Made By A Fabricista: Mommy and me skirts for Christmas!


HI Fashionistas! 

Hope you all are having a wonderful December. Mine is going by way too fast!  I've been sewing up a storm lately. Last weekend, I wrapped up my baby shower dress and this past weekend, I finished these mommy and me skirts from a double-knit fabric:

For my daughter, I made a full circle skirt, and for myself, I made a maternity pencil skirt. I am seven months now!


Hers has a straight waistband and a zip on the back. Both hers and mine are self-drafted. 


I used a black and white double knit that can be seen HERE

She has her very own custom clothier, and wardrobe department...


I styled this skirt two ways, 1st with a halter top with a bow, and next with this ruffle tee with 3/4 sleeves. Personally, I felt more "me" in the long sleeves,  since I feel its a more balanced look, and the top is longer. I do love the halter with the bow. It's very chic!


Initially, I had planned on making mommy and me pajamas for Christmas morning.  It is my annual tradition, but the fabric did not have as much of a stretch as needed, so I switched to skirts!


And here is my latest obsession. Owl earrings! I shared with you the last owl earrings I gifted myself HERE. Well here is another :)


That's all the fun I have to share with you! We put up our Christmas decorations yesterday morning and had some friends for a Christmas Party! It was so much fun. By the time you read this post, I will officially be in hibernation mode for the rest of the year!

Have a Merry Christmas! And I will see you next year!

But before I go... some final silliness from my kid

  1. beautiful Vatsla! I love both of your tops, with the ruffles and the bow. Both of you look so cute together! I would have loved to have seen the jammies. Would they have been "onesies"? Love the owl earrings too!

    Merry Christmas and hopefully when you return, you will have your new bundle of joy!

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 "

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.
