Ya'll!!!  This wool from makes me feel loved!  
The warmth!  The weight!  The drape!  The purple!

Kimono Love

When you want to feel amazing in the skin you're in, you need to make something that feels good against your skin!

Palazzo & Cardi

Back in the day, this would have been considered a big mistake.  
Striped palazzo pants on a big girl???

Another McCall's Bias Cut Blouse - McCall's 7125

Another attempt of getting outside of my comfort zone.
Which requires an enhancement in my self-confidence and boldness, even if I have to fake it 'til I make it!

Faux Locs & Faux Fur Vest - McCalls 7695

McCall's Pattern M7695 worked nicely with this faux fur remnant I found at Joann Fabrics.  I decided to have some fun and make this vest instead of a throw pillow...the original intent of the purchase.

Patterns for Pirates Cocoon Cardigan in a Sweater Knit

One thing I love about cardigans....they can be worn oversized!  

Okay maybe not TOO big, which this cardigan is borderline now.  But I made this about 30 pounds ago.  And I still plan on rocking it during the unpredictable fall/winter months of the south.

Falling Into This Tunic with Leggings

Do you guys remember those two weeks of fall?  Oh how I missed those two glorious weeks.  Before fall came and went, I was able to get some photos of this super comfy outfit.

When Life Calls for a Flapper Dress...

When you are told that your uncle's 90th birthday party will be a Roaring 20s Theme.... make a flapper dress for the occasion!

Shades of Pink October - McCall 7125 Bias Cut Blouse

This shirt perfectly displays the magic of bias cuts.
The movement, the ease, the flow.  

I'm liking this "add color to my closet" purchase that I made.  
I did not make the jeans but I've been finding tops and fabrics that pair well with it.  
Including this blouse made from McCall pattern 7125.

Throwback Thursday

Nothing Like a Good Throwback Thursday!

I love this shirt.  It is still the reigning champion of being my favorite shirt.  The fit, the fabric.  It’s so comfortable, so colorful, and I love how I feel in it.  This blouse was debuted in a post a few years ago.  But today, I decided to pair it with a colorful denim jean, which is outside of my comfort zone.  And I have to admit, that I’m happy to have taken that step.  

Here’s to throwbacks!
