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: Comfort Dressing with Style

As 2021 draws to a close,  I don’t think it comes as a surprise that comfort dressing is here to stay, at least for a while. Now the definition of comfort dressing is different for all of us, and for me it means knits. However, I don’t always want to be in yoga pants and tees. That’s why I chose to sew a knit skirt and top using Vogue 1820. This two-piece ensemble gives me the comfort of yoga pants but in a more stylish way. The beauty of this design is that you can mix-and-match prints and/or solids, creating a one-of-a-kind look. Fabric Mart Fabrics has a multitude of knits to choose from at any given time which made it easy to choose coordinating fabrics. I knew I wanted to use prints in a monochromatic color scheme.  To find the five fabrics needed, I started by browsing the knit section on Fabric Mart’s website.  I knew I wanted black as my base color. As I found fabrics I thought would coordinate, I put them in my shopping cart.  That way I could look at the shopping cart and eas

Made By A Fabricista: Ready For A Cruise

Happy new year! This year my husband and I are looking forward to a late spring river cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  Since I started last year sewing my outfits for the various excursions on land, the only garment pieces left to sew were those I will wear on the ship. I wanted these to be interchangeable, so I picked gray as my base color.  I wanted very comfortable garments for ease of movement around the ship. Luckily Fabric Mart was running a huge knit sale and pattern sales were going on in many stores and online. For lounge wear, the heathered medium gray polyester/lycra double brushed knit (SKU: DLD3889d) was perfect for a jacket and a pair of pants. I used McCall’s M7294 pattern for the loose-fitting unlined jacket and Butterick B6137 for the semi-fitting pants with elasticized waistband, pockets, and leg bands. For me, attaching the leg bands gave a better finish than hemming.  For the top, the golden yellow/off-white polyester/rayon/lycra tie-dye French ter

Made By A Fabricista: A Year of Reflection

I can’t believe we have made it to the end of another year.  Since this post is coming out right around the holidays, I wanted to create something with a bit more glam. I found this velvet sequin knit and I will say it is even more gorgeous in person.  For my look I decided to make the Mimi G x Simplicity S9370 but I decided to turn it into a gown! To do this I measured from my waist to floor to add the additional length that I needed and added additional to the back to make it have a small train.  I spread the hem of the skirt to create more of a trumpet style silhouette which made the perfect gown. This fabric was actually very easy to work with, since it is a velvet, it does have nap, so I had to make sure that I cut in the correct direction.  I also noted that I should have pre-washed this fabric before using because the fabric dye did rub off a lot as I was working on it. Once I tried my dress on to check the fit I was in love! It was so comfortable and fit perfectly.  The waist
