The Creative Cap Sleeve Top by Winter Wear Designs

I didn't realize until recently that I have a "thing" for Dolman Patterns. It was when I blogged here that I remembered exactly how many dolman patterns I have! You may have also noticed that I sew a good many Winter Wear Designs Patterns, so when Suzanne mentioned that she had a dolman ready for testing, I didn't hesitate!

This is the New Creative Cap Sleeve Top by Winter Wear Designs!

This pattern is a basic dolman patterns, but as the word "Creative" in the title suggests, it's got some options! It's an easy, pretty quick sew (depending on the options you choose). When you sew it for the first time, you'll notice that the side seams and armscyes are finished slightly differently than other dolmans, giving it this "cap sleeve" look. I made two during testing, and I think each took around an hour or a little less to sew.

It is drafted for knit fabrics, and has a very cute fit!

If you've made a Winter Wear Designs pattern before, you're used to options, and this one does not disappoint. You can sew it with a regular banded neckline, or a bias bound neckline. There is the "classic front" and "classic back" option, which is just a basic tee shirt without other details. There are front and back yoke options. You can choose to add gathering to the back of your shirt to make it fuller. The V back with crossed straps is super cute and a different style! The sleeves can either be hemmed or finished with cuffs. The hem options include: a straight hem, a shirttail hem, or a vented side hem. The front tie look is really in now, so Suzanne included that as another option on this top as well! Finally, you can choose your length - regular, long, or tunic length.

My Top: 

For my top, I chose just a basic, "classic" front and back. I loved the shirttail hem for wearing with leggings. My top has a regular banded neckline, and hemmed sleeves. It was SUPER fast and easy to put together and sew!

Putting the pattern together was easy, and it was not difficult to determine which pieces I needed for the version I wanted to sew.The pattern pieces are clearly labeled, and although there are many options included in this pattern, it is not difficult to figure out what you need to use!

The Pattern is now a $5 Wardrobe Builder at Winter Wear Designs. Y'all I love the Wardrobe Builders! They're basic patterns, with many options. They're worth way more than $5 in my opinion! πŸ˜‰ But, they're always $5 forever! πŸ’“

So head on over to the Winter Wear Designs Website and look at this beautiful pattern for yourself! You'll also be able to see many testers wearing their tops! This will give you the opportunity to see every version of the pattern in different sizes!

The Wardrobe by Me Asta Dress

Sometimes you find a pattern that you'll pull out again and again. That is the case with this pattern. I love wearing dresses. I feel so pretty and feminine. Putting on a dress can put me in a better mood sometimes. So I was more than excited to test the expansion of the Asta Dress. **Disclosure: I have included my affiliate link to the pattern I used for this post. If you choose to purchase a pattern from Wardrobe by Me using my link, I'll receive a small commission of the sale at no additional cost to you.** I've sewn this pattern a couple of times before. Once I made the sleeveless version and another time, I made a sleeved version. I've worn both of them several times.  So I already knew I liked the pattern, and was thrilled to try some of the new options!  Here is my new Wardrobe by Me Asta Dress . The pattern: The pattern is drafted for knit fabrics. It makes a beautiful dress with a few options you can choose from. You can make your dress sleeveless, or chose rom

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 f

My 2018 Sinclair Round Up!

So, as you may have seen, Sinclair Patterns is running a sale this week! It's the last week of the year, and she has marked everything in her shop 25% off for a boxing day/ End of Year Sale! So generous! I started sewing more for myself in 2018, and discovered a couple of pattern designers that I love using for my clothes... Sinclair is one of them! I've mentioned before that I get a really great fit from her patterns. Every Sinclair pattern I have tried has been on regular rotation. They're all so perfect, and fit my body type wonderfully. So since she is having a sale, I started looking back at photos so that I could share the sale in Facebook Sewing Groups. I noticed how many Sinclair Patterns I've made, so I thought it would be fun to do a 2018 Sinclair Pattern round up to see all of my Sinclair sews in one place! πŸ™‚ So... Here we go! The Betty The Betty was the very first Sinclair pattern I tried, and that's when I fell in LOVE with Sinclair! I actua
