Summertime Simplicity 1607 and 2562 Jumpsuit..

Hey Everyone! 
If you come to my blog often, you know how much I love wally world..
I was in Wally World Monday and came across this beautiful home decor fabric and knew I had to make something with this.I It was $3.00 a yard so I picked up 3 yards. After I made my Circle skirt on last post, I went to Wally World and purchased to rest of the 1 yard and 5/8 . My mind is always racing thinking of different patterns, types of clothes or outfit to make. Oh .I remember this cute Jumpsuit and knew I had to make it. Ask me where am I going to wear it. I don't know and I don't care I just had to get out of my head and in some fabric. LOL! 
I'm. Crazy like that! I get a little obsessive when I have and idea in my head. I remember posting this on my FB groups and putting it on my "Must-Sew" list. 


Check this one of the many boxes off my Must-Sew List!! 
Being that my "girls" are large I added straps and the Cynthia Rowley 1607 was just the ticket..




 This was my inspiration jumpsuit. 
When I first saw this on Pinterest, know I had to make it or something similar.
She looks soo cool and cute and I love the print.
Maybe I'll make it in Ankara someday. 




 My FAVORITE Pant Pattern.
It never ever fails me, I use the average cut and it always comes out perfect.. 


I only used 4 pieces of this pattern, 3, 4, 7 and 9.
That's it..





I used the top bodice and straps from this pattern. 



All cut out and ready to sew. 


Now let's get down to business.
I started on the pant first and didn't need a zipper, so I closed the front completely up..
I didn't need to cut out a zipper panel or anything else.


It's sewn shut....


Pocket View..


Finished pocket..


I left half of the back pant open because I'm putting in a zipper in at later date.
I wanted a pink, purple, orange or blue one, I can't decide
My pants are all done, so I put them aside and off to the bodice.


Putting the bodice in was straight forward, but I did something different with the bodice front. 



I took one of my french curves and cut a deeper sweetheart neckline in the bodice. 


Shown is after the french curve was cut.. 
Sexy....


Front and front side bodice sewn together. 


 Another thing I did different from the back bodice was cut the back in two pieces,
 I'm adding the zipper to the back not the side. 



 Picture of bodice 


The straps literally kicked my ass. 
I was about to stop sewing this and move on to another project.
Seriously..
I don't want to talk about it, but I finally got them together and I'm glad I didn't give up.
This Drove the Hell out of me..
LOL!!


Below is the inside view of straps and lining sewn together.

Putting it all together..


Top half is done.
Yes!


Putting both top and bottom together then serging it.

 Nobody's perfect.
You still see the stitching of the straps.

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..

Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

 Looking at YT, again and I saw the cutest leather tote that I had to make. First, I made a mini purse, just to see if I could so it. Then I decided to make the larger version.

DIY Jil Sander Inspired Pyramid Mini Bag.

Hey Everyone!
I just received this faux croc leather in the mail yesterday and as soon as I looked at it, I know exactly what I wanted to do. I'd been eyeing Jil Sander's purses and clutches and knew I had to make something inspired from her beautiful collections.   
It took about 3 1/2 hours to make and was really easy once you get your pattern down,,
She's not very big but big enough for your phone, makeup, money and keys to fit in just fine..



Here's another view of her..
I need to make one in every color..




This is the original Jil Sander's purse based on the replica.   Materials needed:

Not even a 1/2 of yard of faux or vinyl of your choice.
Zipper
Purse Accessories of your choice.
Loop Ring
Tassel
Loop Clip



Let's begin.  Cut 2 pieces of paper 6 x 6 


With one of the 6 x 6 paper. Put a dot in the middle of the page and take a ruler and run and line from the bottom to the end making a triangle.


Cut lines to make shape of Triangle


 Cut 4 Triangles and 1 Square.


From the Beach to the City... Sewing! Tunic time...

Cynthia Rowley - Simplicity 2854..Well this year my family and I are taking 2 trips in one... We going to the beach and back home to New Orleans (my hometown).. I want to make a couple of pieces that I can transition in both places.. Well I think I found something else.. I love tunics.... In blogs to come I will take pictures of tunics I've sewn through the years.  
Simplicity 2584 View B: 

This pattern was one of my first pattern that I purchased... years.. I was too scared to try the yoke (neckline), that I put it in the back of my patterns..I went to Wal-Mart and purchased this Home Decor, Linen-like fabric..  I couldn't pass up $3 per yard, so I got 3 yards.
 Advice: Read your patterns and when you can't understand them. read them again.. I have a tendency to look and skim through patterns. This one had me praying.
Below: I love how it came out.. I know I'll be making a few more for the trip, some in contrasting colors... I can put flip flops on for the beach and we…
