McCall's 6070 again!

Hey lovely Divas! I am going to keep this post simple and sweet. I first reviewed this pattern sometime last year. I no longer have the first dress, because it was terrible and terribly made, but we all have to start somewhere. I have to thank you all for encouraging me then, to keep sewing.. Because looking at the midriff from last year, and Baaaaaby, it was all kinds of wrong.. But you Divas encouraged me nonetheless, so to that, I say thank you!

 My review from last year still holds true, this pattern is really, really easy.. I made a straight 14, and I absolutely loved the elastic in the sleeves, to give that gathered look. I also loved the back, and that it wasn't too low, that I could still wear a regular bra with this dress. I only made one alteration if that's what you want to call it, and that was not to add the elastic in the waist area. As I didn't find it necessary... This is my last summer dress for the season, and I know I said that for V1179 but I really wanted a new dress for friendship festival today on base...And that's just where we say thank you to our host country....


 I tried to get the boys to put up their
 peace signs as the Japanese do when posing for pics,
but um, no such luck with my two lol!

So, here are a few pictures from today at friendship festival on base! The dress wore very well, and I was comfortable all day, so I probably will make this next summer. As this only took about a day or two to make.
The American food vendors, giving our host country a taste
of our American cuisine..
               Divas, as always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to be fearlessly fierce!

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.

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 …

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…
