DIY Kimono Style Jumpsuit


Hey Everyone!!
I'm back again with a DIY Jumpsuit...
You all know that I love to put patterns together.
I love to test my boundaries and see if I can do something different with my old patterns.
Today, I want you to meet Suki..
I call her Suki because of her kimono top sleeves that I extended to make it even more Japanese inspired.



Using to top of  McCall's 6552 Pullover dress, I extended the sleeves 8 inches, extended the bottom 2 inches, and traced a pair of pants I already had. I also used Vogue 8825 sash to define the waist and little more.
Again, I purchased the rayon knit from Wally World for $2.50 per yard.
I love my Wally World soo much, it's the best kept secret.

I love how it all came together.
Don't you!!

Charlene has been with the company since 2011 and she has literally work herself up the ladder to Director. Her classic style and elegance will always stand the test of time. Y'all know I'm crazy and love naming some of my pieces when they speak to me. 

I'm here again with an Oldie but Greatie..
Vogue 8825 
It's she Fabulous!



You already know where I purchased the fabric from, Wally World.
My favorite place in the whole wide world, it's been about 5 months and I was holding on to it.



She's great of the office and even date night.
Not too sexy or conservative. 
Just Right.



I used half of the belt attached belt because the long belt would have made my mid-section a little to bulky..


Love it..


I cut a size 16, with no other adjustments. 


Here's another look.

DIY Faux Leather Pouf


Hi Everyone!!
I'm back with a sewing project but something a little different.
  Home Decor DIY Project.
I've always loved poufs and was to afraid to attempt to try  to sew but one day last week I faced my fears and acomplished what I set out to do.

This year, I plan on facing my fears and doing something a little different with my blog.

Here she is..


I love poufs, something about a pouf makes just makes you want to sit and lounge, take off your shoes and get comfortable. My home is not pretentious nor stuffy, it's warm and inviting, lived in and loved. 


I found the pattern on YouTube.
The Sorry Girls Pouf, just type that and it'll pop up..


Items Needs:

Faux Leather
Bean Bag Filler
Thick Yard


I purchased this faux leather from Wally World, of course..
I think it was about $4 per yard..
I purchased a half yard.



Cut 10 pieces of of the pattern like below..


Another view of the pieces.


Sew all pieces together, long ways facing together. 
Like picture below...

On the outside.



When opened it looks like the picture below



This is a picture of 4 pieces sewn together..



On the inside of how it looks.


Another look on the inside..


This is a picture of all pieces sewn together.

Bottom of pouf


Inside of the pouf


You want to sew all the sides together, leaving only about a 16" open to turn pouf inside out.



How it looks when inside out.
Looking good..



With the rest of your fabric.
Trace a circle and cut 2 out of pattern, I used a plate.
I only used one because I loved how the top looked.


The bean bag filling was purchased from Wally World, of course.
$19 + tax


The bag is huge. You can make about 3 poufs using 1 bag.


When finished filling your pouf. Put the round circle on top and used thick thread and sew in a circle using thick stitches..


Like below. 


I loved how the top came out so I didn't sew the round on it..
Soo Pretty!!!


There you have it.. 
My first  Pouf..

LOVE IT!!!

I hope you like it!

SIMPLICITY 8177 IN ANKARA


Finally, she's finished!!!
OMG...
Hey Everyone....
I finally finished her, I can remember posting this in some of my FB Sewing Group in October 2017.  I know I will forever wear Ankara  if it's in style or not. It's our heritage, I love everything about Ankara, the vibrant colors, boldnesss, expressiveness, and great medium to work with. I will never ever stop working with ankara, ever.






Back in October, I posted this unfinished.





I was really hesitant on adding sleeves but glad I did. 



Pic back from Oct. 2017



Now She's all Done!!


Loved the faux pocket..


I tried my best to match the pattern but it just didn't work out that way..
From far away you really can't tell..



Back Neck


Back Body of the Jacket..



I really hope you love this jacket as much as I do.
