Made by a Fabricista: Nova Jumpsuit

Hey there and happy fall! How's everyone's fall going? Mine?  Crazy! Our family has had a few changes over the past six months, as I know everyone else has too! One large change for us was a move!!! We had a family friend move in with us in March, and were lacking a bedroom for this friend. She stayed in our dining room, with a curtain for a door and we immediately went on the hunt for a house with another bedroom. Well, apparently everyone else thought it was a great time to move too! Our house hunt took a few months, but we are in our new to us house and we're surrounded with boxes, and chaos, but everyone has a room!


Our new house is a 100 year old spanish bungalow and I am in love with it! It needs renovating and updating, but it is in great condition and is just so cute and full of character!


I pulled out my sewing machine last week and was thrilled that I could find where all of my sewing things were packed. I sewed the Nova Jumpsuit pattern by True Bias and it is the perfect outfit that I know I'll wear a lot as I'm working to make this new house our home!


The Nova Jumpsuit is a knit jumpsuit that has four views. I sewed view D, which is the most relaxed view, and is so incredibly comfortable. I used jersey knit fabric from Fabric Mart. This fabric is no longer in stock, but it is a cotton lycra blend and was exactly what I was looking for. It has enough structure for this jumpsuit, and enough stretch. 


I also used fusible knit interfacing (also from Fabric Mart). Have you used this stuff before? It's great...and perfect for so many sewing projects. 


 Have you done any sewing this fall yet? Any crazy life changes? I hope you are all doing well!

Thank you Fabric Mart for this great fabric!

  1. Lovely jumpsuit! It's great both with a blouse underneath and with a jacket over - or simply without on a great day! :)

Made by a Fabricista: Coming Up Roses

 From vision to reality. As we are headed into April, I can feel the spring breeze on the horizon and with that means fun time outside, be it eating brunch with friends on a terrace or going to the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to add some bright fun color into my spring wardrobe that I really haven't used and over a year.  I had been eyeing this beautiful red stripe shirting with blue roses fabric for a while not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it but knew that I was super drawn to it.   Once I picked it up, I decided to sketch out my ideas and went through my pattern stash to see what I could come up with. For this project I used a vintage pattern See & Sew 5549.  It’s actually for a long sleep shirt that I then made some alterations to.  I lengthened the sleeves by an inch and extended the side slits up to the waistline because I knew that I would mostly be wearing this shirt open.  Also since I planned to wear it mostly open I only did

Made by a Fabricista: Use Those Views! Sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank

Spring is here! Honestly, I'm still bundled up in sweatshirts most of the time, but the afternoons are getting glorious and warm and just a t-shirt will suffice for a couple of hours in the warmth on some days so I know the overwhelming heat is not far off. I love planning and organizing in all facets of my life, and spring garments for my wardrobe are on my mind. Naturally tanks are at the forefront of my strategizing for comfort in hot weather and I wanted to branch out with a little something new.  Anyone else have patterns that they've been eyeing for ages but haven't pulled the trigger? Who knows why I've kept putting off sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank . I've long admired the simple lines and I'm absolutely sure it would fit into my overall style. I've even tried drafting something similar myself with varying degrees of success, but never quite on the nose. A simple tank can go with just about everything from jeans to skirts to a high-waisted a

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Style Essentials

Is there anything more versatile for your Spring wardrobe than a T-Shirt Dress and a classic button-up blouse? In this Fabric Mart Fabricista blog, I'm going to show you how these two little wardrobe staples can be rotated through your spring me-made wardrobe for 5 different and fun looks!  I was browsing the Fabric Mart website when this lovely 100% Cotton Parchment/Black Striped Jersey Knit Fabric popped up. I’ve been itching to make a T-Shirt dress with the Rebecca Page T-Shirt Dress pattern ever since the pattern launched back in February. As I continued to browse the Fabric Mart website, I was struck by the most lovely Blossom Pink Silk Shantung Shirting that I knew would be perfect for a Grainline Studios Archer Button-Up ! As the wheels started turning, I realized that the cotton jersey paired with the silk shantung shirting fabric would be a match made in heaven for my me-made wardrobe. So naturally, I had to get both fabrics plus the Archer Button-Up pattern! I was not d
