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!

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
