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!

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…
