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: ITY Dress

Hi sewing friends - Andrea here from Happy.Things.Here over on Insta with this week’s post – I’m sharing about a favorite fabric and pattern today!  So… the last two months have almost gotten the best of me. We made a somewhat unplanned decision to move homes and life has been just insanely busy and hard to find time to sew. But sewing  is such a joy and a stress reliever for me, so I fit in this fun and easy sew amidst the chaos and it made me sew very happy! Sneak peek – how could this print NOT make someone happy? First, let’s talk fabric. ITY , or Interlock Twist Yarn, is one of my all-time favorite fabrics for sewing clothing. Fabric Mart did an Instagram post with a video on this fabric and I highly recommend you check it out if this fabric is new to you. Three things I love about ITY – 1) it’s easy to care for and rarely wrinkles, 2) it’s easy to wear, great for drapey pieces, and works all year long, and 3) Fabric Mart gets great deadstock prints and colors from fashion design

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Separates in White Eyelet

To me, eyelet fabric suggests warm weather and sunshine.  I can envision myself sipping lemonade, while swaying on a porch swing with a gentle summer breeze on my face, all while wearing a lovely eyelet dress.  Hello Sewing Friends! It’s Sharon with Sharon Sews here sharing my latest Fabricista make with you.  This time I sewed some separates using a summer staple, eyelet fabric.   A quick search online revealed eyelet being used in more than just dresses this season, ranging from romantic dresses to flirty tops to wide-leg pants and matching camp shirts.  I even saw a man’s white eyelet top on a high-end shirt designer’s website.  There are so many options for using eyelet fabric, but I liked the look of eyelet pants with a matching top. Both fabrics were designer fabrics – I LOVE that section on the website! A white 100% cotton geometric floral embroidered eyelet lawn, and a baby pink/white 100% cotton embroidered pinwheel floral voile.  Both are so, so lovely!  I also took advantage

Made By A Fabricista: Breezy Summer Style with Rayon Challis from Fabric Mart.

Hey there my sewing friends!  Summer is here and I am all for it.  It has been exceptionally hot here in Southwest Florida. We have had temps in the high 90’s.  I want to keep cool and comfortable and still look pulled together this summer.  That’s why I chose rayon challis for this month’s summer make.   Rayon Challis is lightweight, flowy, soft and extremely comfortable to wear. It’s an excellent choice for summer outfits.  It has a beautiful drape making it an excellent choice for maxis, tops, dresses, and shorts. The fabric is lightweight and depending upon your sewing project you may need to use a lining with this fabric. Also use a lightweight interfacing when working with rayon challis.  If you are a beginner at sewing, you may find the fabric a bit fiddly to work with, but the end result is so worth it.  Fabric Mart has beautiful challis fabric to choose from. I chose this fun tropical print on an off-white background. This summer season vests are in.  I love the ease of wearin
