MsKRS and another McCall’s caller

Well good evening everybody!  How’s it going and stuff?…I’m doing all right; and feeling good because I’m sewing….that’s how I know I’m feeling like myself is when I cant help but sew…..Within the last month I’ve copped at least 12-15 new patterns…some from my recent thrifting trips and some from Hancock’s….I took my time sifting through the patterns this go’ round; maybe because I had the stores to myself…some trips were on my lunch break…what did I eat for lunch you ask?…some gummy worms and a water! hahahahaahaha!…..I always try to make a good dinner though when I do myself like that for lunch….but I really grabbed some good ones; and was even able to find some Fashion Star ones that I thought were discontinued….I recently cleaned my sewing room too and purged two big bags of scraps I had been hoarding for waaaaaayyyyy too long and threw away other unnecessary stuff I had thrown in there….my sewing space can breath again! Whew!….
This evening I decided to make myself a new a top…I need one for tomorrow; a few of my besties are having a cookout…My friend got a new place and invited everyone over this weekend for fun and festivities!…I bought some printed pants a few weeks ago from Ross but I didn’t get a shirt; matter of fact I didn’t even look…and I didn’t have one I wanted to pair with the pants in my closet….I could have actually sewn the pants I bought with no problem buuuuuut they were only like $11 dollars and I hadn’t seen that particular chevron printed fabric…soooooo I grabbed ’em up……McCall’s M6751 View D to the rescue for the top dilemma though….I went to my stash and grabbed a yard of some aqua-colored stretch lace from Hancock’s the other day and it turned out perfect for the project….it sewed up quick too; it only had two pattern pieces with no facings or anything…I serged the inside seams to clean ’em up….that serger boy I tell ya’; I love that thing and my Auntie is thee BEST for sending it to me….the lace fabric will come in handy too being as though its supposed to be 100+ degrees tomorrow here, Lawd….
Well I’ll share the pictures now and stop my rambling….y’all know how I can go on with my sewing stuff (wink-wink)…talk to you good people soon!

the before…those are my new Mundial pinking shears…they’re pretty cool! 
Front view…I left the basting stitches in…smh…I gotta get those out and re-press…damn…..

Side View….
a back shot…its one of those hi-low numbers….whatcha’ think?….(try to ignore the basting stitches when you consider….;)
basting stitches removed and re-pressed….looks MUCH better….I swear my mind moves too fast when I sew sometimes…I already have the next project on my table.  😉

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!

  1. Thank you Kely Sews!…and it was super easy to work with…IMO, only the slippery fabrics are a pill to work with….as long as the fabric has some kind of texture its cool to sew with….now silk, chiffon, and others similar are a doozy! LOL Thank you again for commenting! (hearts and smiles) 🙂


  2. It turned out lovely, my daughter love this. Can you tell me if working with the stretch lace was difficult at all? Im planning on getting a serger soon, myself.
