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: Date Night looks for Valentine's Day

Happy New Year! I am excited to be back blogging in 2023 with Fabric Mart.  Over the past few weeks, I spent quite some time reflecting on what truly brings me joy and a personalized form of self-care. Sewing was on the top of the list and I truly enjoy making my own clothing.  During the winter break, I wanted to create some basic looks that I can jazz up for a wedding or rock on date night.  When I read Johanna’s  blogpost and came across the Vogue 1835 pattern that she made last month, I saw endless possibilities with the pattern.  I knew it was perfect to hack to make a mini, midi or maxi dress and a staple pattern to have. My original plan with the lycra foil printed knit ( here ) fabric was to make a formal infinity wrap dress that I saw on instagram.  I will be attending a formal event later this month and felt it was perfect. Knowing that I would only wear the infinity wrap dress once or twice per year, I decided to make separates that I can dress up or down and maximize the w

Made By A Fabricista: Sewing Toward Spring

Hello, all! I find it positively lovely to be back on the Fabric Mart blog in 2023 sharing more sewing projects.  This round I wanted to create an outfit to ease me back into spring. As I shiver and type this, imagining nicer weather is a very uplifting thought! But for now I’m stuck with chilly (and gusty!) weather that makes taking photographs more of a challenge. When I began working on this project, I was still swirling with holiday sewing, and while I usually have my sewing projects planned down to the T in advance, this time I was much more up in the air and just had the most cursory of ideas, so I kind of put together a little kit for myself to work with. If nothing else, seeing a beautiful little stack of fabrics and notions is very motivating.  Have you been in a constant swooning state over all the incredible Liberty of London wovens that have swept through the New Arrivals? I've, for one, have felt practically breathless poring through the huge assortment and adding a f

Made by a Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Marty - Let's Make Some Activewear!

Do you ever see a fabric, and it reminds you of a fabric in your stash, so you just have to combine the two and like... annoy the world? Now I'm not saying that these colors are horrible together, but I definitely feel like a high visibility vest while wearing them. The neon orange and hot pink are just that striking of a combination. And I still can't get over the pocket detail I did on the color-blocked pair. Along with everyone else I set a New Years goal to be more healthy. To improve my relationship with food, my body, and the world around me. And these leggings bring me so much joy. Not, go run a marathon in July joy. But maybe some Yoga and outdoor adventures in August kind of joy. From beginning to end, figuring out these legging patterns has been a lot of fun. Before this, it had been almost a decade since I had worked this seriously with knit, and I think I need to do more, to be honest. I apologize for the awkward photos. I just finished a cross-country move and am s
