Fabric Mart/Pattern Review Partnership: Vertical Stripe Knit for the Ina Maxi Skirt

Spring is just around the corner and the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe is a maxi skirt. There are a lot of different maxi dress and skirt patterns out there and PatternReview.com has added a unique and fun skirt pattern to the list. 


The Ina Maxi Skirt has a slight A-line design with two bias godets for a flattering silhouette. This pattern is easy to sew and flattering for all body types. It may even take you less than 2 hours from cutting to finishing! 

This pattern comes in size XS-4XL and looks great on various body types. There are over 30 reviews of this pattern that can be found HERE

This pattern especially looks great with a vertical stripe knit, which we have supplied for Pattern Review. You can't imagine how hard it is to find vertical stripe knits and finding a good one to boot! I searched for months trying to find the perfect vertical stripe and we found four great prints. They are available in limited quantities only through Pattern Review! They come in a 2 yard cut (yes that is enough for the skirt in ALL sizes!) Deepika has a cutting layout on her blog

Here is what's available:

Navy/Coral Vertical Stripe ITY Knit - $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) This stripe knit has a great nautical look to it with the combination of navy and coral. The simple stripes cascade gracefully to the center and the vertical stripe makes you look long and lean!



Multi-Stripe Circle ITY Knit - $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) This is not just a stripe knit, but it also has crazy circles that play with your eyes! Great color combination and could be paired with a lot of different solid shirt options. 



Chevron Vertical Stripe ITY Knit - This has been a crowd favorite. I love that isn't your average chevron design. Variegated chevron design with interesting designs. $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) 



Teal/Purple/Black Vertical Stripe Knit (Nylon/Lycra) - $23.98 for non-PR members ($21.58 for Friends of PR members) This vertical stripe knit is a little different from the rest of the knits because it is made from nylon/lycra. This knit is beefier than an ITY knit. Drapes nicely and comes with such pretty coloring.



Doesn't Deepika look great in her Ina maxi skirt? Thanks to Deepika for approaching us with the idea to supplier vertical stripe knits for this project. Watch for other Fabric Mart/Pattern Review collaborations in the future. You never know what we have brewing! :O)



And if you're not into stripes, there are many knits to choose from on our website.

Made By A Fabricista: Completing My Handmade Cruise Capsule

I was lucky to go on a weekend cruise to the Bahamas with my husband! For the occasion, and for this April post, I initially planned on doing two versions of the Wanda Wrap Dress: a colorful sleeveless one for daytime excursions and a darker mid-sleeved one for nighttime outings. Thankfully, I did the black one first and realized I preferred to sew something else with the other fabric. Why? Indeed, the dress is very comfortable to wear. It is flowy, elegant and a good option for day or night, depending on the chosen fabric. But, with its six panels full skirt, its faux-wrap top, and its extended waistband, this dress took almost two yards of fabric to make, even in a small size! With this jersey knit elastic fabric, it ended up being bulky and heavy to pack. Knowing I am used to traveling with very minimal luggage (backpack forever!), bulkiness and weight do not work for me. I will wear this in Miami, but it won’t travel much with me in the future.  Also, making the Wanda Dress wasn’t

Made By A Fabricista: Spring Ahead

Happy Spring!  We have finally made it into my favorite season which happens to also be my birthday season.  I feel like the New Year really starts in the spring season as everything comes back alive, and we all feel refreshed. So, for this post I created two separate looks to encompass my spring vibes. This first look I dared myself to create a look using two different prints.  I don’t work with prints often, but I had been really inspired lately by fellow Fabricista Marcia (keechiibstyle) who just has a magical way with mixing her prints. For this I used two different print jersey knits of 2yds each and McCall’s Pattern M8238 which allows for easy color blocking but in this case print mixing.  The fabric requirements call for a 2 way stretch but this knit worked just fine for the pattern. I love the contrast between the two prints.  This is the perfect spring style but can also but transitioned into summer as well. I did view C which had a high slit in the center.  Initially I planne

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Brunch looks just in time for Mother’s Day

Happy First Friday of May! I am truly excited that I have 22 more work days left before the summer break.  This school year has been a roller coaster ride and I have enjoyed some high moments and dealt with some low ones in between.  I wanted to start my summer looks early and decided to focus on looks I can wear when I visit Jamaica or other tropical places. These looks made are both great for Sunday brunch as well. This set is my first faux romper for this year and I love the fact that I can rock it as separates. When I came across this yellow graphite gray polyester fabric , I knew it was perfect for summer.  To top it off, I found the perfect matching earring from Purple Paradise Studio in lime (Rise stud in lime) and knew I wanted a chic summer faux romper set.  I decided to hack  McCalls 7943 dress pattern and create another top.  I have made it several times as I truly love it and plan to use this pattern as one of the beginner patterns for my summer sewing class. I have made it
