Fabric.com Haul and Inspiration Looks For Fall..

Hey Everyone!!!
I'm here today with a fabric haul for Fall.
I was on fabric.com website and couldn't resist these beautiful fabrics. 
As you can see, I'm in a black and white frame of mind.

Under each fabric choice I've put some inspiration pictures that I may on may not make.


Polyester Crepe Mosaic Black/White
$4.18 per yard


Butterick 6015, View B would be perfect for this fabric. 
It's not to thin or thick, it's perfect for Fall and Winter. 
I may just lengthen the sleeves to 3/4 due to the weather, Texas weather is so unpredictable. 
Last week, it was 61 degrees in the morning and 85 degrees in the afternoon. 




Double Brushed Poly Jersey Knit Medium Stripe Black/Ivory


I thought this fabric would be more thicker but it's nice enough to make a wrap dress like Mrs. Obama has on in the bottom picture. It's reminds me of a DVF dress. 



I'm also inspired by this twist front dress. 
I told myself to be adventurous and start drafting my own patterns and that's just what I aim to do. 
Stay tuned for this DIY. 





Pon Te Am Scuba Knit Black



I love this dress from New York and Company.. 
I won't make it exactly like it, this inspired the hell out of me for work.. 
I'm going on a business trip on the 17th and this would be perfect for the conference.. 

OMG!!!!
I found this check at Wally World.. 
Yes, if I take my time and really focus, I think I can make 2 dresses.




 I love this dress that Jennifer Hudson is wearing..
This sexy black number with the front slit..
This would be great a Holiday Party.. 







FOUND IT!!!
I'm thinking that this is going to the one..
I just need to know how to get that neckline right and I will. 
It's a Cushnie et Ochs and all I can say is, BRAVO!!
Michelle always, always gets it right...…


Come back next week to see what I created with one or two of these fabrics....

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..  
Ingredients below:

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

Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

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…
