Welcome to the Petite Stitchery Women’s Tops Release Blog tour!!  Please see the list below to visit all the wonderful ladies on the blog tour! Petite Stitchery is entering the wonderful world of women’s sewing patterns.  Honestly, this is my first pattern I have made by Petite Stitchery, since I have only recently discovered them.  I was a little skeptical, since they are new to the women’s scene.  However, I can honestly say I am pleasantly surprised!!

The two new tops being released today are the Rory and the Lulu Dohlman.  You can currently buy them for $7 a piece or buy them both in a bundle for only $10!  Omg!  I love a good deal.  Since I have a Mom bod, I thought I would try the Lulu Dolman.

Often, I feel a dolman shirt can make me larger than I am.  Since, my belly sticks out so much further than the rest of my body I tend to go for more loose fitting clothes.  Dolmans are usually too lose up on top unless I do a lot of grading.  However, I ended up loving the Lulu Dolman from Petite Stitchery.  I feel very pretty in this top.  In fact, when my husband saw it, he said “You’re looking good!”  Thanks honey!!

I love that I can wear this top with leggings too! It has a high low design.  The front is long enough to cover the crotch and the back is long enough to cover my derriere.  ****Please note I am only 5’0″ tall, so it will not be as long on others as this picture, but should be long enough for leggings for your average person.  Petite Stitchery also includes lines on the pattern where you can add or subtract length, according to your height.  I also did not hem this sweater, because I was being lazy.  Petite Stitchery offers up a binding for the bottom of the top, which I am planning on trying for the next one.

Now can we talk fabric?  I have recently been obsessed with Sincerely Rylee Color Palette Sweater Boxes!  (I am waiting on 2 right now).  I am usually not a huge mystery box person.  Honestly, I am not sure I have been happy with any other mystery boxes I have received except from Sincerely Rylee.  She designs the mystery boxes by a color palette and you choose which palette you like.  Awesome!!  These release on Friday evenings.  Sometimes, you have to have fast fingers!  The sparkly fabric is some Silver and Black Metallic Knit I purchased from Etsy.  Speaking of sparkly fabric, have you heard Simply By Ti has sparkly fabric on preorder for only $5!  Including sparkly sweater knit!  But, do not go buy any, I want it all for myself!  Just kidding, maybe..

About Seams Sew Lo 57 Articles

Hi I’m Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help.

With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn’t keep up and had to seek out third party help.

After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure.

I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don’t think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!

  1. I loveyour lulu top, and it’s always great to get a nice comment from your husband when you are wearing something new! I can’t decide between the gold or silver, I saw make two new Lulu’s.

    • Isn’t nice to get compliments! I cannot decide either! I have some white sweater knit too and was thinking of using whichever one I did not use with the pink. I like the idea of two more 🙂
