Rhapsody In Blue….

and plum and cream and florals and so on……

If you haven’t made a Rhapsody blouse…what are you waiting for? Don’t be like me and miss out on this awesome pattern any longer. Can you believe that I had never made one until just a few weeks ago. Fast forward to today~ and I now have 5!!

I LOVE this pattern! My go to woven top pattern used to be the Harmony, and although I still love my Harmonys~ the Rhapsody has moved to the top! I find it so amazing that one blouse(and dress)pattern can create so many totally different blouses! A casual top to wear with jeans, a dressier blouse to wear to work, or a boho blouse to wear with linen pants~ the Rhapsody can do it all!

I HIGHLY recommend grabbing this week’s Love Notions Feature Friday pattern today (5/20/22) for $5. You will not be disappointed!

The Cadence Got Updated~ My Mindset Did Too!

The Love Notions Cadence just got an update for Spring~ and to my surprise my mindset has gotten an update as well! I’m going to be totally honest here. I planned to make this a post simply about the updated Cadence, it’s options and how I made it to fit my pear shape. I made a top version and then a knee length dress. I was happy with them both. Then I went outside with my trusty tripod and took photos. And that’s when it hit me. Everything I thought before about fitting my body changed. Be sure to read down to the Sizing and Alterations section to learn what I discovered!

Oh yeah, and the Cadence is only $5 today, Friday 5/6 and $9 on Saturday and Sunday 5/7 and 5/8. Seriously go grab it~ you won’t be disappointed. This breezy shift style dress deserves a place in everyone’s closet!
