Happy New Year Everybody!!

Wishing you all an awesome year ahead, may you live your best year yet!

So I made it! I definitely got through the list of things to sew for the holidays and I am truly proud of myself. 2015 is off to a good start. My machine probably thanked me on Christmas and Boxing day, it got some rest. hahaha.. But It was a good trooper as I completed the projects. The feedback was overwhelming from those who received little tokens of appreciation. Here are some of the final pieces made right up until Christmas Eve.

Thank you

Much love




Winter/Fall Sewing Part 3- For Him!

Menswear???????? this was a challenge I gladly accepted without a fight and I absolutely loved it and he loves it too.


We worked on this from scratch together, which involved:

1. Going to the fabric store ย and choosing the fabric

2. Drafting the sweater pattern with a T-shirt

3.Three different fittings before final product

By the end of the day the sweater was good as done.:) Team work!

I know, I know, I really do enjoy these right on the spot projects from start to end. A shirt in a few hours, a skirt in a few hours…..aaahh the adrenaline of the novice sewer. ๐Ÿ™‚ hahaha. I can only imagine what time can do to this skill as I develop it.

So originally while shopping it was suppose to be a simple sweater. However by the time we came across the “knick naks section”- you know those add ons when sewing. He wanted patch on the sleeves…..hahaha…really!! ( Dude I have never done this before, go easy on the design pleaseeeee).. But hey I guess he had a vision of what he wanted because they came out great. Thanks Designer MV in training..lol


It didn’t stop there, he asked for a hoodie……( my oh my … ) I didn’t argue. With this ask he was generous to accompany it with a youtube video he found on how to do a hoodie. hahaha, my own sewing helper. What a fun afternoon it was. The Hoodie worked guys!!! The whole get up just worked.( we were debating adding laces to the hoodie, either way it fitted well)













This was a really good project for me. Nothing like a great review. He loved both sweaters and of course is very eager to wear them both. He might have just started the mens collection. What do you think? Who knows. These days I am just taking the challenges and going with it. It’s trial and error as I go but at the same time I am learning so much more and becoming much more confident with my sewing.

Fall Winter Sewing Part 2-A Circular Button Inspired!

How amazing is it to transform a piece of fabric into something beautiful. I think it is amazing. That’s why I am particularly drawn to sewing. I see a piece of fabric and I can envision automatically what I can see the fabric doing. I am even more thrilled that as I go along that piece is transformed. This was sort of my relationship with this skirt. Another addition to my fall/winter sewing. We should all add at least one circle skirt to our wardrobe this Fall/Winter. I insist on it. How preppy are these.

It was actually a full suit. But I didn’t bother with the top. It’s a crop top. Will probably show it finished in a later blog. But I rocked the skirt to work a few weeks ago.


All preppy!



The Twirl factor….love love


Posing-The full look





Great addition to the winter wardrobe. Hope you like.
