Made By A Fabricista: Floral Pants for Winter

Hi Fashionistas!

I hope you are enjoying the holidays. Last month I made a pencil skirt with this floral fabric. I had enough leftover fabric to sew up another pair of pants. I re-used my favorite pants pattern, Burda 7122.  This pattern is out of print but can be found online.





I have sewn with this pattern before twice. Once with a gabardine fabric and once with a denim sateen. I actually could not find the pattern for the pants so I copied the pattern from the last pair of pants I made. 

Here are some close-up shots of the pants:


The pattern calls for a back zipper, but I changed that to a side zip. 


I must have lost a few pounds since I made these pants because they definitely seem longer than when I hemmed them!

You can see the last two versions of these pants HERE



I am hoping to find the original pattern, and once I do, I will trace it out on tag and hang it up. I love this pattern and plan to sew with it again!

Here is the side and back view. I paired this with a black DIY top I made a few months ago!



I wore this tonight to my daughter's Christmas play and we also did our Christmas pictures tonight. 
I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and I will see you in the new year!

This fabric is a cotton sateen with a small amount of stretch.  This denim fabric would also be a great choice for these style of pants!

Merry Christmas!!!

XOXO

Made by a Fabricista: Updating My Summer Wardrobe

Hello all!  I am back and excited to share my makes for the summer.   While looking for something to wear, given the heat and humidity, it became obvious quickly that there are two gaps in my summer wardrobe:  a sundress and a maxi dress with ruffles.  After all these years, I had neither one! From Instagram’s MeMadeMay discussions, true sundresses are lightweight sleeveless dresses that expose the shoulders, arms, possibly the back, and typically have straps. Before I retired, I was too busy to shop so any sleeveless dress was good enough.   Also, from social media, lightweight maxi dresses with tiered ruffles are on trend.  Looking back, I avoided these two styles of dresses because they reminded me of what little girls would wear. Now in my later years, I seek comfort above all else.  These dresses seemed they would keep me cool for the summer.   For the sundress, I liked the features of Vogue V1625 by designer Tracy Reese. It looked extraordinary with the cowl neck in the front, th

Made By A Fabricista: The Perfect Suit

One piece of clothing I have always had an issue buying is a bathing suit. The top never fits the bottom, the torso is always too short and the straps never hit in just the right spot. So when I find the perfect fitting bathing suit, it’s as if I hit the lottery. When I went on vacation last month, I found a great fitting suit from Amazon. The suit fit great but the fabric was a different story. All I kept thinking was “this suit would be in my top 2 if the fabric was better”. So then enters this perfect nylon/lycra hibiscus print I snagged from Fabric Mart online. It provides the perfect amount of stretch and comfort making it the best option for swimwear. I duplicated the pattern and fit and made it just a bit better with the fabric. Chandler’s suit was drafted. NIKKI   |  @ beautejadore Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!
