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!!

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…
