Vogue 1274 - Asymmetrical Closure Top

Hey Everybody!
I'm back with a project, not for me but for my mom.
We talked about the type of top she wanted.
She told me a she wanted something tailored but comfy.
We messaged each other flew pictures back and forth
until we agreed to Vogue 1274 View B and changed the cuffs to a more basic design.
 It's more of an Asian Inspired Origami Style.




I loved it so much, I made 2 for her..

Vogue 1274

Very loose-fitting top has collar, low armholes, asymmetrical button closing and three-quarter length sleeves with button drape. Narrow hem. B: back-buttoned drape. Front, back and sleeves extend into drapes.

Size: XSM-SML-MED, LRG-XLG-XXL














I can tell you, that the Asymmetrical Closure Top intimidated the hell out of me. 
I told a deep breath a prayed the whole way through. I wanted my mom to really like the shirts and give her something that I'm proud for her to wear.





Once the front, back and collar was put on, it smooth sailing. 
I just made sure it was as neat as possible. 



Bottom picture is the sides of the shirt.

Another look at the polka-dot shirt's front.




This is My Beautiful BeDazzle (Mother) in the shirt I made her. 
She loves it.. 


I can tell you that this won't be the last time I make this shirt. 
I want to make one for myself.
She looks great in hers and can't wait to see her in the other one I made for her.

I have been sewing but not posting because I hate my computer.
I just was delivered today and now I'm up 11:05 pm in bed, working on my blog.

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

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. 






Inspiration:

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…
