How are you all doing? I am doing great! I am also finally back home because my 1st semester of pharmacy school is over! I can't believe it!! These past 3.5 months flew by kinda fast. My first semester in SOP is definitely one I will always remember. It started out a bit rocky while I try to figure out the full-time grad school life but by the grace of God I was about figure it out. I thank God everyday for letting me to choose my school because as stressful as it was, my "Pharmily" (i.e classmates/friends and professors) were always there to support and encourage me. The wealth of knowledge in terms of pharmacy practice I have gained these past months is simply astonishing to me. I feel so fulfilled as a Student Pharmacist that I am so looking forward to my future as a Pharmacist.
On to today's outfit post, the last time I came home for the weekend I was able to quickly make a dress that I wore to church that Sunday. I made a printed cold shoulder shift dress and I absolutely love the way it turned out. I am kinda obsessed with the cold shoulder trend at the moment so you will definitely be seeing more of it in upcoming posts. I paired the bold printed dress with a navy sleeveless cold and nude pumps. I am in the process of planning my sewing projects for the next few weeks, so stay tuned for more DIY posts. I also have a pattern review below for those that sew.
P.S: I know I was not really consistent with my blog posts while I was in school but I wanna thank and appreciate everyone that stuck around, YOU ALL ROCK!!!
 Pattern Review: New Look 6467
Pattern Description: Misses' shift dresses feature straight hem, V-neck with or without ties, and cold shoulder or 3/4 sleeves with slit, or rounded hemline with boat neck and short or 3/4 rounded sleeves. 
Pattern Sizing: It came in a size 10 - 22
Fabric Used: Voila for You by Vlisco 100% Cotton Fabric
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes super easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the flutter shoulder cut-out detail plus it has different sleeve variations
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? I lengthened the dress by 3 inches and the sleeves by 2 inches. I also removed the side pockets because my hips were making it stick out, and that didn't look nice. So if you are curvy like I am, I doubt the side pockets will work.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't think I will sew it again cos I have a lot shift dress patterns in my stash that I wanna sew but I will definitely recommend it if you want a simple shift dress with different sleeve variations.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!

  2. I love the butterfly & checkered dress that you made! It looks very different than the pattern. It looks much better on you than in the pattern drawing. Plus, the fabric print is so celebratory...
