Happy New Year! We celebrated with a little fondue, Rock Band and confetti cannons and now it’s time to relax and settle into an exciting year to come.
My first post of the year (decade!) is very fitting. I’m bringing you a round up of some of my favorite Love Notions makes from 2019 in honor of their rare 30% off site-wide sale. 2019 brought a little slow-down to my sewing but I still made sure to make plenty of time to continue to work with the companies that I love- Love Notions being at the top of that list! I love the quality of LN patterns and the fact that there’s a little something for the whole family.

The Samson Sweater is one of those patterns I use over and over. I love it for my girls and also my little guy. It’s a little boxier than our other raglan patterns and makes the perfect sweatshirt. It’s easy to size up, add length or crop to get different looks. Plus it sews up soooo fast!
I made my first Kayak Boardshorts last year and I’m hoping to squeeze in another pair for our mid-winter beach trip. They were super easy to hack to get this look for my teenager but I think my littlest man would love a pair as-is. The knit waistband would be just what he prefers.
The Sloane Sweater continues to be a favorite for both me and my kids. Last year I made for my first one for Charlie and I adore how it turned out. There are a ton of options and that back yoke piece is just perfect for playing with fabric combos.
Last year was all about the dresses for me. Dresses are my favorite things to sew and Love Notions Lyric and Dolce dresses were a big hit for me and my girly. I can’t wait to sew a new one for my this spring!
I also added a couple of new Willow Wrap dresses to my wardrobe and I adore this pattern! These are both maxi hacks- the mustard version uses the Olympia skirt and the tropical print is just a lengthened gathered skirt version. These dresses are the ultimate in comfort!
The Melody Dolman is the LN pattern release I anticipated the most and it did not disappoint. I wore this top to death all summer and love how easy to wear it is. It looks great with jeans and feels so pulled together. If you are looking to try a button-up pattern for the first time, this is a great intro pattern. It’s easy to follow and sews up so nice and quick.
The Octave Coat is one of my proudest makes of 2019. I wear this beauty so much and feel giddy at the thought that I actually made it. It was a fairly simple sew and another great pattern for anyone wanting to push themselves just a bit. With so many different recommended fabric choices, you can make just the coat you’re dreaming of.
To round out this round-up, I’ll leave you with my absolute favorite Love Notions pattern, the Classic Tee (the girl’s version is equally awesome!). I wore these tees to death all spring, summer, and fall and continue to wear them layered under cardis and sweatshirts in the cold weather. I also love the long sleeve option. This tee is the perfect slouchy tee and I love it in so many different fabrics. If you were to just buy one pattern during the sale, do yourself a favor and pick up this beaut.
It was really hard to pick my top Love Notions patterns! If you’re looking for more options you can head here for all of my past Love Notions makes. Happy New Year and Happy Shopping!
