Got shirts on the brain



  So, I've haven't gotten anything finished to show today, although I've finished another M6957. I just wasn't able to get any pictures of the latest version. I have been busy in my sewing room this week, and I really seem to have blouses on the brain, like really tough! I'm quite glad, especially since that I really need to amp my wardrobe up in this area with simple button down blouses. I think they are a great way to build your  wardrobe, while helping you feel put together.

  I've been working on B5786, view "C", except that I chose to add the collar with the collar stand. This is truly a great pattern if you are new to making shirts, which I am, but with a little common knowledge you can produce a great shirt. I do think that this blouse runs a little on the small side and thought, hmm that maybe that it was just be me; however, another reviewer noted this on PR as well.. It's not small in that it is unwearable, but one or two cheeseburgers and I'm done, bahahaha!


I'm making view "C" but using the collar from B, and D


 The shirt is almost complete, it just needs buttonholes and buttons, which I will pick up tomorrow once I go get a few patterns that I don't need, right?! I do have two or three patterns right now that I'm thinking of next, which are all shirt patterns, since I'm in that mode... I'm thinking of these patterns next:
I love all the views on this one B5678


I really love this pattern, and have seen some really
awesome reviews of this in blog land.. Lori's 
version, oh my word, it's beautiful!

We are not going to discuss this unfortunate fabric
choice, but the pattern is nice.. 

  Well, ladies I'll be back shortly hopefully with some finished garments to show! Have a great weekend everyone!   Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. I like all your shirt picks! B5678 is NICE...I don't recall seeing it, but that one will make a great shirt for sure. And Lori's shirt is awesome! I think it's good that you made another M6957. If it's not broke, don't fix it! I liked your last version, can't wait to see this one!

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.

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 …

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…
