The little princess modeling S1701

My sweet little girl in S1701
   I couldn't wait until my little princess was born, so that she could wear her first dress made by mommy! I reviewed this dress pattern sometime in May, which you can read about here. I will say that the pattern size I chose was an XXS for a size up to 7 pounds. However, the dress is a little big, but she should be able to fit the dress properly within a month or so. So for me the pattern does seem to run a little large, as tends to be the norm in the big 4 patterns. This still for me does not take away for me that this is a great little pattern, that can lead to so many various options for you little girls...
 
  On the sewing front I have been sewing, but just for the kiddos so far! However, that is going to change, because I am so ready to make some garments for myself, just anything lol..... 9 months of really no sewing other than here and there and I am ready to combust lol.. So, I am going to steal away little time to gather patterns and see where that may lead me, we shall see... Well, ladies I hope you all will have a wonderful safe weekend! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  7. Sewing for little girls is the MOST fun! I started sewing a few months before my now 6 year old daughter was born, and I get the biggest kick out of making her stuff.

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.

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 …

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…
