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: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order:


This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first.
I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern.


The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.   I started…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
