What's happening and what nots!



    So my little people are out of school next week for the Thanksgiving holiday. So knowing this would free up a little of my time, I decided to get a few things cut out, and even managed to complete a shirt,well almost.. I started on B5678 sometime last week. And for me shirts is one piece of clothing that I must continue to practice. Shirt making is not hard in essence but everything is so precise, ya know?!


I made view D minus the pockets. I'd planned to put the pockets on, and I did; however, they came out horrid, simply horrid! The pockets to me just looked too big, but on others who've reviewed this pattern they looked great! So I'm sure there was operator error there on my part, sigh.. All that's left to do is the button holes and buttons and of course a good pressing is in need...

Here's a sneaky peak:My topstitching
is not perfect but I'll somehow manage
to live LOL!

  Yesterday I was in the cutting mood, when does that ever happen, right?! That is the worst part of sewing to me, geesh! Well, like I was saying I was in the cutting mood yesterday, and I also managed to get V8927 cut out woo hoo!




  I cut out view F in the Vogue 8927 pattern. I did alter the pattern as to shorten it a bit, but we'll chat again about this pattern once this project gets going hopefully.. I know that I said last time that I was going to start on V8958 once I received my interfacing, which I have; however, I have shirts on the brain. I really need more tops and I'm trying to be a responsible seamstress here and sew more of what I need, than what I want boo hoo LOL! And speaking of more of what I need, right?! I've received a few pretties this month, and nope I don't feel no ways guilty bahahaha!  I am giving back to our economy, yep that's my story and I'm sticking to it lol!
This cobalt blue suiting on the left is everything, everything! It's from
Fabricmart (SKU: BKC2422G) and it is gawjus, don't say I didn't warn you!

 Whew, this post is getting long! I guess I better get crackin' on these shirts so that I can get to sew up some of my pretties that came in.. What are y'all working on this weekend? Anyone planning to hit the Jo-Ann's sale for the Butterick and Vogue sale? I know there are four patterns, two from each that I want. I better get my list ready... I hope you ladies have a wonderful weekend!

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.

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…
