Empowered Sleeves



You Are Amazing, You Are Beautiful, You Are Smart, You Are A Child of God, and You Can Do Anything You Want to Do!! This is what I've always believed and lived by, thanks to some of the amazing women that have looked out for me all through the years. And this is what I try to instill in every girl and women around me. We have to continue to empower each other not matter what. 

Empowered. This is what I felt when I wore this top. I literally felt like I could conquer the world, especially after tackling those sleeves. The top is absolutely beautiful and I was glad to finally use this print that I have kept for years.


Pattern Description: Misses' Wrap Tops and Dresses with Waist Tie. Fitted tops and dresses have sleeve and length variations.

Pattern Sizing: I cut out the Pattern Size 14 (I should have went smaller).. I think the size runs big a little, especially in the bust area.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the website once you were done sewing with it? I believe so.. 

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were pretty easy to follow. 

What did you particularly like about the pattern? I love the sleeves.. They are so beautiful.

Fabric Used: African Print from the Stash.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  No alteration made. The only thing I did was fold and stitch the tuck before sewing the seam on the sleeves. This made it easier to stitch the tuck and press the sleeves.

Would you sew it again? Yes, I will, but in a small size and maybe a solid color fabric.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, definitely a must have. It's also trendy.

Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them. 


  1. The sleeves are so beautiful, and so is the top. You look great and it goes so well with the pants.

  2. The sleeves are amazing. They highlight the fabric in both pattern and drape. Very sharp make. Styled beautifully, and carried off even better.
