Butterick 5562 Again!

 This post will actually be quite short...Seeing, that this is my second go with this pattern and there are only three pattern pieces for this pattern...Yes, only three! My kinda of pattern, I tell you..... I made this top last weekend to wear to the movies with my hubby for our date night.... There's not a whole lot to tell about this pattern.. I did go down in sizing this time around to avoid the "Theo shirt" that occurred in my last shirt...I really wanted to get a good fit  so that I could wear the shirt..The previous shirt that I made, sorry to say has not made it out of this house :( so I really wanted to do this shirt over so that I could wear the top...

 I am in desperate need of some cute, wearable tops that can take me from the park with the boys or lunch with the hubby..And B5562 really fits the bill..... I decided to go with the medium this go around and I was able to achieve a better fitting top... So I am happy with that..I also stay stitched and used my twin needle to stitch the neckline and loved the overall look....

On Bella!
Sorry for the stiff pose! Trying to get used to my new tripod and

A cute and flirty top!

 I love, love these types of tops...I am seeing them everywhere and you all we be seeing a few more of these...That's all for now Divas! Be blessed and nothin' less!

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…
