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 

Fabric Store:

Pattern: M6963 

I have years buying from this store, this is not sponsored commercial but I wanted you to know that it is a place you can trust.

I would love to make this pattern again, however it is not the best for my wide shoulders, but it is a need to have such a top for the date night with my husband or for those moments that I don't  to look so dull.  I am looking forward to make more tops and bring my reviews to you guys.

Thank you for coming back to my blog and enjoy my posts, I will be back soon. 

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:
