Hi guys and happy monday!! It’s been a hot minute on here and I could mention some reasons why I’ve been away but life happens, I seriously do apologize. Hope you had a great start in the new year. Praying 2018 has great things and opportunities.
Onto today’s piece. I purchased this fabric sometime back and decided to make this duster using Butterick pattern. What I love about this pattern is, its an easy and quick sew. I added darts but went for a loose fitting so I can layer when its chilly. Took quite a lot of pictures but it was windy and I wasn’t pleased with how most of them turned out.
Hallo ladies! Hope you are all doing well. I had some time off work, decided to spend some time in Germany with family and also had a catch up with friends and former colleagues. Back to work in London and its freezing, can’t believe we are almost approaching the festive season (yay). Today I am sharing this New look 6446( view C) which is actually is jumpsuit but I left out the bodice, instead was tempted to make these wide leg pants. I loved that the pattern is an easy sew. I will definitely be making the other views in the spring.
Happy tuesday guys! Its getting chilly and gloomy in london, however let’s not pull out our black and grey pieces just yet. I am one to wear bright colors even in winter, hey, why not. When I started making this skirt, it was going to be a basic mini skirt but ending up adding a peplum to the hem. Love that it’s a good addition to my church wardrobe. If you are interested in seeing how I achieved this skirt, check previous post. Hope you are all doing well.
Hi guys! Wishing you all a wonderful wednesday. A maxi skirt is one of those pieces that should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Its been on my sewing list before I even started sewing (is that actually a thing?). Its simple, fuss free and I see myself pairing it with a classic white T or shirt stacked in for the warmer months. For autumn, I will be layering to keep warm if you know me, I can not stand the cold. Honestly there’s endless ways to style a maxi skirt, experiment basically. I used the freehand cutting method for make this. Hope you all have a lovely week.
Hi guys! Hope you had a good start in the week. I have been nursing a cold the past few days, I feel much better thank God. In this post I am reviewing this vogue pattern . When I saw the pattern, I fell in love with the neck as it has this victorian vibes. A light weight fabric was recommended but of course I opted for ankara just because I couldn’t help myself. As I was assembling the pieces together I realized that the fabric was quite see through so I added a lining to the body. The belt gives it a more fitted look. As autumn is here, I will be including this more in my wardrobe.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I fell in love the neck, it has this victorian vibe to it and the patterns pieces are minimal because some times it can get overwhelming.
