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: Summer DIY Print Mixing

Hello Gems! It's still summer and it's a hot one! I'm not a shorts and t-shirts type of gal, as you all may know by now. That is, unless the occasion calls for it of course! I'm more of a casual chic, flirty two piece, with a little bohemian vibe on top type of gal! So you can find me beating the heat in these last days of summer in this cool and comfy backless tiered flounce sundress. Oh, and let's not forget the puff sleeves!  This whole vibe sums up the summer! And nothing says it better than zebra and tribal print! I coordinated the rayon rugged Tribal print crinkle challis with this rayon zebra print challis. These two prints look absolutely amazing together. They are both very drapey fluid fabrics that fair well as summer garments. They are breathable and feel so light and cool against the skin. Challis fabrics make great flounce and it's not too light weight that you have to line it. I absolutely adore both of these prints. Zebra print is one of those pr

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: Summer Ain’t Over Yet

All of my fellow Fabricistas have been looking toward starting their fall wardrobes. But this year, I’m riding my summer vibes right until their official end in mid-September, because I’m doing something a little different: going on a beach vacation after Labor Day! Now is as good a time as any to tackle my first swimsuit, and I have to say, it was a great experience. And of course, I’d need a cover-up too. Fabric Mart had everything I needed to try my hand at a swim suit. I knew I wanted a bright, colorful patterned suit that was more likely to hide any construction flaws, so I picked this really fun nylon/lycra and it just screamed summer fun. Since I wasn’t sure which lining would work best, I ended up picking up the plain black swimsuit fabric to line with, since I read that you can line with swim fabric. It ended up being thicker than I imagined, but for me, I felt like this worked great because the recovery of the two fabrics together is excellent. The fabric is great quality. I
