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 black
  • Fabric store: Fabric.com
  • 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!

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:
