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

It's a ruffle kinda of season :Vogue 9243

Guys have you ever started a project, and were quite excited to make the garment, but halfway through finishing, you suddenly lose interest? Well, that was my story. I have never been so ready to call a garment done in my life,lol.


This pattern is seriously not hard at all, technique wise, that is. I mean, once you get over having to hem those four flounces if you do the view that I made, which is view F. However,  I'm just kinda of meh about this project. I  think because I loved McCall's 7542 so much, and was hoping the same for this top too, but nope!



 The neckline on this one is enormously large! I didn't catch this when I tissue fitted the pattern, but I have been more diligent in exercising and eating better, so I don't know; maybe I lost a few pounds, which could have caused the neckline to be large. However, if you look closely at the model on the cover, it looks to be a little large on the model's neckline as well, so something to note.



 Let's get …

I'm just here for the sleeves: M7542

It's no secret, that these sleeves are in everywhere now days! I'm mean, I'm just here for the sleeves myself,lol.

 I loved this pattern at first glance, and I even loved all of the other views that were accompanied within the pattern. I don't think that has every happened for me, now that I  think about it.


 Now looking over the instructions prior to starting this project, I was fairly confident that everything was going to be a breeze, and they were for the most part( however comma) (yes I had to write it out because I would totally say this in real life, lol!)

However, those darn sleeves gave me a run for my money, well not the sleeve itself, but the hem!




 I'm no rookie when it comes to hemming curved hems, or so I thought, because every method I tried was basically like, nope, try again, LOL! 
 After what seemed like an eternity and having to re-cut out an entirely different flounce, I was able to get a decent hem on the flounce of the sleeve. I just used Mc…

Not singing the blues, but lovin' this chambray blue dress: Simplicity 1059 Review

Happy New Year y'all! It's a new year, full of new possibilities. In looking back on 2016,I must say that I really had a great year, introspectively speaking.

 In 2016, I really embraced all of who I am; learned more about myself and being okay with that! I say being being okay with that, simply because, we tend to allow ourselves to be boxed in, or we allow others to box us into their mold of who we should be according to their perception of us.





2016 taught me, that it's quite okay if you don't fit in a box, that truly being "Fearlessly Fierce"  ,  means to walk in "YOUR PURPOSE"! 
 For instance, I/you, may never be a seamstress that plays by the rules, making a muslin until you get the perfected fit or have the most couture finishes. 
 That's okay too! 2017, I plan to walk even more fearless in my purpose, in whatever capacity that it may be  for me..


 I am wishing each and everyone of you a wonderful and prosperous New Year. I hope that this …
