Made by a Fabricista: Mad for Olive

Happy Fall Everyone!   Where I live, we typically have a beautiful fall, except for this year.  It's pretty much been non-existent but that hasn't stopped me from making some fall tops in trendy colors.  


For this months post, I knew I wanted to use Olive green and I knew I wanted a cosy knit.  I found this lovely fabric in the ITY knit section.  Isn't that color so pretty?  
Here's the link to the fabric: Olive ITY knit


Yes, I am back to indoor photos.  It was just above 30 degrees today and the wind was howling.



I make a lot of flat pattern measurements before I start.  With this pattern, I knew it would be snug across the back shoulder area, so I widened that area for a total of an inch.  This is a typical adjustment for me when I use StyleArc patterns.  

I spend a lot of time on my necklines and hemlines.  I used this notion from FM's site: SewkeysE-White-Fusible-Knit-Stay-Tape-Interfacing.  It's sold in various widths and for necklines I use 1/2" tap…

Made by a Fabricista: Cozy Loungewear

It's November and time to get cozy inside!  We had our first snow on Halloween in about 30 years, which I'm taking as a warning that this could be an extra cold winter.  I'm ready though, with the help of some new homemade loungewear using Fabric Mart's velour.  These fabrics are all from the group that said it was from a "Better Spa Wear Manufacturer".   There were hundreds of yards of the pale jade velour, so maybe you got some of it.  The white terry velour that I used on the robe is still available.  These fabrics were really nice quality, so I have high hopes that Fabric Mart will get in more from this company!


This heather gray velour tunic was made using McCall's 7979.  I made the cowl neck version, and added a kangaroo pocket to the front.    This is a super easy pattern and I was a little worried that the velour might be too thick for it, but it turned out fine.


You can see in this photo that it's got dropped sleeves with extra low armholes.…
