Simplicity 1613 and my moms mother's day dress!

Simplicity 1613 paired with V8711



 Happy Mother's day weekend to everyone who bares the title one of life's greatest jobs! I have started my celebration early, with fabric shopping of course,lol! I stopped by Hancock's yesterday and picked up a few Buttericks, but boo, they didn't have the new ones in yet! Okay, so I know that said that I was going to possibly make S3503, but you see S1613 was calling my name,lol! Simplicity 1613 is such a fun pattern, with plenty of choices to chose from:

I made view D, but without the armband things, not
sure what those would be called :)


Yes, I am slightly addicted to
black and white stripes, lol!

  This top comes together so quickly, and is just what is needed right now, seeing that life has been so hectic for me lately. I added an 1" to the front and back pieces. I used the elastic;however, I need to go back in and make it a touch longer, to stop it from bunching up a bit. I'm glad to have finally gotten this pattern made up, as it's such a cute pattern.. I planned to wear it to lunch today, to kick off my Mother's day weekend. And speaking of Mother's day, my mama received her dress this week, and she loves it! 
I made M6559 for my mama again, the pattern was prepped and
it was a quick and easy sew!





                                               Well, ladies I hope you have a great weekend! 
                                          
                                        ~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly
                                                                            fierce!

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…

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.



I al…
