Project Chronicles- Wrap Top Design inspiration- (MCCall's 7892)

Image
Hello again folks.... This week is another Project chronicled from my Sew & Chat LIVE with Sew-To-Fit live-streamed via my youtube channel. During this Sew & Chat project, I sewed this stylized wrap top inspired by Keke Palmer, whom I caught while watching the morning show. You may have already seen it pop up on my instagram account . I'm trying ya'll! My assistant is new at multi-tasking. LOL. —-PATTERN- McCall’s 7892 👚 with modifications. The skirt will be sewn again and blogged later. I have a few things to say about that one. —-FABRIC- Red Egyptian Cotton that I purchased from Sew Much Fabric ___Although, I try to list every modification I make to my projects, sometimes I make more even while I'm cutting. A simple slight of the hand. Rotated the shoulder gathers to form the side bust dart. At the waist I created tucks instead of gathers, and embedded a dart inside the tucks. Then... I changed the sleeve to create a puf

Project Chronicles: Style Arc Wallis Pant

These pants were very easy to make....with only 2 pattern pieces, this should be on everyones list of stylish non-leggings pants.  I sewed these live as part of my Live Sewing series on my YouTube channel.

PATTERN DETAILS:  Pull-on Ponte pant with front design line by Style ARC,

Let's have a final recap shall we?  I really had not mentioned the #sewtofitmarfychallenge Challenge for a long while. I bet you thought I just let it fall by the wayside.  Nope...I just procrastinated.  I thought this would be a great time to fill you in on what has transpired the last few months.  I can't believe I sewed five (5) garments for this challenge and still managed to take care of my regular responsibilities. This was a hard challenge, just to be honest.  Have you participated in a challenge that requires a new garment and review, using a Marfy pattern?  I did a video review of the last garment, Marfy 6180.  I made this one for the Sew-Along which was done in September through October, last year.  Planning, writing instructions, filming videos and of course sewing was not easy for me.  Thus, I was hopeful that more people would participate.  However, I discovered that several of you found that #sewtofitmarfychallenge Marfy Patterns were really difficult.  I am g
