Happy Holidays!!!

The holidays are quickly approaching and what does every woman need in her closet a LBD...yes that's right! The Little Black Dress...I decided I needed a LONG Black Dress. This dress would be perfect for a holiday party or for a date. When this pattern landed on my sewing table,  I could not wait to make this little number. It fits amazingly and was a very easy sew. Check out my review below...

Pattern Review: Simplicity 8045 Women’s Knit Dress in 2 lengths

Did it look like the photo on the pattern envelope once you were done: Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow: The easiest I’ve come across in a very long time.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern: I loved how quick it was to sew up and how flattering it is on my body

Fabric Used: a textured black ponte

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I pretty much kept every thing the same except I didn’t add the elastic for the rucshing

Would you sew it again:  Yes I would…I can’t wait to make the shorter length and more longer versions.
 Would you recommend it to others: Most certainly!!! 2 thumbs up!

Until next time my loves, 
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy, Period.
See you Friday!!

#MiMicItMonday Featuring KIerra Sheard!

Happy Monday folks!!! So anyone who has been following my blog knows that I enjoy #MiMicItMonday! It's where I get inspiration from everywhere and I make an attempt to recreate the look. Let me first say that I have been a huge fan of KIerra Sheard since she was a little girl. I have loved watching her evolution especially in the fashion world.
 She started and embraced the hashtag #LuvMyThick and at times that WAS hard for me to do, if you can believe it! Through my sewing and learning I am indeed Loving My Thick! I came across the peplum top yesterday on facebook on Kierra's page and I knew I had the perfect fabric to pull this off...Well here is KiKi"s and here's mine...let me know what you guys think!

To create this look I used McCalls 7021 for the top and Simplicity 1019 for the pants

So until next time,  Learn to Love Your Thick, and  Keep it Sassy, Class, Sexy, Period.

#FlashbackFriday!!!!/My most FAVORITE FABRIC FIND EVER!!!!

Before I jump into this #FlashbackFriday let me bring you guys up to speed... What a couple of weeks I’ve had!! You know when I started this blogging journey; I didn’t really know what I was getting into. Sewing is my sanity and if I didn’t have it, I might go absolutely mad! Since September I essentially was working 3 jobs (yes 3 jobs) Before Care, Day Job, and After Care. Now while this all took place in one location…I was drained working from 7am to 6pm. I started to notice that let alone was I not having enough time to blog; I was too exhausted to sew! My son who has Autism was doing okay at first but then started to have more frequent meltdowns. I also was in preparation to send my daughter back off to complete her senior year of college with financially issues!! So who do you think had a meltdown next? That would be me and I was not “Tickled Pink” about it! I had to do some reevaluating.

While I’m sure a lot of you might be saying “Show Me The Money”, I had to make a decision an…

I'm a Survivor!!!!!

I'm a survivor
I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop
I'm gon' work harder
I'm a survivor
I'm gonna make it
I will survive
Keep on survivin'- Destiny's Child

I am the epitome of "I don't look like what I've been through", Weighing in a 3 lbs 5 ounces and 3 months premature I was born a survivor. My hope for this blog is to be a beacon of light and hope for someone that doesn't think they can make it... YOU CAN!! I am far from where I want to be, but right where I need to be!
I've been working really hard over the last few weeks to get this blog off the ground...and what better season than Fall, where the weather and fashion can change like the color of leaves...

I know you must be thinking "Why now? Why at this time?" Well, I will tell you why, there is a reason why I did indeed pick this particular time and "SEASON" to share…
