Vogue 8604!


I've had these pants finished for about a month now, but I am just now getting around to reviewing them. This is a very easy vogue pattern as given the rating per the Vogue pattern.  If my memory serves me correctly there were only two or three pieces; however, I am much too comfortable at the moment to go and check the pattern. Just trust me on this one, it's EASY! I made these pants up at the same time that I was jonesing for the clover pattern from Colette patterns. I have since purchased that pattern and have made two muslins, so hopefully I will have them complete in the near future.


Oh yeah! The hair,nope didn't cut it! Just having a little girly fun!

So, I used a poly- blend fabric from fabric mart fabrics. I opted to use an invisible zipper instead of  a regular zipper, that's all that I had on hand, and I love the smooth lines anyhow... I added 2 1/2 inches in length to able to wear this with heels and hem the pants the allotted length per the instructions. Umm, I believe that is it in terms of alterations, so to speak. I love the look of high waisted pants and skirts, but I am unsure if this is a look that I am most comfortable in... I guess because I never wear my shirts tucked in unless I have a cardigan or jacket, or in this case a vest on! I dunno, I guess I'm just crazy like that lol!

Paired with my vest from F21 and red top and my leopard print flats that my two year refers to as "mommy's cat shoes"!

I know you are probably saying, we want to see the back! Well, you can't because I didn't have my helper home to zip me all the way up to the top! Men, what would we do without them, right! But you are in luck I did happen to take pictures of the back just in case you were interested!


The back of the pants!

The pocket lining is left over lining from V8679 jacket!*side note* I will make sure
to understitch the pocket lining to the pants to prevent pocket gaping!

 Well, that's all for now! I'm trying to decide what I will work on this weekend, since this is a long weekend! What are your plans for the weekend sewing wise, or will you be taking it easy? I am undecided myself, so will see! Divas, be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!


  1. You got a lot of style for an *easy* pattern! Don't you love it?
    I like the wild fabric for the pocket bags.

  2. Love the whole outfit and the hair is very attractive. You're keepin me inspired!

    1. Thanks GodsgirlT! Just having a little fun, shakin' things up a bit!

  3. You did a nice job with these pants, Candice! I like the ruffled vest with this!

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.

I al…

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…
