McCall's 6841 Remake, A Concert and An Announcement…

Hey everyone...remember me? I missed you all and hope you missed me too! I have not been sewing for sometime, so recently I worked on a couple of things and it really made me want to get back into the 2nd love of my life… "Sewing" of course! (The first love is my family!!)

My husband and I recently went to the Janet Jackson concert (her Unbreakable Tour) and of course like a average woman you know I needed something new to wear! I started off working on a dress that I thought would be really cute for the occasion…that immediately got sacked after I tried the completed dress on! (more on that in another post, LOL!).

I had this beautiful yellow sweater fabric in my stash I'd purchased from Michael Levine quite sometime ago (it's no longer available). I decided to use it with McCall's 6841...

that turned out to be a great choice! Because I had made this twice before I was used to working with the pattern. And I needed to get something done very quickly since this was made the day of the concert! (Nothing like waiting to the last minute, LOL!). I made this version sleeveless and made one slight change to the sleeveless version... I brought the armhole edges in towards the neckline approximately 1" for more of an expose shoulder. (The old girl wants to be a little sexy, sexy!) I have to say the fabric really made this top!!…

I wanted to make sure to got some pictures of the actual top on me, but unfortunately, the only ones I have are cell phone shots the Hubby took in the hotel and one at the actual concert...
This top paired with some black leggings and of course some killer 5" Black heels…made me feel absolutely FABULOUS!! My husband and I had a wonderful time and Janet was the ultimate professional who put on a great show! This was a great way to start my new life which leads me to my announcement…

I finally took the plunge and RETIRED from corporate!!! New life, New blog look and a New Attitude! Blogging can now be a full part of my life...can anyone say YEAH, HALLEUJAH!!! It's been a really long time coming and I'm so happy it's finally here! We'll be talking again very soon and thank you all so much for stopping by and giving me a little bit of your time!

Let's Go Sew!
