August Sew your View

The Tecoma Blouse

Well hey, I know I have been missing from my blog, but Lord knows it feels so good be back behind my sewing machine. I have been working on a few projects, this one I just completed about a week or so ago, but was unable to do photos outside, due to the smoky air here in California. On the evening I took these, well my daughter snapped them for me, the air was no better. I really need to set up a space in the house for photos for times when I can’t get outside.

I was really afraid to make this blouse as I wasn’t sure of how the wrap with the off the shoulder would turn out for me. Well I absolutely love it. This blouse pattern is free on the Mood Fabric/Sewciety page. Instructions and fabric selections are listed for this pattern. You can also see comments/questions from others regarding this blouse.

The fabric was purchased from one of the Fabric boxes from My Daily Threadz, can’t remember which month, check out her site for more details of upcoming boxes.

Pattern Description: The Tecoma Blouse free sewing pattern is an easy to wear, style, and lounge in off-the-shoulder wrap shirt

Pattern Sizing: 2 to 30

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it looked like the photo when completed. I was afraid of the wrap and the off shoulder not looking good while I was making it.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes the instructions were easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it is a versatile blouse and can be dressed up or dressed down.

Fabric Used: Linen

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations needed for this pattern, that’s another reason why I love it so much.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would make this again in a solid color. Yes I highly recommend this top.

Conclusion: I love my new top.

Blog relaunch, new content!!!

Hello all my beautiful sewists. I have come to the decision to relaunch my blog, in a few weeks, I need figure out exactly what I need it to be. I realize it needs some work done on it and I am going to take the time now to work on it. I will be adding additional content, such as, but not limited to, fashion, food, and lifestyle, pretty much all the things I love and do regularly. I felt as if I was limiting myself to only sewing. My sewing projects will be still be part of my content, as sewing is what I love most. With expanding my content I believe it be more exciting.

So for now enjoy a few of my favorite makes below. I’ll be back in a few weeks or so with a new look and new content. I will continue to post my makes as I work on my blog’s relaunch.

Bye for now, time to go Sew Something!!!

The June Nina Ramel Fabric Box – Vogue 9253

All I can say is this fabric is hot like FIRE!!! It took me several days of going through my pattern collection, yes collection. Lol!!!, to figure out what I wanted to make with this beautiful fabric. Once I narrowed it down to 2 patterns, Simplicity 1059 and Vogue 9253, then the fear of cutting into it set in. Finally I just started and the end result is what I was looking for.

Now let’s talk about the Nina Ramel Fabric box, it’s a fabric box that Shari Williams from My Daily Threadz offers. June was the first box and it is sold out, on her site July will be coming. Check it out and also follow My Daily Threadz on Instagram, Shari always posts information there. You should see the beautiful dress she made. This woman has mad sewing skills.

This was the second time I made Vogue 9253, first make was in August 2017 when everyone was making it. I loved it then and I love it now.

I love the whole look, the fabric, the shoes, which I can’t wear yet, but just wait. Now I need some special place to go to wear this fabulousness. Who’s having a party? Invite me, I already have an outfit to wear.

Bye for now, time to go Sew Something!!!!
