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 INFORMATION

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.

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.
PATTER INFORMATION 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 AFabric: 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…

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 fabric.com for fabric I saw this  sandy twill and I decided to give it a try.  So here it is! 

PATTERN INFO 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 blackFabric store: Fabric.comFabric Choice: twill (sand)





This vest is meant for my sport casual outfits of fall, hopefully I will get creative and make another one wi…

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.

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 hopef…
