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.

  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:

Made by a Fabricista: Living in Linen

As the warmer weather approaches linen is probably one of my favorite fabrics that I feel often gets overlooked.   It drapes well, it’s cool and comfortable and you can make almost anything out of it. For this feature I used 4 yards of designer linen to create a vintage inspired look.  I had an image of a vintage Butterick pattern from the 60’s that I had saved on my Pinterest board.  I love the versatility and easiness of the style.  Since I did not have access to the pattern, I used similar patterns from my stash along with my own pattern drafting to replicate the style.  In the end I created 4 pieces total allowing for interchangeable looks. To create the skirt I used McCall’s pattern 7981 which is almost I identical to the on featured on the vintage pattern.  The shorts pattern was McCall’s 7962.  They are perfect to wear underneath the skirt for a layered look or by themselves. The bralette was self-drafted, I took my basic bodice sloper and moved the dart to create a center fron

Made by a Fabricista: A Fruity Spring Dress

After a year in yoga pants and sweatshirts all I want to sew are dresses. Big, over the top, wonderfully floaty dresses. I loved this fruity chiffon border print from the moment I saw it and knew it had to become one such dress. Much like florals, I absolutely adore fruit prints on fabric, so to find a fabric with both was a real treat. Chiffon is one of those fabrics a lot of sewists seem to be afraid of, and I don't blame them, it can be very tricky to work with. However, I strongly believe in doing difficult things, because the end is so worth it and you have the chance to learn new things along the way. I've only sewn with chiffon a couple times before so I decided to go with a pattern that didn't have any tricky closures and or require a lot of careful fitting. I ended up settling on Simplicity 8872, view A – a maxi length pullover dress with a tiered skirt and cap sleeves. I started with a small bust adjustment (SBA). I do this with nearly every pattern because I tend

Made by a Fabricista: All Dressed Up and Finally Somewhere To Go!

May was a month with a load of events and milestones! I'm so thrilled that I was able to get fully vaccinated and wait those final two weeks for immunity to kick in, and my relief and gratitude feel overwhelming. I toasted to a lovely Mother's Day, I celebrated my 40th birthday, and I had my first in-person gathering with my favorite girlfriends in over a year! All of these things brought me so much joy, so naturally a joyful dress was a wonderful way for me to express myself. Wearing and sewing linen were both part of my Me Made May pledge, so I'm happy to report that this dress fit the bill on both accounts. Nice!  Tiered dresses are everywhere now, and I'm finding them irresistible. They offer so much fun movement even just walking around, and they could not be more comfortable in warm weather.  I have this frequent urge to combine multiple colorways of the same fabric into one garment, and this is absolute the perfect style for me to engage in those shenanigans!
