Simplicity 3711

My little love is 6 months now, yay!
Sigh, I'm so in love :)

 Okay, I know the last post I was talking about sewing a shirt, which I have; I just need to review it.. I actually had this robe done since last year. I made it a month before my little love was born, but I had to wait until my little love could model the robe...This a Simplicity pattern S3711, I would link it but the Simplicity site is moving slow, ugh! Have you all noticed this problem recently with their site? This was a very simple pattern to put together, the only issue I had was lining the hood. I'm not sure if was due to my pregnancy brain at the time, or the pattern. I'm sure it was just me, as no one mentioned this issue.. This fabric may look familiar, it was the fabric my mama used in making her first project on for my niecy pooh!
My little love can sit up now all by herself!

  There's not much I can say about this pattern, other than I would highly recommend this pattern. I think it would be great for baby showers, birthday presents etc... The only thing that I didn't like was all the extra STUFF to be added, such as, the applique, ric-rac and so forth, but you can easily leave those things off if that's your preference. I loved that it is fully lined, it makes for such a polished little robe. You will have to add in your own belt loops if you want them, as the pattern does not come with those, but again that is an easy adjustment. Overall, this was a great pattern, and my little love looks so darn cute in her little robe! I shall be back later with photos of my button down blouse.. Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce! And one more pic for the road of my little lady and I  :)!


  1. You are both so beautiful! That is the sweetest little robe, if I ever did see one! Happy 6 months!!

  2. You and your little one are both beautiful especially the eyes. I need to make myself a robe. Don't know when that's gonna happen. TFS

  3. What a little cutie pie! She looks so "grown up" in her little robe. My 6 yo recently asked for one. I just got the pattern. Forgot kids could wear robes! LOL!

  4. She is lovely, and looks so happy! You are a lucky Mommy.

    And yes, I have noticed the Simplicity site is slow, I was thinking it was my 'puter, thanks so much for mentioning it has been happening to you too!

  5. She is so beautiful Candice. What is her name? I can't believe she has gotten so big so fast.

  6. Your daughter is adorable, Candice.

    As for the Simplicity site, I gave up on that foolishness years ago. If you need to link a pattern, use Pattern Review or Google the pattern number. This is how I find pictures. I try to credit pictures that I lift from other blogs.

    1. Thank you L, and thanks for the tip!

  7. One word...ah-dore-able. But you knew that! The fabric is for this little robe is purrfect! Sew girly! Great mommy/daughter shot too! She is such a cutie!

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.

I al…

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…
