Twofer Tuesday!

Well, this post should be nice and quick and easy: I LOVE MIMI G PATTERNS!!! Bye! I mean really. These patterns were easy to follow and practically fool proof. I made almost no adjustments and when I say these pants fit like a dream! Deep REM smiling in your sleep dream! Making pants has scared…

Winner, Winner……Lobster Dinner!!!

As long as you’re not working against a shellfish allergy, lobster sounds like more of a winner dinner to me, no?!? Back in mid-February, I won an IG giveaway!! I’ve never won anything before in my life!! But I won a pattern from Friday Pattern Company and a gift certificate from I See Fabric. The…

Stalker Jacket + Mood Fabrics Discount Code!!

Being in quarantine, I really miss getting inspiration from the window shopping and people-watching I do going to and from work. Back in early January, I saw the FLYEST jacket EVVVVVER while going down to grab my lunch at work. “GASP,” I exclaimed in my head! I was walking, a safe distance, behind her trying…

When I first saw this Cecilie Bahnsen wrap coat on Instagram, I loved it!! Like pause, enlarge, stare at, pin to Pinterest, and screenshot LOVE! I figured I would not be buying one with the start price being a cool $3,050 US American dollars. I didn’t even THINK about making my own until I saw…

In my new culottes! How long can these corny titles last? 🤷🏾‍♀️ But I’m obviously going to keep at it until I can’t no more! To the culottes!!!!!! I had these Winslow Culottes by Helen’s Closet on my mile long To Make list for a while but when I saw Jolene’s version, I had to…

Not So Mellow Yellow

This dress was to be part of my Cartagena wardrobe for a trip back in May. Figured I could whip it up fast enough. No! Not quite. It’s the popular Vogue 9357 pattern that made the rounds a couple of months ago. I chose View C in size 14 and left off the buttons. I…

2019 Scarlett O’Hara!

**shrugs emoji** That’s a classic refashion from a curtain reference, no? I’m no cash-strapped Scarlett O’Hara going to woo Rhett Butler to save my family’s tax heavy plantation. I just wanted to make something cute for my trip to Cartagena. And I found this super cute sheer dotted curtain at one of my favorite stores,…

Knitting + Sewing Mashup Make

Imagine someone said you were going to a farm or cabin and the theme was Little House on the Prairie plus something your grandma might wear but add a dash of Canadian tuxedo and make it chic!! Got it!! (Every outfit should have a backstory no? It’s like how American Girl dolls come with a…

I want to be seen…..GREEN!!!

Any time I can reference The Wiz, I just know it’ll be a good day!!! About a month ago, (actually, it’s a month now to the day!!!! Whoa!!) one of my favorite sewing bloggers, Tabitha Sewer, posted a gorgeous green sequins tiered skirt she’d just made. GASP, I exclaimed!!! I’m going to make that! I…
