Snap Chat Monday!

S1589 I hadn't finished the top yet, hence the
raw edge on the collar and armholes...
   I  wasn't sure what I thought about S1589, but I've worn it twice since having made it.. So I guess it's a go:)! I will do a proper review shortly when I can get better pictures..

Posted this pic on my Instagram on Sunday, this is what I
wore to a BBQ..

      I also had an entire day to myself on Saturday( thanks to the husband), woo hoo! I did hit Jo-Ann's up bright and early and purchased two pieces of fabric, one of which I was so excited about; however, it became a wadder :(... Ain't no body got time for that, right? LOL!

I was so excited for this cream knit to become M6556.
That I came home and treated the fabric, only to hate it :(!

Made tailors tacks for the first time; oh yeah, the slim fast and oatmeal are my make shift
pattern weights lol!
  I had a vision for this M6556 pattern, but I absolutely hated it on me, it was a complete failure for me.. I've tried to like the top because it's made well, but nope I hate it!
I even made a neck and arm binding; however, I
loathe the way this looks on me :(

   I hope to get a few more tops made for summer, but I also am thinking shorts, jumpers, and dresses, decisions, decisions. We shall see! Have a wonderful week ladies,  enjoy life, and  don't stress over the small things and be the change that you desire.....Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. Such a darling picture of you in your new top! You look so good in the bright colors. Color me impressed that your lipstick matches one of the colors in the top!

  2. Great top in first pic. Love the fabric. Sorry about the failures. The next project will be a winner.

  3. Love your print top, is it made from challis? So sorry about the second one!

    1. Thanks Faye! Yes,the print top is a challis I picked up from Hobby Lobby two weeks ago..

  4. Love the vibrant colors... they look great on you.

  5. Your makeup is always ON POINT! I don't wear much makeup, but I admire those who do it right.

    Bummer on the wadder. You make fantastic things and will surely knock it out of the park on the next item.

  6. Cute top! Yeah, I hate wadders too...seems like they have been happening a lot to me too. You will rebound well, I am sure of it!!

  7. Cute, cute selfie Candice! The top looks too cute! I'm lovin' that fabric!

  8. Hi Candice, you've been busy pretty lady. Look like you have accomplished a lot, cute top.

  9. I am currently sewing S1589, I'm a beginner and the neckline gave me hell. I'm trying to decide if I want to take it out and redo before moving on to the armholes. can you give any tips/advice on the neckline? would it be easier to use bias tape?
