Terrible Twos

I was lucky to skip Stretch Marks, luckily I skipped most of Morning Sickness, I also skipped the Heartburn. But not lucky enough to skip the Terrible Twos. They have hit us with full force. Temper Tantrums at the drop of a hat. You look at him wrong and there he goes. Complete with rolling on the floor and banging his hands and feet. Try to get him wear his Jacket or Shoes when he doesn't want to. This is especially fun if you're getting late for work. Meal times are even more fun now. He learned saying 'No' a long time ago and doesn't say 'Yes' still. Does that tell you something? LOL!

Last night we stopped by the mall to pick up something. He wanted to ride the escalator. DH happily obliged. When they reached downstairs Mehul spotted the train. It's a ride-on train that just circles around the lobby and in one wing of the mall. Well, the rides are only on the weekends, but who could explain him that? Tantrum ensued right there in the lobby. Took the escalator to come up and then again rolled on the floor for a bit. I told DH to just keep walking and not look at him. That technique usually works. Thankfully, the Carousel in the Food Court was working and he got to ride that. He wanted another go but we said Bye Bye to the nice lady at the counter and she closed the gate. We promised to come back. Crisis averted.

But all the trouble was worth seeing DH riding the Carousel with him. I should have posted the Father and Son layout *in this entry*. DH is the guy who went to Disney and didn't ride a lot of Roller Coasters because they can make him sick. And there he was, with his son on the Carousel.

I can't go without sharing this latest stunt of Mehul. Last night, he woke up around 2AM. He was sleeping on our bed in-between us (we really should bring the crib back). Anyhow, DH said he had fallen back asleep. I wanted to make sure that he was. I leaned towards him to see if his eyes were closed. And I heard M say "Mamma, lie down" OMG. It was hilarious. DH and I couldn't sleep for hours after this.

No. You can't have either of my guys :-)

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…
