Hi Darlings!!

I hope you have had a pleasant start to your week. I am so excited to share some recent DIY’s that I have made for myself and I have a new tutorial I am finishing up for an easy, fast and fabulous LBD. If editing goes well it should be up by end of week and then next week I have yet another amazing free tutorial courtesy of Michael Levine, you guys are gonna love it!!

Also, the video below is of my recent trip to Ulta where I picked up some great make up basics that I love and am sharing with you. I loved how much encouragement I got from you guys about doing these videos and how helpful you are finding them. Make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel so you can be notified of new uploads.

Pattern Sizing: I cut the XS

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, this is a pretty straight forward pattern

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love a good cape and this one was a great way to get my sewing mojo back. It was a quick and rewarding project.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I decided to use toggle closures instead of the one button, it just seemed more stylish to me. I got those toggles HERE

Would you sew it again? No only because of there are so many other patterns to get to 😉

Would you recommend it to others? Yes! great pattern, easy to understand and quick to put together.

Conclusion: Winner winner!
