What I'm working on!

 Trying to get in my zone and crank this dress out, while the sun is shining and the feeling of Spring is in the air..Whew, hopefully it's here to stay! I've decided on this fabric, which is a poly-charmeuse purchased last year from Fabric Mart. It really is a gorgeous piece of fabric and goes right along with the floral trend this season..

I have cut the pattern and the fabric out already now I just the motivation HA!

 As I posted in my last post. I need to finish up S2512, but now I am not feeling the skirt, it looks a bit twee to me. I dunno, we'll see! I'm still going to wear it , because I don't want to waste fabric. I do think I would have preferred a more sophisticated print(check me out sounding all 30ish) LOL... And on top of the fabric not being my favorite print right now, I lost my invisible zipper foot. Yeah, I know right! So, I had to put that bad boy in with my regular zipper foot, and guess what? It went in without a hitch, almost dare to say a little easier...So take that you little fairies that magically take my sewing notions lol...  Oh, yeah and to add to my adult ADD I just received my order from the recent BMV sale :)
Pattern love right here lol!

Well, let me get back to this machine ladies! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce! 


  1. I like what you are working on right now! I also like S2512! BTW, you made an absolutely fabulous red dress for the Patternreview red dress contest, and I voted for you! It caught me by surprise because I never remember seeing it on your blog, but it was super, and I just had to tell you!!!

  2. Awwww, Vanessa! You are sooooo sweet, and thanks so much for voting for me...

  3. Great fabric for that pattern, I made it two years ago... but since I was still unsure about how to get a perfect fit I barely wore it. Just may need to pull it out and give it a little run.

  4. Hey! I have that fabric too! And apparently a lot of the same patterns you have :) I just wanted to say I enjoy your blog posts, and look forward to them, cant wait to see how the dress turns out!

    1. Hey Alexandrea! How cool is that! I guess its true great Divas do think a like lol! Thanks for stopping by!

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…
