Bold Plaids S6231 Jacket Altered

Hey Boo!  :)

If you cannot tell already, I am getting in the swing of fall.  I created this jacket a couple weeks ago, but was NOT going to post it until I could wear it for more than 3 minutes without fainting lol! 

DIY Wool Cape S1775

Ok so we already know I post in 3's right?  Ok, got it!

Below is a real quick post on Simplicity S1775.  I started this cape in Fayetteville, NC - the sight of Needles and Fashion's NC meetup.  I was able to fellowship (and cut up) with my sew sisters at JoAnns which was an amazing experience.  While no one was able to finish their garment, it was because we were having such a a great time!  I was able to get home and finish in time for a post.  I still havent added a button, I will travel to Baltimore this week to go to one of my favorite fabric stores - The Fabric Place of which has an impressive button collection.  My total button count for unfinished items (27) yes (27)!!!!!!! Let me see where they do that at!  Once acquired, I have so much more to show you guys!!!!

Put yourself in the moment, you are in Paris, Fashion week has ended and the city is calming.  The weather is mild and the nights are cool.  What would you do in Paris?

DIY Alexander McQueen Inspired Outfit - Fabric Mart Fabricista Challenge Week 1 - Get the Look for Less!

Great day loves!

I am excited to present my submission for Fabric Mart's Fabricista Challenge!  This is the first week and I could not wait to put my inspiration to work!  

The first challenge is to create a garment using the grainline scout tee pattern found (HERE). So the catch..... Well, each contestant could not use the pattern to simply create a TShirt.  We were all charged with putting our creative juices to work and creating something innovative.  I don't think I could have reached much further with this one!!!  

Me and Little J OOTD Ankara Monday

Good  morning Fam!

Just a quick post, I wanted to show you what my daughter and I wore today.  I made my Ankara pleated shirt and my daughter made her with M6984 View A.  I am so proud of her, its her first finished garment outside of leggings.  

I will say, moving forward, I will break her project up into days.  She was a bit restless at the end of this project.  She wants to blog as well, I told her I would think about it. 

Love her.....

Happy Monday!!!!
