DIY Statement Snake print Scarf

Scarves are one of my favorite kind of accessories, they add some drama and you know I'm all about the drama (strictly in my fashion style, of course). I picked up 4 yards of this polyester snake print fabric from my favorite sale rack for $2.97/yard and just did a rolled hem around the edges. So easy, it literally took me about 5 minutes. I see more scarves in my future guys!


Hey guys!

Summer is almost over, can you believe it? I can't! And I am mourning the loss of these hot as heck days...even though I'm panting for Fall to arrive lol. I reinvested myself this Summer and it will forever be a memorable one for me. I rediscovered my love for sewing and started to make more of my own clothes and this suit is one of them.

I pulled out my sewing patterns to help me create this ankara short suit. I used the McCalls M6847 from the Fashion star series to create this sleeveless jacket and I cut an 18W. It was so easy to create, I will be making more of it in different fabrics. I opted out of a button and kept it open because who buttons up their jackets these days? Not me.

I made these pleated shorts to go with it and I must say, I love how it came out. 

DIY Silky Red Co-ord

Hello world, I hesitated to post this DIY just because the weather right now is totally the opposite of what it was when I shot this outfit but oh well, let's get all the summery outfits out of the way while we prepare for fall. 

 Maxi dresses, maxi skirts, anything maxi makes me happy so it's no surprise that my closet is overflowing with them, and I am constantly making more to add to my collection. But I just couldn't resist the drape of this blood red silky polyester fabric. I mean, do you blame me?
I also made this floral crop top to complete the look.

So, I am currently looking at patterns in preparation for my Fall/Winter wardrobe because my skills do not extend to coats and least for now. Any recommendations?

DIY Ruffled Hem Shift Dress

Happy Friday everyone! 

I know I say this all this time, but this has to be my favorite DIY of all time and for various reasons. #1 it took me less than four hours to make and that includes cutting and sewing time
#2 it has been a perfect wear for this crazzzzzy humid weather we've been having lately
#3 The stripes are so perfect, I wish I had left over fabric

But i have always loved shift dresses but could never find one that was perfect for my body type, so I decided to make one.
I picked up this fabric for $2.97 a yard from my fave local fabric store and knew that i wanted to play with the stripes so I mixed it up horizontally and vertically. I must say, it came out perfectly. I wore it to a craft event and everyone was asking me what pattern I used. Like you know, this dress was made without a pattern and i drafted directly on my fabric just because i'm lazy like that.
I paired it with my favorite heels right now, these uber feminine rhinestone bow heels. I love these shoes for two reasons, they're so beautiful and they're comfy, that's a home run in my book.

I am looking forward to making more shift dresses with even more creative hems and sleeves! Stay tuned guys! I can't wait!
