KNEW I wanted to test this pattern, and as soon as I finished sewing it, it became my new favorite shirt. Like... I've been wearing it ALL THE TIME. I really need to make another one!



This is the new free Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs. Isn't it great?

Let me tell you about it!

This top is a semi-fitted tee. You have the options of a solid front or a color blocked front. I color-blocked the front top to be the same fabric as my neckband tie.  The sleeve is a slim poet style sleeve with a cuff. You can either finish the bottom with a band or a simple hem.
