The 1 hour top M6400!

I was freezing out here trying to get a good picture for my Divas!
Can you see my hair is doing some serious blowing in the wind!
The red pants are V8751 reviewed here!

    This top took all of an hour, seriously! When I went to cut out the pattern pieces and realized that there were only ONE pattern piece for view B.. I started laughing in hysterics lol! I just couldn't believe it... This has to be one of the easiest patterns I have ever made to date, if you are looking for something fast, quick, and in hurry that still gives that Diva look make this top!

Hair still blowing! I told you it was cold....

I had this striped fabric in my stash from for over a year now, and didn't know what to do with it, or if I had the skill to match up the stripes properly.. I was really more concerned with the stripes matching on the side and I must say I was pretty successful*winning*... Sorry, I didn't take pictures of the side, but it was COLD, so please forgive me lovelies!

 I made a medium as I wanted a more fitted top, close to what the model on the cover is wearing. I didn't bother hemming the sleeves, or the bottom just didn't feel it was needed; however, I did hem the neckline! And with the neckline I noticed that if I make another version I will stabilize the neckline...Other than that it is a pretty straight forward top! In other news, I have a pair pants that need to be reviewed so be on the lookout for that!  It has been working out great with sewing only what I am feeling, as I have not felt fatigued or burnout! Well Divas that's all for now! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!


  1. Cute top! The stripes show off the draping, nice.

  2. This top looks great on you and I like how you paired it up with the red pants. It gives the outfit a nice pop of color. I just saw your first jacket as well in your last post. Beautiful job.

  3. Andrea, thank you soooooo much!

  4. What a nice top! I would have laughed hysterically over one pattern piece, too. Only in my dreams could I find a pattern with one pattern piece..or if I made top M6400!!

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 …

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…

Happy New Year y'all! It's a new year, full of new possibilities. In looking back on 2016,I must say that I really had a great year, introspectively speaking.

 In 2016, I really embraced all of who I am; learned more about myself and being okay with that! I say being being okay with that, simply because, we tend to allow ourselves to be boxed in, or we allow others to box us into their mold of who we should be according to their perception of us.

2016 taught me, that it's quite okay if you don't fit in a box, that truly being "Fearlessly Fierce"  ,  means to walk in "YOUR PURPOSE"! 
 For instance, I/you, may never be a seamstress that plays by the rules, making a muslin until you get the perfected fit or have the most couture finishes. 
 That's okay too! 2017, I plan to walk even more fearless in my purpose, in whatever capacity that it may be  for me..

 I am wishing each and everyone of you a wonderful and prosperous New Year. I hope that this …
