My Current Sewing Plans!

Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! I know I haven’t done these posts in a while, but I’m getting back into the swing of things! So I just came back from LA and my personal vacation, and I’m ready to sew!!

If you’re anything like me, you always have “sewing plans” but they never actually become plans until later. I’m all over the place, but when I try to plan things, everything kind of falls into place. However, sewing is completely separate. I am, however, creating this plan and sticking to it! So currently these beautiful patterns are on my sewing table!

1.) McCall’s 7634

When I first saw this pattern, I screamed! This pattern is to die for! I love the lace up detail and I love the dress option! Im a sucker for sportswear and athleisure, so this pattern was a score!

2.) McCall’s 7621

Now this dress I probably could just self-draft it, but it’s always nice to have a simple bodycon dress pattern in your stash. I definitely see a modified version of this dress for my upcoming S/S 18′ collection๐Ÿ˜‰.

3.) McCall’s 7596

I am super obsessed with this pattern! I’ve been looking everywhere for the perfect caftan dress pattern, and this is the winner! View D will be the 1st one I make from this pattern. I cannot wait to cut into this bad boy!

4.) Vogue 1548

V1548 | Vogue Patterns

What’s so funny about this pattern is that I would have never picked it out in my 7 years of sewing. However, what sold me on this pattern was the shape and the detachable overlay collar. The detailing on this dress is a winner. This will be my first advanced pattern from Vogue, so when I create this dress, I will definitely blog about it! Im very excited to start this pattern!

5.) Simplicity 8380

Simplicity Pattern 8380 Misses' Knit Dress or Top

Normally patterns like these I don’t get because I don’t care for them. But, when I saw Momma Mimi do a DIY on this dress, I was completely sold. Check out her post here. I have the perfect fabric for this dress and I’m very excited to use it.


So as you all can see, I have quite a lot on my sewing table. Once these garments are made, I will be sure to post a full pattern review. If you all have sewn these pieces already please share your experiences in the comment section.

Vogue 9253 Pattern Review!

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog! It’s Saturday and I think this wonderful day deserves a pattern review. I recently bought V9253 and knew it was on my immediate to-do list. See below my entire review!

kchfsj

upclosePattern: Vogue 9253

Pattern Description: Semi-fitted back zipper opening, attached self-tie and length variations.

Pattern Sizing: 4-26 (I cut a 4)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Absolutely!

Were the instructions easy to follow?: For the most part yes, however once I connected the bodice to skirt front, it threw off the sizing. I’m not sure if I read the directions wrong or if I missed something.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I loved the kimono sleeves! The deep V neckline was a winner for me along with the big flowy skirt. I didn’t dislike anything from this pattern. Everything was perfect!

Fabric Used: Rayon Challis from Michael Levine’s in Los Angeles.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I altered the bodice front piece to create a more flattering look for my cleavage. I have a big chest, so certain style necklines, I have to be aware of. I cut the front skirt panel on the fold instead of not doing that. So in doing that, I had to make adjustments to the bodice front and the top of the skirt. My advice, follow directions! Don’t rush! I also added a thigh slit to add more sexiness to the dress!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: Yes to both! I’m already planning to make more of these dresses!

Conclusion: Follow directions! Overall this pattern is a definite winner. If you’re a beginner, this pattern is pretty basic. So it’s pretty straight forward and you as a beginner shouldn’t have a problem. My suggestion is to get this pattern ASAP!! It’s so beautiful!

Pattern Review+ Simplicity 8386

Happy Sunday lovelies! I’m back again with another diy/ pattern review. I recently went to Jo-Ann fabrics because they finally had the $1.99 simplicity pattern sale. Normally I always miss the days, but by the grace of God, a fellow sewista put the news in the sewing group and I was saved! I picked up about 7 new patterns.

One of the ones I picked up was Simplicity 8386. This is now one of my solid faves because it features 3 different looks and they are all super easy! Let’s begin the review!


 

tiaPattern: Simplicity 8386 (View C)

Pattern Description:ย Create these easy-to-sew Misses knit tops in three styles. Sleeveless top has choker style neckline that ties at back with cross-over bodice. One shoulder style features one long sleeve in a classic T-shirt length. The off-the-shoulder look features a cropped length. Sized for stretch knits only.

Pattern Sizing: 4-12 (I cut a 6)

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?: Yes! Very quick and easy sew! It is pretty straight forward

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I loved how fast it sews up. I like the design and the cut. I loved everything about this pattern.

Fabric Used: Stretch Black Croc Foil Jersey Faux Leather

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None made

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: Yes & Yes!

Conclusion: Overall, I love this pattern. It fits super nicely. I cannot wait to post a OOTD so you all can see the styling of it. I plan to make more in every stretch fabric I can find to be honest. I also cannot wait to make the other 2 tops as well. I do think this is a great beginner pattern, because these pieces aren’t complex at all. If you understand basic garment construction, this should be a breeze.

Below are some more pictures of the top! (Honestly, the pictures don’t do the fabric no justice!)

See you all again for another post!
