One Fabric Two Looks!! #FunFabricFriday

Well it's Friday and we are right around the corner from Christmas and the New Year! The weather we have been having has been great, and when I stumbled upon this gorgeous honey mustard double knit fabric and knew I could rock this before the fall came to an end. I thought a little out of the box with this and I am glad that I did.  One of my most favorite things to do when it comes to sewing is frankenpatterning. What is that you may ask? It's when you piece together different parts of different patterns to create a completely different look. I am very happy with both of the looks I created here with this yummy comfortable fabric. 

First look is a combination of Mimi G Simplicity 1283 (top) and McCalls 6760 (pants only). I love these pants...I've used them several times and wasn't quite sure how they would work with this bodice but I love the final outcome. I paired this jumper with a Mimi G cocoon sweater made out of what else but pink sequin and of course the look was complete with my pink leather belt and pink suede wedges. My second look is one of my favorite dresses to make, a self drafted midi fitted dress with a pbow. Sometimes in this world full of just have to bring your own SUNSHINE!



Until next time,
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy, Period.

Climbing my way back/My Favorite 17 looks of 2017!

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming
There's a voice inside my head saying,
You'll never reach it...

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels,
Lost with no direction
My faith was shaking,
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high...

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
There's always gonna  be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose,
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waiting on the other side...

It's been a looooooong time since I last blogged, I've had a whole lot going on. When I first started the blog, it was for the main purpose of showcasing my sewing, however I discovered there are other layers to me besides sewing. Sewing has become a very huge part of my life since started way back in 2013. If you're new to the blog check out my very first post HERE!!!

Since I've been away for awhile, I thought I would post my 17 favorite l…

#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 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...
