Cozy Up To Fall Blog Tour With EYMM


Every since we moved to New England about two years ago, fall has been my favorite season. But, with beautiful views like this, who wouldn't love it? Besides the beautiful leaves, I love the apple picking and all the baking that the season inspires. One of my kids favorite cookies is the AppleDoodle. We use this recipe. They are absolutely delicious with fresh picked apples.
Once the crisp fall air starts I love to slip into my long sleeve shirts and curl up on the porch with a cup of hot tea, a couple appledoodles and a good book.
I have had the EYMM Piko pattern sitting in my files for awhile but I hadn't had time to sew it up.
I'm not sure what took me so long because I am absolutely in love with this shirt! I used a soft lightweight knit that I had sitting in my stash and it came out so comfy! I love that the long sleeves are fitted, baggy sleeves leave my arms chilly. The next thing on my sewing list is the Get Moving Leggings so I made my Piko Top a little longer to cover booty when I have on the leggings.

EYMM Valentine Essentials Blog Tour

It feels like I haven't blogged in forever! Life has been a little crazy around here and it was nice to take a break and sew something for myself.
For this Blog Tour, myself and the other seamstress' are showing off our version of the Everyday Essential pattern. 
From the EYMM website:
"The Everyday Essentials Set for women is a collection of simple knit undergarments that are perfect for layering. Included are a comfortable sleeping bra, a cami, 2 different length gowns that can be made as nightgown or has a full slip and chemise as well as 2 different length half slips. These pieces are a great in between layer for slinking, thin or lightweight dresses and skirts to provide more modest cover of your bra and underwear.
Because everyone has different shape and preferences, 3 different cup sizes are available for each size of the bodice, as well as a variety of finishes for the neck, arms and hem including knit binding, elastic and lace. As a bonus we have also included 2 different lengths of an optional slit! The bra, cami and gowns are all nursing and maternity friendly!
This pattern includes 10 sizes for women from misses XS to plus size 5X."

For my set I sewed up the cami and half slip. I modified my slip to have a yoga band at the waist for added comfort. It is so comfortable I may wear it as a regular skirt. 
I was surprised how quick this set sewed up and I already have a night gown ready to go.
Another plus, my kids won't be embarrassed to see me in my pjs :) 

Make sure you check everyone else out on the tour!
