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: Speaking My Truth

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 "

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
