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: 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
