New Fabrics, New Ideas

Hey lovelies!

I have been focusing my energy on sewing.  It’s one of my favorite hobbies.  To me it’s more than a hobby, but like an escape.  It’s therapy to me.  I recently have gotten some really cool fabrics that I want to play around with.

I have updated some of my sewing tool.

I started having issues with my upper threading popping a few days ago. I did a thorough cleaning and oiling to my machine to keep it functioning correctly.  I have done and tried everything…so I will have to get my machine professionally serviced.  So, I will be sewing by hand which should be fun. I made a few garments that I will share later.

I am currently working with this fabric.  I like sneakers and I had an idea about what I want to do.

Sending positivity your way!

Hello lovelies,

This is a look that I would wear.  It’s simple and edgy.  If you have graphic tees like me, you can dress it up with a nice pencil skirt and some cute heels or booties.  I like hounds-tooth prints it classic and you dress it up or make it casual. You can ditch the heel for some flats, sneakers, or sandals.  It’s all about having fun with what you have!

Smooches,

Brandi

Hey Peeps!

This look is for my comic book and sci-fi  lovers. The highlight of this look is the Avengers skirt.  I love the Marvel Avengers.    I chose to dress up this look by adding a blazer, a stylish handbag, and peep toe booties. All of the colors compliments the skirt.  By the way, I am looking for the fabric of this skirt if anyone finds some let me know.  Talk to ya soon!
