It's my birthday today and Burda Style 6829

I didn't have time to hem my sleeves, it was time to roll; however,
I am so unbothered lol! I also made my crossover crossover a
little more, just my preference..


 Today is my birthday, yay! I love birthdays, I mean who doesn't love getting gifts, right?! I knew I had to have this dress ever since the pattern was released, and then when I saw Adrienne's version; I was sold!


 This dress comes together relatively quickly, other than the fact that I needed to underline my dress in tricot fabric due to my fabric being a light color.  I didn't have any difficulty constructing this pattern, but Lawd if I wasn't praying to be able to fit into this dress lol! I should have added a half inch at least at the waist, but my next version I definitely will. I made the 44 and added an inch to the hem as to make sure I had enough coverage when I sat down for the wrap part of the dress.

I'm glad that I added that underlining, yay, no show threw!

 
  Overall, I am really pleased with this dress. I loved how quickly this dress came together, even with having to underline the dress, which I underlined every dress piece, except for the sleeves. I am planning on cutting out another sooner rather than later, that is how much I love this dress :).

 Ladies, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am off to go and enjoy the rest of my day!

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…
