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: Speaking My Truth

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black . My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black . She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race ”. My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
