This will be a really quick pattern review! I’ve been looking for a pattern that had a really deep plunging neckline. I just love that look ! This pattern was absolutely perfect for that!! The bodice (top) is fully lined so I did not need to wear a bra – which is always great 😀

Channeling Tracee Ellis ROSS

I absolutely love when inspiration hits! I begin sewing and something magical takes place!

About a year ago I was inspired by the fabulous Tracee Ellis Ross wearing a blue cowl hooded dress.  It was GORGEOUS!

I was unsure how to tackle it at the time although it’s a very easy dress to make. When I came across this beautiful inspiration I had only been sewing maybe a month.  Sooooo yea,  albeit simple, your girl couldn’t understand how to execute it lol.

I used McCalls Pattern M7020 and for the dress I used a pattern I drafted myself for simple dresses. But you could totally use M6886, just use the sleeves and front and back peices and the Hood piece from M7020!
That’s why I’m so proud of myself and in love with this dress. This is something I wanted create and I did it. #GoMe

What do you guys think? Did I Nail It?

FALL IS SO FAUX LEATHER SEASON!

I think this is my very first year being interested in “Leather” of any kind! Of course I have to take baby steps and sliiiiiiiddddeee into it with FAUX leather versus the real thing (Some of which costs upwards of 200.00 per yard YIKES!)

I decided to make a dramatic high low faux leather skirt as my first project in the Leather World.

This skirt was so simple to make! I am definitely going to create a tutorial for this skirt. You do not have to make one quite as diva and dramatic as mine. I think a shorter more conservative version would be lovely for an everyday look or night out!

Oh oh oh,  let me first show you my inspiration.  Did I Nail It or did I Nail It?  Lol.  This is one of my first “remakes” that I was completely happy with.  I did my own thing and added pleats but the inspiration is still there.  Check it out..
