How Much for the Kitty In the Window

Well as many know i dont have kids….and the jury is out if i even like kids lol but i have a cat thats my baby


Aint he cute?

His name was Isis until i found out he was a he and not a she… yes i have a thing for Egyptian names my first cat’s name was cleo short for Cleopatra

I have had Osiris for about 3 years..he is a big baby but i love him….


The Weather Outside is Frightful

Yes folks it is cold out there…now mind you not as cold as my home town of Chicago but cold enough. So what did the craft Diva do? I made myself a jumper,

It is a simplicty Pattern which i will have to scan and post. It was VERY simple i need to make a couple more of these to wear on the go. The Material is a stretch knit with the funky circles and sheer stripe. I plan to wear a white men’s shirt or a white turtle neck under it.

The Stretch knit was a beast to work with and cut out *my first time* but it was not too bad after i got the hang of it. Great relaxing way to spend my Thanksgiving weekend…


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..Thats right ladies its Christmas time woohoo *i will blog the holiday later*

But that is not what this blog is about today…. its about the Wrap better yet the Convertible Dress and one up and coming designer has made them for the plus sized gal…. Monif C. She has some AMAZING convertible dresses and other items for the plus sized woman. Here are a couple of pics from her website:

Isn’t this dress amazing….it looks great on so many women and body types…..*bows to Monif C* for having the plus size woman in mind making this GREAT GREAT DRESS…….

Now to get one for the Holiday Party at work….

The Size of It All

Ok I know it has been a minute since I last blogged, but I was uber busy and i have not had a chance to make any thing new. My good online buddy has been looking for some fall dresses, she is a size Large *reformed chunky girl gone missy size* any whoo she has been showing me some cute dresses that would work for a plus sized body as well, but does the store carry them in plus…..NOPE!!!!

Now for the life of me i can not see why these cute lil frocks would not be in a plus size.

This Dress is too cute but a last it is not in a plus size which i do not understand. Here is another

Both of these dresses could easily be made in a plus size and look very flattering on most plus sized women.

Why do some stores and designers think that if you are a plus sized woman you are 70 years old? Why would they think that a 34 year old woman because she is not a missy size would want to look like her grandmother?

This has been a thorn in my side for years, one of the reasons I sew, and i am going to start sewing more and making more time to sew. these 3 dresses are simple to make and just takes finding the right pattern, and if need be i will make my own freaking pattern. I am sick and tired of the mammie made clothes they try to pawn off on plus sized women.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So to my Thick lub sista’s out there let me here you sound off about some of these ugly ass clothes many of these department stores try to get us to wear…….

Holla if you hear me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
