Made by a Fabricista: A Twist of Summer Lemon

Hi guys, I am on my second make as a Fabric Mart Fabricista! This time I chose a lemon lime color linen. I live in Texas and trust me, our weather is absolutely bipolar,  YES, it is, its cold in summer and spring sometimes and it's hot sometimes in winter,  so I wasn't sure what to make until I saw a dress that took my attention. 


I saw this dress on Instagram and I was crazy about it.



I immediately decided to make the dress, and I knew I had to self draft it. The linen was pretty easy to sew and very soft. I did line it fully.

The top was pretty easy to sew, I tried my very best to mimic the picture, as for the collar, I thought I had it down, 😅 haha, but I realized mine was different after I had attached the collar to the dress, but hey I still love it, it turned out my way...lol. sometimes yours have to look a bit different than the picture you are copying.

For the skirt,  I pleated it as the style and attached a side pocket.

In all I love the dress because it's soft, my only problem was ironing the linen 🤣😂, it was a challenge but I did it, I am loving the dress.

Made by a Fabricista: Living in Linen

As the warmer weather approaches linen is probably one of my favorite fabrics that I feel often gets overlooked.   It drapes well, it’s cool and comfortable and you can make almost anything out of it. For this feature I used 4 yards of designer linen to create a vintage inspired look.  I had an image of a vintage Butterick pattern from the 60’s that I had saved on my Pinterest board.  I love the versatility and easiness of the style.  Since I did not have access to the pattern, I used similar patterns from my stash along with my own pattern drafting to replicate the style.  In the end I created 4 pieces total allowing for interchangeable looks. To create the skirt I used McCall’s pattern 7981 which is almost I identical to the on featured on the vintage pattern.  The shorts pattern was McCall’s 7962.  They are perfect to wear underneath the skirt for a layered look or by themselves. The bralette was self-drafted, I took my basic bodice sloper and moved the dart to create a center fron

Made by a Fabricista: A Fruity Spring Dress

After a year in yoga pants and sweatshirts all I want to sew are dresses. Big, over the top, wonderfully floaty dresses. I loved this fruity chiffon border print from the moment I saw it and knew it had to become one such dress. Much like florals, I absolutely adore fruit prints on fabric, so to find a fabric with both was a real treat. Chiffon is one of those fabrics a lot of sewists seem to be afraid of, and I don't blame them, it can be very tricky to work with. However, I strongly believe in doing difficult things, because the end is so worth it and you have the chance to learn new things along the way. I've only sewn with chiffon a couple times before so I decided to go with a pattern that didn't have any tricky closures and or require a lot of careful fitting. I ended up settling on Simplicity 8872, view A – a maxi length pullover dress with a tiered skirt and cap sleeves. I started with a small bust adjustment (SBA). I do this with nearly every pattern because I tend

Made by a Fabricista: All Dressed Up and Finally Somewhere To Go!

May was a month with a load of events and milestones! I'm so thrilled that I was able to get fully vaccinated and wait those final two weeks for immunity to kick in, and my relief and gratitude feel overwhelming. I toasted to a lovely Mother's Day, I celebrated my 40th birthday, and I had my first in-person gathering with my favorite girlfriends in over a year! All of these things brought me so much joy, so naturally a joyful dress was a wonderful way for me to express myself. Wearing and sewing linen were both part of my Me Made May pledge, so I'm happy to report that this dress fit the bill on both accounts. Nice!  Tiered dresses are everywhere now, and I'm finding them irresistible. They offer so much fun movement even just walking around, and they could not be more comfortable in warm weather.  I have this frequent urge to combine multiple colorways of the same fabric into one garment, and this is absolute the perfect style for me to engage in those shenanigans!
