Skirt Challenge Inspiration: StyleArc's Taylor Knit Skirt by Sue

Is it spring yet?  Where I live, spring is such a relative term!  How many of you get snow on May 1st?  We did today and the day I had the hubby take pictures it rained all day long. Plus it was cold!  So, imagine my skirt with a short-sleeved top and sandals.  That is what I wish I was modeling for you!



I used this fabulous knit from my stash.  I know, it's hard to see the details so I will also put in a few closer shots.  It is black knit with variegated stripes running across the cross-grain. It will be awesome with some bright colored tees!  


Sewing this skirt was so fast!  It has two pieces--front and back and the waistband is attached to the top.  Here is the pattern:   


Pull-on tube skirt with angled design lines
This pattern is by StyleArc and it is the Taylor Knit Skirt.  




It is a body-con tube skirt.  Shaping is provided by very cleverly designed side darts.  



Pick a fun stripe so you can highlight the design details!   This is a photo along the front.    


I love fun pull-on skirts like this for summer. The split is just high enough when you sit down that you can feel comfortable knowing you aren't showing the world what you've got and yet it offers enough walking ease that it is comfortable.  All in all this takes about an hour to make, perfect for spring and summer!


Thanks for reading and I hope you are sewing up some fun spring/summer skirts!  Here is what I back yard looked like this morning. :(

Made by a Fabricista: Cafe au Lait Linen Dress

Hello everyone. This linen dress is the first thing that I made after my husband passed away 2 months ago.  At first, it was a real struggle- I kept putting things together the wrong way and having to rip it out and do it over again.  I probably shouldn't have chosen an asymmetrical design with fabric that looks the same on both sides for my first project!  But as I finished, I felt a real sense of accomplishment!  I have to say that creating something unique and special was just what I needed to feel a little like myself again.   I used three coordinating pieces of linen- a deep coffee colored brown, a milky cream, and an abstract print with whipped cream, cloves, and cinnamon it- thus, my cafe au lait dress!  These particular fabrics are no longer available, but there are lots of other choices in the Linen section.  Linen is so wonderful to work with.  You do need to accept that wrinkles will be part of the look though, which I am fine with.  For the pattern, I used Vogue 1694 wh…

Made by a Fabricista: Winter is coming!

When I was browsing on Fabric Mart's amazing selections, I couldn't help but drool over the gorgeous coating by Michael Kors.  I love the designer fabric choices on the website.  Also, the price point of this amazing fabric made this a no-brainer for me.  I simply had to make another winter coat.   I live in the northern plains of the US and we can have winter coat weather from October until April or May.  That means, I need to have many choices for a winter coat.  Just having one or two is boring in my book!  I have numerous coats, most of which are made from FM's selection of coating.
It appears this Michael Kors Coating color I used is all sold out, however there are some pretty choices here: Coating


You can see from the inside of the hood, I used a pretty floral for the lining.  I just love pretty lining fabrics.  This one has so many pretty colors in it and it's a floral, so it was love for me!

Here's a view of the inside.  Isn't that just pretty?  Please do…
