TIPS TO FIX PANTS


Hello my dear friends, this week I am coming with a post to fix pants, the thing it is that there are many ways to fix clothes and this one I am writing about today, it is very easy and simple.

Everything started because  a friend of mine asked me to fix her pants, they were in a very good price so that she could not let it go off her hands, but she didn't like so much the wide legs. so I asked her to come to my house and I will fix them, but honestly with our babies schedule it is very difficult to get there when the other person is available. So I asked her: give me a pair of pants that you like entirely and from than point I will fix your pants.  So that is the way it worked for us.


  • put your bigger pants under the pant that you really like because we are going to take your favorite as a pattern.
  • match hips and waistbands.
  • make sure the seam at the outseam are totally flat.  sometimes they can get baggy underneath.
  • match your crotch area.
  • with a fabric pen or chalk, mark the area of the leg that you want to fix.
  • also it will be great at this point to know If you want your pant longer or like the one with are using as reference.
now it is the time to cut the length of the pant before you cut the area that you don't like, go ahead and sew fist, so you can leave some seam allowance for your serger or zig zag to finish the edges.
As ease as it sounds, not every single pant you can fix it this way, specially those on fashion last year 2015 with a bell shape and the base of them. those bell shape boot are necessary to open the seam of the inside and outseam, if that is your situation, you will see it very clear.

I hope you enjoy my post, God Bless you! and don't forget to subscribe.

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!

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:
