Vestido de Gala

Me Made Vogue 9053

I am loving this amazing dress that I made for my last New Years Eve and I never had the chance to post it in the blog after all the health issues that I have had, so finally I made it  happen.

Este es el vestido que me hice para la pasada celebracion del 31 de diciembre y nunca tuve la oportunidad de montar una foto en el blog debido a todos los pequenos problemas de salud que tuve, pero me da felicidad que finalmente ha sucedido.


 Fabric (tela): navy crepe
Pattern (patron): V9053



Would I make this dress again? Totally and without thinking twice.  I love the vogue patterns, somehow I do think of them as more sophisticated and trouble free, obviously every sewer dream. About the fit, it is amazing.  I didn't have to make any changes at all and I even love the fact that the low neckline is perfect for my small breast and still elegant.

Haria este vestido de nuevo? totalmente y sin pensarlo dos veces.  Yo amo los patrones comerciales de McCall y en especial los de Vogue; Yo pienso que ellos son mucho mas sofisticados que los demas en el mercado y tambien los creo mucho mas libres de problemas en los ajustes, eso es obviamente el sueno de una costurera.  El tipo de ajuste es maravilloso, en realidad no tuve que hacerle ningun tipo de cambios y aun mas lo que llama mi atencion es el corte en V, es el tipo de corte bajo, decente y perfecto para mi que soy de busto pequeno.



 Pattern Highly recomended, tell me what do you think of it in my social media and don't forget to subscribe to my Blog.

Me Made Dress Vogue V1500

 Hello my dear friends, do I look happy in this bright yellow dress? Well, yellow puts me in a very good mood, specially keeping in mind that summer is ending and we are the weather transition from summer to fall,  Sometimes we wake up to a cool morning and the day turns into a hot evening. 

Hola mis apreciados amigos, Les parezco feliz en este vestido Amarillo? A decir verdad, el amarillo suele darme un buen humor, especialmente ahora que estamos en la transición de verano a otoño, algunas veces nos despertamos a una mañana fría y a media mañana ya hace mucho calor. 



Here we have the dress without the belt, I consider it an option!
Aquí tenemos el vestido sin cinturón, yo lo considero una opción! 


Fabric (tela): Linen Blend
Store (tienda): www.fabric.com
Pattern ( patron): Vogue V1500 



Option #2  with the Belt / con el cinturón.


The pattern I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to make a fast and easy dress.  The pattern calls for a linen, crepe, ponte knit, and gabardine fabric.  
There was not an option for a lining, but that was not to hard for me.  

El patron lo recomiendo un 100% a quien quiera hacer un vestido facil y rapido, el diseñador  recomienda los siguientes tipos de tela: lino, crepe, ponte knit y gabardina.   Aqui las instrucciones no trajo una opcion para forrar el vestido pero eso no fue una tarea dificil para mi.

Hola mis apreciados amigos, finalmente tengo el placer de postear algunas fotos de mi nueva blusa de flannel que hice hace algunas semanas atras, abajo encontraran los detalles.



Fabric (Tela): Flannel 
Store (Tienda) : JoAnn Fabric Store

The pattern is something I will do over and over, it is a Plus size so I made one size smaller of mine.  There were no complications, it was an ease and amazing pattern.

El patrón es algo que yo haría muchísimas veces más, no hubo complicaciones y fue muy fácil de hacer.

The welt pocket

How I make my welt pocket


Here is to one single project that you can enjoy practicing until you make it perfect, and it will bring live to a garment.  This type of pocket are used in the pants, in the jackets and the same technique is used to make welt button holes in tailored jackets.




I started making a rectangle of 1/2" wide by 5' long and the middle line in the 1/4" of each line.






I needed two stripes of fabric of 1" wide by 6" inches long.  I like to make my stripes a little bit longer.  fold each piece of fabric like you see the second stripe in the 1/2" mark and then again with a marker spot your 1/4" pink line where you will be sewing. 




sew each stripe of fabric in the outside of the pant, placing the raw side in the middle line of the rectangle and sew in the 1/4" pink line.  Do the same with the other stripe and remember to leave the raw side of fabrics in the middle.



Here I have both pieces sewn in the 1/4" line mark with raw sides in the middle.




Now, I cut the middle line of the rectangle, separating the raw edges of the stripe of fabric. I don't cut to the end of the line, so 1/2" before the end of the pink line I dont cut straight but to one corner of the rectangle and the other. 


 This is where I mean don't cut straight but to each corner of the rectangle!



Now it is time to turn both raw edges of the stripe of fabric to the inside including the small tab at the end of the rectangle.


 It should look like this in the outside of the pants!


 This is how it looks in the interior of the pants.

This piece of fabric measure 6" wide by 10" long, this is going to be the lining of the pocket.


 Take one edge of the 6" wide and sew it to the top welt in the same line you have sewn previously.


This is how it looks for those who don't have an idea.


Now the other 6" wide part, sew it  to the bottom welt stripe in the same 1/4" line you sewn before.


 Now that the pocket lining is in place, you only have to sew the sides (R y L) making sure that you don't catch the pant fabric.  This picture below is my result!

So this is the result, Now we can just practice the technique over and over to make it perfect!


This is all for today, God Bless You!
