New McCall's and what's on my list


  There seems to be some great buzz going around about the new McCall's patterns that was released recently. I myself, am really digging this collection. There's just some really great patterns that I can't wait to pick up at the next pattern sale. Let's get into what will be on my list at the next McCall's sale, shall we: First up is M7099, I know some people don't feel the love with jumpsuits and all, but man y'all this is everything! This pattern looks chic and sophisticated, and the model is seriously selling this pattern.

  My second pick is M7094, and I purposely added the picture of the back, because when I first saw the back; I literally screamed, yesss GAWD(true story) lol! I mean, life had been given with this pattern. I love an understated sexy, ya know?! And to me this is what this pattern is giving, an understated sexy...

 Okay, so moving right along, my third pick is  M7100: This is a little reminiscent of a very popular indie pattern that's out; however, I say there is nothing new under the sun, so I will be saving my coins and purchasing this one. I will say, that I'd wished they would have included a lining for this jacket, but that's ok!

 I also would like to pick up M7098. I know that this is a simple trouser/pant pattern, but I still like it! McCall's did a fantastic job with the styling on most of these garments imho...

  And the last one on my must have list is M7085: I love that this pattern is drafted for a woven instead of a knit. I think we have enough  knit patterns dresses imo(Love knits, but excited for this woven pattern). I love the different neckline variations, and can't wait to see what others come up with, with this pattern.

 Now, I  do have one more pattern that I quite like, but I am unsure if  it's my jush (my thing). For instance, M7084, I love this but don't know if it's me; therefore, this is one that I will wait for reviews before purchasing.

 *Oooh, I totally forgot my little bit, the little lady that runs the men in this house, LOL! I am so getting my pretty girl the M7074 dress. I love, love this dress! I love the color block options on this one.
M7074
  Overall, I am singing McCall's praises on this one. This is a great collection, one in which has me even more excited for Spring. If you haven't, go and checkout the entire collection, and I'm sure you will find something that you fancy. I just wanted to highlight my favorites, so I didn't post all of the new collection. I guess I better get back to putting on the buttons on this shirt, will be back soon y'all!

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…
