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

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
