A Look at a New-To-Us Designer...

We are loving some of the fabrics from a new-to-us designer, Maiyet. 

Maiyet is a luxury brand based in New York City. Their fabrics are sourced throughout the world and they partner with global artisans to create handmade pieces. A majority of their garments are made in the heart of the NY garment district. They also partner with NEST, a not-for-profit organization which trains and develops artisan businesses.

Acquiring fabric from a brand such as this is hard to come by. When we get fabric from designers, I love going on the hunt for the garment that was made from the fabric. When you buy out a designer lot of fabric, you may get current fabrics and you may get fabrics from seasons past. Either way, the fabrics are lovely! 

Here are some of my favorites:









Great coordinate for the Boucle fabric. Use it as a lining, a shell, dress or slip.

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…
