Ankara Pants- Simplicity 2562

Hey Everyone! I'm back again this week with another blog post. This time it's Ankara Pants! Many of you remember me posting these pants on some of my Facebook Sewing Groups and now I've decided to do a blog about it. I made this pants in December 2014 or January 2015, this was before I knew I was excepting. After I received the news, I knew I had to put them away until after the baby. Well I didn't have the baby, but I did get a job. LOL! After getting this job, I knew I needed to start finishing my garments I've sewn, because I refuse to pay for anything I can make myself. HOLLA, IF YOU HERE ME!!!
I know I need to make more Ankara pants, I've gotten so many compliments. I've also gotten a lot of offers but I just don't like sewing for others, it's just extremely too much pressure.
I really took my time on these and wanted them to come out great and they did too.




Almost everyone knows that Simplicity 2562 is my go to pattern when I want a really ni…

Family Fun! A Day at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to share some of my family time with you all. First, I wanted to let you all know something. I don't blog for the "money", shit I don't get any money, LOL. I blog because it's a creative outlet for me and I use this to express myself and get all of my ideas in my head out. I do the Family Time to capture the little moments our family share and in time when my girls get older they can come here and see the places we've been, how much fun they had and think back on the memories. I know I only have 23 followers and most of you have more than 1000 or so, but still enjoy sharing with you all and capturing the moments with my family. It's only the 4 of us and we've lived in Dallas for about 12 years, I told my babies this summer we are going to experience Dallas like never before. When I wasn't working we really had to save up months to go to places we wanted to go or our car didn't have air condition and I wasn't ab…

Printed Knit Series...#2 The Printed Jumpsuit..

Hey Everyone! I'm back with the second installment of the Printed Knit Series.. You all are going to have to forgive me.  Last week, I was out of town for my oldest Wedding. She made such a Beautiful Bride, I'll post some of those picture in another time. I was also to busy making her reception outfit, my jumpsuit and 2 pair of linen pants for my middle daughter and hubby to even think about my blog project.
After all of that I got back home and was in no mood to do anything, so I took a week of sewing off.  But now I'm back and ready for the second installment of the Printed Knit Series. At first, I was going to do all 3 dresses, but then I thought that maybe I could switch it up a little and try to make a jumpsuit. I only had 2 yards of fabric and a prayer, LOL..  It worked out wonderfully!


Should have taken a picture. I'll take a picture next time I wear it. Close up view of her.

For the top of the Jumpsuit I used McCall's 6752.

As you can see below, I just t…
