My love for drafting great modern pdf sewing patterns for women has found a great match…Girl Charlee Fabrics!
We’re both all about modern, trendy looks! And like Girl Charlee I mostly design for knit fabrics 🙂
Here is the first Girl Charlee sponsored pattern of mine: the Everyday Elegance Top
This top is perfect for everyday wear with a great put together look! The loose flowy fit is so comfortable and flattering for women of all ages and shapes! Speaking of shapes, this pattern is from XXS-XXXL… if you’d like to see it in all sizes head over to my group where you can find every size modeled and what fabric they used! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1489835597930083/
I’m wearing Girl Charlee peach skin on the cover photo, this is a soft woven fabric with a lovely drape. It is one of the easiest drapey wovens I’ve ever worked with, because it’s not slippery! Plus! 🙂
Here I am in another Girl Charlee fabric- their chiffon.
Now SOME chiffons can be more difficult to work with, but this navy and white dot wasn’t! Although it is still chiffon, so it doesn’t like to hold a press well, it wasn’t super slippery while sewing. I LOVE this one! The super soft drape is a perfect match for this loose top!
This top can also be made is a knit fabric, which Girl Charlee is best known for! Here is my LOVELY sister in an all knit Everyday Elegance Top:
Isn’t she beautiful? Made in a soft knit, you can’t beat the comfort level of this shirt! And yet, you still look dressed nice, trendy, and even professional enough to go to work, church or out for some fun!
Some of the details on the shirt are the V front and rounded collar here:
That’s right ladies, no tricky placket or buttons for you to get frustrated with! All the techniques on this top are easy and quick!
The sleeves have a small gather at the shoulder seam:
That means all your ease is in that gather–no tricky easing in the set in sleeves! YAY! Again, easy techniques!
The button tabs add such a cute and trendy look to the 3/4 sleeve, so you can wear this top year round!
And the longer tunic length with curved hem is perfect for pairing with leggings, skinny jeans or even your favorite work slacks! No more worrying about anything hanging out when you bend over 😉
And last the back yoke is perfect to play with fabric combos, and the back pleat gives it the extra flowy looseness you need in the back 😉
Not so into loose blouses? That’s okay! This pattern also comes with a quick and easy belt you can tie around at empire, waist or hips-whichever is most flattering for your figure!
Oh… look at that baby bump looking oh so adorable in this non-modified knit Everyday Elegance Top!
