Made By A Fabricista: Just in Time for Fall

Fall is one my favorite times of the year. The weather is just a little bit chilly. There is all sorts of activities, like haunted houses, pumpkin patches, & sunflower fields! I enjoy everything about fall.  Many sunflower fields don’t open up until closer to August ending in Indiana, but I happened to find one open & it was everything I wanted it to be! Today, I’m sharing my first & favorite pair of Burnside bibs/overalls, which I think are amazing for any weather, but I love them for fall!

For the fabric, I used a beautiful yellow challis, which made the pants very breathable & flowy, however, for this pattern I would not recommend using challis unless you have experience sewing. When cutting challis sometimes it is very easy for the fabric to slip & alter the actual piece. The fabric was so beautiful & the floral pattern went in a different decoration than normal, so I cut it a little bit differently but it all worked out perfectly! 

The sewing pattern I used was the Burnside Bibs by Sew House Seven. The pattern instructions were very easy to follow & if there were any instructions that you couldn’t quite understand there are a few Youtube tutorials that go step by step, which is extremely helpful for beginners, or anyone wanting to follow along. The pattern offers two different versions, but I think they’re both so cute! I made the second version, which ties in the back & is the longest length available. 

I had a tiny bit of extra fabric at the end, so I decided I would make a matching knotted headband. I bought a plain headband & I completely covered it with the extra fabric, underneath I overlapped it so only one raw edge would show. It won’t matter right now, because you still have to put the “knot” overlay on. I cut 20 inches long & 6 inches wide, I tied a knot in the way & style that I wanted & then folded the fabric to hide the raw edges. I hot glued this close to the headband. On the end I folded the fabric in on the ends so that no raw edges were showing again & glued it shut.

Made By A Fabricista: Two Luxury Linen Dresses to Transition from Summer to Fall

Hello Sewing Friends! I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista projects with you all, as these dresses were so nice to sew up. And they are just perfect for this time of year as summer transitions in to Fall here in the Midwest.   I chose 2 gorgeous linen fabrics to work with this month. I have to say, these are two of the loveliest linen fabrics I have ever worked with in my decades of sewing. These 100% Italian Linen fabrics are so unique and just an amazing quality.    The pattern I chose was one that I picked up during a Fabric Mart Fabrics pattern sale. I don’t sew a lot with Indie patterns and so when I saw the sale, I took advantage and stocked up so I could try out a few brands. This Wildwood Wrap Dress from Sew House Seven pattern company has been on my to-sew list for months and I knew these linen fabrics would be perfect for the design.  I started out with this gorgeous solid linen as my wearable muslin. Since it was a new to me pattern company, I knew I needed to test t

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.
