I hope you are all enjoying my new blog and some of my fashions.  As the weeks go by, I will continue adding more of my work.  However, beyond being a seamstress and applying my creative genes to fabric, there is a deeper spiritual side to me.  It's an individual who loves the Lord and spends her Saturdays with Christ.  Yes, I am Seventh Day Adventist and I enjoy honoring the Lord's sabbath from sundown on Friday until sunset on Saturday.  After all, God create this world in 6 days and rested on the sabbath day.  The Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it (made it holy.). So, have a good weekend.  As for me, I will be......

I usually do not make dresses with patterns though I am trying to be disciplined enough to do so but this dress was made without a pattern.  In fact it was a trial dress.  I wanted to see if I was able to create a hi-lo dress.  So, here is my first hi-lo in this beautiful pattern.  I like the hi-lo concept and thought this turned out well.  So here is my Hi-lo maxi dress action.  Model: Peggy

It is so rare that I make a dress for myself but recently I found this material at Save-A-Thon and fell in love with it.  I love my fabric stores in Manhattan but Save-A-Thon never fails me.  I love that place.  This fabric is a thick stretch cotton in animal print and I have paired it with a belt.  I made this dress in about 2 hours.  Tell me what you think.

I was at one of my favorite fabric stores in Manhanttan and I found this fabric.  It had not even hit the showroom yet and I made sure to grab some of it.  I thought it made the perfect summer dress.  It is a bright yellow with black flowers -- doesn't sound too great in words but definitely beautiful in pictures.  Now, because I am excited about my new blog, I am also going to attach the video I made of me making this dress.  This video is on my youtube channel DarcyRo4u.  So below is the dress and also the link to the video.  Model:  Satara

Okay, now let's see if I can truly attach the link to the video.  This way you can learn how to sew this dress for yourself. 
I love you for watching......Ok, now I sound like Wendy Williams.
If you could not tell, I just created this blog so I am quite excited about sharing some of my hard work.  Here is another one of my pieces.  This is in fact the first dress I have ever made to wear to a wedding.  It is a slightly stretch fabric with some bedazzling around the waist and a floral piece (also bedazzled by me) on the shoulder.  Tell me what you think. 

Vintage Polka Dot Dress

I got this really great fabric a couple months ago in Michigan and immediately I knew I wanted to create a vintage inspired dress with a pop of color.  So here is what I eventually came up with.  This dress was just showcased in a fashion show at my church.  Tell me what you think.  Model: Satara

This blog is all about my sewing ventures.  My biggest hobby is sewing and I have created this blog to show the world some of my stuff.  Comment and leave me your thoughts.  This is one of my spring collection dresses.  Green and silver brocade flared dress.  Model: Satara
