What to Wear: 4th of July.

I'm going to throw it out there and say my favorite part of any holiday is figuring out what I am going to wear for the occasion. I take great precaution in planning my outfit like it's my red carpet appearance. I think this quote "Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway" puts it best. And as a fabricista, I enjoy taking the time to make that perfect outfit.  I sketched out two ideal outfits from my favorite red, white, and blue fabrics from Fabric Mart for this patriotic season.

Outfit for the Ladies: 
A shirt dress with pintuck bodice and pockets. 
Easy to wear and comfortable. 
Match with a strappy sandal and you have a perfect 4th of July outfit! 

[ Pima Cotton is closely compared to Egyptian Cotton. 
It is a high quality cotton that is very soft and fine which makes 
it a great choice for dresses and dress shirts. ]

Gentlemen: 
Don't forget to make your love a coordinating outfit for your outings! 
Make him a laid back dress shirt and a pair of linen flat front shorts to compliment your dress. 

You'll look like a perfect pair! 

But SURE. I only give you this idea now! Don't worry, there are plenty of patriotic holidays you can pull this sweet set out on. Or if you are like me with a huge fabric stash you might only get to it next year! (in that case this post came in perfect timing!) 
Happy sewing and have a beautiful 4th of July, everyone! - Kaitlin

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more.

My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black. She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!
