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!

  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: Comfy Palazoo Pants - Mommy and Me

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
