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!

It's a ruffle kinda of season :Vogue 9243

Guys have you ever started a project, and were quite excited to make the garment, but halfway through finishing, you suddenly lose interest? Well, that was my story. I have never been so ready to call a garment done in my life,lol.

This pattern is seriously not hard at all, technique wise, that is. I mean, once you get over having to hem those four flounces if you do the view that I made, which is view F. However,  I'm just kinda of meh about this project. I  think because I loved McCall's 7542 so much, and was hoping the same for this top too, but nope!

 The neckline on this one is enormously large! I didn't catch this when I tissue fitted the pattern, but I have been more diligent in exercising and eating better, so I don't know; maybe I lost a few pounds, which could have caused the neckline to be large. However, if you look closely at the model on the cover, it looks to be a little large on the model's neckline as well, so something to note.

 Let's get …

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…

I'm just here for the sleeves: M7542

It's no secret, that these sleeves are in everywhere now days! I'm mean, I'm just here for the sleeves myself,lol.

 I loved this pattern at first glance, and I even loved all of the other views that were accompanied within the pattern. I don't think that has every happened for me, now that I  think about it.

 Now looking over the instructions prior to starting this project, I was fairly confident that everything was going to be a breeze, and they were for the most part( however comma) (yes I had to write it out because I would totally say this in real life, lol!)

However, those darn sleeves gave me a run for my money, well not the sleeve itself, but the hem!

 I'm no rookie when it comes to hemming curved hems, or so I thought, because every method I tried was basically like, nope, try again, LOL! 
 After what seemed like an eternity and having to re-cut out an entirely different flounce, I was able to get a decent hem on the flounce of the sleeve. I just used Mc…
