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!

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:
