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.
Love each and one of these ladies, seriously!



 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 and had a bit of gaping in the bodice, but it's all good! I'm still going to rock it, that is until it becomes too big to wear it.



Left to right: My machine stitched hem, sure did! LOL! Didn't feel like hand sewing a hem, #sorrynotsorry Top right, zipper, bottom left outside of the zipper and the bottom right an inside shot
 I used an 18 (pattern size, not clothing size for my newbies that follow my blog) for the jumpsuit but thinking that I could have used the size 16 and made an FBA for the bodice, as I had a bit of gaping along the side without the strap.


For the fabric, I used an African wax print that I purchased from Mood Fabrics. I first saw Erica B. use this fabric and thought it was hot! Y'all this fabric is fiyah, seriously!  There wasn't anything tricky with this pattern. I would suggest however if you are 5'7 and over, I'm 5'8 for reference to maybe consider lengthening the crotch area. I only lengthened it 5/8 inch I believe and probably should have lengthened it a 1/2 inch or little more, so just tissue fit to be sure.




  Overall, I enjoyed making this pattern as it really does come together really quickly and for someone with a short attention span these days. I need something quick and to the point and cute, lol! I'm not sure what the next project will be, but I do know that it will be something that I need and will actually wear. I'm thinking a pair of jeans or a jacket, but we will see! That's all I have for now! I am wishing you all a Happy Holiday filled with peace and love!

                ~As Always, Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fiercely fierce!

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.

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…
