What's on my sewing table!


I have so many projects that I would like to get to, that it almost is overwhelming in a sense. Do you ever get overwhelmed by the things that you want to make? It's like I don't know what to get to first...
I think I have narrowed my next project down to M6611, this jacket is really trending right now which I just found out is refered to as a "cascading jacket"...You learn something new everyday they say..





You want to know the retail price of this jacket? 695.00 now that is cray-cray! Thank God for the ability to sew!
 Although, I secretly wish I had leather fabric, so that the sleeves and the peplum could be leather on the M6611. I think I just really need something leather, anything, hmmmm... the wheels are starting to turn lol.. However, back to M6611, I've read the reviews on this pattern and altered the pattern accordingly. I removed some of the ease from the sleeve cap; which I learned how to do reading "Gertie's new book"..Please and thank you! Gertie you rock girl in my book, pun intended HA! I also, added about 1 1/2 inches to the body pieces of the jacket for a little extra length, ahhh, the beauty in sewing!
 
  I don't know, I'm just really feeling the itch to sew a jacket of some sorts, not necessarily a coat, or do any heavy tailoring, but a simple jacket. I enjoyed the process so much when I made my first jacket earlier this year. That I thought it would be great for a refresher to refine somethings if you will...Also, I would love to try my hand at making some type of fur jacket thing..You all know my love, obsession with leopard print. I just so happen to have about 2 1/2 yards of faux leopard print that I purchased from fabric.com last year.  I really am loving this jacket too, decisions, decisions ijs...
 
I guess, I better get back to sewing! I hope to be done with M6611 this weekend, who am I kidding lol! Hopefully I can be done by next week, we shall see...As always, Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. I know exactly how you feel - I often have hundreds of projects spinning in my head at one time. Almost enough to make me hyperventilate. Love the jacket ideas that you have.

  3. I was at Macy's today and I saw a very cute cascade jacket made from a Chanel-type boucle. THe edges were raw, and it had a few Chanel details. It was a very cool interpretation.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Ah, yes, I know the feeling well! I mean, being overwhelmed by the possible-projects list. It only gets longer, and about 95% of it I never get around to, because there isn't time.

    The jacket looks really cool. I like it a lot.

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…

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 …
