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

Made by a Fabricista: For the Love of Flowy Dresses!

Hello Gems! I am so excited to share with you my first look as a Fabric Mart Fabricista! This season I have been so inspired by floor length dresses and flowy frocks so when I ran across this beautiful Pink Purple & Green Double Georgette, I knew it would make the perfect midi dress. (You can find the fabric  HERE  if it's still available!) First let me just start by saying, when I received this fabric I was elated. The colors are even more spectacular in person than online. This is a double georgette fabric so it is sheer but not transparent. It's lightweight and very drapey! With enough volume from gathers or ruffles, you could create a gorgeous frock possibly without any lining. If you are looking to create something a little more fitted I would definitely suggest going with a lining. However, this fabric is great for the Spring and Fall seasons and even with a little layering you can get away with wearing it in the winter, especially if your Winters aren’t too cold.  Fo

Made by a Fabricista: Frozen for Fashion

2021 Trendwatch: Frozen for Fashion @nicoleangelinesews It is cold. Just so, so cold here in the Midwest. However, my winter sewing got away from me and so instead of being behind, I want to get ahead with some spring makes. Since this is my first post as a Fabricista, I got a little ambitious and wanted to hit a bunch of 2021 trends: Pantone colors of the year, pastels, and the trench. With these points in mind, I scoured the Fabric Mart website and thanks to their amazing variety, found exactly what I was looking for. These makes felt a little odd to plan in February, but once they were done, I started to get giddy for it to start warming up here in the Midwest. Which will probably be in May. Also importantly, February is Black History Month, so I wanted to make with a Black designer’s pattern. The Black sewing community has been so crucial to my development as a sewist--they are a constant source of inspiration, joy, and help--and I wanted to highlight one designer’s work with this
