butterick 5351 & Simplicity suede 0445

Hey guys hope you had a great holiday weekend! We had a barbecue with family and friends. I love when we all get together. Well I did get some sewing in before the holiday.












Pattern: Butterick 5351


Fabric: cotton from JoAnn fabric for 2.50 a yard off the clearance rack.


Conclusion: Super easy dress. It call for a 16" zipper so I did a invisible zipper. I have to say I am getting better with that.



I also did some sewing for my niece.





Pattern: Simplicity Suede 0445


Fabric: cotton from JoAnn fabric for 2.50 a yard.


Conclusion: Super cute and super easy! I think this is a cute skirt that most teenagers would like. It calls for a invisible zipper more practice for me.



In the month of I think March I decided to go natural with my hair without the big chop. Yep no more perms. I made this decision after talking to my dd. My dd is always asking me to put a perm in her hair and I would always say noooo! I told her she didn't need a perm because her hair is beautiful like it is. Sooooo one day she told me if our hair is beautiful why do you have a perm. After that I told her I will not put another perm in my hair.I love it and when I don't love it I put on a wig LOL.The style I have in the pic is a week old twist out. My dd loves that we are doing this together. The things we do for our kids.


Well that's it for me. Happy crafting to all!!! : )

First: When I first started reading the post the first thing I noticed was your hair I thought Is she going natural? cause I liked the "new" look. Then I focused on the dress which is totally cute by the way. Then: I read on about your daughter's "observations" and the hair and I am all smiles! Way to go!

Hey, Jada,

Great results on your latest creations. And congrats on going natural! My 3rd year anniversary of being natural is coming up next month. I took to wearing wigs four months ago, and I love it. It gave me a break from styling my hair, and it's a great protective style. There are so many helpful blogs and forums out there for us naturals. Good luck on your journey!
