The sewing mojo is slowly coming back!

       Well, the sewing mojo is finally creeping back slowly but surely.. I have completed M6164, well everything but the hem that is. I also have knocked out B4789 minus the hem, which was a joy to work on! I think it may have even helped in bringing back my sewing mojo.. So, now I have my Thanksgiving dress completed woo hoo! I am so thankful, because just this time last year I wanted to wear my new dress that I had sewn V1027 (which I need to redo BTW) However, I had butchered the hem beyond recognition :(

 I am trying to play catch up and get back into my sewing and blogging groove, because I really do love the sewing community... I have two garments on my dress form (Bella) at the moment B4789 and M6164 lol..

I need to hem the sleeves of the dress B4789 and hem
the neck line for M6164 what joy lol! Oh, and this is before
I sewed the front of the dress to the back hence the pins holding
the dress to the dress form :)

  In other news, my hubby's Naval command Christmas party is coming up, and so that means a new dress is in order. I just have to sew one! Especially, since the hubby had his suit made in Korea when the ship was there this year... I was originally planning to make V8574  ,but realized that I did not have the right length zipper in the color that I needed, nor did I have time to order one*sigh*....So, then I had to think fast to what patterns I had in stash that would accommodate the fabric that had already been purchased a few months ago... That was not an easy task I tell ya!

                                          Okay, so I narrowed down the patterns to:

I really love this dress, but
the hubby didn't see the vision! I
should have probably showed him the fierceness!
I was thinking about view c with the three quarter sleeves!

       I love this dress it's flirty without being over the top
       and I saw another blogger post about this dress and
her version is absolutely positively gorgeous!

And I think we have a winner!!!!! I think I am going to
try view  E ( the white dress) or F (the pink dress) they are the same dress, however F is just
shorter in length..

 I have the pattern cut out and the fabric and  lining are in the wash on delicate as I type!I would post a pic of the fabric, but I want to keep some kind of the suspense right :) I have a little over two weeks to get this dress completed Divas! I'll keep you Divas updated and hopefully I will have beautiful dress to show you! Alright, Divas talk with you later on in the week. I should have photos of the M6164 and B4789 completed! As always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!~Candice~

I am still here!

 Okay, so I should be working on garments from my ever growing fall list, but I just haven't had the energy to do sew:) I have managed enough energy to sew up a quick project M6164, which is OOP now!  I really like this top, and it almost reminds me of B5562, which I have reviewed here and here.. I will have to say out of the two, that M6164 is my favorite! Hopefully I will have pictures sometime this coming week!

 I did also manage to sew up this weekend the infamous V1250 that everyone raved about and is still raving about..This was my second go at this dress and sadly to say: I didn't feel the magic, so I chunked the dress, and the pattern in the trash... I was hoping to love this dress, as everyone else looked wonderful in their dresses! I mean from the maxi versions, sleeves, top version, every remix of V1250 was fabulous!

 So not to get upset with the V1250 not being the dress for me, I decided to cut out B4789 it's an oldie but looks like it will yield a great dress nonetheless. I am hoping this will be my Thanksgiving dress, so the rate that my sewing is going these days. I better get a head start now lol gotta get to sewing Divas!

 Here's hoping to a wonderful sewing week for all you Divas!!!!  Divas as always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
