The Fabric I couldn't live without | McCall's 7922

Hello, Friends! The past couple of months, I have been in a phase in my sewing where I'm not really sewing for any particular event. I've just been sewing what I feel like at the moment, and mostly those decisions have been lead solely by my desire to sew up a particular fabric.... just because I like it so much.

So I've made this dress I'm sharing today. This is McCall's 7922. I cut the size 14 and started making View B.

Abstract Floral One-Shoulder | McCall's 7955

Friends! I'm back! Annnndddd with another top! LOL, It's good though because I'm definitely filling in my wardrobe holes :-D

A few weeks ago I had an urge to go dancing but I was going through my closet and wasn't finding anything that I was going to feel good in. So I went to both my pattern and fabric stashes and came up with something to whip up before it was time to head out.

This is McCall's 7955, View A in Size Medium.

Mommy's Late Kimono | Simplicity 1108

Hello friends! I'm back with some selfless sewing!

Over a year ago, my mom was looking through my stash and pointed out a piece of fabric and told me she wanted a kimono out of it. I said "okay" and proceeded to not take any steps to make said kimono lol

Well, this year I decided I should be a better daughter and resolved to make her the kimono of her dreams.

Sewcialist Mini Challenge | White McCall's 7573

Hello, friends! I'm back with another top! Last month, Sewcialists had a mini-challenge going on Instagram and it pushed me to go ahead and get something done out of my queue. It was a color challenge where we would "spin" a wheel and we would have to sew something of the color that we were given. I got "white".... just like I wanted LOL. 

So I made McCall's 7573, view C, and I cut the 12. I had been wanting to make this top for quite some time so I'm happy this challenge kicked my butt into gear.

A little sleeve Fringe | Simplicity 8601

Hello, Friends!
I'm back with a top that I made almost an entire year ago... but I still have it and wear it so you can imagine that this is going to be a very positive post.

This top is Simplicity 8601, View D, minus the ruffle, plus the fringe from View B.

As you can see, I'm still building my closet with cute quick tops. It seems like I get into one mode and I forget to sew with diversity. Years ago, I would only make sundresses. Then it was outerwear/cardigans, and now it's tops. My next thing will surely be bottoms.

You ever have a project that you're so excited to do and everything seems to be going well but then all of sudden, everything just starts going WRONG?! Welcome to my journey with these yellow pants lol

This is McCall's 7726, View B. I cut the size 12. The only modifications I made was to add 2 inches to the length of the pants.

Easter 2019 Mommy & Me Looks | Simplicity 1716 & Simplicity 8688

Happy Monday, friends! Sorry I missed last week! I was turning 29 and didn't find my way to my laptop lol But I have quite a few posts lined up for the next couple of weeks so I promise I'm not disappearing like I did before haha.

Today I am here with a "Mommy & Me" look!

My whole family picks a color scheme every year for Ressurection Sunday, and this year it was an almost burnt orange color. I looked into my stash and found this floral fabric with the perfect shade of orange! I found a pattern, realized I would have some fabric left over and decided I would surprise my mom with a top to match me (she loves matching me LOL).
