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 


About this pattern, I love it and I can not wait to finish the valances of my son's room to make another one. 
  •  I make a change to the pattern. Instead of rolling my sleeves up, I rather make the sleeve 3/4 and avoid myself  having the issue of one sleeve shorter than the other. I cut it at 17" long.
  • The fit is perfect and I have plenty of space to move around in it  and the best yet, it covers my butt so you can perfectly wear this tunic with leggings and not to worry so much about revealing so much. 

This is all for now, I hope you enjoy the review and notes about this wonderful pattern that I can not wait to make again and my neighbors love so much. 

Have a wonderful week, God Bless you all!

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.

I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
