Saturday morning chat!




  I hope you ladies are having a great start to your weekend. I don't have much planned today; however, yesterday was a full day of basketball games with the hubby and kids. I have two projects going on simultaneously. I don't know whats gotten into me, lol; as I never work on two projects at time. But you know what? It's been kind of fun to switch between the two, and work on whatever is grabbing my attention. I think I may have mentioned that I'm working on Burda 6829 for my anniversary next month. It's pretty much done, it just needs to be hemmed, but ain't nobody got time for that right?! LOL!

I made this in a winter for my birthday in February!


 I also am working on the new Cynthia Rowley pattern S1104. I was smitten with this pattern at first glance, but as I'm working on it; like I love it,right?! However, just note that this is pretty much a glorified peplum top, so if you're good with that, then it's all good! I'm good with it, just an observation,lol! The top has not been difficult, more so interesting I would say. It has some funky pattern pieces, but I think the pattern is enough to keep you interested, but not hard where you will lose interest, ya know?!
Also the top is lined, didn't know this :( and almost
couldn't get started right away, but I ended using lining
fabric leftover from one of my daughters dress,yay!


  You wanna know the crazy part? I sort of want to start yet another project, but to  my defense it's something to tie into the S1104 top,lol! I don't know what's gotten into me really, y'all, LOL! I'm going to try and get this top finished this weekend, pending my children get this memo too bahahahaha! So, what are y'all working on this weekend?

                                 ~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  3. Great pattern choices.
    I started the Burda pattern at the end of last month. I actually wore it unfinished but I really need to finish it so that I can wear it without being scared that it's gonna fall apart lool

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…
