Hello fellow sewists, The sunny days of spring have me wanting to spend more time outdoors, and sewing up activewear is the perfect motivation to get some exercise while enjoying the warmer weather. I was elated to discover that Fabricville is now carrying PURELUX and DRYFLEX, which are Bluesign® approved fabrics. I did some research and the Bluesign® approval is the gold standard for sustainable textiles.  From the Fabricville website: Bluesign® approved fabrics are made according to strict social, ethical and environmental standards.  Purelux is a super soft high-tech knit perfect ..read more

Sorry, this entry is only available in French. Après mon article sur l’ensemble robe + blazer de la dernière fois, je me suis dit que j’allais, pour cet article, partir sur une tenue beaucoup plus décontractée. Je me suis donc fait une combinaison en denim. Le denim est en effet une tendance très forte ce printemps-été, surtout en total look. Pour assortir ce denim, qui est souple et fin, j’ai choisi la combinaison Blanca, de Closet Core patterns, une entreprise de patrons montréalaise. Le tissu est facile à travailler, ne fuie pas sous la machine même s’il est fin. Il est aussi très agréable ..read more

Embroidered Voile Tunic

Pattern and Fabric Choice To kick off the spring season in sewing, I decided to make the tunic from Butterick pattern B6982. It’s loose-fitting, with a mock neck, gathers at the neckline, a slit opening at the neck, and raglan sleeves adorned with buttoned cuffs. I adore the airy and billowy look of the sleeves! And the straight collar adds just the right touch of chic. I opted for this gorgeous embroidered voile fabric, made of polyester and cotton. With its slight transparency and soft texture, it offers perfect fluidity for the upcoming warm season. In red, my favorite hue, it embodies pa ..read more

The Reptilian Chic: Bold Sewing, Unexpected Elegance.

For my latest autumn creation, I felt the daring urge to dive into the world of snake print. Often associated with a dash of boldness and sophistication to spice up clothing and accessories, this reptilian pattern injects a unique energy into an outfit. As a devoted follower of classic style, the idea of embracing a full snake print look initially seemed a bit too extravagant. However, by opting for fabric in rich tones like the carefully claret crepe, I discovered that such audacity could bring a surprising touch of elegance. During my pattern search, I was drawn to this long buttoned tunic ..read more

Black Batwings for an October Outfit
Fabricville Canadian Sewing Blog
by Melanie for Following The Thread

My second project for this fall was a shimmery black batwing dress, just in time for Halloween. I love a good 80s influence, and when I saw Burda 6074, I knew I had to make it. Looking at some of the black fabrics on offer, I found this “Dazzling Black” evening fabric, a poly knit with printed sequins. A print is so much easier to sew than real sequins! In fact, this fabric was very easy to handle. It’s lightweight with fairly minimal stretch, and it behaved nicely when sewing. I used a stretch needle as this fabric was both thin and tough at the same time. This worked really well. The Burda ..read more

Sorry, this entry is only available in French. Pour ce tailleur, je suis partie sur un total look Vikisews. Le blazer est le patron Fernanda, et la robe est le modèle Lynne. J’ai joué sur les longueurs, afin que la robe et le blazer soient à peu près de la même longueur, et qu’on dirait que j’ai en fait une robe-blazer lorsque celui-ci est fermé. J’ai adoré coudre ce tissu. Il s’agit du tissu pour costume Leighton, en bleu marine à rayures. La teneur en viscose de ce tissu lui confère un drapé superbe, qui épouse les formes, et c’est tout à fait ce que je voulais avec ce projet. On ne voit pa ..read more

Hygge sewing

Early last spring, when I was in San Francisco, I saw some pants on the streets, and in the stores, that were new to me. They all had wide legs, elastic waists, and were made out of wide wale corduroy. Like all new fashions, it took me a bit to get used to this style, but when I did I couldn’t help thinking they would be perfect for home wear in the Canadian fall and winter. I decided to look for something really snugly for dog-walking, sewing and cruising around the house. This corduroy was perfect. Luckily this year’s new Jalie releases had two patterns that were just perfect for this mo ..read more
