This Mother's Day was very special for me. My own mother was able to fly here for the week so I got to spend the whole day with her! Yay for moms! I surprised my mom with an Ojai Wrap and Casual Lady Dress. Sewing clothes for someone else can be tricky but these two sewing patterns are so easy and flattering they were a win-win. Both patterns are made with knit fabric. Casual and comfortable. Use a serger or a sewing machine.
The Ojai Wrap is the first pattern by Justine Marie Patterns. It's a great cardigan like top that's easy fit and definitely easy to sew. The Ojai Wrap is a PDF pattern so you can download it to your computer and get sewing right away.
The fit is really great! My mother is very petite so I made some adjustments to length but other than that it fits nicely.
The pattern has a lengthen/shorten line so I cut the pattern piece there and shortened it 8 inches. The pattern states that it is the perfect length for women who are 5'6".
White mystery knit from who knows where. I've been holding onto that great fabric for a couple years and finally found the perfect use! Pre-wash your fabric.
What I would do differently:
Nothing. Great pattern.
1.5 hours start to finish.
Great arm detail!
So Happy Mother's Day to my mom! She loves her new outfit and she looks fantastic! Thanks for sending me the Ojai pattern, Justine!
The Casual Lady Top & Dress is my own pattern. It's been a hit for the past year and it's easy to see why. Such an easy to wear, easy to sew dress.
Justine is giving away 5 copies of the pattern! Enter to win!
