Vogue 8604!


I've had these pants finished for about a month now, but I am just now getting around to reviewing them. This is a very easy vogue pattern as given the rating per the Vogue pattern.  If my memory serves me correctly there were only two or three pieces; however, I am much too comfortable at the moment to go and check the pattern. Just trust me on this one, it's EASY! I made these pants up at the same time that I was jonesing for the clover pattern from Colette patterns. I have since purchased that pattern and have made two muslins, so hopefully I will have them complete in the near future.


Oh yeah! The hair,nope didn't cut it! Just having a little girly fun!

So, I used a poly- blend fabric from fabric mart fabrics. I opted to use an invisible zipper instead of  a regular zipper, that's all that I had on hand, and I love the smooth lines anyhow... I added 2 1/2 inches in length to able to wear this with heels and hem the pants the allotted length per the instructions. Umm, I believe that is it in terms of alterations, so to speak. I love the look of high waisted pants and skirts, but I am unsure if this is a look that I am most comfortable in... I guess because I never wear my shirts tucked in unless I have a cardigan or jacket, or in this case a vest on! I dunno, I guess I'm just crazy like that lol!

Paired with my vest from F21 and red top and my leopard print flats that my two year refers to as "mommy's cat shoes"!

I know you are probably saying, we want to see the back! Well, you can't because I didn't have my helper home to zip me all the way up to the top! Men, what would we do without them, right! But you are in luck I did happen to take pictures of the back just in case you were interested!


The back of the pants!

The pocket lining is left over lining from V8679 jacket!*side note* I will make sure
to understitch the pocket lining to the pants to prevent pocket gaping!

 Well, that's all for now! I'm trying to decide what I will work on this weekend, since this is a long weekend! What are your plans for the weekend sewing wise, or will you be taking it easy? I am undecided myself, so will see! Divas, be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

Valentine's dress V8742 and Happy 30th to me!!!!


So, I finished my Valentine's dress in time to wear with my three Valentine's! My hubby and our two boys.. My husband really made sure that I had a great evening, so kudos to the hubby... I really was not even sure if I was going to get the dress finished in time, seeing that I didn't start on the dress until Monday the day before V-day!

Paired here with V8679 jacket!

I sewed the dress all the up eliminating the hook and eye and bias binding!

 However, this dress is a breeze to sew! Especially, once I eliminated the bias binding at the neck and "steam a seamed those hems".. Can we say it together*winning*! This dress is easy to wear, and I love the side ruching in this dress it makes for a very figure flattering shape... There's really not much to review on this dress, it's simply that simple! I used a ponte knit from fabric mart fabrics and I sewed a size 18 but cut 2" off the hip so I could have used a 16 in hindsight...

 Overall I had a great Valentine's day with the hubby and my boys and glad that I was able to wear my new dress to dinner last night! Well today is my 30th! Thank you Jesus for another year, so I plan to take it easy today and relax!  Be blessed Divas and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

On the move!

        My family and I are up for orders, well actually we have them and will be moving to the great state of Texas! I've never lived in Texas, and surprisingly have never visited there either for that matter.. Like with any move in the military, it's all what you make it to be, so this should be a new fun filled adventure for my little family!

  On the sewing front I have, or just started to sew my V-day dress shhh! Don't even say it lol! But to my defense my entire household excluding the hubby was sick with the flu all last week, so that meant no sewing going on here...I am hoping to get this little dressed whipped by tomorrow which is V-day and then my B-day the most important for us ladies! Well, just wanted to stop in quickly, but hopefully this week I  will have garment to post! Be blessed Divas!
