Cascade Details

Who doesn't love a shirt with a hidden placket and a beautiful cascade as a cute little detail? Well, if you are one of those people who hates uniforms and enjoy standing up around your peers, You would love this shirt.  I enjoy  making it with 3/4 sleeves because I like to have a closet that can be useful year round,  practically.
PATTER INFORMATION I love it and I would love to make it again.  This pattern has cool options like cascade of ties and long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves, You decided.I really need a full length mirror to match my clothes to my body shape, but after wearing the shirt, I realize that I better make some dart in the back so I don't hide my figure under that beautiful shirt.pattern is Butterick B6488 version AFabric: is a shirting fabric bought in my last trip to Cartagena, Colombia. that fabric is amazing, it doesn't need much ironing and it is very breathable.



I think one of the reasons I enjoy this hiding placket is because buying buttons is quite a job…

My Love for this Vest

Hello my dear friends, I have been a little busy here lately because my little boy started Pre-K  and after I ask God in prayers for a job, he gave me one and did not forget any single detail.  So I have been working out of home and at home for the family, I might have less time for the sewing machine but I do it one step at a time.   Here is one of my recent projects, this vest I have wanted to make it for quite a while but the time never came and I didn't find the fabric color that I wanted.  While searching in fabric.com for fabric I saw this  sandy twill and I decided to give it a try.  So here it is! 

PATTERN INFO The Pattern is Vogue V8931 and not alterations were needed.I made size 14 which is my actual measurements.I would love to make it again, I would have to think of a great color because I already have one blackFabric store: Fabric.comFabric Choice: twill (sand)

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…

Fun or Work Outfit

Semi Circular Skirt  Hello my dear friends, Here are the pictures of my latest skirt; If you must know I have a hate/ love relationship with skirts because I love them but I don't look good in all of them, You must know what I am talking about.  However, after I made this skirt I was not feeling it but I decided to change the top to match  the skirt and then I felt in love with it.  Below you will find the pictures of my two different outfits, I called them either fun outfit or work outfit.

Summer Outfit!

Beach Time

Hello dear friends, today with my last post for summer outfits, at least in my plans.  However, sewing summer outfits is something I do during the whole year because I am always waiting for cute patterns and wonderful inspirations to sew more beach outfits.  And yes! at the end that is what it matters to me, hot weather and beach;  It might has to do a lot because I am a tropical bird. I was born in a warm city with tropical weather in Colombia.
So for this last summer project I have made the pattern M7756 from McCall pattern company; it is portrayed as a not bra outfit, so it might not be convenient for  every body's taste. however in Colombia there is a saying that in English it does not rhyme: " the fashion trends are not uncomfortable" aka " la moda no incomoda".  anyways, it is not really true, walking the streets of Colombia you can find lots of people that could use fashion etiquette for certain body types.
here it is my outfit:

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!
