  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.

Made by a Fabricista: A Versatile Cotton 2 Piece Set!

Happy Saturday LOVES! I am finally feeling less overwhelmed and adjusting to this distance teaching.  I am back in full swing for the new 2020-2021 academic school year and even though we encountered challenges the first week, I am happy to have survived the first 3 weeks.  As we plan to transition to brick and mortar (in person) in a few weeks, I am praying that our students and teachers remain safe. 2020 year has allowed  me to learn, reflect, grow and overcome many fears and challenges and be open to change. This month’s make had me in deep reflection about my sewing journey and how much I have grown over the past 3 years.  I am no longer scared of taking risks, speaking my truth and being my authentic self.  If you have been reading my blog posts for a while, I am pretty sure you have seen the growth as well.  Fabricmart has allowed me each month to remain consistent in my journey and next month I celebrate my 3 year blog anniversary with Fabricmart.   Now let’s get into this set!  I…
