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!

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 …

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…

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…
