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: Two Luxury Linen Dresses to Transition from Summer to Fall

Hello Sewing Friends! I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista projects with you all, as these dresses were so nice to sew up. And they are just perfect for this time of year as summer transitions in to Fall here in the Midwest.   I chose 2 gorgeous linen fabrics to work with this month. I have to say, these are two of the loveliest linen fabrics I have ever worked with in my decades of sewing. These 100% Italian Linen fabrics are so unique and just an amazing quality.    The pattern I chose was one that I picked up during a Fabric Mart Fabrics pattern sale. I don’t sew a lot with Indie patterns and so when I saw the sale, I took advantage and stocked up so I could try out a few brands. This Wildwood Wrap Dress from Sew House Seven pattern company has been on my to-sew list for months and I knew these linen fabrics would be perfect for the design.  I started out with this gorgeous solid linen as my wearable muslin. Since it was a new to me pattern company, I knew I needed to test t

Made By A Fabricista: Silky Prints for a Tropical Vacation

Hello again!   I want to share with you my latest project using silky prints. My family had been planning to go to the Virgin Islands for a vacation. For this trip I wanted loose-fitting outfits. When the summer Vogue patterns were released, I fell in love with the vintage Vogue V1886 caftan. It is ankle length and the sleeves fell elegantly to the hemline, hitting the arm slightly above the elbows. It has a scooped back, which would make it comfortable in hot weather. There are side panels, but no seams. I could wear this relaxing under an umbrella during the day or for an evening stroll to enjoy the breeze on the beach. FM’s polyester lightweight charmeuse silky prints caught my eye. Even though I swore I would never again sew slippery fabrics, the coastal mountain print on the fabric (SKU UQA7666r) was hard to resist.  The moonstone blue/berry pink/medium blue/taupe were cool relaxing colors. While looking at the first fabric, I saw another silky print (SKU UQA7667r) that was ha

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Hannah - Full Bust Adjustment

When I first started sewing I quickly realized the size I was cutting out in shirts and dresses wasn’t fitting my shoulders.  Why you may ask? I was only measuring according to my bust measurement which made my tops too big in the shoulders. After some research and asking in Facebook groups I learned I needed to do a Full Bust Adjustment on all of my patterns.  I watched tons of videos and read books on how to do a FBA and I found one way that continues to be my favorite way to this fit adjustment.  The pivot and slide method has become my go to for every FBA I do.  In this video I walk you through the steps to help you get the right fit for your bust area.
