  1. I love Kathy's dress too. I am amazed that she dyed the fabric. Looks like the dress is not the only thing she has refashioned. She looks great. Pam in Florida

    1. Thank you so much! I've actually never cut up an old garment to re-make a new one. I knew I had a massive amount of satin on my wedding dress, knew I could cut it off and treat it as a large piece of material for something different. Lately I have been in the habit of making less time consuming garments and just wanted to enjoy some of the sewing skills I use less often.

Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
