OOTD+ Lion King Live 🦁

Happy Sunday lovelies!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This weekend, I got a chance to see the Lion King Play in Baltimore at the Hippodrome Theatre and it was marvelous! I cried multiple times, for what reason, I have no idea! This play is a must-see, and I strongly recommend it to everyone. Everything was beautiful and picturesque! I wish I could’ve taken pictures, but I was not allowed to. Overall, it’s a tremendous play, and everyone should definitely see it.

Now onto the Outfit of The Day!! I kept my outfit simple but chic for dinner and the play. I wanted to wear something that was comfortable to walk the streets of Baltimore and keep me warm! All the details about my outfit are listed below! Enjoy the rest of your day and have a blessed week!

M7596 Pattern Review!

Hello, everyone! Happy Wednesday! I want to apologize for my inactivity. I was recently in a car accident and needed some time to recover. I’m doing well though. So with all that being said, I feel like my “coming back to the blog” should be a pattern review!


So I’ve searched far and wide for a kaftan dress pattern. I was so glad McCall’s released this dress pattern. I snagged it during the $2.99 sale on their website. My plan is to make more of these dresses in the future. Since this fabric is so thin, I’m going to use this as a beach cover up. I plan to make more of these dresses with a heavier knit, so it’s not see-through. Take a look at my review and my pictures below!


Pattern: McCall’s 7596

Pattern Description: Very loose-fitting pullover tunic and dresses have shoulder and length variations. B: Contrast upper front.

Pattern Sizing: Y(XSmall-Small-Medium)

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. It was pretty straight forward. On the McCall’s website, it’s listed as average. I only think it’s average because of the shirt design (A).

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I loved the kaftan style dress. When I noticed this pattern, I knew I had to have it. The only thing I disliked was the darts on the front piece. I feel like I would’ve done without them.

Fabric Used: Lightweight Jersey Knit from The Loft

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: Yes! I plan to make this dress in every color if possible.

Conclusion: It’s a pretty fast sew up, I believe it took me about 30-45mins to sew. Instead of using my sewing machine, I decided to serge the entire dress (except the darts and facings). This dress is so lightweight and flowy, I’m obsessed with it.


I will be photographed in this dress soon! Hope you all liked my review! If you’ve created this dress with this pattern, please share with me!
