Hello Everyone. Lets take a sneak peak of what I’m currently working for my upcoming Punta Cana trip. McCall’s patterns recently put out their new spring patterns and when I tell you I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this pattern. I searched high and low to find it. I just knew this would be the perfect getup for my trip. It’s sexy, flirty, and fun. So, I wanted something very loud and full of color for this look; I found this royal green gauze fabric at Joann fabric. This is the perfect fabric for this outfit and for this occasion because it thin, lightweight, flowy, and comfortable….the perfect beach attire, right?
The pattern instructions were pretty clear and straight forward, I didn’t have any issues. However, I made a couple of changes. Because I like my pants “hitting the floor”..lol.. I added a few inches to the pants. I achieved this by cutting the pants pattern piece at the “lengthen line” that’s written on the pattern, measured how much I wanted to add, inserted some craft paper to fill in that extra space by taping the paper by both ends to actual pattern pieces, and wow that’s it….. there’s your new altered pattern piece. Lastly, I wanted my top to be a little longer, so I eliminated the elastic in the bottom half of the top. Stay tuned to see the finished results.
Be Blessed. I hope you all enjoyed the post.
XOXOXO….Ms. Kim Austin
