I know I've Been M.I.A....

Posted by Alethia on August 22, 2015 at 5:49pm 2 Comments

I just wanted to peep in and say HELLO!!! I know it's been a long while since I've posted anything here. I do try to keep up with what's going on, even try to share your posts. I may have missed some, so forgive me. I have been quite busy with client's work. Mostly bridal and formal alterations. I even made a wedding gown. I did manage to get a few pieces in there for myself. I can't wait to catch up, hopefully soon. 

I have a lot of things on the horizon for me. Doors of opportunity are opening for me to move more on the design side of things, but more about that much later.

I am also in the process of restructuring/branding my business to incorporate the many things that I do. So, there may be, or shall I say will be changes to most of my social media sites. Either way, I'll keep you posted of any changes there will be.

I want to take this time to say that I am TRULY thankful for you time and your presence on this website!! I enjoy seeing Sew Much Talent that's coming from all over the world. 

Until I make it back to this site, I want to leave you with a preview of one of my blogposts....Here's a picture of the costume of Olivia the Pig that I made for one of my youngest clients...

In the meantime, please follow me on Facebook at Sew Much Talent or on Instagram @mesewlot.

Peace and Blessings!


Neoprene w/ McCall 7121

Posted by Sheila on July 29, 2015 at 9:45am 0 Comments

McCalls 7121 is my everything pattern.  I truly love this pattern, the simple silhouette, ease of construction and having done it up in a knit as well as a woven... win win.
This version was really an experiment, as I'd mention in my previous post, I was told that this fabric is neoprene.  Honestly, I was skeptical because I had the mind set that it was a thick rubber, hot, and sweltering fabric.  Then last year, I had the luck ofpurchasing a dress labelled scuba and got a better sense of what the fabric really was, but must admit it was a bit thick and too warm for the August weather last year.However, I was curious when I came across various sewing bloggers modeling their fabulous scuba/neoprene garments. 
Well, I just threw caution to the wind and worked up a quick dress in this thin black, soft butter smooth and spongy fabric.  I didn't bother to wash it, just wanted to see what the hell I was working with.  It serged up like a charm, but before I pressed on to the neckline and armholes, decided to throw it in the washing machine and see what I was still working with.
