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: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order:


This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first.
I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern.


The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.   I started…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
