Last Summer Market! 

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a minute and summer is about over! I hope you all had an amazing summer.

Enjoying the final days of summer! Memade dress!

I am back in grad school as of last week and the rest is history! At least that’s my take! 😊😊 I am up to my ears in work but also so hopeful for the end and the journey.

As you all know everything else keeps churning in spite of. I have a nice line up of activities showcasing my business between now and the end of year.😊

Starting off with another fun market happening on Sunday September 24th in the Kensington Market! The Kensington Flea is located at 214 Augusta Ave (behind El Gordo foods). It’s pedestrian Sunday so you can enjoy some amazing food and vendors throughout the day!!

If you are in the area please feel free to stop by. This is my second time round for the summer.

Can’t wait to update you all on my summer makes.

The sewing chronicles continue!

Stay blessed.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful August!

Oh my… its August already!

What have you done? What have I done?  What else do we need to get done before 2016 is over???

Breathe!!the year is not yet over, we have just crossed over to what is the winding down of summer and a new month. Which means, new beginnings! 🙂 🙂

The slow descend to wardrobe layering……- Easy, Breezy and Beautiful:

It so happens that I am starting out August with 5 gorgeous print Kimonos!! I repeat 5……. I know.. its amazing that in-between all my work in July I was able to work on a few more to add to my Kimono collection for sale. The remaining three will be added to my Etsy shop soon. But for now I think these are a fabulous way to dress this August! These are always in style!!! These were self drafted by yours truly, made with love and not forgetting some awesome prints!

Creativity: Stir, Shake and let go!

Happy Wednesday!

Have you ever shaken a pop and then opened it after?…For fun… You know exactly what will happen. It will erupt like a volcano. Boooooommmmmmmm!!!!……Pop everywhere…

Like the carbonated beverage that is shaken and then released, so is our creativity. It must be stirred , shaken and then have expression in our lives. 

Whatever it is today that you are passionate about or are yet to discover, may it find expression in the earth and become a contagious contender!

Stir, shake and let go!!!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww……

God Bless

Sunny with a Chance of Summer!

Hello there July!!!!!!

Summer=Good weather for a Maxi Dress!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

I had the draft for this dress sketched out in my notebook since last year I think, or maybe 2014. This was suppose to be *The MAXI*, my gorgeous, flowy, armed with pockets kind of functional summer statement piece.

I never got around to making it last year. But that’s okay cause I did it finally this year!! Found this lightweight floral polyester material to use as a tester. And I am in love with it. This was my trial prototype you could say. It came out amazing to the point that someone saw it and said they wanted to buy it as is! 🙂 SOLD…..I know that’s crazy right. Sad part I know the fabric sold out. Hmmmmm….. I will go hunting next time I am at the fabric store in event someone left a piece behind. You never know..

The whole process in my head transpired well in the cut out stage. Very nerve racking since I was winging it basically but with some key measurements involve to ensure fit, things came together. It’s suppose to be flowy but to proportion of the size. So This size can fit a medium and a large. It may fit a small but a belt may be required to avoid a mooo-moo -licious look 🙂

I am ready for round two and making the second one. Thereafter I will try to get this baby into a sloper and ready for duplication! Ensuring of course I get the measurements down pat and the shape too. It has an unusual shape which makes it flow a certain way. Hard to explain, I just let the scissors do its thing. 🙂 🙂 Cut cut…

Goal reached, happy camper!

Excited to make one for my own wardrobe. I have a great Rayon print lined up for mine. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, stay tuned in July I have a few custom pieces in the works that i will share with you.

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew, sew, sew, sewwwwwwwwwwww

Bless
