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: Summer Fun Outfit

It’s Summer and most times you will catch me in a summer dress, but every now and again I love a Summer Fun pants outfit. This outfit is fun because I love the combination of the polka-dots with the strips in the fabric. I have started loving fabric with double borders now because it can be used in so many different ways and that’s why I chose this beautiful Barn Red/Black/Off-White 100% Cotton Double Border Geometric Print (#ULD7686r) that was perfect for this project. I used just under 4 yards of this fabric to create this outfit because I had to make sure I had the perfect pattern placement on the fabric and I also love me some wide-leg pants. This is again a mashup of 2 different patterns to create this look. I used the bodice of the Burda 6968 Top and the pants from the Simplicity 8389 pattern which I hacked by taking the pleats out of the front of the pants. Pattern placement on fabric with double borders or any borders is the key to that perfect look. I wanted to make sure my bo
