Made by a Fabricista: Blue Ivy Floral Paradise

Hi friends, I am super ecstatic to be a Fabric Mart Fabricista, if you know me, you know I love everything floral, so when it came time to choose my fabric I chose this beautiful Floral Print Stretch Twill Suiting. Now this fabric is so luxurious and had the perfect drape and a little stretch for comfort.

For what to make I knew I wanted to make a pant suit and so chose Simplicity 8749 and I made view A and C. 

The making of this suit went really well except I didn't make the welt pocket, for some reason I can never get the welt pocket to turn out right, and so I made a flat pocket and placed it where the welt was supposed to be placed. 

This is actually my second time making this suiting, the first time,  I cut a size 16, but the lockdown has gotten the best of my body, I found myself cutting the size 18.

The fabric sews very well and putting the blazer together was pretty quick. I lined it with a Dark Cerulean Pongee Lining.

The pants, this time although I love the fit, but the legs could be a little tapered, it felt loose on the leg, my worst nightmare has always been sewing the front fly on pants, this time I sew beautifully,  I am usually sewing it and undoing it, and it usually takes me at least two trials, this time it was a breeze. They do say "Practice makes perfect ".

Thinking about it now I think I will add about 5 3 more inches to the pants next time as the pants was a little short for me.

  2. That pants length is very in style right now and I like how they are fitted. I also have a big hip waist size difference and have trouble fitting clothes properly. I am very impressed

Made By A Fabricista: Peach Skin Penny Dress

Have you ever lost your sewjo, or just taken a long break from sewing after a really hard project? After spending months altering a wedding dress, I just needed a bit of a break from sewing. Alterations are not my cup of tea, so I treated myself to a well-deserved few weeks off. After my sewing hiatus, I was ready to jump back in with a new sewing pattern I hadn't made before. The Sew Over It Penny Dress has been on my "have to make" list for a long time so it seemed like the perfect pattern to help me ease back into my usual sewing routine.  After browsing the Fabric Mart website for the perfect fabric for my Penny Dress, I noticed this beautiful black, shadow blue, and off-white floral peach skin fabric. If you haven't worked with or worn peach skin fabric, you need to get some right away! It is the softest, most delightful fabric ever! It's lightweight and has a beautiful drape, but isn't see-thru! In addition to my peach skin fabric, I also ordered some el

Made By A Fabricista: Shirt dresses are for Summer!

Hey boo!  I hope you are having a great spring/summer.  It was really hot here in Ohio this past week and finally cooled down!  The heat wave is returning though so I had to take advantage of this beautiful weather while it lasts.  I’ve been focused on summer attire and if you don’t know already whose patterns stay at the top of the list for me is, then I will tell you.  The one and only, Mimi G.  I love her style and her patterns always have a great fit!  She always comes out with something new and unique and her summer patterns are just that!   March of this year, I went from working at home as a contractor for L Brands to now an Executive Assistant for a school organization.  That’s all I will say. I don’t need anyone popping up at my job! Lol.  I went from being at home for two years wearing whatever I wanted (usually sweats and or my nightgown) and my hair in a messy bun, to working full-time again in an office.  My office is business professional, so I wanted to make some things

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Vacation Looks

Happy First Friday of the month! It’s officially 3 weeks since I have been off for summer break and I am enjoying every single minute. Even though I am working part time this summer, I still have a bit more time to sew. I was a bit uninspired right after the break but got a burst of sewing energy last week and decided to sew a few pieces. I have been wanting to create a jumpsuit since early Spring and finally decided on a pattern. I have had McCalls 7755 (now M8069) in my stash for quite a while but hated the neckline with the casing. I had an epiphany and decided to use the same neckline method for the top I made in my last post here . The bodice part of the jumpsuit is exactly the same cut and I knew it would work. I should have removed about an inch more from the top but definitely plan to make the adjustments next time around. Additionally I should have gathered it just like the dress but opted to gather the front at 8 inches instead of 7 inches and 4 inches on each side in the bac
