Hey Family….I know it’s been a while and you’ve been looking for me…right???… lol….WELL I’M BACKKKK!!! I hope you missed me as much as I’ve missed you. I promise I wont be gone for this long again.
So, let me tell you what’s new. I’m approaching a new chapter/milestone in my life. I’ll be 40 this year on August 28th (God Willing) and I’m SOOOO FREAKING EXCITED about it. I’ve heard people say life begins in your forties and I now understand why…….
In my late teens and twenties is was all about fun, parties, and learning how to be a mom. Yes, I was a teen mom. In my thirties, I was beginning to see what life was all about and learning what I wanted out of life. As I approach my forties, life has a whole new meaning. I now know how important it is to build a legacy. How important it is to be okay with who YOU are and enjoy the process!!! Live life to the fullest because we are not promised tomorrow!! So with that let’s DO THIS!!!
When I taught my self how to sew back in 2014 I didn’t think I would get through my 1st garment. It was a disaster to say the least. And now here we are in 2019 and I’m sharing with you my favorite 40 makes, WOW!!! What a blessing. I’ve decided to share with you 40 of my favorite me made garments leading up to my 40th birthday.
I love the versatility of this pattern McCall’s 6886 Although it may seam like a plain pattern you can do so much with it. I used this black see through sequenced lace with a white knit for the lining.
I added a fur like trimming to the bottom of the skirt and added a black satin bias binding to the neckline and arm holes.
I’m hoping you stay along and enjoy my Forty ’til 40 me made makes. I have special gifts and giveaways along the ride leading up to my 40th birthday. Let’s have a party y’all!!
See you soon!
Much Love and Blessings,
