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.

  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.

  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: Bold Beautiful Crepe Spring Look

Hello Gems! I'm so excited it’s finally Spring time! I've been inspired by color lately. It could be the beautiful flowers in bloom or the bright sunny days we’ve been having! Whatever it is, it has illuminated my creative senses and I’ve been feeling so inspired. So I just have to share with you my most recent make as a Fabricista with Fabric Mart using this bold red-orange and purple Crepe de Chine.  The fabric is a very fluid and drapey crepe fabric.  I’ve also noticed wide leg pants hitting the scene for Spring and I thought this crepe would make a great pair of wide leg pants. It’s a medium weight, opaque and falls so nicely against the skin.  The print is a leopard print with a pin stripe detail. In this red-orange and purple color combo this is a very bold and playful print but can still make for a sophisticated look so I wanted to give you a little bit of both of those aspects in the actual look. I'm not much for a jumpsuit but I love the fact that this two piece al

Made by a Fabricista: The Perfect Vacation Dress

You ever make one of those dresses you can’t wait to wear? Well this is the one. I’m prepping for an upcoming very overdue vacation and I wanted to make clothes that were cute, comfortable and functional.  This dress hit every mark for me and it’s all thanks to this stretch satin twill !   There aren’t enough words to describe this fabric and how much I love it.  When shopping for fabric online you have to look at composition and hope it’s true to form.  I have yet to be disappointed! This fabric has a bit of stretch which wasn’t needed for this dress but just made it even more comfortable.  It sews beautifully and moves with a bounce that’s perfect for this style. I made this dress using Vogue V1558 with lots of pattern alterations.   -Removed the seam from the front bodice by folding the bodice front pattern under 1.5” where the seam should be.  -Faced the neck back -Changed the style of the pleats -Added a back zipper -Added 10.5” to the width of the sleeve and remove 7” from the le

Made by a Fabricista: My first Summer dress for 2021, Axis Dress

Happy Friday, everyone! I am super excited to share about my Axis Dress by Papercut Patterns today. This dress was love at first sight! For me, longer skirt lengths of dresses and skirts are challenging since I am petite (5’ 1”), but this dress was so pretty that I had to make it. Now, let's talk about the fabric. I have been eyeing this Chambray Linen fabric for a while. Just seeing from a picture of it on their website, I knew that it is a high-quality fabric! I think they do a great job showcasing their fabric by putting multiple views. I think that is one of the reasons why I keep clicking “Add to cart” almost every time I go to their website, lol.  I debated between the grape and this orchid pink , but I am very happy that I chose orchid pink. Pink is one of my favorite colors, and I love that this fabric has white in it. I think it gives depth to the fabric.  There are many colors available. You can find them from here . I may have to get different colors while they are sti
