How to get that look Divas!

Let's chat Divas! Okay, so I have been secretly obsessing over jackets....Not just any jackets but blazers.... I love the whole style of blazers, for the simple fact  that, that style of jacket can take you from late winter, to early spring...Of course that is depending upon the climate in where you live... 

Also, along with the blazers being totally chic, something you can dress up, dress down, and any where in between that is major for me!  Especially for me being a stay-at-home mom that would still in enable me to do the everyday activities with my boys as well as be "mom chic"( yeah this is the new word) lol....  So, of course I could buy a few trendy blazers, but now that wouldn't be much fun now would it; nope, my sentiments exactly :)  

  Here are couple of styles of blazers that really caught my attention:

I would love this with a pair of jeans and cute pair of heels too cute! I may have to do
a muslin for this pattern, and see how it goes!

Well Divas that's all for now! Just wanted to share some thoughts let me know what you think
 As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!!!!


  1. I am a big fan of blazers and looking forward to your mom chic look.

  2. Sheila, I love the whole blazer look...Your new boyfriend cardigan is so wonderful.... And we shall see how my mom chic look or shall I say if I can construct it properly...

  3. I especially love Simplicity 2728! I also have love affairs with blazers, though I have yet to sew one! I think you are right, they can be great transition pieces. If you decide to sew one, remember the length of a blazer is key for body types! Good luck!

  4. Vanessa, Simplicity 2728 is a great pattern.... I have yet to sew as well, but I want to give it a go! Yeah, I like the crop length of blazers but we'll see!

  5. Great job on the FBA. I avoid them at all costs, but always find that it works out better than I thought, once I do go for it. It's more intimidating than difficult.

    Can't wait to see your progress.

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.

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…
