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 …

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...

My weekend with Melky Jean & #MiMicItMonday Featuring:Mimi G

My weekend with Melky Jean... What a weekend it was!!! I was able to reconnect with a high school alum and had the opportunity to showcase some of my designs and be a blessing to a group of young women in one felt swoop. I had the honor and privilege of being invited to participate in the Carma Foundation annual makeovers. It was my very first time in this of atmosphere and it was amazing. The young ladies got the royal treatment, from sew-ins, full make up, and 2-3 new outfits. I was surrounded by so many extremely talented women and got to see what it was like to be a stylist. As if that wasn't enough Melky gave me some encouraging words that she has no idea changed my life! Thanks again Melky for the opportunity! And I love that Tickled Pink Maxi on you! Check out a few pics below...

I knew when I saw this look on Tieko and Mimi's blog...I had to have it! I used Mimi's Simplicity 1283 to create the top. Mimi opted for a crop top effect, …
