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!

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…
