DIY Pleated Top + V8977 Pattern Review

This is a very popular pattern among DIY Bloggers and one that’s been in my stash for a long time too – Vogue Pattern V8977.

There’s something about shades of green this year that has my senses going absolutely crazy!

This top started out as a dress, but quickly ended back up as a top only…

My New Winter Coat for 2016 + V9040 PATTERN REVIEW

Good Day, Chicas & Fellow Fashionistas!

I have a #SewingConfession.  I often sew out-of-season.  I like to make summer/spring outfits in the wintertime.  It’s hard for me to stay focused on where I’m at!  Or maybe it’s this Texas weather where you can actually get away with wearing spring-like fabrics in the winter months…. I-can’t-really-figure-it-all-out, BUT I am happy to say that I have added a NEW Winter Coat to my closet!  During the wintertime 🙂

Vogue V9026 Quilted

Hola Chicas!

Thanks to Hurricane Patricia, I’ve had to put away my usual crepes and grab some thicker fabrics.  The temp is starting to drop and it’s time to start adding layers to my wardrobe.

Do you watch Project Runway?!

In lieu of the Finale Episode tonight

THE V9075 Jumpsuit

V9075 View BNear the end of the Winter season, Vogue’s new Spring Pattern Collection was introduced and it seemed like everyone in the sewing community was RAVING over the new jumpsuit pattern, myself included.

Everything about this pattern says sophistication and class, but what makes it so appealing is the wide leg pants!  There’s nothing more comfortable than wide legged pants!  This pattern also has a dress alternative, which is just as cute and will probably be my next make… for myself 🙂
