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!

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 "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!
