White Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Coconut Oil (No Butter!)
The White Chocolate Chip cookies made from this recipe are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! I made them at about 12:30am on a cold winter night!! My sweet-tooth always hits late at night and it seems like the later I bake the better it tastes lol!!
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 😀
I have a co-workers that is ALWAYS making me think outside the box when it comes to designing.
Every time I design something for her – It’s a chance to learn a new technique or play with new fabric. She has such an amazing , creative style – so it’s always an adventure trying to figure out how to make HER vision come to life!
This is the inspiration photo she showed me:
This is my rendition :
In order to get this look – I only used the Back Yoke and the bottom portion of the bodice. If i used the side piece that came with it – it would have been too much frill on the sides.
I made a test top in a similar fabric – and i’m So glad that I did! I intended on using the “side piece” but because I made a “muslin” this time – I realized that it wasn’t needed. Saved myself a lot of time and sewing!!
I normally hate doing muslins but when it comes to sewing for others – its almost ALWAYS a MUST – Specifically when working on a new style or with new fabric. Styles can look drastically different depending upon the fabric that you use- so it’s always good to use a fabric that is the same or very similar to the fabric you plan to use for your project.
The shorts review is coming up next 🙂 I used a NewLook pattern. Stay tuned!
I made view A for a client.
These super Easy-to-Sew pieces sized XS to XL feature a tunic with contrast yoke and side bands and skirt with trim hem or contrast band in three lengths
XS – XL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think had I made it according to their instructions it would have looked exactly like the photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Extremely easy pattern. Very few pieces.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
There wasn’t anything that I disliked. I did like the fact that it had so few pieces and was so simple.

I have finally decided to review one of the many PDFS patterns I have purchased in my short time sewing ! I must say I am beginning to love them a lot more than than commercial patterns ! (You know Mccalls, Simplicity Butterick etc).
I love that I have the ability to print them out at FedEx, which means sturdier paper ! I love that many of the styles are up to date and the pattern sizing is usually aligned with RTW(ready to wear) unlike the previously mentioned companies.
This pattern is pretty quick and easy to make. I really enjoyed designing this style dress. I decided to go with the low back and the Scoop neck. I plan on making this dress again as well as the body suit version 😍😍 I’m so excited about spring !
Pattern Description: The Nettie is a quick and easy to make wardrobe staple. Close fitting with high cut arms, she can be made into a knit dress OR a bodysuit. This pattern is infinitely customizable with a choice of 3 sleeve lengths, 2 neckline and 3 back variations
Neoprene has been on the scene a lot in the recent years ! Many famous designers have been using Neoprene (fabric used to make scuba wet suits) on the run way and it’s been gorgeous !
It’s a little tricky to find and when you do find it ,you will PAY ! Lol this fabric was 24.99 at mood fabrics. The solid colors at mood fabrics are only 19.99 per yard. I decided to go with the printed because it seems that this is a first for Mood Fabrics. They usually only carry solid colors and finally have a print available and it’s already almost sold out after less than a month ! I will add the link below.
I will do a proper Review with better photos when I get my fabric.com shipment on monday. So stay tuned for my Girl Charlee, Mood, and Fabric.Com fabric haul video.
