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: Fast Sews and Cool Summer Fabrics

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm sharing a few things made with my favorite summer fabrics - cotton, linen and rayon - and as an added bonus these are all super quick sews. Each of these projects took me no more than 2-3 hours to sew. My house gets too hot to sew some summer days, so projects I can whip up quickly are great for that limited amount of time that I have.  The first two items I made up as a set, but of course they can also be worn as separates. The top is the I Am Patterns Gaia tank made with a stunningly gorgeous cotton challis. Call me naive but I had no idea cotton challis was even an option! I'd only ever seen challis in rayon. This cotton though is simply a dream to work with, and if you run across it I highly suggest snagging some. The top is a simple V-neck with a facing but what makes it special are the gathers at the shoulder, made by simply adding a bit of ribbon or fabric in a tube. The combination of this pattern with this light cotton fabric is the per

Made by a Fabricista: My Fall Ensemble

Hi everyone.  I am back and so eager to show you what I sewed for the transition to fall.   Our social calendar for the next three months is filling up so it is time to sew for fall.  Where I live, fall weather can vary from 60 to 80 degrees.  Linen is my “go to” fabric, especially for September and October.  Fabric Mart happened to have on sale the mid-weight navy /light blue linen with abstract geometric print. Due to the hugely discounted price, I could sew a fall ensemble that would consist of a duster, a pair of pants, and a sheath dress for about $50.00. Vogue V1756 pattern by Sandra Betzina caught my attention. It had a standup collar, buttoned front, and set-in sleeves, but its side front pockets hide behind a flange on each side front and the lower back had a gathered skirt. How unique! The pattern instructions, written by the designer herself, were easy to follow.  I sewed the duster in Size C and made no adjustments. Because of its style, color and maxi length, it can take m

Made by a Fabricista: Luxe Knits for A Classy and Yet Cozy Fall Wardrobe

Hello Fellow Sewists!  I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista make with you all, as I have started my transition in to sewing for Fall!  Now don’t get me wrong-I am by no means wishing summer away!  Summer is my favorite time of year here in Minnesota. But Fall is my second favorite. And I have done a ton of summer sewing. So I wanted to get a jump start on building a cozy, yet classy Fall wardrobe that will suit me perfectly as I’m at home more but still need to be put together for zoom meetings and running errands.  I chose two gorgeous sweater knit fabrics to work with for these outfits. I knew I wanted a great basic black knit fabric. And then I fell in love with the floral knit fabric as soon as I saw it!  So I am excited that I got to work with both.  My original intention was to make a mix and match wardrobe but as I thought about it, I hardly ever actually mix and match things!  So instead, I decided to use one of my favorite wrap dress patterns, Butterick 5454. I have made
