Vogue 8927

Love the relaxed fit of this blouse..
 
 
 This pattern Vogue 8927 was released last year some time; I do believe. I actually cut this pattern out last year, but was too intimidated to sew it up. Fast forward to this year  where I have a few shirts under my belt this year, so I was all too excited to finally get to this pattern that I cut out last year.

  Now this is your pretty standard, basic button down blouse, which makes for a pretty great candidate in beginner shirt making 101..This pattern is a very loose-fitting blouse, which makes for a very relaxed fit. I made an 18 throughout the entire shirt, and really loved the relax fit.  I used a cotton sateen that I purchased eons ago.I made view E; however, I shortened it 2 inches and borrowed the tabs from view D. By shortening the pattern, this caused me to have to readjust the button positioning, but this was an easy adjustment.

  Oh but let's get into this ridiculousness , plain ridiculous lol, shall we!  I do not understand why patterns sometimes have the most ridiculous amount of ease in the sleeve caps. The sleeves in this pattern were drafted with way too much ease. I was so close to just scrapping the entire thing;I was all too annoyed, and nobody has time for that, right?!. I also really struggled with the top-stitching on the front bands, now that was my issue. I really need to work on this, but I found using my edge-stitching  foot produced the better results.
Top left:Front button band with buttons, top right: Inside collar
Bottom left:Collar, and bottom right :sleeve cuff
 
 


  After struggling with those irritating sleeves, everything else was a breeze! I highly recommend Pam Howard's class on Craftsy, if that is a platform in which you like to learn. I know it's not everyone's thing, but I truly enjoyed it.   So, even though I struggled with some parts of making this shirt. I still really do love it! Now, will I make this particular pattern again? No way! It's way too many patterns to be dealing with the sleeve issues. As a matter of fact, I getting ready to start on B5526.

Thanks to Toy for posting about this pattern on her blog,
and bringing this pattern to my attention. B5526.

I probably won't start on this pattern until next week sometime, as to enjoy this last little bit of time with my little people before they go back to school. I hope you all have a Happy New Year, and I'll see you in 2015!

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…
