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: Summer Brunch looks just in time for Mother’s Day

Happy First Friday of May! I am truly excited that I have 22 more work days left before the summer break.  This school year has been a roller coaster ride and I have enjoyed some high moments and dealt with some low ones in between.  I wanted to start my summer looks early and decided to focus on looks I can wear when I visit Jamaica or other tropical places. These looks made are both great for Sunday brunch as well. This set is my first faux romper for this year and I love the fact that I can rock it as separates. When I came across this yellow graphite gray polyester fabric , I knew it was perfect for summer.  To top it off, I found the perfect matching earring from Purple Paradise Studio in lime (Rise stud in lime) and knew I wanted a chic summer faux romper set.  I decided to hack  McCalls 7943 dress pattern and create another top.  I have made it several times as I truly love it and plan to use this pattern as one of the beginner patterns for my summer sewing class. I have made it

Made By A Fabricista: The Summer Blues

People often speak of the “Winter Blues”, but today I bring you the “ Summer Blues ”, and it is all good news. Most people don’t think of blue as a summer color but personally for me any color is Summer ready depending on the style and fabric. The moment I seen this Polyester Lycra Diagonal Plaid Stripe Print DTY Knit (SYB8432) I knew I wanted to make something fun for the hot weather to come. I love the Navy/Black/Powder White mix of colors and prints all in one designed fabric. This DTY Knit is made up of 96% Polyester and 4% Lycra with a 4 Way Stretch. It has just the right amount of stretch but yet not too much to make it difficult to work with. If you used a pattern not calling for stretch fabric you definitely want to make adjustments when choosing your size.   With the different patterns in this fabric and made cutting it a breeze because I actually misjudged the amount of fabric, I needed but was able to cut the bodice in one direction and the skirt in another. That’s what I

Made by a Fabricista: Youtube Edition | Dee & Dory

YouTuber's Dee & Dory are back on the Fabric Mart blog today with their most recent Fabricista Makes. Make sure to click play on the video below to hear all about their fabric choices & how their projects turned out! Dee: For my spring dress I chose a 100% Cotton Poplin Shirting , with a soft smooth finish, being tightly woven.  I loved the fabric and did not use my original dress pattern as the poplin did not drape or flow as I had hoped. For me the fabric is just a bit crisp for the pattern I had originally chosen and, I feel, even for the pattern I made. The color palette is a beautiful green background with black dots and black and white flora branches.The fabric being a 100% cotton handled with ease and sewing on it was a breeze.      I used Simplicity 9138. This dress has 3 views, with the various views being a change with the sleeve view.  I choose the three quarter sleeve view with elastic insert,  the neckline is finished with a bias binding made out of the fabric.
