The Hello Gorgeous by Pattern Emporium

 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! 

The Fabric:

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"

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 (Gwen๐Ÿ˜‰), 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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
