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!

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 …

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…

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…
