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: 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
