My usual fall and winter wear is yoga pants with a long sleeve tee layered with a husband's sweater to try and keep warm.... I don't do well with cold ... and I look like a Olsen twin crossed with a cat lady. 

So, my goal this momiform makeover was to make myself a long sleeve tunic to wear with tights and a little something extra to cozy it up!


For the long sleeve tunic I used the Sisboom Devon pattern and did one of the longest lengths and then did an elastic waist.

Tights are the peglegs by Patternsbypirates

I also deepened the slit in the front and skipped the ties. I added some elastic to the sleeves.


For the cozy outer layer I decided to get creative and used the Bowling Shirt pattern and made a tie it up cardi with a collar!


Material girl free motion applique pattern from sewingstadium.com by #stitchART

I did a fun flannel outer and a cozy plain flannel inside. Double layers of flannel should keep me warm all winter long as a layer and a coat this fall.


The cardi is awesome open or tied. The sash helps it have some shape in the back when open and when tied as well.




The tutorials for both of these items will be up on the blog starting next week!

Why are you so stinking adorable?
I laughed out loud at the Olsen Twins/cat lady comment. Haha. Dying.

Shanna said...

I like the thread-cutter and the lights! It's a great little-workhorse of a machine!

Katie said...

What a cute take on the bowling shirt! I love that cardigan.

Adra chim said...

Love the SS bowling shirt as a cardi!

Nicole said...

Ninety one needle positions! Be still my heart!

Nicole said...

I'm itching to make the Ginger Jeans. I'd also love to make the Kathryn by Mouse House and the Sutton by True Bias

Brenda said...

The Janome Skyline S5 looks amazing...especially when my machine is from sometime in the 80's. There is such a wide variety of features, but the automatic tension sounds great. I'm never really sure if my tension is correct or not on my current machine.

Brenda said...

I like the Biscayne Blouse and Sloan leggings from hey June.

Sharon K said...

I like the auto tension feature. Love the adorable outfit ideas!!

KelseyAnn Rose said...

NINETY-ONE needle positions?! Holy moly! And 170 stitches?! Jeepers! I'm sold!

MSL said...

Wow! I love, love, love that cardigan. Cannot wait for the tutorial. Great job.

Tina Voth said...

Everything! Who couldn't use a nice little workhorse like this?

Ajaire Parello said...

Haha Olsen twin... I love that cardi! It turned out so well.

KelseyAnn Rose said...

I'm really excited about the Ginger Jeans and the Athena Top! I've heard great things about the gingers and I love the look of the athena!

You are so darn cute! I love the cardigan idea!

Shanna said...

I would love the muffinhead peaches uniforms for myself, it would make a fabulous dress as well as a halloween costume! I also love the Penny Pea coat from Ella Inspired (I know that is not a mommy-sized pattern, but I would be a happier better-dressed mama is my daughter had a coat!)

EHC said...

The 6 LED lights sound pretty cool!

EHC said...

Honestly, all of these pattern designers do amazing stuff--I would love to try any of them!

Nicole Taylor said...

Hehehe, Olsen X Cat Lady

I love the leggings/tunic look though, I've got both of those patterns on my list too :)

Kathleen Kelley said...

I would love to sew up the Sutton by True Bias. And that Janome is amazing! I think my favorite thing is the cutter!

ShirleyC said...

I would love this machine! I'd love having the spacious bed area, and the led lights! The more lights, the better to sew!

ShirleyC said...

I would love the Ellie Inspired Jazzy Girl pattern, and Laurelette dress from GreenStyle Creations.

Carmen Sizemore said...

Love your pattern modifications. The machine looks awesome.

Paisley Roots said...

You are so stinking cute! I just love Janome machines. LOL

Eileen said...

I need a new momiform! I want some cute but comfy pants.

Kelie McWilliams said...

First of all, the automatic thread cutter is probably one of my favorite things ever... Second of all, I really need to get my house clothes in order. My husband is super over my hoodies & lounge pants everyday. Whoops!

Danice said...

What great giveaways! I am going to enter :)

Danice said...

I love everything about the Janome Skyline S5 machine, esp. the backlit LCD sceeen and the 91 needle positions :)

2 patterns I'd love to sew from Peek A Boo: Audrey girls dress and the Oopsy Daisy Girls Overall Jumper :)

Ginger said...

I like the Needle Up/Down

Ginger said...

I would love to sew a Collette dress or 2
