Made by a Fabricista: Wild Prints

Lately I’ve become a big fan of animal prints and I feel like they should be mixed in within every wardrobe.  For this look I decided to create a set using this animal print challis.  This is a great fabric that I feel is very transitional between seasons.  It has both a nice hand and drape; it also doesn’t wrinkle as easily.   I was able to pack this for my vacation and not need to do much steaming afterwards.



I decided to make this look as we are now in August, and I felt like it would be the perfect transitional piece.  


Another great thing is that these can be worn with other pieces as well to create an entire new look.  For the pants I used the Simplicity x Mimi G #S9114. The modifications were only to slightly lengthen since I am taller than the size it was drafted.  The pattern has front pleats which works well with the fabric.  The fabric was easy and fun to sew as well.

I wanted an oversized look for the top portion.  For this I made the Friday Pattern Company Ilford Jacket.  It’s a unisex oversized jacket style that worked perfectly for the look I was trying to achieve.   It can be used as a top or a light jacket for the cooler nights.


The overall look is chic comfort.  Something that I can mix and pair with other garments, also it is super comfortable.  I feel like I am wearing lounge clothing.   Like most people being the house during the pandemic I got adjusted to wearing more comfortable lounge clothing.  This set achieves that for me while still being dressed. The neutral tones in the print are great because they can be paired with a pop of color in accessories.

For my look I paired them with my DIY cage bag and handmade leather sandals that I created.   I incorporated a few different animal prints in the way I accessorized.

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Sewing is in Full Effect

Hi Guys! Today I’m coming to you with this easy, breeze caftan from Simplicity Patterns because summer sewing is in full effect! While looking through my pattern stash, I came across McCall’s 8413. This pattern is described as McCall’s Sewing Pattern Misses’ Caftan In Two Lengths.  This is an Easy to Sew caftan in two lengths has ruched front with drawstring that ties at the bottom, V-shaped neckline, dolman sleeves and narrow hem. View C caftan has contrast on the left side. OK, let’s get into it because I have a few things to share and say about this pattern. When I first saw this pattern, I purchased it because I loved the ruching in the front. I think that ruching can hide just about any “imperfection” you might think you have. Now, I must mention that this is one of the few caftan patterns I’ve ever purchased because I’m petite and feel like I get lost in all that fabric.  Well, I didn’t even realize this was a caftan pattern until I read the pattern description while writing this

Made By A Fabricista: Youtube Edition - Marty

This month was a little different. I decided to take the opportunity to really beef up my summer wardrobe with three new dresses. And since finishing them, they have become my everyday uniform. I started playing with this pattern back in March when I tried, and failed, to make a dress the night before my cousin's wedding. (don't worry I had a backup dress) The pattern that I used for these dresses was my third iteration. And honestly, as with everything your practice, it just got better. These dresses hug every inch of my body and hide everything else. I mean, what else would you want from a dress right? I hope you enjoy the making process as much as I did and I'll see you all next time.  MARTY   |  @scrappypatterns Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!

Made By A Fabricista: Embracing the linen wrinkles!

Hello wonderful sewists! Today I have a project that I have been meaning to sew for a while, but you know how it goes. Too many ideas, throw in some analysis paralysis, so many, many gorgeous fabrics to wear, and then, bam! Eons have passed. I’m working on sewing the plans that have been in my head the longest, which brings us to this dashing summer frock.  This is the Style Arc Esther Woven Dress. The style is intended for lighter wovens and the design is ripe for color blocking with the included center front and back seams. You could make right and left sides match; go full checkerboard with opposing rear right and left front; or just use four prints and go wild! I’m sticking with the most basic of blocking and splitting the dress down the center.  Importantly, I got matching threads for each linen color for all the topstitching. Matchy matchy is the name of the game in my book. I added bonus bartacks to keep the side seam pockets forward facing.  Medium Sky Blue and Light Steel Blue
