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: Luxe Viscose Rayon Wrap Dress

I've always loved long flowy dresses that skim the floor, no matter what the season is. However, particularly around the Springtime! It's been a while since I've created one but since Spring is right around the corner I'm getting the itch to add them to my wardrobe.  For this months Fabricista feature, I sharing a selection from Fabric Mart's gorgeous viscose rayon collection.  I fell in love with this beautiful viscose rayon fabric which, if you know viscose, you know it  is the perfect fabric for a flowy floor length piece. It's lightweight, yet still opaque, fluid and soft to the touch.  Also, I think viscose is just heavy enough that it's not annoyingly slippery and hard to handle as satin and silks.  Needless to say I was taken by this bold vibrant print! If you know some of my previous pieces I've made, bold and vibrant is my jam! I chose to create a rendition of my Early Spring KnowMe Pattern ME 2020. It's a wrap woven wrap dress with cargo po

I got the challenge and I was super excited to have an extra few days and then before I could even get started I ended up in the eme

Made By A Fabricista: Let’s Make a Leather Bag

Hi Guys! I’m trying something a little different today.  We are going to make a leather bag.  I was looking around the Fabric Mart website for fabric for my next project and I came across Sue’s Pick.  The fabric choice for that day was this gorgeous black leather fabric. The best part was that the leather was only $20 a piece.  When I received it at home, I couldn’t believe how soft the leather was. I was in love. First, we are going to make the pattern and then we’ll sew it up.  You are going to need a ruler, pencil, and scissors to draft the pattern. Purse Pattern Main Pattern Piece – Cut 2 1. Make a 14 x 16 rectangle.   2. At the bottom of this pattern piece, you will cut a 2 x 2 square on each side. 3. At the top of this pattern piece, measure in 1” on each side and then measure from that point down to the corner of the cut-out square at the bottom. Cut that piece off. Pocket Piece – Cut 1 4. Make a 7 x 10 square. 5. Go in ½” at the top and go down 3” on each side. Cut th
