DIY - Cowl Neck Tunic - McCall's M6612

DIY- Cowl Neck Tunic View A - McCall's M6612
I have an obsession with trying to find long shirts or tunics to wear with leggings. My backside has to be covered at all times!! I am totally out of my comfort zone if its not.  When I saw this pattern I couldn't resist. It's stylish and can be worn with tights and leggings.  I do have a short attention span at times so it looked quick enough for me to do in a day or two with stopping to go to work and taking care of kids.
I'm sad I didn't take a pic of the fabric like I normally do for my other posts.  I believe I purchased this fabric at Joann Fabrics.  It was an impulse purchase that I had no idea what I was going to make with it.  You cant tell by the picture, but it has a very faint amount of sparkle to it.  It's a light weight jersey knit. I will tell you, to only have to cut out three pattern pieces made my day and gave me my sewing fix. LOL
The pattern was pretty easy to follow. I think the only problem I ha…

DIY - Jacket - Simplicity 1283 - MimiG Style

DIY - Mimi G Style Jacket View D
If you have followed my blog you have seen that I LOVE Mimi G and I was so excited to meet her this past September.  I'm sure many people love and follow her, but I owe this restart to the love of sewing to her. I always thought all I could sew was home decor or children dresses that didn't have much difficulty to them.  If it wasn't for finding her on YouTube one day I wouldn't have come as far as I have.  Not to say that I don't have a very long way to go and new things to learn everyday, but she has made it possible for me to keep going and keep trying!!
Pictured here is one of my signed copies of her pattern.  This is not the pattern that I cut! This is safely tucked away after taking this pic.  The fabric used to make the jacket (View D) is a Black Ponte fabric (Here) that I bought from Mood Fabrics in NYC.
There are a couple flaws in it that I would change for the next time....but I can't complain for my first time.

Pajama Jammy Jam -- See & Sew B4322

DIY - Pajamas - See & Sew B4322

I know I haven't posted in awhile. I have been sewing behind the scenes, but I have been soo busy at the hospital lately posting things I have made has been a challenge. Hope everyone is well!! So I decided to make pjs for my kids. This is the first time I have ever made pajamas and I'm excited about the outcome. Remember I'm still new to sewing and I learn something new everyday!!

My daughter loves the Chicago Bulls and my son loves The Walking Dead. So I found the perfect fabric that made them both happy!!
I used a see & sew pattern that was very easy to follow!

Mr. Grumpy decided he wanted to be in the picture!

All the Anti-Pill Fleece was purchased at Joann fabric.

My daughter knew that I was making her pajamas but she had no idea that I had bulls fabric for her. I made the pants for her in the morning as soon as she got on the bus.

My son came to the store with me to pick out his fabric so it could be fair that he had a pair too…
