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 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!

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:
