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 darkness...you just have to bring your own SUNSHINE!



   








LOVE THIS ZIPPER ACTION!!!











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

#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 https://myeleven60.com/ 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…

Valentine's Day Weekend!!!

I've been gone for a minute but I'm back to business!! What a weekend I had, which happened to be a 4-day weekend along with Valentine's Day. Now while I personally am a hopeless romantic, I haven't had a more amazing weekend than the one I just shared.

Now a little monkey wrench tried to wreck my weekend but my guy wouldn't allow it, and thank goodness for him. He gave me the room to be upset for a little while when we discovered someone has been stealing my photos and taking credit for my work. I didn't know whether to be flattered or insulted at first but insulted, disgusted, frustrated, and flat out pissed off won for a moment.

 But as we were driving to our destination (a secret to me, a surprise from him) it started to subside when I saw the lovely mountains of the Poconos,I had never been there! And it was amazing! Our wonderful weekend started in the city on Friday night  to see "Misery" on Broadway with Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf...boy i…
