Made By A Fabricista: Sewing the Saguaro Set

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer.  I have been all about the bright colors and florals this season.  Never knew I liked florals as much as I do!  When I saw the Saguaro Set from Friday Pattern Company I smelled another matching set in my future.  I also knew that it would be made from a floral fabric.  Off I went on a search for floral fabric on the Fabric Mart site. Sewing the Saguaro Set The Saguaro Set Pattern is a woven top and pants set that is perfect for a lunch date with the girls or for the night out on the town.  The top features a deep V-neck with a tie option and flowy sleeves and an elastic waistband. The pants are wide leg pants with an elastic waistband and draw string. For the top, I made a size Large based on my body measurements and I thought it fit perfectly.  The pattern has an elastic guide but I didn't use it. I just put the elastic around my waist and tightened it until it was comfortable.  This top is very simple to put together and the pattern

Made By A Fabricista: Cool, Summery Cottons

Hello everybody! I set out to see what I could do with a gorgeous stack of mostly one-yard cuts, mostly cotton fabric, paired with some of my favorite tried-and-true patterns, to boost my summer wardrobe. Some days it’s too hot to think, you know? So producing some easy to grab-and-pair pieces to have at the ready will lighten the morning rush and make me feel pulled together as I usher the kiddos off to their activities. I chose some lightweight, mostly woven cotton fabrics that display big impact with their colors and prints, and also sort of (mostly?) go together. It’s not quite a capsule wardrobe, but I was inspired by that coordinating process.  I’ve sewn all of the following patterns (save for one) in the past, so I made some small changes to keep things fresh in the creative process, but these are all pretty true to their intended style..  First up, a Blank Slate Patterns Hathaway Tank with one yard of Golden Yellow/Light Salmon/Amaranth 100% Cotton Floral Print Lawn.

Made By A Fabricista: My Summer Dresses

Hello everyone! I am so happy it’s summer; it gives me energy.   I love the sunshine, the warm air, and the flowers that bloom this time of year.  This summer I want new dresses. They need to be comfortable during the summer heat.  They need to easily transition from casual day wear to an elevated evening outfit and look chic whether I am in sneakers, flats, or platform shoes.  I also want one of them will be white because I don’t own a white dress! I saw Vogue V1653 and was immediately taken by its comfortable style and the simplicity of the lapel collar.  I chose View D for its midi length and almost straight skirt.  The side seam pockets was a bonus. I would wear this dress with a sneaker around town or with platform shoes and a belt I already own for dinner with friends.  I selected Fabric Mart’s medium Persian blue 100% linen (SKU# UAA7473r ) to sew this loose-fitting dress. I favored McCall’s M7805 for its close-fitting lined bodice and midi length flared skirt. The button-down f
