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: Spring is for Shirtdress

I love shirt dresses! My pattern collection reflects this (I may or may not have eight shirt dress patterns) but somehow my closet does not. I have just two DIY shirt dresses (Mimi G's Katie dress and Simplicity 8546) and maybe two RTW versions. So it's high time that I added some to my wardrobe.


This polyester blouse weight twill by Milly has the perfect weight and drape for a relaxed shirt dress. If you prefer a more structured look, stick to a cotton shirting or light weight sateen. I loved this fabric and print so much that I grabbed both colorways. Unfortunately this fabric is sold out, but you can browse other shirtings and blouse weight fabrics here.


This fabric has a somewhat slinky feel, but isn't truly slippery. There's also a slight sheen without being shiny like a satin. It was easy to cut and sew, but I did get a few snags when pinning so make sure you use sharp pins and a fresh machine needle. I serged my pieces before assembling the pattern because as m…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
