A Vacation Memory

 A memory for Life

My husband, baby and I were in vacation with my husband's whole family; It was my MJ's first family vacation and I wanted to make it memorable for him in the years to come.
During our time spent at the beach with his grandparents and dad, we used to pick up shells and MJ collected them in a bucket. So I had this wonderful idea while having a breakfast picnic my son and I at the beach.

The lamp you can find it in a Target store or online
this lamp is very easy to work with.

The lampshade needs to buy separate!

I washed the shells in fresh water and put them to air dry, meanwhile I brushed the dry shells with a clear polish nail to keep them shiny.
With a permanent marker I wrote the date of the family vacation and under the shell that I could recognize, I wrote the name of the person who found it for MJ.  This was the idea of  my mother in law.

  And this is the result!

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:
