Made by a Fabricista: Two Can Play Hearts

Hi family,

Eunice here, and I am on to my third make as a Fabric Mart Fabricista! This time I chose a 100% Polyester Hearts & Circles Print Blouse Weight Woven. This fabric was almost 60 inches wide & I got 5 yards. I also selected a black lining fabric. Both fabrics were beautiful and I immediately decided to make two outfits.


The first dress is a fitted dress I saw on Instagram. I decided to self draft it myself. Because of the soft buttery texture of the fabric I decided that French seams would go beautifully inside.


The lining fabric was beautiful enough to use for the ruffle at the bottom of the dress. The rectangular shape sleeve was something I had seen and wanted to emulate. I couldn't have been happier with how it came out. The dress turned out so beautiful!

 


For my second make I used a Vintage Simplicity 7383. This was a dress I had made before, it's a maxi dress with a cape, the pattern was straight forward, I didn't do any adjustment, I also used some of the lining fabric for the cape to contrast the dress.
 

If you know me you know I love maxi dress and this pattern is absolutely one of my favorites, very easy to sew and very comfortable. I also used French seams on this dress to just because of the texture of the fabric.




I love both my makes, the fabric is flowy and airy, and in this Texas heat, it's just what I needed.

Made by a Fabricista: Updating My Summer Wardrobe

Hello all!  I am back and excited to share my makes for the summer.   While looking for something to wear, given the heat and humidity, it became obvious quickly that there are two gaps in my summer wardrobe:  a sundress and a maxi dress with ruffles.  After all these years, I had neither one! From Instagram’s MeMadeMay discussions, true sundresses are lightweight sleeveless dresses that expose the shoulders, arms, possibly the back, and typically have straps. Before I retired, I was too busy to shop so any sleeveless dress was good enough.   Also, from social media, lightweight maxi dresses with tiered ruffles are on trend.  Looking back, I avoided these two styles of dresses because they reminded me of what little girls would wear. Now in my later years, I seek comfort above all else.  These dresses seemed they would keep me cool for the summer.   For the sundress, I liked the features of Vogue V1625 by designer Tracy Reese. It looked extraordinary with the cowl neck in the front, th

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Janine Sews – A Summer Twinset

I’m one of those people who is always either too hot or too cold … if I’m sitting outside, I want sleeveless but the minute I walk into a restaurant, I’m freezing! For my July Fabricista project I sewed a twinset that will take me from the hottest of days to the coldest of air conditioning.  Fabric For this project I picked a bright summery orange poly/spandex blend with a jacquard print of clusters of dots. The dots aren’t very apparent when looking at the yardage but once it was made up into the twinset the waves of dots add a lot of dimension! Pattern Pamela Leggett’s patterns always fit me so I selected Pamela’s Patterns New Versatile Twin Set and made the tank top and cardigan. As with all of Pamela’s patterns I didn’t need to make many alterations. I selected the correct size by using my high bust measurement, moved the darts to fit my shape, and I also added ¼” to the seam allowances on the sides of the tank and top to give myself a bit of ice cream space!
