Made by a Fabricista: Sew Red - Vogue 9075

For the first time this year, the weather consistently rose above 60 degrees.  The long awaited Spring has arrived and hasn't failed me yet (fingers crossed).


Today's dressy jumpsuit is courtesy Vogue Pattern 9075 found (HERE).   The dabric is a "hot tamale poly/twill suiting" from Fabric Mart. Once I saw the color, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!


This is one of the simplest patterns I've sewn in a while.  In under 3 hours, I had a completed garment.  Instead of lining this top, I opted to create a facing for the center front, and center back pieces, using the original pattern piece.  


Once attached, The pattern piece and the facing (both with finished edges) were pressed towards the facing, under stitched, clipped in the curve.



I repeated this step for the (2) center back pieces.


From here, all other steps should be according to the manufacturer's instruction.  I will be completely honest, this pattern is so simple, I did not read the instructions at all!  I assembled the pants, put the pockets on, sewn my pleats (which I laid flat instead of towards the center front), a double hem on the sleeves and pants, added the a zipper and that was IT!  You cannot construct a jumpsuit any simpler!.


  And there you have it!  I can't wait to wear this over the spring/summer. 






Happy Sewing!

  10. The drawing looks like the waistline sits on the waist but your dress looks like it is a dropped waist with the belt being much higher. Did you alter the bodice length to be a dropped waist? You said you just sewed the pattern right out of the envelope. Love the outfit, love the color, just confused as to the dimensions.

    1. Hi Mrsmole, I did not make any adjustments to the waist on this pattern. The waistline is exactly where the belt is. Thanks so much!

Made by a Fabricista: My Fall Ensemble

Hi everyone.  I am back and so eager to show you what I sewed for the transition to fall.   Our social calendar for the next three months is filling up so it is time to sew for fall.  Where I live, fall weather can vary from 60 to 80 degrees.  Linen is my “go to” fabric, especially for September and October.  Fabric Mart happened to have on sale the mid-weight navy /light blue linen with abstract geometric print. Due to the hugely discounted price, I could sew a fall ensemble that would consist of a duster, a pair of pants, and a sheath dress for about $50.00. Vogue V1756 pattern by Sandra Betzina caught my attention. It had a standup collar, buttoned front, and set-in sleeves, but its side front pockets hide behind a flange on each side front and the lower back had a gathered skirt. How unique! The pattern instructions, written by the designer herself, were easy to follow.  I sewed the duster in Size C and made no adjustments. Because of its style, color and maxi length, it can take m

Made by a Fabricista: Luxe Knits for A Classy and Yet Cozy Fall Wardrobe

Hello Fellow Sewists!  I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista make with you all, as I have started my transition in to sewing for Fall!  Now don’t get me wrong-I am by no means wishing summer away!  Summer is my favorite time of year here in Minnesota. But Fall is my second favorite. And I have done a ton of summer sewing. So I wanted to get a jump start on building a cozy, yet classy Fall wardrobe that will suit me perfectly as I’m at home more but still need to be put together for zoom meetings and running errands.  I chose two gorgeous sweater knit fabrics to work with for these outfits. I knew I wanted a great basic black knit fabric. And then I fell in love with the floral knit fabric as soon as I saw it!  So I am excited that I got to work with both.  My original intention was to make a mix and match wardrobe but as I thought about it, I hardly ever actually mix and match things!  So instead, I decided to use one of my favorite wrap dress patterns, Butterick 5454. I have made

Made by a Fabricista: The Perfect Statement Fabric

I’m 100% one of those people that select fabric solely based how I’m feeling in that moment.  I never have a project in mind or a look I want to make.  Once the fabric arrives and I get to touch it, within a few days the ideas start to come.  The only downside to this is a fabric stash that looks a bit like a retail store. When this double-faced satin suiting arrived, I initially considered a pant suit but thought this fabric was a little too special and at the last minute opted for something more dramatic despite having no place to where it.  I figured If nothing else, I can wear the skirt with a t-shirt for school drop-off lol. The top was made using a drafted bustier pattern with lots of boning and interfacing.  Definitely time consuming but well worth it.  I enjoy a nice dramatic sleeve and interfacing gave the sleeve enough structure to accomplish just that. The skirt was made using vintage McCalls 9260.  I have drawers and drawers filled with vintage patterns.  The beauty of vint
