Made by a Fabricista: Are Roses Black? Well They Are For This Jumpsuit!

 [This outfit was made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]

This fabric is fabulous! When I saw this I could not put it in my cart fast enough. This black & white rose print is the star of the show! This is one fabric that needs a simple design so that it doesn't fight with the print. I knew I wanted to make a jumpsuit with this fabric and I wanted a simple sleeveless jumpsuit with a matching belt. 

I made a romper last year by hacking these patterns so this is what I used for this jumpsuit. I used the top of view C from the dress and I used the base of the shorts for my bottom. I would have just used a jumpsuit pattern in my stash but I knew I had worked out fit issues already with these patterns and all I had to do was add the pant legs to the short pattern.


I added a collar and a matching belt to give this jumpsuit a little class. Unfortunately  they disappears when it's all put together. You have to see this beauty up close and personal to really appreciate it. So here are some close-up shots of the collar and belt.


 
  
  

We took a walk to a local flower shops on Keswick Ave in Glenside PA called Penny's for our backdrop. I love this painted window and their mural on the building...and the flowers. Thanks Penny's!




  


  







  


Make sure you stop to smell the roses!
Until next time.

  4. Gorgeous girl, even more beautiful with the exquisitely fitted jumpsuit. You are a sweet momma for taking the time to carefully craft it for her. I LOVE the belt, especially. I really have all intentions of making belts, but by the time I am near the end of a project, I'm all, "meh, too tired." ;-) One day!

  7. As usual girl, you rock...The jumpsuit is beautiful and the added collar and belt add the sophistication I'm sure you were going for. The fit is on point as usual. Mori's closet must be the envy of all her friends. I hope she knows how blessed she is.

Made by a Fabricista: Fast Sews and Cool Summer Fabrics

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm sharing a few things made with my favorite summer fabrics - cotton, linen and rayon - and as an added bonus these are all super quick sews. Each of these projects took me no more than 2-3 hours to sew. My house gets too hot to sew some summer days, so projects I can whip up quickly are great for that limited amount of time that I have.  The first two items I made up as a set, but of course they can also be worn as separates. The top is the I Am Patterns Gaia tank made with a stunningly gorgeous cotton challis. Call me naive but I had no idea cotton challis was even an option! I'd only ever seen challis in rayon. This cotton though is simply a dream to work with, and if you run across it I highly suggest snagging some. The top is a simple V-neck with a facing but what makes it special are the gathers at the shoulder, made by simply adding a bit of ribbon or fabric in a tube. The combination of this pattern with this light cotton fabric is the per

Made by a Fabricista: My Fall Ensemble

Hi everyone.  I am back and so eager to show you what I sewed for the transition to fall.   Our social calendar for the next three months is filling up so it is time to sew for fall.  Where I live, fall weather can vary from 60 to 80 degrees.  Linen is my “go to” fabric, especially for September and October.  Fabric Mart happened to have on sale the mid-weight navy /light blue linen with abstract geometric print. Due to the hugely discounted price, I could sew a fall ensemble that would consist of a duster, a pair of pants, and a sheath dress for about $50.00. Vogue V1756 pattern by Sandra Betzina caught my attention. It had a standup collar, buttoned front, and set-in sleeves, but its side front pockets hide behind a flange on each side front and the lower back had a gathered skirt. How unique! The pattern instructions, written by the designer herself, were easy to follow.  I sewed the duster in Size C and made no adjustments. Because of its style, color and maxi length, it can take m

Made by a Fabricista: Luxe Knits for A Classy and Yet Cozy Fall Wardrobe

Hello Fellow Sewists!  I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista make with you all, as I have started my transition in to sewing for Fall!  Now don’t get me wrong-I am by no means wishing summer away!  Summer is my favorite time of year here in Minnesota. But Fall is my second favorite. And I have done a ton of summer sewing. So I wanted to get a jump start on building a cozy, yet classy Fall wardrobe that will suit me perfectly as I’m at home more but still need to be put together for zoom meetings and running errands.  I chose two gorgeous sweater knit fabrics to work with for these outfits. I knew I wanted a great basic black knit fabric. And then I fell in love with the floral knit fabric as soon as I saw it!  So I am excited that I got to work with both.  My original intention was to make a mix and match wardrobe but as I thought about it, I hardly ever actually mix and match things!  So instead, I decided to use one of my favorite wrap dress patterns, Butterick 5454. I have made
