Hi lovely people! How are you doing.

In today’s post i’m reviewing McCall’s Pattern 7726. I remember seeing some amazing pictures and posts from the sewing community on Instagram and thinking, wow I really like this pattern already. So I went on and bought it. I opted for the shorts ( view A ) for the start. There’s definitely going to be more garments from this pattern, and I think view D would be perfect for autumn or so. Anyways, let me stop dreaming ahead lol. Did I mention that I’m in love with these shorts, after all I made them ( wink ).

Pattern Sizing: I cut out size 14 and altered it to fit my body

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing with it? Yes I believe it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I would say not so easy and that’s only because of the zip fly. I googled and stumbled upon a you tube tutorial by the amazing Brittany J Jones followed along, which was a huge help.

What did you particularly like about the pattern? The pleats at the waistline, think they quite flattering.

Fabric used? Ankara Wax Print

Would you sew it again? Yes definitely, might use different fabrics.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, most definitely.



Thank you for stopping by.

Xx, L

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 and happy monday! I made this beautiful bold ankara print when I attended a freehand cutting workshop. Having learned making dresses using a patterns, I wanted to explore the traditional way using measurements. To be honest it was a little tricky at first but with time I get more confident, haha. Freehand cutting gives me the boldness to custom make outfits.

I’m so in love with this dress, can’t get over it. The ankara fabric is light and yet of good quality. I paired it with these color block sandles. Thanks for taking your time to check out my blog. Hope you come back soon for another post.
