Simplicity 8177 in Denim

Hey Everyone!!!
I'm back with something a little new.
COAT VEST!!!
One of my favorite in my closet sew far.. 
So, easy to sew and comfortable.



Note: 
I didn't take the coat all of the way down.
I actually cut it right below my knee and cut a size 14..





Below is an inspired coat from Chico's.
I wanted something like this without the belt. 
Dallas weather is soo fickle..




Chico's 




Pattern and interfacing is all cut out and ready to be put together.


Front and back are all sewn together.


Interfacing ready to be sewn on.



Interfacing sewn in nice need and neat..


Pockets installed


Faux front pockets with interfacing.



Pockets came out little wonkey but there faux so I try to fix them later.


Still came out great.. 



I was hesitant on if I should sew the gold thread on the front to give a flare.



So happy that did it.. 
Gave it the right touch it needed.. 


See!!


Now for the arms..



All done.
I would really recommend sewing this for beginners.
It's fairly easy and takes a little to no time..

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.

Girls Bedroom Series: Part 3 DIY Pillows..

Hey Everyone!!! I'm back with another post on my girls bedroom design. Well, my husband and I frequently go to Wally World and browsing through the fabric section. On this day particular day I walk right passed it then turned my head to the right and in a split second. Like a child a running across the street without o any guidance. I was hit by this fabric. I was soo overjoyed, I couldn't stop talking to the lady who cut my fabric. She just smiled and nodded, she was probably thinking I was some crazy person.  I DID NOT CARE!!!! 😁😁

She $7 a yard and I only bought one. If it was $30 a yard I would bought it too.. I wanted this material. It actually a home decor fabric just what I needed.
