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: Comfy Palazoo Pants - Mommy and Me

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
