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.

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.



I al…
