Sew Yourself Some Love!


Welcome to my stop n the Pattern Revolution Sew Yourself Some Love 2016 Blog Tour! As I mentioned last week it’s been all kid sewing all the time the past few months. I have changed sizes recently and things were getting dire. Pattern Revolution putting out a call to sew some things for ourselves was just what I needed to get in gear. I chose to sew the Patterns for Pirates Slim Fit Raglan and WinterWear Designs Womens Aviator Pants!

I was provided a copy of the Slim Fit Raglan for the Tour. Opinions expressed are my own. 


I recently won a yard of Stenzo Love Lines in Purple in a giveaway from one of my favorite shops Mabel Madison. I knew immediately I wanted to make a raglan for myself so I tried out the Slim Fit Raglan from Patterns for Pirates. I was right between 1X and 2X for this one. I would normally size up in that case but I have been going down in sizes so went with the straight 1x. I like the fit of this a lot, snug in the bust and a little more ease through the midsection. I think it will still look great if I lose more weight and it ends up a little more loose.


I also made the WinterWear Designs Aviator Pants. I tested these originally and still love them. I made them with the yoga waist out of a lightweight stretch denim. I used the knit cuffed leg option. These are so comfy like wearing pajamas but they are super cute totally legit pants.


This was the first time I did the triangle insert option and I am in love. For the triangle pieces I used the same denim but added a lace overlay. To do the overlay I just cut the same pieces out of lace, put them on top of the denim pieces and basted them on. Once I had the lace on the triangle pieces I just sewed up the pattern as stated.


I love both of my new pieces. They are great transition items into spring and will mix in well with my existing wardrobe.

  1. Both of these pieces look great! Love the lace overlay — that was such a great idea. I have and love the SFR pattern but wasn’t familiar with these pants. Now off to check them out… 🙂

    1. Thank you! The pants I had made before but without the triangle detail. I really like the detail in them. I think I will have to make a crazy pair with a couple of prints =)

    1. Thank you for having me! I was just in target yesterday and walked through clothes which I rarely do. Lace all over the place!! I think I’ll have to order more now.
