Inspiration: Winter Fashion Trends 2012

Tis' the season to look dashing, fa la la la la, la la la la !
Don we now our highest fashion, fa la la la la, la la la la. 

I scoured the pages of Vogue to find the winter fashion trends and selected my 10 favorites for seasonal gatherings. These trends are easy to look great in and if you are like me, you would rather make these statement pieces rather than just buy them online!
(So I listed some fabric suggestions from our site, check them out!)

Oversized Handbag
(But I also love the velvet leggings with the men's jacket!
Make them with the velour on our website)
Winter Florals and Power Purple
(Check out this Purple Satin on our website: CWG4541)

Cobalt Blue
(We have a great rayon knit in this color, perfect for a comfortable and casual cocktail dress! 
Check out BBC5670
Black Leather
Pants in Colors and Patterns
(We have a perfect color match to the burgundy pants! Take a look at MKE5747 or try CVE4791)

I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…

Made by a Fabricista: Autumn Transitional Dress and Cardis

First up is the cardigan:  Helen's Closet Blackwood Cardigan


This is the third Blackwood I've made, but the first of the shorter iteration (view B).  It makes me want to sew up a 3/4 sleeve cropped version!


The fabric is a delightfully mottled abstract blot poly/lycra sweater knit.  Unfortunately, it's sold out at the site now but you…
