Redesigning The Silhouette Dress..


Hey Everyone! 
I'm back with another Silhouette Dress.
The last silhouette dress I made came out great but was entirely to big for me.
Soo, back to the drawing board.. 
I made minor adjustments, changed the neckline to a U-neck and took the dress in about a inch on both sides.. 





Click on link below to view the tutorial to the dress below..



I used the same pattern for front and back, the change was taking an inch from both side of the dress.




I also had a little time on my hands, so I decided to retrace the entire thing..



I was soo obsessed, I literally took it to work with me.. 



Tips for my newbies:
Make sure you label all of your patterns you design..


After cutting dress front out, I felt I needed something different so I made a U-neckline.

Excuse my baby's writing, I try to let her express herself almost everywhere, lol..


As before, I cut the front and back silhouette of the dress horizontal stripe.



Vertical on the both front and back sides..


Adding the interfacing to the neckline.

Both front and back neckline with interfacing done..



Adding sleeves, no changes here.


Sleeves sew on dress..

All Done...



That looks and feels a lot better..

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.
I looked into my stash at home and found these 2 quarter yard yellow fabric squares, plus the rope from Dollar Tree. 



Step one: Measure your rope by putting the fabric around it. I measured 3 inches..



Fold fabric the inches you measured then iron flat for a good cress.
