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

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).
