What's on the sewing table...

Love every version on here..

  It's no doubt that fall is slowly creeping it's way in, and the summer heat is slowly fading*praise break* lol! Fall happens to be my favorite season of the year, with its cool breeze, and pretty leaves and the end to the heat (here's another chance to get your praise on lol) *praise break* lol... I really have no tolerance for the summer heat ijs... Like most seamstresses I've been thinking about what I want to make this season, and one thing on my list has been a sleeveless blazer.. I've been seeing them everywhere from stores to fashion magazines, celebrities, and so I had to have one too!

 So, of course I set out to make my own sleeveless blazer; especially since I realized I owned the perfect pattern to make my own  blazer. I started working on this blazer last week, and I assumed that since this an unlined sleeveless blazer that this would be a fairly quick sew, right? WRONG! Everything was moving in the right direction until I got to the collar, and that's when "all hell broke loose".. LOL! It worked itself out in the end when I finally decided to read the instructions hehe! I love the fabric that I chose, which is some type of faux suede fabric that I purchased from fabricmart maybe two years ago. I am glad that this did not turn into a wadder, whew! Sweet baby Jesus! I would have been HOT!!
Here it is un-pressed, needing button holes, buttons,
armhole bindings, hems, deep sigh

  Well, ladies I'm off to work some more on this blazer, hopefully I will have a finished garment soon.. Have a wonderful week ladies! Be Blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

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…

Not singing the blues, but lovin' this chambray blue dress: Simplicity 1059 Review

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 …
