Made By A Fabricista: A Denim Set for Spring

Happy Friday All! I am ecstatic to share my latest make that I had on my to make list for a while.  My goal for the month of February was to sew a mini vacation capsule for a trip, but unfortunately I did not get a chance to. I was able to make 3 of the 6 pieces including this denim set. When this beautiful denim fabric arrived, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

I have been wanting to recreate a linen look I made a few years ago using the Montoya coat pattern with a few adjustments.  I created VIEW A without the peplum and lengthened it by 6 inches. Instead of sewing the tie inside the seam of the top like I did here, I wanted to make it separate so that it looks like a jumpsuit. (Read the blogpost here).

Moreover, my body has changed and I needed to cut a size larger so that I can rock it as an open vest or a top tucked in. I love the way it turned out but wish I had extended it by 8 inches instead of 6.

For the pants, I went to my tried and true simplicity 8605 pants pattern and added a center pin tuck which has been my new favorite addition to my pants. Moreover, I sewed down the elastic for the waistband and used a denim top stitching thread. I topstitched the top by adding 2 rows of top stitching thread on the armhole, neckband, and hem.


I really love how the pants came out but wish I had sized up on the hips. I am not worried as I know this summer, I plan to drop a few inches and it will be perfect fit. Overall I am happy with how the set turned out and I love the fact that it looks like a jumpsuit with the tie belt.

I have been under the weather the past  week  so I did not get a chance to share how I plan to mix and match the set like I usually do.  Be sure to stop by my page to see how I rock it with other pieces. I am officially on Spring Break and I am looking forward to some well needed rest and relaxation.

Thanks for reading and be sure to stop by my page to see how I will rock it over my break.

One Love,

  2. What a gorgeous set Marica - I am one who can’t get behind the whole jumpsuit trend, but I could so do this! The pin tuck down the front of the pants is inspiring as well, love it!

  3. I love this outfit and I think it looks fabulous on you! I also love ideas about how to bring design changes to tried-and-true patterns (that already fit!) to create something fresh (like with your pintucks in the front of your pants).

  5. Two-piece jumpsuits are so much easier to wear than one-piece, and there is also the option to wear as separates. Great job on fitting and finishing! This is a good look for both a casual outdoor day, as well as an elegant evening. Thanks for posting and inspiring your readers.

Made By A Fabricista: Luxe Viscose Rayon Wrap Dress

I've always loved long flowy dresses that skim the floor, no matter what the season is. However, particularly around the Springtime! It's been a while since I've created one but since Spring is right around the corner I'm getting the itch to add them to my wardrobe.  For this months Fabricista feature, I sharing a selection from Fabric Mart's gorgeous viscose rayon collection.  I fell in love with this beautiful viscose rayon fabric which, if you know viscose, you know it  is the perfect fabric for a flowy floor length piece. It's lightweight, yet still opaque, fluid and soft to the touch.  Also, I think viscose is just heavy enough that it's not annoyingly slippery and hard to handle as satin and silks.  Needless to say I was taken by this bold vibrant print! If you know some of my previous pieces I've made, bold and vibrant is my jam! I chose to create a rendition of my Early Spring KnowMe Pattern ME 2020. It's a wrap woven wrap dress with cargo po

Made By A Fabricista: Let’s Make a Leather Bag

Hi Guys! I’m trying something a little different today.  We are going to make a leather bag.  I was looking around the Fabric Mart website for fabric for my next project and I came across Sue’s Pick.  The fabric choice for that day was this gorgeous black leather fabric. The best part was that the leather was only $20 a piece.  When I received it at home, I couldn’t believe how soft the leather was. I was in love. First, we are going to make the pattern and then we’ll sew it up.  You are going to need a ruler, pencil, and scissors to draft the pattern. Purse Pattern Main Pattern Piece – Cut 2 1. Make a 14 x 16 rectangle.   2. At the bottom of this pattern piece, you will cut a 2 x 2 square on each side. 3. At the top of this pattern piece, measure in 1” on each side and then measure from that point down to the corner of the cut-out square at the bottom. Cut that piece off. Pocket Piece – Cut 1 4. Make a 7 x 10 square. 5. Go in ½” at the top and go down 3” on each side. Cut th
