I have had this pattern for a bit waiting for me to sew it. I loved the style of it, and the options. I kind of couldn't get over the sleeves, but I don't love gathering, so I put it off.
I put it off for a while... until I had the perfect fabric for it!

This is the Pattern Emporium Hello Gorgeous:
Isn't it gorgeous? I sewed it up in a couple of hours last weekend. It did take a tad bit longer than a basic tee, but I think it was worth it! The sleeves are so cool! I seriously love them!
This pattern has several options for sewing it up including neckline options (a really cool almost-square neck in both a higher and lower cut option, and both a high and low round neckline). It has really awesome puff sleeves in four lengths, and two separate cut lines for a shorter or longer bodice.
I made this top for my sister. She is pregnant, and I was initially looking for a maternity pattern. She told me though that she has a few non-maternity tee shirts that fit well - they're just longer. She measured one of these tops, gave me the side seam length, and I made the side sleeve of this top match those. It's perfect! I ended up adding two inches to the length of the long top.
She measures into a size 8 bust. Pre-pregnancy, she probably measured into an 8 waist too. However, I decided to grade to a size 10 waist/ hips to give her some growing room!
I tried the top on myself as soon as I was finished sewing it, and it was a tunic length on me - it was a great length to wear with leggings!
The puff sleeves on the top can be made in short, above and below the elbow with cuffs, or you can use these long sleeve extension pieces to make it long sleeved. I am OBSESSED with the sleeves!
This week, Amelia Lane Designs stocked several new prints, some ribbing, some DBP, and liverpool. They have some really awesome tie dye prints.
This fabric is one of the new ribbing fabrics. It is so soft! It is called "Boone." They have a few other really gorgeous ones too!
They'll be on sale for a few days (through Monday 10/26/20). Don't miss out on the "New Arrivals"
