Made by a Fabricista: Mama and Me Tie Dye

Hey all!  Back again to share some Mama and me goodness.  This time with both of my kiddos!


This tie dyed fabric is a soft, lovely Rayon/Lycra Jersey.  It's unfortunately sold out, but you can find tons of similar options here!  The opacity felt sufficient for the tiny garments, but I was a little concerned it might be a bit too sheer for my own dress, so I lined in another light blue Rayon/Lycra Jersey, like this.

Made by a Fabricista: Deer & Doe + Chambray

Summer endures here in Colorado, so I went for something nice and cool for this month's post.  I'm trying out Deer & Doe's spin on the classic shirtdress in this ultra soft cotton chambray and a bonus dress for my daughter.

Deer & Doe Bleuet

When I saw this denim chambray go up on Fabric Mart, I knew almost immediately that I wanted to make it into a Deer & Doe Bleuet.  I love the classic shirtdress look of it and that tiny collar is so darn cute.  Bleuet is not in stock at the moment, but here are the other Deer & Doe options if you're like me and curious about this indie company.

Made by a Fabricista: Cool, Comfy, Slim Fit Pants

Happy Saturday All!
My summer break has officially come to an end and I am super excited to start a NEW school year.  I have been given the opportunity to teach 2 elective creative classes and yes, I plan to include sewing.  I am overjoyed about this new challenge and can't wait to share my passion for sewing with my students. Now let's get to the point!


Made By A Fabricista: Two twill suiting sheath dresses (Vogue DKNY 1809)

Hello everyone! I usually gravitate towards fit and flare silhouettes when it comes to dresses, but this time I decided to fill a blank in my wardrobe and make myself sheath dresses!
I digged into the marvelous Milly collection again and selected two twill suitings for my August makes. When I saw them 'in person', I thought they would lend themselves well to that type of dress plus, as a bonus, I think those 2 sheath dresses will transition well into the cooler season ahead!

Made by a Fabricista: Early Fall Separates

Hi all!  This time of year, I start my fall sewing.  I love the fall colors with the rich darker tones and the not so vivid florals. 


Made by a Fabricista: Lace and Flowers for a Wedding

Have you tried out any of the Milly designer fabrics yet?  I had not heard of Milly, but really liked the colors in this print and thought it would be perfect for a wedding that I am attending in Germany.  The wedding will be in a very old church, and the bride chose blue as the wedding color scheme, so I wanted something with blue in it.   When I received the fabric, I actually gasped- it is probably the prettiest fabric I've ever worked with!

The type of fabric was unfamiliar to me- it was very heavy and fully interfaced on the back.  I quickly googled Milly's creations, and found this...

Made by a Fabricista: McCall's 7969 in Crinkle Challis

Happy Summer Fabricistas!  I am so thrilled to share this dress with you, I LOVE it, I NEEDED it, I plan on wearing it A LOT!
