Lazy Saturday Sewing.....

Lazy Saturday Sewing...


  It's been such a relaxing day thus far, so I can't complain... I haven't sewn anything in two weeks y'all, but that's not to say that I haven't had the inspiration. I think sometimes for me, I get inspired by so many things that I actually get sewers block. Yeah, sewers block is a real condition y'all lol...


Love this leather baseball tee, but have y'all seen Adrienne's AMAZING!
 I think the biggest thing on my mind right now is LEATHER, I mean it is so heavy in the streets right now.. You don't have to go very far for inspiration for it either... It is everywhere, and I am lovin' it!  I've been hoarding 2 yards of faux leather, just waiting for the right project. I did cut out a peplum today, V8936; so hopefully I can review that soon.. I will get to that baseball tee, because I am jonesing for one of those tops.... Well, ladies I just wanted to share what I was working on this weekend.. You ladies have a wonderful weekend, as always: Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce..

  2. I'm the same way with too much inspiration (although I do love it) it paralyzes me because I can't make up my mind. What pattern do you plan on using for the baseball tee?

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.
