Made by a Fabricista: Burnout Cardigan

When selecting fabric for the website, I have to think about what a customer might do with it. Sounds easy right? Not always. I might really like a print, but the quality of the fabric might not be there. Or the fabric feels beautiful, but the mix of colors are very...blah! I also know that sometimes a fabric can be really cool but tricky to sell unless you give the customer an idea on how to use it. 

So I bring to your attention, Burnout Knit with Graffiti Print (#BCD4774). SOLD OUT

I'm addicted to the drapey-front cardigans that are very trendy right now. They are so comfortable and  versatile. The pattern I used is the Abby Cardi from StyleARC.com. This is something else I'm addicted to! (We will talk about this in another blog post!) The pattern is super easy. It only took 2 hours from cutting to finishing. 




There are other burnout stripe knits on our website. See all Burnout Knits

Here are some of my favorites:  
Left: BDB4776 - Burnout Knit Multi-dot on Stripe -Black/ Royal/ Mauve/ Off-white
Right: UVB4846-Paint Splatter-look Burnout Knit - Black/ Metallic Watermelon
So what else can you make with these knits? Dresses, skirts, loungewear, tops and more! For some of these options you will have to line the garment, but show off these fun prints in your next project!

Made By A Fabricista: Workwear Ready

I'm excited for my first post in 2023! At the beginning of the year, I recently went back to working in person so now I am looking to make and wear pieces that I can wear to work.  The goal is to be functional but also very fashionable since I am a fashion design professor. I saw this blue denim fabric and knew I wanted to make some pants; I just wasn’t sure what kind.  I decided to make Mimi G x Simplicity S8985 View B pants.  I liked the oversized flare look, I just made one slight modification to them by adding a pintuck along the front.  This was easy to add since the waistline was called to be slightly gathered to fit.  The fabric had a hand closer to linen and was very lightweight which was great and very satisfying to sew.  I lengthened the pants by 3” and finished with a 2” hem. The top I used Simplicity S9707.  It’s an oversized partial button down top.  I decided to create a high low hem by combining two different views.   I loved the print of the fabric but honestly as s

Made By A Fabricista: Spring into 2023 with Liberty of London!

Hi Fabricista Fans! I'm excited to be back with my first FabricMart project of 2023 and my second with Liberty of London Tana Lawn ! This fabric is so luxurious and wonderful to work with, I just can't pass it up whenever I see it come on sale! With such a high thread count, Liberty of London doesn't easily crush, and although it's 100% cotton, it's so flowy that it's perfect for billowy dresses, blouses, and skirts. With my $50 budget this month, I purchased 2 yards of Tana Lawn and made a Peony Patterns Rosemary Dress with inseam pockets for my youngest daughter. This is a gorgeous button down dress with long and short puff sleeve options. After cutting it out, I realized I had plenty leftover for a skirt for my eldest, so I whipped up the FREE Peony Patterns Apple Berry Skirt for her. Since she needed a top to go with it, I raided my stash for some additional fabric, and found a lovely eggshell Fabric Mart Rayon Lycra hidden away. (Don't worry, I still ha

Made By A Fabricista: A Denim Set for Spring

Happy Friday All! I am ecstatic to share my latest make that I had on my to make list for a while.  My goal for the month of February was to sew a mini vacation capsule for a trip, but unfortunately I did not get a chance to. I was able to make 3 of the 6 pieces including this denim set. When this beautiful denim fabric arrived, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I have been wanting to recreate a linen look I made a few years ago using the Montoya coat pattern with a few adjustments.  I created VIEW A without the peplum and lengthened it by 6 inches. Instead of sewing the tie inside the seam of the top like I did here, I wanted to make it separate so that it looks like a jumpsuit. (Read the blogpost here ). Moreover, my body has changed and I needed to cut a size larger so that I can rock it as an open vest or a top tucked in. I love the way it turned out but wish I had extended it by 8 inches instead of 6. For the pants, I went to my tried and true simplicity 8605 pants pattern and
