For my Fall project, I decided to make a Jalie set — two patterns from their spring release but made Fall-friendly! I chose to make the Jalie Bianca (a pattern I’ve been eyeing for a while now) in Feather Wale Corduroy — I chose Eggplant, but there are tons of colours to choose from in this beautiful fabric.
What better to do while you are required to stay home than tackle a more complicated sewing project? Well, fortunately for me, I’d received this Vogue 1671 and this absolutely glorious viscose poplin as my latest Fabricville blogger project just before this lockdown started. So I had a more difficult project waiting for me!
My latest Fabricville blogger’s project is the cat’s meow! I used McCalls 7992, a Laura Ashley pattern, and added this Cat Happy Printed Cotton (SKU WR704-014) to come up with a dress that is just purr-fect.
Upon seeing this wonderful cotton lycra knit print in the Fabricville online shop, I knew I had to make something that would highlight the scribble print — as a sewing librarian, I have a real weakness for any kind of alphabet/text based print. I used this charming fabric to make my first ever Marcy Tilton pattern, Vogue 9329, which is rated “easy”.
I’ve been working away on a new Lisette pattern, Butterick 6567. I liked the potential of this pattern when I saw it, the contrast yoke offered some possibilities.
As Spring approaches I’m trying to hurry it up by making a warm weather dress, from bright red quilting cotton featuring playful mice, of course! Unfortunately making a cotton spring dress means I had to wait a week for a day suitable for outdoor pictures after finishing it.
