Hi Darlings! Happy Monday to you all. Okay you know how I say that every season I clear my closet and really only keep items that I know I can’t replicate or was made from a fabric I truly loved? Well this dress is going to be one of those items I make that I will NEVER GET RID OF! Not because I can’t find the fabric again but because this baby almost didn’t make it. Ugh! even after 27 years of sewing I still have moments where I want to ball up the project and throw in the t

Hi Darlings, I swear it has been weeks since I have photographed myself. I apologize! Not only have I missed taking my OOTD pics but I have not had time to sew anything for myself! I am taking a few days this week and next just to make myself some fab transitional pieces. I also wanted to mention that my Simplicity patterns have begun arriving at stores!!!!! and over the next two weeks they should be available at Joann, Hancock and anywhere else Simplicity patterns are sold.
Hi Darlings, I have had such little time to sew for myself, and that is so not cool! lol so I took some time out last week to make myself a dress. As soon as McCall patterns came out I grabbed this little number, McCall 6988. It is so cute, and I had some left over pink scuba fabric that was just enough to make this dress. I made just a few changes to the construction which I reference below int he pattern review. This was a quick sew-up too which is great when you have lit
Hi Darlings, I am super excited to say that tomorrow I will posting the “Front Slit Maxi Tutorial” I had been trying to squeeze in time to film on top of conference stuff, so I feel a sense of relief that manage to do it before the month ended.

Hi Darlings! I am so excited to be heading to Miami in a few weeks as a speaker at Hispanicize 2014. I have a lot of sewing to do for my trip, so I better get busy. Today’s dress may look familiar because I made up this pattern (M6884) a few weeks ago HERE; it is such a great pattern and so quick to make. I have been having issues with my sewing mojo and so when that happens I try to make something quick and easy to help get my mojo going again. The fabric is just fantastic!!
