Less Boring Tops

Me Made M6963
Hello my dear friends, today in my blog the example of less boring shirts and more casual outfits.
Today I bring to you the pattern made by Palmer Pletsch M6963 in McCall's Pattern Company, I must say that it is not a very tight fit, it is quite loose the main reason why I chose to make this pattern but also the necklace make it very casual and sophisticated. 
I love making tops and the main reason is because usually I wear lot of pants, so I need something that brings out my creativity and reminds me of what I am capable of with my talent. I would love to make more skirts and that is a future goal but by now that I expend 90% of my day running after my son, biking and flipping ourselves around, I think it is best if I can keep my butt covered ☺☺☺.

Fabric : knit floral bouquet

A Pink Tunic

For shirt/tunic lovers
Hello my dear friends, today for you is the review of this beautiful tunic or shirt that many women are loving for the comfort that it bring to us; I must say that it provides plenty of space to move our bodies around while still it has a good fit, so I would not call it an over sized shirt.
Before starting to sew this shirt, I washed the fabric to prevent any shrinking of the fabric after the garment is done, because when it happens, it is so terrible.  So while the fabric did not shrink, I did saw some whitish spots in the fabric when I was taking out of the washer  machine and I thought that was ruined, well it was spots of fabric that have been drying already, so guess what???  this fabric is just perfect material for those hot summers.    Good to know! 

Fabric: shirting fabric  fabric store: local fabric store in Cartagena, Colombia. Pattern: Vogue 1509 from McCalls Embroidery: It is an Elephant built in the emboridery memory of my brother sewing machine 


Little Black Dress

Outfit for any occasion!
Hello my dear friends, today I have the pleasure to bring my new black dress that finally I could incorporate into my wardrobe.   It is such a need to have a black casual attire; And during the month November of 2017 I had to get in my closet, give away garments that didn't fit me any more and those that I really don't wear.  So after such a hard task, I made a list of things that I need and the black dress was top #1.  

Information  about the dressPattern: from McCall M6920, which I love and I plan on sewing it again. I made the version D without sleeves.
the fabric:  is a beautiful black scuba knit, also it is a medium weight. 
Store:  from Jo Ann stores. 

I hope you all like my post, you will find the links of the pattern and fabric above in information.  I will be back soon with new projects, Until then  God Bless you!  xxoo
