Fall Plaids | McCall's 6713

Heyyyy! I hope ya'll have been appreciating my weekly consistency lol 
Today I'm back at you with a pattern that I've had in my stash for YEARS. So many years, in fact, that the pattern is now out-of-print lol. I have to admit, I'm a bit of a pattern hoarder. I probably have more patterns than I can sew really. Better late than never, right? This is McCall's 6713, faux wrap dress.

Mixed Media Sweater | McCall's 7195

I can't even tell you how long this project has been in the works lol So I'll just avoid that excuse and just get into it!

I made McCall's 7195 in View D. It's simple sweater, great for Fall or Winter, and great for me to use some of the remnants I've stored up over the years. I cut a size 12 and the only adjustment I made was to add a 1" swayback adjustment (which added a CB seam).

Textured Lilac | Named Kielo Wrap Dress

Hello lovely people! I'm back with a dress that I can't wear right now. I have made another Named Kielo! I finished this in September and didn't even wear it out until mid October when it was already getting a bit chilly. NOW, I can't even look at it until probably next spring. (smh)

Happy Birthday, Panama! | McCall's 7606 & McCall's 0525

Happy Independence Day!! To Panama, that is! The 3rd of November is the day that Panama got it's independence from Columbia!  About a month ago, I went to Brooklyn, NY to partake in the pre-independence celebrations that take place every year in the form of parades, food vendors, bands, music, and just a general celebration of the culture. It's always amazing to see the diversity of colors (in clothes & people) and the love and pride that we all have for the republic!

This year, I decided that I wanted to make some outfits for me and my mom out of some of the traditional fabric that I purchased back in 2013 when I went to Panama to visit. For myself, I settled on a skirt, and for my mom, a shirt!
