New Sewing Pattern from Sewaholic Patterns! The Belcarra Blouse

Sewaholic Patterns does it again...creates another fabulous design! And we're so lucky to have this pattern in stock! This semi-fitted, pullover blouse creates the illusion of a loose fitting blouse, with shaping in all the right places. 


We have this pattern in stock! Click here to buy it now!

The pattern calls for lightweight woven fabrics to be used. We have a nice selection of wovens in both natural and synthetic fibers. Here are some of my favorite picks: 


This gorgeous Clematis Blue China Silk would be perfect in this blouse, especially in view B, which has pleats along the shoulder line.



Light pink and blush fabrics are trendy this season. This Dusty Pink Poly Crepe de Chine would make a lovely blouse!



This Orchid Stripe Silk/ Cotton Voile is the NOW color! (2014 Pantone Color of the Year!) Lovely color with a delicate stripe. 



This Abstract Swirls Silk Chiffon, a designer fabric, would be fun to play with print placement. 

This is just a sampling of the fabrics that are great for this blouse. Browse through the website and pick your favorite fabric. If you purchase something from the website, don't forget to purchase the pattern!

  1. Ooh, that looks like a nice comfy shirt to pair with a pencil skirt, love it! I just picked up some of that pink crepe de chine when it was on sale for Sue's picks and it has a really nice heathered look to it, very pretty! But I have to say, I am a sucker for all of your J. Crew voiles, and I'm thinking this one would make a nice blouse! http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Olive-Off-White-Scattered-Polka-Dot-Silk-Cotton-Voile-J.Crew-53W.html

  2. I like the clematis blue and the blush suggestions above, and the designer abstract swirl silk chiffon is divine.
    I also like this gray dot print fabric found here:

    This is a great pattern, I would love to sew this in so many colors.

  6. I have had my eyes on the Challis for a while now and Juniper Sprigs Rayon Challis - J. Crew - 50W
    SKU: CSB3360 would be my choice!

  7. My bold choice would be http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Bright-Aqua-Silk-Satin-Georgette.html but my more lifestyle realistic choice is http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Olive-Cream-Mini-Leopard-Silk-Cotton-Voile-J.-Crew-52W.html

  8. I would use http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/Key-Lime-Lilac-Abstract-Swirls-Silk-Chiffon-44W.html. Besides it being my favorite colors, purple and green it's in a fabric I've never sewn with before and a challenge! I'm sure it would feel heavenly on.

Made by a Fabricista: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
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

Hello Fabric Mart friends!

So nice to say hey again!  Just want to take this opportunity to wish my awesome, sweet and amazing firstborn a Happy 5th Birthday this week.  It's hard to believe he's already FIVE!

Like many folks I've been spending a lot of time at home this Summer, which has translated into lots of sewing.  I've often had a thoughts about sewing for the upcoming season to get maximum wear out of garments, but often seem to be playing catch up for the current season.  But not this time:  here are my first transitional pieces for Autumn, entirely inspired by the wonderful sweater knits I kept spying at Fabric Mart.


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…
