Made by a Fabricista: Designer Quality Linen Outfit

Have you noticed the beautiful linen fabrics on Fabric Mart's site? You can see them here: Designer Quality Linen. So many colors! I chose this beautiful royal blue and royal it is!  

 


These aren't your average linens.  They have some nice drape and the colors are so vibrant!  

                                                                     
Since this season seems to be all about the sleeve and athleisure style pants, I made one of each style. Here are the patterns I used: 

Twist sleeve tunic top with fashionable hemline
The top is the Sadie Tunic by StyleArc.  


The pants are Jalie Patterns, Vanessa Flud Pants. Both are really awesome patterns but honestly, this is a lot of blue! I probably won't wear them together.  


They are both very comfortable and will make great separates for spring and summer. I love these elastic waistbands--so comfortable! 

  

I wanted to show you a detail of the sleeve. Isn't that fun?  


These linens are dry clean only but do state you can wash but to test it first.  I tested it and I liked the result of the washed linen and that is how I pre-treat all my fabric.  


Thanks for reading!

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
