Made by a Fabricista: One More Summer Jumpsuit


I participated in the launch of the Anitra Jumpsuit by Style Sew Me Patterns and I love this jumpsuit! It has all the drama for a night out on the town and it's such a easy garment to make. My daughter Mori needed a causal-dressy outfit for a wedding and this is what happened. I opted for a solid print this time around and I say this time because this was the third use of this pattern. Eryn the owner of Style Sew Me Patterns outdid herself with this one. The instructions are super easy and she even has a sew-a-long to walk you through the construction.

                                                                     

The first time I used a gold coated knit which draped so lovely for this jumpsuit [here]. The second time around I used a  BOLD stripe ITY print [here]. The second jumpsuit was for my sister. Even though we dressed up all three of the jumpsuits with heels, you can easily put on a cute pair of sneakers, hike that purse up on your shoulders and be on your way!

Now I used this Kelly Green ITY knit that I bought a some time ago to make an off the shoulder top but that never happened. Mori had the shoes so it came in super handy for this jumpsuit and she didn't have to buy new shoes to wear with it. I put together a line of green solid fabrics that I think would make a nice jumpsuit and I threw a print in the mix as well. The choice of fabrics are endless and you can make this jumpsuit for just a few dollars!

Kelly Green      
Apple Green     
Army Green         

Check out the video above to see just how easy it is to construct. 
I did a little hacking on this version because Mori wanted thin straps instead of the t-shirt top. 
It was easy as 1-2-3 as shown  below.



 



 



   

Let the shenanigans begin.....
Uummm I don't think there's enough room in there. 

  This is her I'm every woman pose!                 
I hope you enjoyed this jumpsuit as much as I have.
I'll be coming back in October with my next post, 
in the mean time make sure you visit my blog to stay in touch.

Made by a Fabricista: Papercut Patterns Stacker Jacket

Hello sewing friends! I'm truly delighted to join the wildly talented Fabricistas to share some of my sewing projects in 2021. Sewing has been very helpful for me with the lockdown happening; each project forces me to focus on something specific and completing each garment goal is highly satisfying. My wardrobe is definitely coming out of this whole era the most impressive it's ever been!  Lately I've been eyeing some lighter jacket patterns. Living in southern California means that real winter weather never arrives, but I tend to run cold anyway and love to layer up to stave off the shivering. I settled on the Stacker Jacket from Papercut Patterns. The boxier style means I can throw it on over another shirt layer (or two!) without feeling like I'm too constrained, and I like the more cropped look since I don't need too much heavy coverage for weather that will soon be warming up around here.  This was my first time using a paper pattern from an indie designer, and
