Checkered White and Black Pencil Skirt and Shirt

Hey Everyone!!! I'm back with yet another black and white outfit. I can honest say, that I don't plan it that way. I literally don't sort after B&W material it just happens. I love all colors, well I'm not a red girl but everything else, I'm good with. I just gravitate towards B&W.

She's a lightweight Neoprene I purchased from Esty.com. I had no idea what I wanted to make because of its pattern but I wanted to really accentuate it more.

Love how it turned out..
Don't you??


I love how my neckline turned out.
It's more of a trapezoid than square.

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.

Inspired Office Chic Dress.. Modified McCalls 6035 & Silhouette Dress Pattern

Hey Everyone!!!
I took off a few months from work to spend time with family. Now it's time to get back into work mode. So, I'm on a mission to make a couple chic office outfits. There's an old saying that goes, "When you look good you feel good" and I want to feel Bossy when I return.

My inspired dress below is from New York & Company. I loved it the moment I saw her and knew I had to make a super chic version for myself.




I used the same silhouette pattern in my previous blogs.

 I cut out the shirt pattern using McCall's 6035 making a Blouse Dickie out of it..

After sewing silhouette dress together and  before attaching the dickie, I measured how low I wanted the V-neckline. I sometimes open my neckline due to my 2 girlfriend. Opening open your neckline if you have large bust has a slimming effect, it lengthens the silhouette and directs the eye downward, it really does. Science, who knew???


Took it about 4 inches down from the original V. 

After cutting…

Girls Bedroom Series: Part 2 DIY Art

Hey Everyone!!!
Next Up, Wall Décor... I've always wanted to make a pour paint painting for myself. But since we're making over my daughters room, I decided to take a chance and make them a pair.
I used acrylic paint in colors, black, yellow, white, a little glitter and  purchased a paint conditioner called Floetrol, which was purchased at Wally World..

Instructions:
Mix each color in different cups adding paint conditioner and a little water to thin paint, then go for it.
Take each color one at a time in cup and pour onto canvas.

This is really sloppy soo make sure you've placed plastic under it if you don't
want it on your floor. 
Well, How do they look?
Nile really loves them..
She's so proud of her MOM..
I'm feeling like Superwoman with a Big M on my chest..



Until Next Time... PAINT IT CHIC!!!!!
