Made By A Fabricista: A Mother's Day Treat

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be back for my second blog !!! Every Mother’s Day I treat myself to a new dress (ok… shoes, too!) and my husband treats me to brunch.  For inspiration this year, I watched several runway shows online.  I liked the comfortable laid-back look, but not the Little House on the Prairie or tiered styles.  I was attracted to the floaty, loose fitting maxi-length tent dresses with big sleeves; they reminded me of the 1980s.  The silk dresses I liked cost thousands; the discounted ones were priced over $500. No way was I going to pay that much for a dress, especially when I can sew it for less!  Besides, the colors were not for me. I decided to make a similar dress; Vogue V1699 maxi was the right silhouette.  I searched the Fabric Mart website for several days until one day, THE fabric came at me - a silk and lycra stretch Charmeuse in geometric print of black, white, and pale yellow!  The colors were energizing, bright, and happy.  It had been awhile since I

Made by a Fabricista: A Fruity Spring Dress

After a year in yoga pants and sweatshirts all I want to sew are dresses. Big, over the top, wonderfully floaty dresses. I loved this fruity chiffon border print from the moment I saw it and knew it had to become one such dress. Much like florals, I absolutely adore fruit prints on fabric, so to find a fabric with both was a real treat. Chiffon is one of those fabrics a lot of sewists seem to be afraid of, and I don't blame them, it can be very tricky to work with. However, I strongly believe in doing difficult things, because the end is so worth it and you have the chance to learn new things along the way. I've only sewn with chiffon a couple times before so I decided to go with a pattern that didn't have any tricky closures and or require a lot of careful fitting. I ended up settling on Simplicity 8872, view A – a maxi length pullover dress with a tiered skirt and cap sleeves. I started with a small bust adjustment (SBA). I do this with nearly every pattern because I tend

Made by a Fabricista: Living in Linen

As the warmer weather approaches linen is probably one of my favorite fabrics that I feel often gets overlooked.   It drapes well, it’s cool and comfortable and you can make almost anything out of it. For this feature I used 4 yards of designer linen to create a vintage inspired look.  I had an image of a vintage Butterick pattern from the 60’s that I had saved on my Pinterest board.  I love the versatility and easiness of the style.  Since I did not have access to the pattern, I used similar patterns from my stash along with my own pattern drafting to replicate the style.  In the end I created 4 pieces total allowing for interchangeable looks. To create the skirt I used McCall’s pattern 7981 which is almost I identical to the on featured on the vintage pattern.  The shorts pattern was McCall’s 7962.  They are perfect to wear underneath the skirt for a layered look or by themselves. The bralette was self-drafted, I took my basic bodice sloper and moved the dart to create a center fron
