A little of this and that!

 Hey y'all it's seems as if this pregnancy is flying by, yay! I am so ready to meet my baby girl and get my body back, yes I am! It's soooo many things that I want to get to, but this bump, I tell ya! Is something serious lol! Seeing that I am having my baby girl in the midst of summer I've kinda skipped right over summer and started planning for fall. Yep, fall lol! I been really getting into this shift dress movement, like I've been seeing some serious dresses that has my heart beating fast. For example this one:

This fitted sheath dress is the business, seriously!

I purchased this off last week. I was
leaning on it being a casual blouse, but now I thinking
a shift dress, we shall see!
   I have a few more pinned on my pintrest boards, but I've been seeing some great sheath dresses around blogs as well.  I picked up a few shift  dress patterns this weekend from Jo-Ann's during the Simplicity .99 sale.  Let's see what else have I been up to? Oh, yeah! I finally finished up my mama's maxi dress M6559 ,that should have only taken an hour took me a month to finish!  I know lol! I'm pregnant and moving slow, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol! I've also caught the baby sewing bug, and can I say that I am hooked! Like somebody stage an intervention hooked, lol! I've almost finished my princess first little dress; it is just darling, and I have several others planned...
I've actually been on pattern frenzy here lately, must slow down lol!
My little princess first dress, look at how little the pattern
pieces are, awwwww!

 I think after I finish up with my little princess dresses, than I will move on to blazers, yes, blazers in the summer time honey, but for fall! Because remember I am skipping over summer sewing, and moving right along, yes I am! I purchased this beautiful cobalt blue suiting while my mama was here visiting and I plan to make M6711; however, I will muslin it out to make sure I like it before cutting into my beautiful cobalt blue fabric. Well, that's all I have for now ladies! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!


  1. I'm glad your pregnancy is going well. I don't think you should totally skip over summer. You deserve to make yourself at least one summer frock! After all you might be pregnant but you can still be FABULOUS!

  2. Thanks Diva! I'm trying to convince myself to make something for myself for mother's day, we shall see how that goes, lol!

  3. what number is the new look shift dress pattern? TIA.

    1. Toni, I believe it's New Look 6145..

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…
