What I'm working on today!

I love the yellow dress in the upper-left

Hey there everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Memorial day weekend if you are in the States. I really wanted to sew this weekend, but life just somehow got in the way. I did manage to cut out this pattern S1418. I shared this pic on Instagram on Sunday...

Simplicity 1104!

 I loved this pattern from the moment I saw it! Like had to have it kinda of love, lol! I would say that this pattern is not a quick make, like a hour or so pattern; however, it has just enough keep you interested! I thought that this pattern had a lot of things going to be a little top. For instance, the top is lined, it has darts, princess seams, invisible zipper, binding for the hem; I decided to leave the binding off.

Saturday morning chat!

  I hope you ladies are having a great start to your weekend. I don't have much planned today; however, yesterday was a full day of basketball games with the hubby and kids. I have two projects going on simultaneously. I don't know whats gotten into me, lol; as I never work on two projects at time. But you know what? It's been kind of fun to switch between the two, and work on whatever is grabbing my attention. I think I may have mentioned that I'm working on Burda 6829 for my anniversary next month. It's pretty much done, it just needs to be hemmed, but ain't nobody got time for that right?! LOL!

I made this in a winter for my birthday in February!

 I also am working on the new Cynthia Rowley pattern S1104. I was smitten with this pattern at first glance, but as I'm working on it; like I love it,right?! However, just note that this is pretty much a glorified peplum top, so if you're good with that, then it's all good! I'm good with it, just an observation,lol! The top has not been difficult, more so interesting I would say. It has some funky pattern pieces, but I think the pattern is enough to keep you interested, but not hard where you will lose interest, ya know?!

Simplicity 1613 and my moms mother's day dress!

Simplicity 1613 paired with V8711

 Happy Mother's day weekend to everyone who bares the title one of life's greatest jobs! I have started my celebration early, with fabric shopping of course,lol! I stopped by Hancock's yesterday and picked up a few Buttericks, but boo, they didn't have the new ones in yet! Okay, so I know that said that I was going to possibly make S3503, but you see S1613 was calling my name,lol! Simplicity 1613 is such a fun pattern, with plenty of choices to chose from:

It's my birthday today and Burda Style 6829

I didn't have time to hem my sleeves, it was time to roll; however,
I am so unbothered lol! I also made my crossover crossover a
little more, just my preference..

 Today is my birthday, yay! I love birthdays, I mean who doesn't love getting gifts, right?! I knew I had to have this dress ever since the pattern was released, and then when I saw Adrienne's version; I was sold!

Mad for plaid B5526

Paired my new top with my faux fur vest S2285

  I wanted a Buffalo plaid shirt for the longest time now. I had been searching for this print forever, seriously y'all, and I finally so happen to come across 4 yards of this flannel from Jo-Ann's of all places :). Now, I am by no means a pro with this plaid matching thing; however, I think I did an okay job. Trying to match plaid is not what I call a fun time, no indeed lol. I've had this shirt just sitting waiting on buttons for over two weeks now,sigh!

Burda magazine, sewing, chatting and all the extras

   Gosh, where do I start?! I seem to be overly excited about all that's going on in the sewing community, the good things that is :).... For instance, I signed up for the Burda challenge, hosted by Dawn, who blogs over at "Two on and two off". The challenge is to sew at least one garment a month for 2015 from the Burda Style magazine, but go have a look see and see if you're game. It seems like a lot of fun to me! Now, I have never sewn a Burda Style anything, a pattern or from their magazine.. It's a little intimidating; however, I would like to really move a little out of my comfort zone this year.

Keeping warm in my faux fur and midi pencil skirt: Simplicity 2285

  This project has been on my to do list since forever! I actually purchased fabric for this in 2013 and butchered the faux fur so bad, that I couldn't even salvage the vest. The dang lining of the vest confused the crap out of the 2013 Candice, but see the 2015 Candice handled the lining like a champ lol! And by champ, I mean that I lined it my way but hey that's the beauty in sewing, right? That there is more than one way to get it done!
