Made by a Fabricista: Pink, pink, pink!

Hello all!  I hope this finds you safe and healthy!
For this month's post, I wanted to use this unbelievably gorgeous chambray linen in this equally gorgeous pink. 

Here's a link to the fabric I used: 




Pink not your favorite color?  that's okay!  FM has so many pretty choices you can see here: Chambray Linen 

I thought his fabric was perfect for summer and once I opened the package, I knew I was right!  This is lightweight, breathable, and so very pretty.  You almost feel like you can float away in this!



With anything that has natural fibers, I will wash and dry, even though this fabric is gentle/hand wash.  My hubby helps with the laundry and if I would forget to put something in the special laundering pile, he'd feel terrible it shrunk and I don't want to risk it.  After making my fabric into a garment, I do my best to follow the manufacturers directions. 


If you are interested, here is a link to the pattern I used: Faith top/tunic



This chambray linen behaved like a champ.  There are pin-tucks down the front that were easy to sew precisely and that ruffle down the front...I simply used the rolled hem option on my serger. Easy-peasy.



Just a closer view! 

This was a fun sew using a great fabric! 

Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh, I love this on you, Sue! I need to figure out how to use the rolled hem option on my serger- your ruffles look great.

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black.
My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black. She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!
