Easy like Sunday morning.....Simplicity 1616 Review


   So, I had to have this skirt after I saw the one Adrienne made for her daughter... I was so glad that Joann's was having a pattern sale on Simplicity patterns, being that I didn't own this pattern...
Jessica Simpson wedges and my favorite nail polish of the moment :)
  This has simply has to be one of the easiest garments that I have EVER made. I mean I cut the fabric while on the phone with my girlfriend, and sewed it up while my boys ate breakfast.." Easy like Sunday morning"... The fabric is a knit that looks like denim that I purchased from Joann's last year. This skirt will definitely be in rotation, and I also have plans for a few more! Please don't judge me lol... Well ladies I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! I wish you a blessed week ahead, and as always: Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. Sure make more! I'll bet it will make a wonderful "I've got to get dressed to go out" on the spur of the moment skirt That skirt looks great on you and the fact that it's a denim looking knit - what could be better. Gives me an idea because I have a similar looking denim like knit in my stash that I was saving to make leggings. The easy Simplicity skirt sounds much better. No judgment here sister!

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…

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.



I al…
