Made by a Fabricista: Let Me Introduce You To The "Keira" DIY Jumpsuit [Nina Ramel Patterns]

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

Hello ladies and gents! It was feeling like spring here in Pennsylvania this past week. So this DIY Jumpsuit fit the bill for this month's post. Let me introduce you to the Keira Jumpsuit a new pattern by Shari from My Daily Threadz  with her indie pattern label Nina Ramel Patterns. This is my second version of the pattern and you can see my original version  made with sweatshirt fleece HERE!  This pattern does call for a knit fabric but I don't really like to follow all the rules when sewing. I knew from my first time around with the pattern I could use a woven fabric with a stretch. I hacked this version a little and used this sateen stretch that worked well. [There was a little left when I created this post but it was on sale] 

I worked out a few kinks with the first go round which mainly was an issue using the thick fleece fabric. This time I did not add the gathered waistband, I added an exposed zipper in the back and I added a wide cuff to the pant legs. 



You can also see that my neckline is showing a little more Va-Va-Va-Voom if you know what I'm talking about! But Mori's a youngin' who can wear this daring neckline, it's age appropriate for Mori but the version on the cover of the pattern is for the more mature woman.

 

 




     

   


Well that's all for this month folks!

Made By A Fabricista: Speaking My Truth

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 "

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
