Recap


Ok you readers :-) I guess I should fess up what has been keeping me busy -

My sisters family visited us in September. This visit had been postponed because of me going to India for a month for work in June. So before she visited, we completely re-did the guest bedroom. This kept us busy through out August. I am really quite happy with the way this room has been done. Exactly what I wanted. There will be pictures, I promise.
They visited in mid-september and stayed till mid-october. We took them to Disney!! They have a 7yr old DD and it was just perfect. We were there for 6 days and had a great time. Went to Sea World, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. The weather was good for the most part, the lines were short. It was a great time to visit. The only thing was I couldn't ride but still made the most of it. We also took them to visit Niagara Falls and New York city. Both long trips but they really enjoyed it.
After she went back we slowly got into a routine. The long trips completely tired me off. That combined with first trimester tiredness, I was just doing the bare minimum. The whole October-November is a blur. I developed a great deal of nausea and completely lost my appetite. Now I am in second tri and getting my energy back. So there is the news :-) From the moment of positive test, I've kept a pregnancy blog. You are welcome to read in your spare time.
There you have it. I will be back with pictures! Made a jewelry piece this weekend I'm very proud of. Can't get a good pic of it to show off the sparkle but I'll post what I have.

Itch to Stitch blog tour 2018

It's time to sew Itch to Stitch
I am participating in the blog tour again this year. This is a time to sew Itch to Stitch patterns we've been meaning to make for long! I have had my eyes on Crystal Cove Cami since it released and the Angelia Shortswere on my #makenine2018! It was absolutely the easiest decision to participate in the blog tour and pick these 2 patterns. Itch to Stitch patterns are very well drafted, have precise yet detailed instructions. Kennis Wong is well respected in the industry for putting out top notch patterns. It is an absolute pleasure to sew ITS patterns!



One of the wonderful sponsors D&H fabrics sent me this beautiful Moonstone in blue (Atelier Brunette) fabric that I absolutely love! More info on the fabric below - 



Before I go on with the construction details, I want to mention that both the Crystal Cove Cami and Angelia Shorts are on a FLASH SALE for 24 hours only! TODAY ONLY (9/20), you can get Crystal Cove Cami for $8 and and Angelia Shorts

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…

Basically Jalie Blog Tour - Day 2

(This post has been sponsored by Jalie Patterns. There is  a sewalong, rafflecopter, and amazing prizes to win so keep reading! ) 

Majority of what I wear are work/business casual outfits and hence that is majority of what I sew. I am always looking for cute woven tops to add to my rotation. I love making tunic tops especially now that I've learned to fit them. I never liked any store bought ill fitting and stiff feeling tops especially button-downs but now that I can make them and make them to fit, it is a whole different story!

This blog-tour is for basics and I consider woven tops to be part of my daily basic wardrobe so that is what I made for this blog tour.


This is the Rose blouse (Jalie 3881) in a woven crepe fabric I got recently from Sincerely Rylee. The fabric is gorgeous and so easy to work with. 
I chose this top because of the bow. Let's be honest, we love blouses with bows! I have never been able to find a perfect blouse with a f…
