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: ITY Dress

Hi sewing friends - Andrea here from Happy.Things.Here over on Insta with this week’s post – I’m sharing about a favorite fabric and pattern today!  So… the last two months have almost gotten the best of me. We made a somewhat unplanned decision to move homes and life has been just insanely busy and hard to find time to sew. But sewing  is such a joy and a stress reliever for me, so I fit in this fun and easy sew amidst the chaos and it made me sew very happy! Sneak peek – how could this print NOT make someone happy? First, let’s talk fabric. ITY , or Interlock Twist Yarn, is one of my all-time favorite fabrics for sewing clothing. Fabric Mart did an Instagram post with a video on this fabric and I highly recommend you check it out if this fabric is new to you. Three things I love about ITY – 1) it’s easy to care for and rarely wrinkles, 2) it’s easy to wear, great for drapey pieces, and works all year long, and 3) Fabric Mart gets great deadstock prints and colors from fashion design

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Separates in White Eyelet

To me, eyelet fabric suggests warm weather and sunshine.  I can envision myself sipping lemonade, while swaying on a porch swing with a gentle summer breeze on my face, all while wearing a lovely eyelet dress.  Hello Sewing Friends! It’s Sharon with Sharon Sews here sharing my latest Fabricista make with you.  This time I sewed some separates using a summer staple, eyelet fabric.   A quick search online revealed eyelet being used in more than just dresses this season, ranging from romantic dresses to flirty tops to wide-leg pants and matching camp shirts.  I even saw a man’s white eyelet top on a high-end shirt designer’s website.  There are so many options for using eyelet fabric, but I liked the look of eyelet pants with a matching top. Both fabrics were designer fabrics – I LOVE that section on the website! A white 100% cotton geometric floral embroidered eyelet lawn, and a baby pink/white 100% cotton embroidered pinwheel floral voile.  Both are so, so lovely!  I also took advantage

Made By A Fabricista: Breezy Summer Style with Rayon Challis from Fabric Mart.

Hey there my sewing friends!  Summer is here and I am all for it.  It has been exceptionally hot here in Southwest Florida. We have had temps in the high 90’s.  I want to keep cool and comfortable and still look pulled together this summer.  That’s why I chose rayon challis for this month’s summer make.   Rayon Challis is lightweight, flowy, soft and extremely comfortable to wear. It’s an excellent choice for summer outfits.  It has a beautiful drape making it an excellent choice for maxis, tops, dresses, and shorts. The fabric is lightweight and depending upon your sewing project you may need to use a lining with this fabric. Also use a lightweight interfacing when working with rayon challis.  If you are a beginner at sewing, you may find the fabric a bit fiddly to work with, but the end result is so worth it.  Fabric Mart has beautiful challis fabric to choose from. I chose this fun tropical print on an off-white background. This summer season vests are in.  I love the ease of wearin
