Made by a Fabricista: December Denim

Hi Guys! I've been so obsessed with denim this season that I couldn’t help but feature this denim two piece look created from Fabric Mart denim collection as my December Fabricista Feature. Denim is one of those year round fabrics that provide versatility, comfort and style. It never goes out of season and just about everything looks good in denim!

This particular fabric is a heavier denim that holds structure and shape very well. With this fabric I drafted and used my newest pattern that will be releasing soon the Alba Skirt pattern and the Ava Cropped Jacket!  

Seeing as this denim is great for structure and shape I thought it would pair great with the pleated detail these two patterns feature. Although these two patterns can be created in a medium to lighter weighted woven denim or twill fabric, I love the structure that the heavier weight pulls off. 

I used Mettler threads denim doc with this heavier weight denim because it is strong and sturdy. Its also great to use heavier denim needles with these type of projects since the fabric is so thick. This fabric sews up quite well and I loved the way these pieces came out. The best part is these denim pieces are totally versatile and can be worn separately on their own. And even more so as Denim separates in my opinion.

The Ava jacket features an over sized foldover collar, two oversized pockets, button front, lantern sleeve with pleated details at the arm and pleats at the back. It’s a copped jacket with an oversized look. Very on trend and would look great as a jacket or button up top.

The Alba skirt is a high waisted skirt with pleated skirt hem. It has a zipper fly, side seam pockets, darts at the front and back waist and best of all the front wrap detail on the right side. The wrap has a button option or a decorative zipper option. If you prefer rocking this style without the wrap feature and prefer something more classic the wrap feature can be left off!

I love my versatility, in fabric, design and styling! This denim two piece is giving me all those things. Can't wait to remix and wear these pieces in my wardrobe! I will be dropping The Alba and Ava patterns by Jan 1rst If you want to make this set!  Its a great time to get into denim if you haven't already.

Until Next Time!❤️

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
