Made By A Fabricista: Summer Fun Outfit

It’s Summer and most times you will catch me in a summer dress, but every now and again I love a Summer Fun pants outfit. This outfit is fun because I love the combination of the polka-dots with the strips in the fabric. I have started loving fabric with double borders now because it can be used in so many different ways and that’s why I chose this beautiful Barn Red/Black/Off-White 100% Cotton Double Border Geometric Print (#ULD7686r) that was perfect for this project. I used just under 4 yards of this fabric to create this outfit because I had to make sure I had the perfect pattern placement on the fabric and I also love me some wide-leg pants.

This is again a mashup of 2 different patterns to create this look. I used the bodice of the Burda 6968 Top and the pants from the Simplicity 8389 pattern which I hacked by taking the pleats out of the front of the pants. Pattern placement on fabric with double borders or any borders is the key to that perfect look. I wanted to make sure my bodice had the strips at the bottom of the top and the tie portion around the neck, and also all around the hem of the pants leg. I decided the shir the middle portion of the shirt to give the bodice a nice and cute fit which takes the boxy look away from this 2-piece pants outfit.



This fabric is so perfect. It’s a light-weight shirting fabric that is perfect for a shirt, dress and a great pair of light and flowy pants for the Summer months. This fabric is a woven therefore having no stretch which also made it very easy to work with and sew up with ease. 


I absolutely love the double striped borders on both ends because I had enough of the stripes to work with and allow my bodice and hem border to go all the way around. I also love the combination colors of black, white with red. Fabric Mart still has this awesome fabric to choose from but if these colors are not your choice, they have many other double border prints to choose from. 

I’m loving everything about this fun outfit and how light the fabric is even on a very hot Summer day. I have a few Summer events I can see myself wearing this to. 

Until next time,

Made By A Fabricista: Sewing the Saguaro Set

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer.  I have been all about the bright colors and florals this season.  Never knew I liked florals as much as I do!  When I saw the Saguaro Set from Friday Pattern Company I smelled another matching set in my future.  I also knew that it would be made from a floral fabric.  Off I went on a search for floral fabric on the Fabric Mart site. Sewing the Saguaro Set The Saguaro Set Pattern is a woven top and pants set that is perfect for a lunch date with the girls or for the night out on the town.  The top features a deep V-neck with a tie option and flowy sleeves and an elastic waistband. The pants are wide leg pants with an elastic waistband and draw string. For the top, I made a size Large based on my body measurements and I thought it fit perfectly.  The pattern has an elastic guide but I didn't use it. I just put the elastic around my waist and tightened it until it was comfortable.  This top is very simple to put together and the pattern

Made By A Fabricista: Cool, Summery Cottons

Hello everybody! I set out to see what I could do with a gorgeous stack of mostly one-yard cuts, mostly cotton fabric, paired with some of my favorite tried-and-true patterns, to boost my summer wardrobe. Some days it’s too hot to think, you know? So producing some easy to grab-and-pair pieces to have at the ready will lighten the morning rush and make me feel pulled together as I usher the kiddos off to their activities. I chose some lightweight, mostly woven cotton fabrics that display big impact with their colors and prints, and also sort of (mostly?) go together. It’s not quite a capsule wardrobe, but I was inspired by that coordinating process.  I’ve sewn all of the following patterns (save for one) in the past, so I made some small changes to keep things fresh in the creative process, but these are all pretty true to their intended style..  First up, a Blank Slate Patterns Hathaway Tank with one yard of Golden Yellow/Light Salmon/Amaranth 100% Cotton Floral Print Lawn.
