Made for Mermaids Stella Sweater


I’ve been quiet on the blog lately because I’ve been busy sewing up 1000 versions of all the new Made for Mermaids Lounge & Lace Collection patterns before release! The newest pattern in the collection is the Stella Sweater, available in Mama, Girls, and Dolly sizes!

Stella is quick and easy knit banded top or tunic (or dress if you want to extend the length on your own!). It is full of fun, trendy options. It features a slight drop shoulder bodice, 4 different back options (full back, v back with optional band or ties, keyhole back, and off shoulder), and several sleeve length options!

This sweater was PERFECT for using up all the stray french terry I seem to have been hoarding. This blue floral version is my favorite of all the versions I made for Bee; you can check out the hacks I used on the Made for Mermaids blog! Of course, I had to make myself one too:


Mama Stella is perfect with the recently released Bridgette Bralette, and I’m wearing it here with a pair of distressed SOS Pants from Patterns for Pirates.

The only version I DIDN’T make was actually the full back option! I was having way too much fun with the others 🙂  Here are a few of my favorites that I made for myself:

Naturally, we couldn’t leave all of our dollies out! How cute are the little tiny Stellas?!


Check out the Made for Mermaids blog for hack ideas, and stay tuned for the next pattern release in the Lounge & Lace Collection!

Thank you for stopping by! I'm the mama behind em and ellie, formerly mama & little e. Although I've been a crafty sewist for years, I formally started my DIY adventure in July 2013, after a lot of prompting from Mr. Mama, and two random unrelated orders for baby gifts from friends. Shortly after the first two orders, I launched an etsy shop. On top of running my handmade boutique, I love to spend time repurposing random junk, making ridiculous Halloween costumes out of cardboard, decorating (and re-decorating) our home on a budget, taking pictures of my kids, and making elaborate meal plans that nobody actually follows. I also own an obscene amount of throw pillows.
