Made by a Fabricista: Cotton and Ponte Tops for Spring!

Happy Saturday All,
I just can't believe we are a few days away from Spring! 2019 is going by so fast and I am ready to create pieces that will transition into summer.  South Florida weather temperature is typically in the 70s and 80s but we have had a few cooler days last month.  I should not be complaining as some states are still experiencing cold temperatures during this time of year.  Even though most of the time we have sunshine, I wanted to create two cute tops made with ponte knit and cotton shirting that can be worn on cooler days this Spring.

Made By A Fabricista: 3 Chambray Pieces

McCall's vintage top 4028 in chambray voile

Hey everybody, it's hard to believe that spring is just ten days away as we are in the midst of another snow storm here in Eastern Canada. Despite the bad weather I'm making some spring pieces and my theme for this month is: chambray!

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Sewing!

I am getting tired of winter.  It's lingering.  It's cold.  I need spring.  I need new clothes.  Ok, done whining!  

I needed some basic colored tops in some not so basic shapes.  These two fit the bill.  
The ivory is a Linen/Cotton/Rayon blend.  Pictures don't do the fabric justice.  It has a lovely shine and drape.  If you've never checked out Fabric Mart's linen section, you need to!  The fabric is so pretty, is high quality, and never disappoints me.

Made by a Fabricista: Stripes for All

Twinning!


My husband was appalled when he realized that I had made the two of us garments from the same fabric, and not for the first time.

Made by a Fabricista: Pre-Spring Suede and Silk





Tippi dress style
I'm always pushing myself to learn more about fabric. If there's a fabric that I'm not familiar with, I don't shy away from just getting some to see just what can be done with it. So it was with this suede knit and silk taffeta I took on for this month's project.
