Past Projects - Bleu Ruffle


This was one of my harder projects at the time, fitting cap sleeves & trying to sew on these beautiful ruffles!  I again used bias tape for the neck and armholes as well....I love bias tape!

Sew you later.

Fashion Friday


One of my fave silk skirts, I made this of my own design and added black bias tape to the hem.
This skirt gets a lot of wear and I do hand wash.


Sew you later!

A year later......


It has been 1 year since I made a lifestyle
change to better my health, rather than surgery.
I was lucky, I still had the choice.
So under my doctors care:

I joined a gym.


Working out 6 days a week the first 3 months
 cardio & classes only.
I did get a Personal Trainer into my 3rd month
of training once I started lifting weights.
I now work out 4 to 5 days a week.


I changed my meals as I did not eat red meat the 
first couple of months.  I ate chicken, cod, salmon, eggs, 
multigrain bread & salads.  
Water.....10 glasses a day.
I did still drink green wine with my dinner
lets not get too crazy here!
After I starting lifting weights I went back to eating
meats but mostly steak.


I am back to being fit....more so I feel now.  
I feel like I have more energy,  my skin feels rejuvenated
and I am stronger than when I was in my 20's!

Skirt made by me.

Happy Canada Day!


Hello sewing friends!
Happy Canada Day!
It is also my blog anniversary too, 5 years!
  It's been awhile since I 
posted but I finally made something to blog about.


A little DIY from the "husbands" tee


So very easy, just cut off the sleeves, cut to make the ties,


A little serging to take in sides, clean up & done!
Skirt is made from a jersey blend, designed to fit me,
2 pattern pieces...front & back, sew in a  waist band 
& that's about it.


I am on instagram daily @deniseangela & if you have an account 
I would love to follow your sewing blogs there as well too.

Sew you later!

Painter's Dress


A dress iMade from this fabulous jersey fabric 
that looks like splattered paint.


I used New Look 6149 for the bodice & I added
a black ruffle along the neckline for a little prettiness.
I like this raglan sleeve top pattern 
that was very easy to sew.

 The skirt is my own design with the
hem cut at an angle that after all these years
I still love.



Sew you later!
