Sunny Day to All,
OMG! What a weekend! Hubby and I spent our entire Saturday in the yard. You would think we were in some type of Backyard competition on HGTV. We spent a total of 12 hours, weeding, pruning, cleaning and gardening. I can't wait to see the finish product. I shall post it when completed. On Sunday, we were supposed to spend the entire morning in the yard but I was beat. I was too tired to be in the sun all day. We were invited to a baby Shower and figured I will get to sewing. So I have so many patterns that I want to make this summer that I had a hard time picking one. It seems to be harder to pick a pattern then it is to make it lately. I wanted something flattering but not sexy. I chose this jumpsuit because I can see myself wearing it with heels to dress it up or with tennis shoes or sandals to dress it down.
I remembered purchasing this fabric from GStreet Fabric with the idea of making a perfect casual/comfy jumpsuit. Well, McCall 7755 help me achieve this look so flawlessly. It is definitely an easy pattern and I will be sewing a few more before the summer ends. I paired it with my Steve Madden snakeskin heels and rose gold jewelry. I also took a pictures with my flats to show how it can be style down. I must admit, my front porch has been showing so well in my pictures. I need to sew some more so I may enjoy my gorgeous porch!!!
About the Pattern
McCall 7755 was very easy. I made this Jumpsuit in 3 hours from cutting, serging and sewing. I cut a medium size since I wear a 6 in normal clothing size. I had to make some alterations. I am only 5 feet tall so most pattern are longer on me than what it shows on the model. I opted to shorten the torso 2 inches and that was the best choice. It was so comfortable. I also made the front opening a little higher since I do not have too much chest to display. A sister is only a B cup. LOL. I did not make any other alterations as the patterns was easy and to the point. This is definitely a beginner's pattern. Happy Sewing to you my loves and don't forget to leave a comment.
Sunny Day to All,
I am in need of a few dresses that I can wear to work but that I can also rock to church, brunch or just any upper scale summer gathering. My goal is to make about 10 of them before the end of July and rock them on rotation to work. HA! I cut this pattern a while back but for some reason did not finish it. It is McCall 7315. Before I went to Texas last week, I finished it but decided not to wear it for the graduation. Not sure why... I actually wore my African queen outfit that I love so much. Well, well, well, today I rocked it to work with my nude heels, rose gold jewelry and my super puffy hair. I am starting to love this puffy look. Watch out! Mémé is coming! Enjoy these few pics! You guys, check out my front porch!!!!
Let's have some fun! This dress is very comfortable. I can see myself showing off my salsa skills in this dress. LOL
About the Pattern
McCall 7315 is very easy as the pattern cover states. I cut view A / size 14. Since I used a knit fabric, there was no need for a zipper. I have a short torso so I had to bring the bottom up a little bit so it could actually sit on my waist. Other than that, I should have cut a size 12 because it was definitely too big. I had to take it in on the side as well. I wanted to keep it classy so I could wear it to work and I did just that. The final look is gorgeous. Happy Sewing to you and don't forget to leave a comment.
