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

Made By A Fabricista: Silky Prints for a Tropical Vacation

Hello again!   I want to share with you my latest project using silky prints. My family had been planning to go to the Virgin Islands for a vacation. For this trip I wanted loose-fitting outfits. When the summer Vogue patterns were released, I fell in love with the vintage Vogue V1886 caftan. It is ankle length and the sleeves fell elegantly to the hemline, hitting the arm slightly above the elbows. It has a scooped back, which would make it comfortable in hot weather. There are side panels, but no seams. I could wear this relaxing under an umbrella during the day or for an evening stroll to enjoy the breeze on the beach. FM’s polyester lightweight charmeuse silky prints caught my eye. Even though I swore I would never again sew slippery fabrics, the coastal mountain print on the fabric (SKU UQA7666r) was hard to resist.  The moonstone blue/berry pink/medium blue/taupe were cool relaxing colors. While looking at the first fabric, I saw another silky print (SKU UQA7667r) that was ha

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Hannah - Full Bust Adjustment

When I first started sewing I quickly realized the size I was cutting out in shirts and dresses wasn’t fitting my shoulders.  Why you may ask? I was only measuring according to my bust measurement which made my tops too big in the shoulders. After some research and asking in Facebook groups I learned I needed to do a Full Bust Adjustment on all of my patterns.  I watched tons of videos and read books on how to do a FBA and I found one way that continues to be my favorite way to this fit adjustment.  The pivot and slide method has become my go to for every FBA I do.  In this video I walk you through the steps to help you get the right fit for your bust area. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions, I am here to help you on your sewing/fitting journey!  HANNAH    |  @modistra.sews Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!

Made By A Fabricista: Twirling in Liberty of London!

Hi Fabric Mart Fans! One of my very favorite things about Fabric Mart is being able to snap up some totally amazing deals - and this month I definitely scored one of those! When I noticed a shipment of Liberty of London Tana Lawn had been added to the site AND was on sale, I KNEW it had to become my next project! This is such a beautiful fabric to sew and wear - it's lightweight, has a crisp hand, is tightly woven, and feels sooo nice! I decided to get 2.5 yards to create a beautiful sleeveless dress with double circle skirt for my eldest! I used the  Peony Patterns Freesia  - the twirl is fantastic, the dress is fairly straightforward to sew, and the print on the fabric makes it so feminine and pretty! One of the easiest ways to finish a circle skirt is with a bias binding facing. I created my own bias strips with some lime green gingham cotton shirting, and used the same fabric to create the optional waistband tie. Fans of Liberty of London know that you never throw away yo
