Side Wrap Skirt

If there is the chance to make something amazing, casual, modest and a bit sexy , I am up to it.  And that is what this post is all about.
Today I have in my hands that amazing vogue pattern that I didn't know it was going to turn so cool.  I got my inspirations from Pinterest and definitely I didn't know that gingham was going to be on trend when I bought my fabric at Hobby Lobby, so I feel quite Blessed with the result.


  • Pattern vogue v9172 It has pockets!
  • fabric is a navy/sand gingham that I got at Hobby Lobby.
  • The pattern itself is amazing, I didn't have to make any alterations and as usual I made the size 14 which it has my measurements.

what did I tell you about a bit sexy, modest, casual and amazing! what a project.  I love it and would make it again in a heart bit.  I hope you guys found this post inspirational.

Have a nice week and God Bless You all!

Cascade Details

Who doesn't love a shirt with a hidden placket and a beautiful cascade as a cute little detail? Well, if you are one of those people who hates uniforms and enjoy standing up around your peers, You would love this shirt. 
I enjoy  making it with 3/4 sleeves because I like to have a closet that can be useful year round,  practically.

  • I love it and I would love to make it again.  This pattern has cool options like cascade of ties and long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves, You decided.
  • I really need a full length mirror to match my clothes to my body shape, but after wearing the shirt, I realize that I better make some dart in the back so I don't hide my figure under that beautiful shirt.
  • pattern is Butterick B6488 version A
  • Fabric: is a shirting fabric bought in my last trip to Cartagena, Colombia. that fabric is amazing, it doesn't need much ironing and it is very breathable.

I think one of the reasons I enjoy this hiding placket is because buying buttons is quite a job to find the special ones, also in this case buttons are not main character of the shirt and having a hidden placket  is definitely more elegant.
I really hope you guys enjoy this post, I will keep in mind to make those back darts that I need so bad and post new pictures in  my Instagram or Facebook account.

Have a nice week and God Bless you all!

My Love for this Vest

Hello my dear friends, I have been a little busy here lately because my little boy started Pre-K  and after I ask God in prayers for a job, he gave me one and did not forget any single detail.  So I have been working out of home and at home for the family, I might have less time for the sewing machine but I do it one step at a time.  
Here is one of my recent projects, this vest I have wanted to make it for quite a while but the time never came and I didn't find the fabric color that I wanted.  While searching in for fabric I saw this  sandy twill and I decided to give it a try.  So here it is! 

  • The Pattern is Vogue V8931 and not alterations were needed.
  • I made size 14 which is my actual measurements.
  • I would love to make it again, I would have to think of a great color because I already have one black
  • Fabric store:
  • Fabric Choice: twill (sand)

This vest is meant for my sport casual outfits of fall, hopefully I will get creative and make another one with spring colors, here in Georgia spring and Fall can get cool.
I hope you find the post inspiring and I invite you to follow me in my Instagram account where I am post pictures more often. 

God Bless you all and Have a nice week!

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.

  • Fabric: Special occasion fabric
  • Store: JoAnn Store
  • Pattern: M6696

Pattern Review:

I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopefully you find this post interesting; You will find all my recent makes in my Instagram account or in my Facebook page.

Have a nice weekend and God Bless you all!
