Made By A Fabricista: Trail Blazing with Simplicity 1421


Hey Peeps! I'm back with another Simplicity 1421 Blazer! I love this pattern and you better believe if I have to make a blazer this would be my first choice and if I have to sew a skirt my go-to pattern is Skirt Simplicity 1559.  I put this  bold graphic print with stripes because you know I like to mix it up!  

I loved this blazer fabric so much that I purchased three different colors. Every time Fabric Mart posted it online, I grabbed it up quick. The first print I used to make the maxi wrap skirt below. I haven't used the third version of this print yet.

 

 
This print is no longer available but no worries, there are always other options. That's the one thing that I love about Fabric Mart, they are always getting in new merchandise and I can usually count on them getting in big bold prints.They do have  two prints in stock that caught my eye and would make awesome blazers!

      






 

 Here are some  of my other Simplicity 1421 Blazers

Well until next time Peeps!

  6. Your jacket is beautiful and I love how you put your outfit together. It looks amazing on you. Thanks for all the inspiration. I love Fabric Mart; it's the ONLY place I purchase fabric from online! I love the prints you chose, are those "suiting" fabrics or cottons? I don't have enough experience to know which fabrics work best for jackets or blazers without "touching" them!
    Thanks

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…
