Today is for me! It’s for the women, the mom’s, the ones who don’t sew for themselves often enough. That means I am sewing with Patterns for Pirates! She has it all: boys, men’s, women’s and even some girls patterns. First, the boys patterns really set her apart since it is hard to find clothing for boys that only works up to a young age. Then matching mens patterns came. Once her women’s patterns started pouring in (seriously, the women is a machine. A smoking hot machine!) that is when she really started getting a following. The patterns are designed specifically with women with curves, but work for all body types. They generally go from size XXS-3XL and have tons of options. You can see my posts using P4P HERE and HERE
Since warmer weather is here, I have been wanting a romper. I had a though that maybe the Straight Palazzos combined with the Layer me Up tank would work well. It ended up needing some tweaking, but is still perfect for those summer months.

I used the pattern in my size, but should have gone up a size since I used a rayon for the shorts. That is why there is a knit panel on the sides. I kept the waistband in knit matching the top. For the tank top, I cut it right where the waist starts curving out. Then I made the shorts and tank as the directions say and attached the bottom of the tank to the top of the waistband. I also lowered the back so that I could just slip it on and off. It is so comfy. Probably way too comfortable.
I am thinking the new tank pattern would be even better to mash, or the Everyday Elegance. Either way, Judy’s patterns fit great, are super easy to understand and can be modified a number of ways. You will enjoy these staple pieces in your pattern wardrobe.
