Saturday updates..

 It's been three weeks already? My how times flies! I guess time waits for no one, right? Well, I have  to say that I have been sewing and ordering fabrics, and patterns and more patterns(I love patterns). I've been like so many of you sewist trying to get my "Spring Board" together. I believe I've been hit by the floral bug. I dunno but I am in like love with florals this season, and it doesn't help that I've been seeing that trend everywhere lately. 

I ordered fabric for this dress of course floral. I am hoping to get that effect that I have envisioned in my mind, instead what in the heck was she thinking lol!

Now I love the pants, but I don't believe I have enough guts to pair the two together although I know there are some
Divas who could totally rock the combo together and look fierce! 
  It's the rainy season here in Japan, and to boot it is still freezing! Hopefully, soon it will warm up and the sun will shine, so that  I can get photos of some of the items I have started for my Spring sewing. I have just about completed S2512 a skirt and now probably within a day or two hope to have B5211 finished.  Just looking for a couple of quick sews sometimes you know! Well, Divas that's all for now enjoy your weekend! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!


  1. Thanks for letting me know that florals are in!! I think the styles you picked are cute, and will work well with the pattern you've chosen. Looking forward to seeing it come together!

  2. Thanks Vanessa! I'm loving this seasons floral trend...

  3. Some of those prints are gorgeous... but the pants at the bottom remind me of a pair that I had in high school. My, does that make me feel old!

    1. I agree meli88a that some of the prints are gorgeous! I've never that I can remember had pair of floral pants, but think I would wear them now!

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 …
