D.I.Y pants (= Simplicity 2061

Hey you guys ,

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments , you guys truly motivate me! I love you all you're so sweet!
Anyways , so of course I had to make something last night for you guys today & it was a wild night LOL! I got home from my mothers work and ended up falling asleep and waking up at 8:00 pm , I went to my mom and told her I absolutely had to make something , she was a little worried I wouldn't finish in time & I would need alot of help. I wasn't taking no for an answer so I had to figure it out with some guidance from my mommy ,  I ended up staying up till 3 am ( I pretended to go to sleep LOL ssshhhh don't tell my mommy!!!) I don't mind though because it was a  few hours of peace! I think im addicted to sewing!! LOL <3 I had the hardest time with the cuffs on my pants because you have to stretch and sew at the same time, but other than that they are super easy and comfortable ,& I added the bow , it doesn't come with the pattern!! Loving them!!

Pattern Review : Simplicity 

Pattern Description: 
Misses' Knit pants in two lengths.

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 6

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope when you were done?

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?:  I like the pleats , I like the cuffs but they were a bit hard to attach with the stretching but they came out great.

Fabric Used: Jersey Knit from Joann

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made?
I added a bow!

Would you sew it again?
A million times!!

Would you recommend it to others?

My first D.I.Y top & skirt (=

Hello ,

I am so sorry guys school has officially become the only thing I do all day! Although I love home school , it really shows how behind I am in the material , so I just have to work extremely hard. Anyways guys , have you ever had a really close friend leave you to either pursue there dreams or go to a college in another state half way around the world? I just experienced this for the first time and hopefully the last. My family friend / best friend just got the opportunity to play both baseball and basketball at Post University in Connecticut. We hang out alot so it really sucked to see him leave, but everyone has to pursue there dreams and I am sooo proud of him ! He is really awesome at what he does  and I just know he will succeed! So that being said Good luck to you buddy!Lol (:
On another note , I have the greatest mother  in the whole wide world. Friday , September 14, 2012 She took me to Joann's fabric and crafts store & bought me my first Sewing Machine , its a Singer Talent , and im just soo absolutely inlove with it. I got to pick my own fabric , elastic , patterns , ect. and I will never forget it. I was so eager to sew I couldn't wait a day , as soon as I got home I asked my mother to explain how to use it , & I immediately started ... my mom said I should practice doing straight lines & learning how to control the peddle. Saturday I made my shirt using a McCall pattern, that was kinda of time consuming , but not really that hard , and sunday I made the pencil skirt following my moms tutorial on youtube , and that was super fun especialy using elastic. I absolutely love to sew , and I will keep you guys posted on the clothes I make! <3 xoxo

Love, Lexi G.

The first outfit I made!

Hey guys! Im sorry I haven't posted lately but like I promised school comes first , & I just started school on tuesday & Its soo amazing ! All summer long I have been itching for school to start and now its finally here and I couldn't be more happier. I have all college prep classes , which is a little bit of a challenge , but so far im doing pretty well & understanding most of it . They have plenty of videos describing different units and lessons for anyone that needs help with school. I LOVE K12 HOME-SCHOOL lol :D !  I know if I continue the right path that I'm on I will succeed!
