Janice Boho Top by Wardrobe by me

Janice Boho Top by Wardrobe By Me

New pattern released by WBM - Janice Boho. It has that floaty, boho vibes we've been seeing a lot this summer. The sleeves really steal the show! Statement Sleeves have been such a trend this year. It will be perfect for going into fall.

Janice Boho, Size 10 graded to 14, 7/8 sleeve with Voilant (Bell) ruffle

Janice Boho in size 10. Gathered ruffle sleeve and ruffle hem. 

Let's talk about the hem ruffle. It provides just the right amount of fluff without going too overboard. I used a lightweight chiffon for this garment. It is a wee bit see-through so I will be wearing it with a cami for work. It provides a great amount of drape though that is lovely with this pattern.

Janice Boho comes with two neckline options - O and V, 3 sleeve lengths - 3/4, 7/8, and Long sleeve, two gathered sleeve ruffle sizes - narrow and wide, and a bell shaped (voilant) sleeve. It has 2 bodice options too - with ruffle and without ruffle!

Still need more reasons by buy Janis? It can be made in woven or knit fabrics. Just makes sure to size down for knits! This top is so versatile, it is a must have in your pattern collection. I have a hack planned for a knit Janice that I can't wait to make and share. I honestly want many versions of this top in my closet already!

Even if you're not big into following trends on the runways, you must have seen the sleeves in stores. Some are super exaggerated and take a life of their own! These, however, are just enough to give it that flair without overwhelming your frame. Trust me, I'm 5'0. I don't want anything taking over my frame and this I feel hits just the right balance.

Itch to Stitch blog tour 2018

It's time to sew Itch to Stitch
I am participating in the blog tour again this year. This is a time to sew Itch to Stitch patterns we've been meaning to make for long! I have had my eyes on Crystal Cove Cami since it released and the Angelia Shortswere on my #makenine2018! It was absolutely the easiest decision to participate in the blog tour and pick these 2 patterns. Itch to Stitch patterns are very well drafted, have precise yet detailed instructions. Kennis Wong is well respected in the industry for putting out top notch patterns. It is an absolute pleasure to sew ITS patterns!



One of the wonderful sponsors D&H fabrics sent me this beautiful Moonstone in blue (Atelier Brunette) fabric that I absolutely love! More info on the fabric below - 



Before I go on with the construction details, I want to mention that both the Crystal Cove Cami and Angelia Shorts are on a FLASH SALE for 24 hours only! TODAY ONLY (9/20), you can get Crystal Cove Cami for $8 and and Angelia Shorts

Working on my shorts muslin

I'm working on my shorts muslin for the Wardrobe contest. The pattern I have selected is something that has been in my stash for a while. I never even took it out of the envelope because I was afraid of what I call 'smile wrinkles'. 


They are the wrinkles that form in the front and back crotch areas indicating there is a problem somewhere. So far, I thought my full tummy was a problem and it was not suited for a cute pattern like this, meaning I shouldn't wear cute shorts. WRONG! I have always noticed my RTW shorts ride up in the back, the side seams swing backwards giving a 'duck butt' kind of appearance. It happens to skirts as well but not to that degree. Also, my shorts inseams tend to 'walk upwards' when I move around. 
I have been working on resolving the wrinkling problem since the beginning of January. Remember, this is the Year of the Pant for me? I want well fitting pants so I've been at it pretty much any chance I get. Here I'm showi…

Basically Jalie Blog Tour - Day 2

(This post has been sponsored by Jalie Patterns. There is  a sewalong, rafflecopter, and amazing prizes to win so keep reading! ) 

Majority of what I wear are work/business casual outfits and hence that is majority of what I sew. I am always looking for cute woven tops to add to my rotation. I love making tunic tops especially now that I've learned to fit them. I never liked any store bought ill fitting and stiff feeling tops especially button-downs but now that I can make them and make them to fit, it is a whole different story!

This blog-tour is for basics and I consider woven tops to be part of my daily basic wardrobe so that is what I made for this blog tour.


This is the Rose blouse (Jalie 3881) in a woven crepe fabric I got recently from Sincerely Rylee. The fabric is gorgeous and so easy to work with. 
I chose this top because of the bow. Let's be honest, we love blouses with bows! I have never been able to find a perfect blouse with a f…
