Inspiration: Sewing Room Jealousy.

Yep. I have a weakness for stalking adorable sewing rooms.
Don't act like you don't!
Ever since I found Pinterest I have been keeping a collection of beautiful sewing spaces.
We have an album on the Fabric Mart Pinterest! http://pinterest.com/fmfabrics/sewing-studios/

I picked a few of my favorites to show you as I daydream about what 
I want my own future sewing studio to look like. 
I love these pops of color and cute chairs!

Made by a Fabricista: Inspired by Ready to Wear

Do you see cute clothes in stores or online and think to yourself "I can make that!"? It happens to me often! I was a pretty big clothing shopper before I began sewing. And though I still buy clothes when I find a great deal, I usually end trying to recreate the outfit instead of buying. That is what happened with this jumpsuit. This black and white jumpsuit leaped out to me when I was scrolling through the gram. If you know me I love black and white, stripes and jumpsuits, so it's no surprise this was love at first sight.When I saw this Be Stripe Back Jumpsuit by Kiomios I immediately thought of McCalls 8047 as the overall shape is similar. I sewed the bottoms straight from the pattern. Yes, I could've added slant pockets like the inspiration photo, but I didn't want to add any bulk. I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…
