Weekend was nice


It started raining here on Thursday and didn't really stop until Saturday. We had planned to go to the Baltimore Aquarium over the Labor Day weekend - Saturday or Sunday. We had planned a Potluck on Sunday so the only option was Saturday. I had almost made up my mind to not go, but DH insisted that we should. It's indoors so we went anyway. And I'm so glad that we did. Mehul had a great time watching all the fish. I'm happy to announce he *can* identify Nemo LOL and he calls it 'Moomie'.

They also have a Dolphin show that used to be free with the admission ticket, but now they have an extra charge for that. I don't really know if it is worth it anymore. We have seen the show twice before, and this time we felt there was a lot of talking and very less Dolphin Action. Mehul still enjoyed the Big Fish splashing water on him! Yes, we sat in the Splash Zone. The water was salty. Yuck!

While returning back from the Aquarium, we called some family friends over. They stayed the night and we had a great time talking and relaxing. Had the Potluck on Sunday. My 'Pindi De Chole' recipe was a hit! I'm making them tomorrow again so we can freeze some for lunches.

I've been at a client site for the last two days. It's a long drive. I might have to go in again tomorrow or next week. Can't wait for this work to be over.

I did do a layout yesterday.

Working on my shorts muslin

I'm working on my shorts muslin for the Wardrobe contest. The pattern I have selected is something that has been in my stash for a while. I never even took it out of the envelope because I was afraid of what I call 'smile wrinkles'. 

They are the wrinkles that form in the front and back crotch areas indicating there is a problem somewhere. So far, I thought my full tummy was a problem and it was not suited for a cute pattern like this, meaning I shouldn't wear cute shorts. WRONG! I have always noticed my RTW shorts ride up in the back, the side seams swing backwards giving a 'duck butt' kind of appearance. It happens to skirts as well but not to that degree. Also, my shorts inseams tend to 'walk upwards' when I move around. 
I have been working on resolving the wrinkling problem since the beginning of January. Remember, this is the Year of the Pant for me? I want well fitting pants so I've been at it pretty much any chance I get. Here I'm showi…

Itch to Stitch blog tour

Itch to Stitch blog tour Day 2

Sewing community is such a vast space spanning multiple continents and what brings everyone together is their love for sewing. When someone in this community is hurting, sewists all over the world come together to make it better. Our much loved designer, Kennis Wong - owner of Itch to Stitch Designs, was robbed a couple of weeks ago leaving her with no way to run her business. This blog tour is promoting Itch to Stitch patterns to make up for some of the monetary loss so she can be back on her feet and produce top notch quality patterns again!

I picked up the Newport top in the recent sale and wanted to make a nice top for this blog tour. I'm also really feeling the velvets this time of the year. Stylish Fabrics is one of the sponsors of this tour and I picked up mauve velvet and charcoal ponte to make my outfit.



The pinky mauve color is probably my all time favorite color for nail paint but I rarely wear clothes in this color. I'm not entirely s…

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim
This is my most favorite jeans I have made thus far! It is Simplicity 8222 pattern by designer Mimi G. It comes with a quilted bomber jacket pattern as well that I will make some day.  What makes this my favorite is the stretch denim I used by Simpli by Ti! The denim has 25% horizontal stretch and is mid weight. It is very comfortable to wear. The color is much more vibrant in person than is on the Simpli by Ti sample photo!  The color in my photos is an accurate representation. It is the true denim color. 

I like the fit of this pair. I achieved the fit by first making all the length adjustments I need. I'm only 5' tall so I needed to take out length from the inseam and also crotch depth. The jeans are high rise and hips are drafted to fit 9" below the waist. I removed .5". I had made this pattern before and the rise is too long on that pair. One of the biggest changes I made to the pattern was to make an elastic waistband…
