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: Ready For A Cruise

Happy new year! This year my husband and I are looking forward to a late spring river cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  Since I started last year sewing my outfits for the various excursions on land, the only garment pieces left to sew were those I will wear on the ship. I wanted these to be interchangeable, so I picked gray as my base color.  I wanted very comfortable garments for ease of movement around the ship. Luckily Fabric Mart was running a huge knit sale and pattern sales were going on in many stores and online. For lounge wear, the heathered medium gray polyester/lycra double brushed knit (SKU: DLD3889d) was perfect for a jacket and a pair of pants. I used McCall’s M7294 pattern for the loose-fitting unlined jacket and Butterick B6137 for the semi-fitting pants with elasticized waistband, pockets, and leg bands. For me, attaching the leg bands gave a better finish than hemming.  For the top, the golden yellow/off-white polyester/rayon/lycra tie-dye French ter

Made By A Fabricista: Sweater Obsession

It’s been a while since I have sewn with a sweater knit, and now I think I seriously have a Sweater Obsession going on. This Michigan weather absolutely calls for a cozy sweater but why not look comfy and cute all at the same time.   I’m completely in love with this Thick Rib Sweater Knit fabric in the color Heathered Cream . I love a beautiful cream color in the winter months and to combine it with a sweater knit, makes it perfect. If you are like me and tend to get hot quickly, this fabric is for you. While it is labeled as a thick sweater knit, it is not very thick at all, making it easy to wear under coats and jackets all while still being perfect for anyone looking to make a sweater with this fabric. This fabric is so soft and while it is not a thicker sweater knit in my opinion, it still seems to hold it stretch pretty well.  I chose to use my own self-drafted dress pattern and jazz it up a bit by adding a cute Bolero/Shrug . I have had the Butterick 5797 in my possession for

Made By A Fabricista: Tropical Vibes

Happy first Friday of a brand New Year! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy going into 2022.  Whew, 2021 was a roller coaster year but it allowed us to truly appreciate every single moment. I am excited to return as a blogger with Fabric Mart and will definitely be sharing more beginner sewing tips and tricks. When I was packing for my trip to Jamaica in November last year, I noticed I had nothing to bring that had a tropical print. I knew for my next make, I would select fabric that reflected my love for warm, tropical weather and Jamaica my island home. When I searched and came across these rayon challis prints , I knew right away it would be palazzo pants or a faux jumpsuit  to rock on my next getaway - Spring break. I absolutely love the lola tank and dress pattern I made here and yes I decided to make a few more over the holiday break using some ponte knit I had in my stash from Fabric Mart. Our temperature here in South Florida has been in the mid to high 70s for most of
