tweed Jacket

Hello my dear friends, Here I am again with a vogue pattern and the famous tweed jacket. I don't know what happens with me but I am such a vogue pattern lover, I honestly go just for it most of the time but, I am opening my ways to new searches and wonderful pattern makers that other people like you talk about them in Instagram and your blogs.

The reason behind this jacket is very simple, in a vacation many years ago to Panama beach I saw that cute fabric store and after so much bridal fabric I found this one and it was the last remaining of it, so as many of you I grabbed all and walk to the car as proud as I could be, so after that came the idea of the jacket one day while searching classes in craftsy and I saw my teacher has one very similar to mine, so it was a must and finally it is here. 

If you ever get to my closet you will find plenty of blazers, it is part of my outfit statement if that is possible.  I do have blazers for running, to make outfit with my jeans, to work and just the fact that gives me a hint of elegance while wearing jeans.



I love this fabric and its many colors, maybe many of you din't imagine that it could combine with a very bright yellow shirt but in the threads of this tweed there are pink, black, blue, green and obviously yellow that makes this jacket a runner of many outfits. 
my main idea is to wear it with a black sheet dress that I haven't made yet and that I need it so bad..... 




About the pattern, if you see it, take it! I love it.  I can not tell you that I had to make any changes to it.  Most of the work is related to the fabric that you use; also it has a wonderful princess seams that make any adjustments a breeze.  The sleeve pattern is a 2 pieces sleeve so it is very easy but if you are looking for a sleeve with the 3 pieces you can adapt it or I might suggest the patterns from 2 amazing designers:

  1. Claire Shaeffer
  2. Susan Kalje
There are plenty of options out there for an amazing, cute and loving project.  My next step is to make the black dress and a skirt of the same tweet fabric... All I need is time.

Don't forget to tell me what do you think about it and follow me in my social media.  God Bless You!

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:
