Shacket for fall

There’s a story here. At the beginning of every new season blog post I am pretty sure I begin with saying the same thing. I start with the fabric. It seems to me that sewists are in two camps, those who love fabric and think “What can I make with this?” and those who are taken with a pattern and go shopping to get what they need to make it. Me. I’m a fabric person. Because I have sewn all of my own clothes for 50 years, incredible by completely true, I also have frequent attacks of fabric nostalgia when a classic fabric shows up again. I feel that way about pinwale corduroy, fabric fro ..read more

Cozy Dressing with Jalie

Sewing is my passion!  I love to sew garments, but only use patterns that suit “my style”.  With fall just around the corner, my sewing thoughts moved to sewing cozy. I had 2 patterns in mind, both by Jalie.  Here’s how it ended up: Cozy Dressing with Jalie Karine is a raglan cardigan that can be left open or fastened at the front with buttons or snaps.   I selected my fabrics;  Black Antonia Stretch Twill Suiting SKU: YY681-BLKfor the Vanessas, and Brushed  Plaid Knit in Tranquil Blue SKU: KR2401-007.  I must admit, I do find it difficult to buy fabric wit ..read more

A New Coat for a New Season

I think I’m something of an anomaly among sewing enthusiasts. I don’t believe in hoarding fabric. I have no fabric stash. I can’t stand the idea of all that beautiful fabric just sitting around waiting for me to turn it into something wearable.Of course, if you consider a few lengths―four at the most― neatly stacked along with their intended patterns to be a stash, well, I guess I’m that kind of stasher. The point is that I usually begin with a pattern when I’m sewing―the fabric comes after. This autumn, things were different. As I spent a happy hour or two surfing through Fabricville’s online ..read more

Fall in Corduroy, with Vogue 8805
Fabricville Canadian Sewing Blog
by Melanie for Following The Thread
3M ago
For this project for the Fabricville blog, after much deliberation I finally chose to use this 21 wale printed corduroy. It was a hard decision with all the new fabric releases! But when I saw the deep red accented with cobalt, green & black motifs I thought it would fit in nicely with my 80s inspired sewing of late. Also it’s quite seasonal, looking a bit like falling leaves. It’s a lightweight & fine wale corduroy so I thought its characteristics would match up well with a simple shift that doesn’t require any real movement in the fabric. I used Vogue 8805, but combined the middle ..read more

Lined coat, mandarin collar and covered buttons

Choice of project When I was younger, my mother worked in a coat and hat shop. Furs, leathers, alpaca, wool, we found all the noble and chic materials there. I loved going there to model and do a few fittings in front of the beautiful large illuminated mirrors. Since I have been sewing, the coat is without a doubt my favorite item of clothing. My closet is full of coats and capes that I can’t get rid of. Short or long, colorful or sober, the coat exists in a variety of models and styles. It can be worn with your clothes or not, with a warm scarf or a silk scarf. We always have a neat look wit ..read more

Cozy long vest

Cooler weather It is when the air gets crispier, bringing outrageous colors in the foliage, the light gets warmer, bathing everything in shades of sorbet, and the nights get longer, freeing me to conceive and birth sewing projects, that I get truly excited. Fall is the season for layered outfits, to keep us warm in the chillier mornings and give us options to shed the layers as the day progresses. And one of those brisk mornings, as my spouse was pulling out her cardigan to wrap up against the chill, she stated, as a matter of fact-ly, that she “needed” a cozy long vest. Ta-dah, went my mind ..read more

Sorry, this entry is only available in French. Pour ma première confection du printemps et pour avantager ma silhouette voluptueuse,  j’ai opté pour ce modèle de chemisier fluide.  Il tombe juste sous les hanches et j’aime beaucoup l’imprimé de mon tissu qui n’est pas trop chargé. Ce vêtement comporte un col avec bande, un empiècement avec pli au dos, une bande de boutonnage devant, des poches sur la poitrine, des manchettes et des fentes latérales. J’ai eu un coup de cœur pour ce tissu d’un bleu très doux à motifs de plumes (aspect denim). J’ai bien choisi car, en plus, cette étof ..read more

Knits for spring

Always, always I choose a fabric then decide what I want to make. Essentially I think the fabric itself knows what it wants to be, and it is just my job to listen.This is the secret we need to share with new and returning sewists–those folks who always say they find the “what fabric goes with what pattern?” issue stressful–just let the fabric talk to you. When the new spring fabrics arrived at Fabricville this month, I immediately was drawn to the cotton lycra, in navy and bright pink. The truth is I always prefer sewing with natural fibres, but my success with cotton lycras has been variable ..read more
