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!

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

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
