Made by a Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Marty - Artemis

Sometimes you want to do something outside of your comfort zone. I haven't tried to do evening wear since I made my prom dress in high school. I've grown a lot as a person and a sewist since then so, I thought I'd give it another go.

I don't know when the idea to make evening dresses based on the Greek Pantheon came to me. But I do know that it's been fueled by the Princesscore aesthetic that's been Poppin up everywhere on my Instagram feed. Plus, who doesn't love a pretty dress?

This dress is for Artemis, the Goddess of the Hunt, and Moon. Going in I knew I wanted a cowl back, a sleek silhouette and the moon phases on the back. This dress turned or more elegant than I could have imagined and is a wonderful start to this series. 

I hope you all love it as much as I do.

Made by a Fabricista: Preparing for the Holidays

Hard to believe the holidays are fast approaching and in six weeks we will welcome a new year!  I am determined to celebrate in a big way!!!   I picked Vogue V1722 by Designer Nicola Finetti for its statement bodice and statement sleeves. Yes, indeed, I am loving its close-fitting bodice, plunging neckline, balloon sleeves, and flared skirt.  I dared to make this special dress in Fabric Mart’s embroidered silk dupioni, a fabric I had not sewn before. I did not prewash the silk dupioni as dry cleaning will be my method of care for the finished garment. I underlined the bodice with prewashed black cotton batiste from my stash instead of the suggested interfacing. Though not called for by the pattern, I also underlined the skirt the same way to minimize wrinkling when I wear it. I prewashed black silk charmeuse (from Fabric Mart) to use as lining. Then I lined the balloon sleeves with champagne colored organza from my stash to give it more body. For the hem band, I used French fuse as int

Past Fabricista Guest Post: Classic Basic Pieces made with Ponte Knit

Happy Friday All! I am ecstatic to be guest blogging today and sharing a few basic pieces that I made.  I truly enjoy the creative process of sewing but writing a detail blog post has been quite challenging the past few months.  Hopefully after this one, I will find more time to document my creations as it helps going back and reading how I created the look.     I have been wanting to create a few basic pieces but kept procrastinating as it is often times cheaper to buy than make.  This summer, I have been truly disappointed with the quality of the tank tops in the department stores and I skipped buying them.  I have been eyeing the ponte knit section for a while on Fabric Mart to buy more colors to add to my stash.  When I saw the beautiful range of colors that were available a month ago with various shades of nude, I knew a few yards wouldn’t hurt my pocket.  I absolutely love the quality of ponte knit that is sold at Fabric mart, especially the rayon/nylon/lycra blend . I decided t

Made By A Fabricista: Winter Poncho

Hello Everyone, Today’s post is all about my new fall/winter layering piece: a poncho with tasseled hem. The Fabric. I selected a heavy weight wool/polyester chunky knit sweater. The fabric is a plaid print with colors perfect for the winter season. It has a one way stretch and nappy textured. The Pattern. I used McCalls 8241 for this project. It is a knit poncho with wide sleeve bands and options for turtleneck, crewneck, cropped, shaped or  tassle hems. I made view C without the turtleneck detail. I modified it by skipping the sleeves, it would have been too thick trying to sewing multiple layers. The Sewing Process. This poncho sewing process was relatively easy and straightforward. I decided to omit the sleeves portion as it would have been too bulky to sew with the weight of the fabric. I made tassels using knitting yarns and attached it to the hem of the poncho. Since I had extra fabric left after cutting the poncho, I used the rest to cut a long chunky scarf. The Styling. For th
