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: Coming Up Roses

 From vision to reality. As we are headed into April, I can feel the spring breeze on the horizon and with that means fun time outside, be it eating brunch with friends on a terrace or going to the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to add some bright fun color into my spring wardrobe that I really haven't used and over a year.  I had been eyeing this beautiful red stripe shirting with blue roses fabric for a while not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it but knew that I was super drawn to it.   Once I picked it up, I decided to sketch out my ideas and went through my pattern stash to see what I could come up with. For this project I used a vintage pattern See & Sew 5549.  It’s actually for a long sleep shirt that I then made some alterations to.  I lengthened the sleeves by an inch and extended the side slits up to the waistline because I knew that I would mostly be wearing this shirt open.  Also since I planned to wear it mostly open I only did

Made by a Fabricista: Use Those Views! Sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank

Spring is here! Honestly, I'm still bundled up in sweatshirts most of the time, but the afternoons are getting glorious and warm and just a t-shirt will suffice for a couple of hours in the warmth on some days so I know the overwhelming heat is not far off. I love planning and organizing in all facets of my life, and spring garments for my wardrobe are on my mind. Naturally tanks are at the forefront of my strategizing for comfort in hot weather and I wanted to branch out with a little something new.  Anyone else have patterns that they've been eyeing for ages but haven't pulled the trigger? Who knows why I've kept putting off sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank . I've long admired the simple lines and I'm absolutely sure it would fit into my overall style. I've even tried drafting something similar myself with varying degrees of success, but never quite on the nose. A simple tank can go with just about everything from jeans to skirts to a high-waisted a

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Style Essentials

Is there anything more versatile for your Spring wardrobe than a T-Shirt Dress and a classic button-up blouse? In this Fabric Mart Fabricista blog, I'm going to show you how these two little wardrobe staples can be rotated through your spring me-made wardrobe for 5 different and fun looks!  I was browsing the Fabric Mart website when this lovely 100% Cotton Parchment/Black Striped Jersey Knit Fabric popped up. I’ve been itching to make a T-Shirt dress with the Rebecca Page T-Shirt Dress pattern ever since the pattern launched back in February. As I continued to browse the Fabric Mart website, I was struck by the most lovely Blossom Pink Silk Shantung Shirting that I knew would be perfect for a Grainline Studios Archer Button-Up ! As the wheels started turning, I realized that the cotton jersey paired with the silk shantung shirting fabric would be a match made in heaven for my me-made wardrobe. So naturally, I had to get both fabrics plus the Archer Button-Up pattern! I was not d
