Made by a Fabricista: My Fall Ensemble

Hi everyone.  I am back and so eager to show you what I sewed for the transition to fall.   Our social calendar for the next three months is filling up so it is time to sew for fall.  Where I live, fall weather can vary from 60 to 80 degrees.  Linen is my “go to” fabric, especially for September and October.  Fabric Mart happened to have on sale the mid-weight navy /light blue linen with abstract geometric print. Due to the hugely discounted price, I could sew a fall ensemble that would consist of a duster, a pair of pants, and a sheath dress for about $50.00. Vogue V1756 pattern by Sandra Betzina caught my attention. It had a standup collar, buttoned front, and set-in sleeves, but its side front pockets hide behind a flange on each side front and the lower back had a gathered skirt. How unique! The pattern instructions, written by the designer herself, were easy to follow.  I sewed the duster in Size C and made no adjustments. Because of its style, color and maxi length, it can take m

Made by a Fabricista: Luxe Knits for A Classy and Yet Cozy Fall Wardrobe

Hello Fellow Sewists!  I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista make with you all, as I have started my transition in to sewing for Fall!  Now don’t get me wrong-I am by no means wishing summer away!  Summer is my favorite time of year here in Minnesota. But Fall is my second favorite. And I have done a ton of summer sewing. So I wanted to get a jump start on building a cozy, yet classy Fall wardrobe that will suit me perfectly as I’m at home more but still need to be put together for zoom meetings and running errands.  I chose two gorgeous sweater knit fabrics to work with for these outfits. I knew I wanted a great basic black knit fabric. And then I fell in love with the floral knit fabric as soon as I saw it!  So I am excited that I got to work with both.  My original intention was to make a mix and match wardrobe but as I thought about it, I hardly ever actually mix and match things!  So instead, I decided to use one of my favorite wrap dress patterns, Butterick 5454. I have made

Made by a Fabricista: The Perfect Statement Fabric

I’m 100% one of those people that select fabric solely based how I’m feeling in that moment.  I never have a project in mind or a look I want to make.  Once the fabric arrives and I get to touch it, within a few days the ideas start to come.  The only downside to this is a fabric stash that looks a bit like a retail store. When this double-faced satin suiting arrived, I initially considered a pant suit but thought this fabric was a little too special and at the last minute opted for something more dramatic despite having no place to where it.  I figured If nothing else, I can wear the skirt with a t-shirt for school drop-off lol. The top was made using a drafted bustier pattern with lots of boning and interfacing.  Definitely time consuming but well worth it.  I enjoy a nice dramatic sleeve and interfacing gave the sleeve enough structure to accomplish just that. The skirt was made using vintage McCalls 9260.  I have drawers and drawers filled with vintage patterns.  The beauty of vint
