Farewell Fall!!

Well the weather outside is frightful..
.but to sew is so delightful...and since there's no where to go
Let Us Sew
Let Us Sew
Let Us Sew

Whooooooooooooooo what a week! My first week of blogging was a success and its because of you guys. I appreciate all of the wonderful comments and encouragement. So in honor of my first week, I am giving you a 2 for 1 special look!

When I found this fabric a couple of weeks ago, I knew it would be a great addition to my fall wardrobe. I also knew that if I didn't make something with it soon, I would have to save it for next summer/fall. However  I couldn't keep this delicious fabric cooped up until next fall. But I couldn't decide on just one dress, I had to make 2!!!

These are 2 of my most favorite types of dresses to make for myself: fitted midi dresses and of course my signature maxi dress. I paired them with a super cute pair of suede fringe heels and a Mimi G Cape with my own little twist by adding a hood...So with that we bid yo…

Well its been raining a little bit here and what better occasion than to make a raincoat! Who says you can't be Sassy, Classy, and Sexy in the rain? Well I say you can! I got inspired to make this coat when I visited my daughter at college on campus.

So instead of diamonds today this Raincoat is a  girls best friend!! Below is my pattern review of McCalls 6442.

Open Letter to Mimi Goodwin & #MiMicItMonday

So on the beginning of my first week of blogging, I decided to pen an open letter to my mentor Mimi Goodwin...

Dear Mimi,
I had no idea that when I bought my sewing machine in 2011 what exactly I was gonna do with it, (that machine would go on to sit in the box for almost 2 years). In early July 2013, I discovered your blog on a friend's Facebook page, little did I know that this one click would change my life forever!

I was headed toward a transition that I didn't see coming, my wedding engagement was coming to an end and it devastated me and  I felt lost. I knew I needed something to take my mind off of the pain I was feeling. I was headed in a downward spiral and no one knew it but me, and you Mimi Goodwin saved me from myself.

So after I tried and SUCCESSFULLY completed 3 of your tutorials on the first try, I knew I had found my therapy. You were and still are always so kind, answering inbox questions without hesitation, offering help whenever I asked. You will never know …
