What to sew!



   I've been having a little sewing ADD lately, seriously! I would be all settled on what I wanted to sew, only to have a change of heart. I really have a tendency to over think every little thing :). Well, I gathered my thoughts together and finally decided on what to make, geesh!  But before I talk about that, let's talk about everything that I want to make lol! Because let's face it that how sewing ADD works, right?!

 I know y'all have seen this pattern, created by Heather Lou at closetcasefiles, but this pattern is seriously everything, like EVERYTHING! I've never made jeans before, but that is going to have to change soon! I  also have been craving a LBD, yes a little black dress, why you ask?  Because I have sewers ADD LOL! I mean every girl needs a LBD in there closet, right?! Well, I'm leaning towards Simplicity 2648, I'm not sure if this dress is still even in print, but I still love it...This is definitely a must make, even if it's more jacket season now :)

                       

 Speaking of jackets, I recently just made a muslin of V8958. I loved this pattern from the moment is was released last year, was it last year? But anywho I love it nonetheless! The fit was good other than needing to add an inch to the body of the jacket. I'm  making view B, so while I like the crop version, I want to ensure that it's not too short, ya know!




  I almost forgot the project that I'm working on now,  V8776 which is now sadly OPP. However you can still find this pattern. I told y'all sewer ADD is real y'all LOL! I'm just about done it just needs to be hemmed, which per the pattern is by machine;  can I get an AMEN lol! This pattern calls for so much hand-sewing, geesh! Hopefully, I can get that up on the blog soon! Alright y'all I shall be back soon with something to show fingers crossed!

  1. The Ginger Jeans looks like a nice pattern for making jeans! I've never seen that one before.

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…
