McCall's 6070 Finished!!!!

       I have finally finished McCall's 6070...The dress construction is not hard, even for a beginner such as myself...The directions were fairly good overall. I think it took so long for me to complete the dress, because  simply I am not in love with the fabric as I stated in a previous post....Oh well ,I could always wear this dress as a house dress,especially when you do not want to be in sweats or pj's all day...The only alteration I did to the dress was to not add the elastic waist casing, seeing that this dress was for in the house casual wear.I didn't feel I needed it. I will note that the dress is extremely comfortable, so although I am not fond of the fabric.I am however in love with the comfort of this dress! So in all I am glad that I finished and completed another garment, but now I am ready to get to the meat and potatoes (zippers, buttonholes, linings) lol wish me the best Divas!   As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!


  1. That turned out really cute. I love the fit and the print.

  2. I don't see anything wrong with that fabric. I like both the dress and the fabric. JOb well done.

  3. I like the dress on you! You did a good job! I don't think the fabric is bad, either.

  4. Thanks Ladies, the fabric is really faded I mean bad too...It came that way, it doesn't show up in the pic, but trust it is faded...But if you ladies think it's cute then I trust your judgement lol!

  5. Good job on your dress it looks great on you.

  6. Shari thank you so much! I just found your blog yesterday and your work is outstanding! Very professional looking garments!

The jumpsuit that didn't quite make the Christmas party appearance! M7632

Hey guys! So, long time no blog, right? LOL! I haven't been doing much sewing lately. I was finishing up with my Bachelor's degree, in which I finished up in October, thank you, Jesus!  I'm gearing up for starting on my Master's soon.

Well, let's jump into what this blog is really about, which is M7632. I absolutely loved this pattern when McCall's first released this pattern, and finally got around to it. This pattern sews up fairly quickly, and with only four pattern pieces makes for a great pattern in this busy mom book. I was hoping to finish this jumpsuit in time for my friendship Christmas party with girls, but alas, that didn't happen, lol.

 I wasn't too sure what size to make as I have been on a weight loss journey this year and have lost quite of bit of weight. Although I've managed to lose quite a bit of weight, it's still sometimes hard to see yourself, the new version of yourself. I ended up cutting a size too big in the bodice …

The three pattern dress that took a month to finish:Simplicity 8383

Guys so my sewing mojo has been pretty much non- existent-hence the reason it has taken me over a month to finish the hem of this simple dress,lol..  This dress is Simplicity 8383 and I was so gun-ho  in making this dress, that I went out and purchased the pattern and paid full price, as I couldn't bare to wait the shipping out, then only to take a month to hem said dress that I just had to have :)..

This pattern is very easy. If you have any sewing experience, the instructions would not be of importance to you. The view that I made, view C, has only four pattern pieces:front, back, neck band, and the arm hole binding pattern pieces for the arm holes. I made the 16 and added four inches to the dress and I was still only able to do a tiny hem, so be mindful if you're only the taller end like myself. For the fabric, I used a rayon blend knit fabric that I purchased from a local vendor here in Hawaii some time ago, and I really adore the drape and movement of this fabric.

I al…

Review: M7543

Hey y'all! I'm back with a quick little review, which really I wasn't sure if I was going to make a blog post- due to how quick this project is, but here we are,lol. I also want to thank everyone again on the well wishes on winning the McCall's contest, that was such an amazing thing to happen to me!

It's no secret that off the shoulder is trending, or still trending really hard since last year and I'm lovin' it! This pattern is McCall's 7543, I believe this pattern was apart of the Spring collection, and of course, by now there are lovely versions everywhere of this awesome pattern.

I used an African print fabric that I had been hoarding for sometime now, and I'm glad to have finally gotten a chance to use some of this print up already.

 I made the large,as that's the size that I had in my stash prior to dropping a few pounds ( almost 40 now, thank you Jesus!) I just took a deeper seam allowance, no harm, no foul, this pattern is very forgivin…
