Sunny Day to All,
I am from Haiti but have been residing in the East Cost in Maryland since 1999. This trip was my 3rd time to L.A. as I now have family residing there. Any sewing lovers will share my feelings when I say that the LA Fabric District is awesome. There isn't a Fabric District in DC or Maryland so I get super excited when walking in several streets filled with Fabrics. My eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store. I got to visit several stores including the great Michael Levine Store that I purchase Fabric from online all the time. Of course, I purchased a lot of fabric and brought back an extra suitcase from LA. It always happens! There is always an extra suitcase coming from LA. I never got to share my previous trips but why not share this one with you guys. Enjoy these few pics!!
The selection of fabric was crazy. I saw some great designer fabric that I couldn't afford. Ha! I should have taken some pictures of the fabrics, but didn't know that I was going to blog about it. Many stores allow you to bargain. The more you bought, the lower they dropped their prices. Now, I am from Haiti so bargaining is not new to me. Let's just say that I got some great deals. I planned on visiting the NY Fabric District very soon as I was told it is totally awesome. Please feel free to share where else I should travel to for the same type of excitement. Happy Sewing to You!
Sunny Day to All,
It's been a while since I posted on the blog. I have been traveling and working on some home Improvement projects that have taken all my time. I recently found a little time and made sure to squeeze this cute little Romper. I got this fabric at GStreet fabric in Rockville, Maryland. I already knew I wanted to make a jumpsuit once I saw that soft blue with the flowers. McCall 7632 was the perfect choice. I could easily rock it with some flats but chose my chunky nude heels. You guys know i love my heels. I went with the wood accessories for this one. I haven't worn it to any event yet but will do soon, Ha! At this time, I am just trying to tighten my skills and the more I sew, the better I will get. Enjoy these few pics of my new romper and thank you so much for stopping by.
About the Pattern
McCall 7632 was extremely easy. I used the same fabric as a liner. I made View A but will definitely make the others in the future. I cut size 12 for the pattern but wear a size 6 on a regular. The instructions were pretty straight forward. If you can install a zipper, this is considered a beginner intermediate pattern. I didn't make any alterations to the pattern except making it a little shorter as I am 5 feet tall only. Happy Sewing to You and thank you again for stopping by.
