Designer Stitch Ravanna Pants

I love testing patterns for Designer Stitch! They are always perfectly drafted and on trend. I was excited to test the Ravanna Wrap Pants. I've seen pants like this all over Pinterest and shopping sites. They look so fun and perfect for summer.

The Ravanna's have 2 waist options (fitted and elastic). They also have straight and curved hem options. The day I went to take my photos, there was a storm blowing in.

That wind was blowing something fierce! But the wrap around design is perfectly drafted to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions.

From the back - you can't tell the Ravanna pants have a wrap around leg. Unless the wind is trying to blow you away.

I wanted to show how the leg pieces were overlapped. I had to physically move the pieces around my leg to do this.

Just showing a little leg. My top is the Tidewater Tee from Winter Wear Designs. I made it using a Navy rayon spandex from Simply by Ti.

I made these pants with a polyester satin. These have an elastic waist and the straight hem. I can't wait to make a pair with a denim chambray with a curved hem. I think they will be perfect to go with all my summery tops.

Grab the Ravanna Wrap Pants for $8 for a limited time!

Pink Zeppelin #PZspooktakular

Pink Zeppelin always has the coolest holiday prints. The current preorder is full of some amazing Halloween themed prints and this awesome Sugar Skull design. It comes in small scale and large scale - I'm wearing the small scale. It comes in a variety of fabric bases - cotton lycra, brushed poly, bamboo lycra, chiffon, cotton woven, french terry, minky, swim, and PUL. I'm wearing the brushed poly.

I love sugar skulls and their connection to Dia de los Muertos.

My top is a pattern hack I did off of a shirt I saw in a store recently. I love how it turned out!

I can't wait to wear this on November 2nd - although I'll be wearing it all the time.

My Day of the Dead Bride & Groom look so great with the fabric too.

The preorder closes on July 20th! Don't miss it!

Jaded Threads Shoppe Not A Princess

The current round at Jaded Threads Shoppe is titled "Not a Princess". If you have a small child, then you probably know that this is a Moana inspired round.If you have adult aged children, like me, you probably are wondering why it's called "Not a Princess". But don't let the name fool you - this round has a great coordinate that's perfect for some "Adult" sewing.

Jaded Threads Shoppe is offering this cool Burlap print in 7 gorgeous colors! This is the Grass Burlap.

I was sent the cotton lycra - it's also available on bamboo lycra, cotton woven, swim, and boardshort material. I made the Duck Butt Designs Carols Favorite Tee (CFT) with it. This is just 1 yard of fabric!

I was also sent Stormy Burlap. This color is so hard to describe, but I'll call it a purplish grey. Its a gorgeous color.

The print in this color felt very serious, and I wanted to do something fun with it. I went with the Winter Wear Designs Tidewater Tee and wore a strappy back bra under it to show through the "peekaboo" back.

I love how my top turned out and it looked great with black slacks for work. I however wore a normal bra that did not show through.

I love this burlap print and can see myself making a shirt in every color. It's like a solid, but not as boring. The preorder closes on July 23rd. #JTnotaprincess

Little Roots Fabrics Fly Away Jane Austen

I love Little Roots Fabrics. They print in the US, using organic inks, on domestically produced cotton lycra. When I thought they couldn't get even better, they now plant a tree in Colorado for every order placed! That is AMAZING!

The current preorder is also AMAZING! Go check out all the gorgeous prints on the website at

I was the lucky person that was sent the Fly Away Jane Austen print. I love the quote on it from Pride & Prejudice "Til this moment I never knew myself".

It's simply gorgeous in monochromatic shades of black & white. I used the Bethouia from Elle Puls to make my top.

The charcoal dots are the perfect coordinate for it.

The preorder closes on August 1st. Don't miss it!

Starfluffle Fabrics always has unique designs that I love. I was so excited to have the opportunity to sew up a sample of bamboo lycra for the preorder that opened on July 6th!

Sara Miller, the owner of Starfluffle, specifically asked that I make a ladies top with no coordinates to show off the print she wanted to send me. When I got it, I immediately knew why. It's just gorgeous and deserves to be shown off all on it's own.

Isn't that gorgeous? It's the Linen Collection - Mustard. I love the rich mustard color with the linen style design.

I was sent a yard of this print on a luxurious bamboo lycra.

I have a handful of patterns that use a yard of fabric and decided to make the Winter Wear Designs Tidewater Tee. This bamboo is so soft and flowy. It was perfect for this pattern.

The only change I made, was to add 3/4 length sleeves. This top will get a ton of wear all summer and fall. This print is subtle enough to make it an interesting solid that won't clash with other patterns.

This print also comes in a blue (like a pale sea glass), lilac, and rose. I think a need a shirt in every color. There are also some other amazing designs that coordinate beautifully with the linen prints. The preorder is open through July 24th. Order at 

Thanks for reading.  Find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
