On the move!

        My family and I are up for orders, well actually we have them and will be moving to the great state of Texas! I've never lived in Texas, and surprisingly have never visited there either for that matter.. Like with any move in the military, it's all what you make it to be, so this should be a new fun filled adventure for my little family!

  On the sewing front I have, or just started to sew my V-day dress shhh! Don't even say it lol! But to my defense my entire household excluding the hubby was sick with the flu all last week, so that meant no sewing going on here...I am hoping to get this little dressed whipped by tomorrow which is V-day and then my B-day the most important for us ladies! Well, just wanted to stop in quickly, but hopefully this week I  will have garment to post! Be blessed Divas!

  1. Hi there, I've been to San Angelo, San Antonio, and Dallas. I had a great time visiting them all! The American Sewing Guild's headquarters is in Houston!

    Hope you have a great Valentine's Day and a wonderful birthday!

  2. Before we got stationed here 8 years ago I had only been for basic training and tech school...hence I was not in any hurry to return. Surprisingly, it has turned out to be a wonderful assignment for us and we have shockingly decided to retire here. Luckily we are located close to the DFW metroplex and that has made a huge difference for us. Have a great B-Day!

  4. So are you excited about moving back to the states? And when do you return? I think it's cool that you will be back on the same continent again as most of us crazy sewing people!

  6. I hope your move goes well Candice! My dad is a retired army man, and I remember the excitement of picking up, moving, and starting anew! I still sometimes turn to the hubby and say, "Wanna go visit somewhere new?" That's the only way I can satisfy my need for variety since I don't move every 4 years anymore!! LOL! Happy birthday to you, and I know your dress will be perfect ; )

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…

Not singing the blues, but lovin' this chambray blue dress: Simplicity 1059 Review

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 …
