Review: M6458

My two heartbeats :)
    So, I won't tell you how long these M6458 pajamas have been languishing in my sewing room. Let's just say according to the husband, "He's surprised that they still fit!" LOL... What can I say? I am a selfish seamstress, yes even with my love bugs:)...  This was my first time sewing a button down shirt of any kind, which I find to be odd, seeing that I have sewn at least three jackets. But never had I sewn a button shirt, hmmph... I'm intrigued now to say in the least, so much so that I am finally going to tackle that craftsy course on shirt making. I can't be the only one that buys these courses, and then take forevah to use them!


Excuse the thread this was hot off the sewing machine!
  Okay back to the pajamas! My boys are so fascinated with transformers, like seriously it is not a game lol! I have to say that the instructions for the top were fantastic!  I even made one shirt with piping, which was a first for this technique and it went in without a hitch! I didn't notice within the instructions that they required a lot of hand stitching and I'm sorry but I'm really not about that life HA! Other than obscene amount of hand stitching required for this top, this would really be a great pattern to get your feet wet in sewing shirts/blouses..
first time adding piping...
  I purchased this flannel fabric from fabric.com several months back ,and had to purchase two additional yards after I realized that I needed to lengthen the pattern for my oldest son.. Thankfully they had more, whew! The bottoms were your typical pajama bottoms, no need to read the instructions there.. I also purchased the piping and buttons at my local JoAnn's.. Although it took me a minute to finish, not because this was a difficult project, in fact it was extremely easy. I now know that I am a selfish seamstress and I embrace that, yes I said "embrace"! LOL.. Oh, before I get out of here let me post a recent pic of my little bit, who is two months as of yesterday...
 
My heartbeat....

 Well, ladies I hope you have wonderful week ahead! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue stay fearlessly fierce!

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…
