It’s In The Shape Wear


It’s In The Shape Wear

The appropriate undergarments  give you a smoother and sleek final look. Shape wear is a fabulous way to disguise your less perfect parts and create a gorgeous silhouette.

The goal is to tighten up  those not so firm areas and feeling as comfy at the same time.  Comfort is key in making shape wear work for you!  There are all types of shape wear out there look for ones that will fit your needs.  For example some fabrics can be breathable enough to wear during summer, while others may be heavier for a firmer control. If you need a little extra help creating a shapely figure and you want to minimize the bulge, try the shape wear that fits your needs.

Refashioned And On Trend

 Refashioned And On Trend


Ok so both sustainability and fashion are both important to me so I decided to kill one bird with two stones.  Well not really kill a bird but, you know what I mean.  I decided to turn an old garment into a new garment. So, I put my designer’s hat on and off to the races I went.  It was pretty easy.  So, here’s how I refashioned a pair of old jeans:

*  I Used a pair of my most comfy skinny jeans as a pattern.

*  I cut the inside seam to reshaped the old jeans(bell bottoms) into a skinner leg, leaving a  5/8 seam allowance.

*  I measured two rectangular pieces of the floral or contrasting fabric, cut and zig zag stitched the contrasting fabric to the jeans.

*  I  stitched the open seams(inside seams).

*  Pressed open the new seams and Wha La!

I love my new jeans!  Floral prints are on trend and based on your body type skinny jeans can be chic!

How do you refashion? We would love to know…….Leave a comment:

Knowing Your Body Matters


 Your Body Matters

Knowing your body shape and proportions can help you to look your best, boost your self confidence and  save you valuable time.

  Are you ready to  be your best but, you are not sure where to start?  Knowing your body really does matter.

Accessories And The Full Figured Woman

Accessories should be proportional with your body shape. For a full figured woman this means you would wear chunkier jewelry, carry a bigger bag, wear a thicker belt and don’t forget to add heels to elongate the legs.  Small accessories will get lost on a fuller body frame.
