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.

Made by a Fabricista: For the Love of Flowy Dresses!

Hello Gems! I am so excited to share with you my first look as a Fabric Mart Fabricista! This season I have been so inspired by floor length dresses and flowy frocks so when I ran across this beautiful Pink Purple & Green Double Georgette, I knew it would make the perfect midi dress. (You can find the fabric  HERE  if it's still available!) First let me just start by saying, when I received this fabric I was elated. The colors are even more spectacular in person than online. This is a double georgette fabric so it is sheer but not transparent. It's lightweight and very drapey! With enough volume from gathers or ruffles, you could create a gorgeous frock possibly without any lining. If you are looking to create something a little more fitted I would definitely suggest going with a lining. However, this fabric is great for the Spring and Fall seasons and even with a little layering you can get away with wearing it in the winter, especially if your Winters aren’t too cold.  Fo

Made by a Fabricista: Papercut Patterns Stacker Jacket

Hello sewing friends! I'm truly delighted to join the wildly talented Fabricistas to share some of my sewing projects in 2021. Sewing has been very helpful for me with the lockdown happening; each project forces me to focus on something specific and completing each garment goal is highly satisfying. My wardrobe is definitely coming out of this whole era the most impressive it's ever been!  Lately I've been eyeing some lighter jacket patterns. Living in southern California means that real winter weather never arrives, but I tend to run cold anyway and love to layer up to stave off the shivering. I settled on the Stacker Jacket from Papercut Patterns. The boxier style means I can throw it on over another shirt layer (or two!) without feeling like I'm too constrained, and I like the more cropped look since I don't need too much heavy coverage for weather that will soon be warming up around here.  This was my first time using a paper pattern from an indie designer, and
