                   Just wanted to share a few pictures from the Mikoshi Parade 2010 on base today! It was really a great experience for my entire family...Besides, the cultural parade  there were food vendors selling American food with a Japanese twist.....There were picnic areas for you to enjoy the wonderful  food,  parade and meet some of our host country natives....So in all it was a very relaxing day! But in sewing news I am almost done with Butterick 5249 and hope to be reviewing that soon for you Divas....As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!

McCall's 6070 Finished!!!!

       I have finally finished McCall's 6070...The dress construction is not hard, even for a beginner such as myself...The directions were fairly good overall. I think it took so long for me to complete the dress, because  simply I am not in love with the fabric as I stated in a previous post....Oh well ,I could always wear this dress as a house dress,especially when you do not want to be in sweats or pj's all day...The only alteration I did to the dress was to not add the elastic waist casing, seeing that this dress was for in the house casual wear.I didn't feel I needed it. I will note that the dress is extremely comfortable, so although I am not fond of the fabric.I am however in love with the comfort of this dress! So in all I am glad that I finished and completed another garment, but now I am ready to get to the meat and potatoes (zippers, buttonholes, linings) lol wish me the best Divas!   As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!

Fabric shopping in Japan!!!!


       

We celebrated Labor Day weekend yesterday, which, was Monday for us in Japan...My hubby was off so I decided to go shopping at a store called Livin's...Similar to a Walmart back in the states...Oh how I miss my Wally World lol...Okay, as I was browsing, lo and behold I found a fabric shop..I hit the jacket pot, at least I did; however, not too sure about the hubby's wallet though lol...I tried to take plenty of pictures of some of the fabric.It was a little small, and the prices seemed to be pretty high or maybe I am just used to Fabric.com Everyting seem to be priced at or around 12-14yen...So here are couple of pics hope you enjoy!

I caved in and ordered a serger!!!!

    Well, up into now I never needed a serger or actually understood all that comes with serging. And to be quite honest I still don't lol... I just know that I am finally making garments( instead of making ghastly, unwearable, unrecognizable items lol) so I would like the insides to look great just as well... I know that I will be asking you Divas for help and I will  have  plenty of concerns....

I guess I am growing up or maturing in my sewing. Seriously up into now, I would just leave my insides looking a hot mess lol...But to my defense I was concentrating more on learning how to read the directions and decipher the diagrams...I feel that I am getting a better concept and actually making garments now, so I want my garments to look as RTW or better! Well, the serger I purchased is the Brother 1034D 3/4 on sale for 193.54 and FREE shipping!!!! Well, as always Divas be blessed and nothin' less!
