Made by a Fabricista: Youtube Edition | Dee & Dory

YouTuber's Dee & Dory are back on the Fabric Mart blog today with their most recent Fabricista Makes. Make sure to click play on the video below to hear all about their fabric choices & how their projects turned out!


Dee

The fabric is a Double Brushed Polyester/Lycra Floral Knit with a soft hand, flowing fabric.  Wearing so comfortable, you would think you are wearing active wear!  


I decided to go easy with the patterns, using simple basic ones.  The look comes from melding  3 elements from these patterns to complete the look.  


McCalls 8061 view C for the skirt.  A simple 3 pieces, front,back and a waist ban that encases elastic!  Then Simplicity 1073 view A for the basic top.  Raglan sleeves (my favorite) and a jewel neckband.  Easy peasy!

I wanted to have some warmth for my neck and added versatility so I opted for an infinity scarf from New Look 6632!

I now have 3 pieces to wear as a coordinated outfit or wear each piece with other items in my closet! In my book a great make indeed! And as comfortable as you could ever want 😃!

I loved the softness I saw in the Pastel Blue Rayon/Lycra Floral Branches Print Jersey Knit.  So I deduced to make a top using Vogue 9330.  It turned out great.  There’s some nice detail in the sleeves in that there is darts on both the front and back sleeve.  I knew I wanted to make another pair of leggings and found the pale pastel blue polyester/lycra 4 way stretch knit and was hoping it would match.  It did! I used New Look 6529 to make the leggings.  I have to say out of all the leggings I have ever made this fabric was the best!  I highly recommend it for anyone looking to make leggings, super comfortable and it keeps it’s shape very well.  They both washed up beautifully too! Both the Vogue and the New Look patterns are very easy.

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. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions, I am here to help you on your sewing/fitting journey!  HANNAH    |  @modistra.sews Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!

Made By A Fabricista: Twirling in Liberty of London!

Hi Fabric Mart Fans! One of my very favorite things about Fabric Mart is being able to snap up some totally amazing deals - and this month I definitely scored one of those! When I noticed a shipment of Liberty of London Tana Lawn had been added to the site AND was on sale, I KNEW it had to become my next project! This is such a beautiful fabric to sew and wear - it's lightweight, has a crisp hand, is tightly woven, and feels sooo nice! I decided to get 2.5 yards to create a beautiful sleeveless dress with double circle skirt for my eldest! I used the  Peony Patterns Freesia  - the twirl is fantastic, the dress is fairly straightforward to sew, and the print on the fabric makes it so feminine and pretty! One of the easiest ways to finish a circle skirt is with a bias binding facing. I created my own bias strips with some lime green gingham cotton shirting, and used the same fabric to create the optional waistband tie. Fans of Liberty of London know that you never throw away yo
