Made by a Fabricista: 2 Hour Cold Shoulder & Palazzo Set


Spring is here!! Although here is Pennsylvania it’s hard to believe with all the snow and coldness outside. But we’re going to pretend or let’s just say we’re getting ready. McCall’s M7757 is going to be the it pattern, I can feel it in my bones. The pattern is so cute, it shows of the shoulders and it’s an easy make, those are all the qualities that will make it a go-to pattern this spring.


I ordered this gorgeous fabric more than two months ago and it was supposed to be for my February post on the blog. I waited until the last moment to open the package and when I did it totally wasn’t what I expected in structure and weight. I thought the fabric was more like a twill or more structured Sateen. I had plans on making a pant suit with this fabric. So, I had to put it on hold until I could figure out what to make with it.

The print is fantastic (Mori calls it a galaxy print) and I thought about making myself a pair of fancy pj’s or a maxi dress for Mori but then comes along the release of the new spring patterns from McCalls’ and I chose McCall’s M7757. 

This is an outfit can be put together in under 2 hours, giving you plenty of time to make more than one.

The Palazzo pants are super wide. Mori is 5'7 and I had to add 3 inches to the length so that she could wear heels with the pants. The original length is good for flat sandals. 

    
                


            Here are a few great options if you want to make a bold statement!         






 


I will definitely be making a few more of these for Mori, I just have to stock up on elastic!
Have a great day Peeps and as always it's been a blast to share my work with you.
Don't forget to stop by and visit me sometime!

Made By A Fabricista: Melton Wool

Guess what sewing friends, this is a great time of year to make a new traveling coat for the holidays! We're heading to celebrate in a colder climate than where we reside, so a heavier coat is a necessity. I'm already a big fan of wool in general, so a coat in wool Melton was high on my list of wants, both for warmth and sustainability. I decided to sew an Octave Coat by Love Notions. I've sewn this pattern in recent years both in a heavy fleece and in a knit coating I bought from FM years ago. The original pattern includes a shawl collar or hood option, and this enormous moto-style collar is a free add-on. I love how it's both dramatic and has a vintage flair. I appreciate the thigh-length bodice of this coat, I really need that kind of coverage. The wide overlap of the lapels also adds to the layers of warmth I crave.  Rather than a button closure or the waist tie closure option, I just added a simple heavy-duty snap. I might go back and add one more for security, but

Made By A Fabricista: An Outfit for First Snow

We had a marvellous autumn in western Canada with warm dry days and just a couple of hints of frost. When I was perusing Fabric Mart Fabric's site in October, I was tempted to focus on pretty florals for blouses or dresses but part of me knew that ... (da dah dum ... ) winter is coming . Fortunately, Fabric Mart was stocked with a huge selection of fabrics that are perfect for winter or holiday sewing. Over the past several months I've been planning my sewing projects so I have pieces that work together. To stick with that theme, I decided to pick a print fabric for a top, and a solid for pants, using navy as the neutral. Pants For the pants, I selected Navy Poly/Nylon/Spandex Stretch Corduroy. This fine 14-wale corduroy is warm enough to wear outdoors but will be especially comfortable indoors. It also has a bit of drape which makes it nice for trousers. And who doesn't want some stretch?  I selected Vogue 9181 (Custom-Fit Bootcut Pants) because it is designed for stretch

Made By A Fabricista: Velvet for the Holidays

Are you getting ready for the holidays?  I am.  From past years, it gets so busy in my household around this time of year, so it is never too early to start my holiday sewing.  This year I decided to sew velvet, a fabric I had not sewn for many years but I think it is luxurious.   As luck would have it, FM’s poly rich black velvet flashed on my computer screen and I bought lots.  I thought it would be pretty for a one-shoulder gown, which I had never worn before but admired on others.  The following week FM’s multi-colored one showed up.  It was a poly embossed Bohemian print velvet with jade, yellowish, and crimson colors; it screamed fall and family get-togethers.   I just had to have it!  When the fabrics arrived, the deep colors did not disappoint. I chose Butterick B6557 for both dresses, View B for the knee-length printed dress and View C for the maxi dress. It was perfect for velvets; the front was one whole piece and so was the back.  I cut the fabrics with the nap going down
