THE Q EFFECTZ WHATSAPP GROUP: COMING SOON!

THE Q EFFECTZ WHATSAPP GROUP: COMING SOON!

Hi guys!
So I'm here thinking "What if we start a Whatsapp group?"
I've been thinking about it a lot lately coupled with the fact that I have been getting a great deal of suggestions from you guys on whats app via the number listed above. Through this group, perhaps everyone would be able to come together, especially the sew lovers who need urgent help with various sewing challenges. We can share ideas, help one another and improve our skills.

 Note to Opera-mini users:  
Kindly switch to your default browser or any other browser(Chrome/Firefox/UCbrowser) to enjoy the full functionality of TheQEffectz.

I think this is a great idea. Although I do not want this group to be limited to sewing, pattern-making and diys. I want it to also be a place where everyone can share their stories/writeups and seek opinions or counsels concerning their personal lives and romantic relationships. This is one critical area in the Q Effectz that we do not want to neglect or take for granted no matter what. As much as we want to help inspire and build you up skillfully, we also want to do so psychologically, morally and spiritually. We want to help build both self-sufficient and independent men and women, especially here in Nigeria.
Although, non-Nigerians are also welcome.

Read more about us, here
By the way, I also think this group will be a great way to work with one another by either sourcing each other's help skillfully/gainfully or by sharing news on various job opportunities and vacancies out there that could help improve one's life. 
I want the group to be a place where we all meet to build one another, so please think about it and let me know if this is a good idea by leaving your thoughts, opinions on the comment box below. Hopefully by the beginning of 2017, it will move from just a thought or idea to a reality.
However, I do not want to be the one to manage this group. This is because I have so much on my plate already; so many social media to pay attention to, so many comments to reply and so many mails to read and respond to. I really need your help you guys. Join my team today. Let's change the world together.

If you are willing to do this for me, kindly send your interest to quincy@theqeffectz.com or chat with me on Whatsapp @ 08030971467.
By the way, before I go, have you uploaded the image/photo of the outfit, shoes, jewelries or crafts you've made to take part in TheQEffectz December Sewing Competition?
If you haven't? What are you waiting for?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE FOR THE YEAR 2016?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE FOR THE YEAR 2016?

Hi Moviefreaks.
What's up? How is it going?
With the year coming to an end, I'm just here wondering what your favorite movies are/were for the year. 
2016 brought in a lot of new and old super hero flicks, reboot on some classics, sequels and a lot of award wining animation.
Hell, I think Animations are breaking more grounds than films and who knew "Finding Dory 2" could literally shake up the movie world with roughly over $213million in its first week?
Like wow! 
I don't know about you guys, but when I finally succumb to my inner goddess who is a movie producer and script writer, Animation will be my franchise.
Anyway, before I give my personal review of the movies this year, let me quickly jog your memory of some, if not all the box office movies for this year
There are also:
  1.  Hell or High Water
  2.  Inferno
  3. Ice Age: Collison Course
  4.  Miss peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
  5. 10 Cloverfield Lane
  6. La La Land
  7. Deep water Horizon
  8. The Accountant
  9. War Dogs
  10. Don't Breathe
  11. The Girl on The Train
  12.  Zoolander 2
  13. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows
  14. The Angry Birds Movie
  15. Sing Street
  16. Passengers
  17. Sully
  18. The Conjuring 2
  19. Me Before you
  20. Midnight Special
  21. Now You See Me 2
  22.  Assassin's Creed
 See more here

Currently in the Box office are:

  1. Moana
  2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them
  3. Arrival
  4. Allied
  5. Doctor Strange
  6. Trolls
  7. Hacksaw Strange
  8. Bad Santa 2
  9. Incarnate
  10. Almost Christmas
Personally, my favorites for the year are....
Hmm you know what? why don't you share yours with me first. Looking forward to reading from you.

What is a High-low Dress?

A High-low dress as the name suggests, is a dress whose length at the front is shorter than the back. It was first introduced as skirts but can now be incorporated in shirts, blouse, jackets, and of course dresses.

Requirement:

1. Super wide Pattern Paper: Six super wide pattern papers and these could be newspaper, cardboard or scrap fabrics.
2. Already made blouse: This will serve as reference
3. Pen/pencil/marker
4. Measuring tape and ruler
5. Tracing wheel

Procedures:

 To make a High-low dress pattern, you’ll beginning by (a) Preparing the bodice, and then (b) Preparing the circle skirt/peplum (c) Making the “high-low”

(a) Preparing the bodice: To prepare the bodice, you will have to make a crop blouse which comprises of a ¾ bodice, that is, a bodice which stops on the waist/belly. Therefore this section will be divided into (i) Making the front piece and (ii) Making the back pieces (iii)inserting darts.

(i) Making the front piece: To make the front piece of the bodice, fold your pattern paper into equal halves, and then place the front of your already-made blouse (which should already be folded into equal halves), on the folded area of your pattern paper. Trace the sides of your already made blouse an inch away from your already made blouse on your pattern paper but stop at the waist/belly region. The 1 inch is to accommodate for seam allowance.

When done, remove your already-made and your front piece(still folded in equal halves) will look like this:
When you open it up, it will look like this:

(ii) Making the back pieces: To make the back pieces, fold your second paper pattern (which should be bigger in length than your front piece) into equal halves. Place your front piece 1.5 inches away from the folded area and trace all its sides on your pattern paper. The 1.5Inches is to accommodate for zip allowance.

When done, remove your front piece and cut out what you have traced. Your back piece (still folded in equal halves) will look like this:

Cut through the folded area to create two pieces. When you open up your pieces, they will look like these.

(iii) Inserting darts: See how to insert darts, here.
When done, your front piece with darts will look like this:



While your back pieces with darts, will look like these.


(b) Preparing the circle skirt: See how to make a circle skirt, here .
When done, your circle skirt with zip allowance will look like this:


(c) Making the “High-Low”: To make the high low, following the steps below:
Step 1: Open up your circle skirt and cut into two equal halves, separating the front and backs piece. Like this:



Step 2: Fold the front piece back into equal halves. Like this:

And then, measure from the folded area, the distance between your waist and knee and mark.

Step 3: Draw an arc from the knee point to the non-folded area, as shown in the photo below

Step 4: then cut through the arc you have made and your front piece still folded in equal halves will look like this:

When you open it up, it will look like this:

And you are done
