I have been holding onto this watercolor fabric panel by Aurora Designs for awhile now.  As, I did not know what I wanted it to be, I just knew I had to have it.  Every Friday, Aurora Designs, does $5 fabric panels, one Friday this watercolor panel was on sale.  It says, “Kindness is Free, Sprinkle that Shit Everywhere.”  You can find it here. I normally do not wear curse words on my shirt, however this fabric panel just spoke to me.

If you read my blog often, you may know I have searching for an off the shoulder shirt sewing pattern.  I even did my own off the shoulder shirt hack awhile back.  So, when the, off the shoulder shirt, Mama Stella sewing pattern released from Made for Mermaids, I bought it immediately. You can find it here.  There are tons of other options for this women’s shirt sewing pattern too! Plus there is matching version for little girls too here! Yes, I bought it too!

I am happy to report, I honestly love the Mama Stella.  In, fact I made four of them for vacation.  I wanted to make 5, but ran out of time! 🙁 Please excuse my squinty eyes, but it was bright outside. Oh and the no makeup…  I was on the beach…  I am definitely not complaining though, I heard it snowed at home today.

After I made two Stellas and realized I loved the sewing pattern.  I knew it would be safe to make a Stella with my favorite favorite panel!  I was so excited!  Then, it was a matter of which fabric to choose to make the rest of the shirt.  I used left over fabric from the fabric panel for the sleeves cuffs. I was debating between a few colors.  At that moment, I realized the 52 Week Sewing Challenge for this week was color blocking!  You can join their Facebook group here and if you are a sewing blogger, can submit your make https://www.seamssewlo.com/2018/03/07/52-week-sewing-challenge-blog-tour-week-10-sew-something-color-blocked/here for the blog link up!

I used some mint double brushed polyester from Knitpop (so soft!!) for the sleeves and pink single brushed polyester from Allielane in Abbyville.  Allielane is unfortunately closing her the fabric portion shop, so check out her deals before she closes shop.

I paired my gorgeous Stella with the new Mya Skirt sewing Pattern. You can find it on sale for its release here.  I used an oatmeal Baby French Terry by Simply By Ti.  It is so luxurious and so soft.  The Baby French terry is lighter weight and perfect for our 60’s and 70’s we are having here on vacation.  The Mya Skirt was very simple to make.  It has some trendy waistband options (not shown here) and several different lengths.  The Mya Skirt can also be made with woven fabric and a knit waistband.  I made one, but will show you that one a little later…

Maybe, it is because I am on vacation, but I am so super excited about this outfit!  I look forward to showing you the other Stellas and the other Mya Skirt I made for this vacation.  Let me know in the comments below, do you like the off shoulder look?

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!!
