Summertime Simplicity 1607 and 2562 Jumpsuit..

Hey Everyone! 
If you come to my blog often, you know how much I love wally world..
I was in Wally World Monday and came across this beautiful home decor fabric and knew I had to make something with this.I It was $3.00 a yard so I picked up 3 yards. After I made my Circle skirt on last post, I went to Wally World and purchased to rest of the 1 yard and 5/8 . My mind is always racing thinking of different patterns, types of clothes or outfit to make. Oh .I remember this cute Jumpsuit and knew I had to make it. Ask me where am I going to wear it. I don't know and I don't care I just had to get out of my head and in some fabric. LOL! 
I'm. Crazy like that! I get a little obsessive when I have and idea in my head. I remember posting this on my FB groups and putting it on my "Must-Sew" list. 

Check this one of the many boxes off my Must-Sew List!! 
Being that my "girls" are large I added straps and the Cynthia Rowley 1607 was just the ticket..

 This was my inspiration jumpsuit. 
When I first saw this on Pinterest, know I had to make it or something similar.
She looks soo cool and cute and I love the print.
Maybe I'll make it in Ankara someday. 

 My FAVORITE Pant Pattern.
It never ever fails me, I use the average cut and it always comes out perfect.. 

I only used 4 pieces of this pattern, 3, 4, 7 and 9.
That's it..

I used the top bodice and straps from this pattern. 

All cut out and ready to sew. 

Now let's get down to business.
I started on the pant first and didn't need a zipper, so I closed the front completely up..
I didn't need to cut out a zipper panel or anything else.

It's sewn shut....

Pocket View..

Finished pocket..

I left half of the back pant open because I'm putting in a zipper in at later date.
I wanted a pink, purple, orange or blue one, I can't decide
My pants are all done, so I put them aside and off to the bodice.

Putting the bodice in was straight forward, but I did something different with the bodice front. 

I took one of my french curves and cut a deeper sweetheart neckline in the bodice. 

Shown is after the french curve was cut.. 

Front and front side bodice sewn together. 

 Another thing I did different from the back bodice was cut the back in two pieces,
 I'm adding the zipper to the back not the side. 

 Picture of bodice 

The straps literally kicked my ass. 
I was about to stop sewing this and move on to another project.
I don't want to talk about it, but I finally got them together and I'm glad I didn't give up.
This Drove the Hell out of me..

Below is the inside view of straps and lining sewn together.

 Nobody's perfect.
You still see the stitching of the straps.

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it.
I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE..
Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago.

I love how the belt cinches in your waist, making your silhouette even more dramatic.
Can you say Statement Piece?
It feels more like art to me, such sculpture statement to make. 


Loewe Wide Obi Belt

It's not really a tutorial, more of a pictorial.
I actually used a old peplum pattern and cut the shape I wanted.
I can't give you dimensions, you'd have to make the shape to want..

When you get the shape you want, you cut the pattern.  Make sure you cut 2 and cut both on the fold.  After, cutting 2 ta…
