Made by a Fabricista: High Waisted, Wide Leg Denim Pants!

Hi Fashionistas!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful 2016 so far! I just finished making my very 1st garment of 2016... and can I just tell you that I am in love with it?

I got this super yummy delicious Denim Sateen from Fabric Mart.. I got a total of 4 yards so I am hoping to get a nice skirt out of it as well :)


This fabric would make a very cute dress as well.. I have to try to get my hands on a bolt of this fabric..I think I could design an entire wardrobe out of this :) 



The fabric behaved BEAUTIFULLY! I am on vacation in California and didn't have access to all my professional tools. I used a domestic iron to press the seams while sewing and the fabric responded so well to heat and steam. I did not have a tailors clapper, but one wasn't needed.. The fabric was a pleasure to work with. 





I get so greedy when it comes to fabric. When I love a fabric, I want to make as many garments out of it as I can..  Wouldn't a dressy denim jacket be so nice with these pants?




The pants are quite high waisted. I considered lowering the wait by about half an inch but decided against it.. I stand 5 feet 4 inches.. and love a pair of pants that makes me look tall :) I used Burda 7122 for the pattern



I like my pants long. I like to show a little bit of that cute shoe while I walk or sit, but I like the pants long.. 

Yup... had to throw in that bollywood pose.. as always..


I love these pants so much more than the original pants I made in gabardine. These one stretch with me and allow me to eat a big lunch.. The fabric has a stretch.. and is super comfortable. 


That is it for now fashionistas!! See you soon  with me next sewing adventure. 

XOXO

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 "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!



Have you ever used a Burda Style pattern magazine?  I used to always subscribe the Burda Plus magazine which is for larger sizes, but they stopped making it in English and I stopped my subscription.  I missed it so much, that I took a chance and ordered it in French directly from France on burdastyle.fr.  It wasn't expensive- about $15 total including the po…
