Blithe Fabrics Blog Tour

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

Thanks for stopping by today on the Blithe Fabrics Blog Tour.  If you‘ve been around here before, you know how much we love Art Gallery Fabrics for their superior quality and amazing designs.  Blithe Fabrics are designed by Katarina Rocella, and like her other lines, we are absolutely in love with this newest line.  (Be sure to stick around to the end of the post where I am giving away 1 yard of Blithe canvas!!!)

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

For this tour we chose some special patterns to go with these special fabrics.  Naturally, we’re going to start with the skirt!

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

This is the midi length of our Runway Skirt, available from Savvy Patterns.  We’ve made many versions of the Runway Skirt, but never one using both patterned fabric for the godets and the skirt itself.

But we just knew it would work out beautifully because the Art Gallery Blithe Jersey Knit Bird Songs Sun Fabric used for the skirt and the Art Gallery Blithe Voile Bird Songs Moon Fabric used for the godets are both the same print in different colorways.

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

Aria has decided this is the perfect skirt for upcoming spring months.  As usual, the Art Gallery Blithe Jersey Knit Bird Songs Sun Fabric is a dream to work with and the perfect weight for this skirt.

And the Art Gallery Blithe Voile Bird Songs Moon Fabric is lightweight, semi-transparent and perfectly suited for the godets in the back.

Next, we chose to work with Art Gallery Blithe Canvas Evergreens Frozen Fabric from the Blithe Fabrics line.  We’ve made 2 jackets from Art Gallery Fabrics canvas, and really looked forward to working with it again to make this Lonetree Vest.

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

This canvas is very soft and supple to work with.  The only downside of the canvas is that the edges can fray if left raw.  But with a pattern like the Lonetree Vest and Jacket, this is not a problem as all the raw edges are enclosed.  I don’t know if I’ve ever worked with a pattern as professional as the Lonetree.

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

In this photo you can see part of the inside, but each seam is finished with a Hong Kong finish and the edges of the facing are enclosed, making the inside of the vest just a s beautiful as the outside.  the lining and Hong Kong seams use shot cotton.

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

I lined up the pattern around the front and back of the vest as best I could, and because of the painterly effect of the trees and forest on the canvas, it want too hard of a task.

Skirt Fixation for the Blithe Blog Tour

We chose to add both the collar and the hood to this Lonetree Vest.  Aria said that beside being soft, this vest is really very warm too.  I am so excited to use the Lonetree Vest and Jacket pattern again to make more gaments.

This is the 1st garment made from the Lonetree Vest or Jacket I’ve seen that used printed fabric.  I think Art Gallery Blithe Canvas Evergreens Frozen Fabric works rather nicely, especially with the Runway Skirt from the same in of fabric.  Aria and I are still deciding whether to use silver buttons on the pockets or use velcro under the flaps for a more subtle finish.  What do you think?

Aria’s 4H Sewing Project

4H sewing project by Skirt Fixation

This year 2 of us chose sewing for a 4H project.  You can read about Annie’s project here.  Today Aria is sharing her 4H sewing project.

This year for 4-H I did a three-part sewing project that included a shirt, a skirt, and a jacket. All three were made from varying weights of knit.

4H sewing project

The Veronika Skirt

This was made from a heavy knit from JoAnn Fabrics that I have used before and is super awesome! I made it for All The Skirts: Megan Nielsen & Imagine Gnats.  You can read our full review here.

4H sewing project by Skirt Fixation

The Halifax Hoodie

For the jacket I used a lighter French Terry for the first time.  I am happy to say that even though it was a lighter knit it was really easy to use!  The Halifax Hoodie from Hey June Handmade is a really nice sew up as well!  I used the third option with a zipper, pockets, and a hood.  The instructions were easy to follow but I was still really glad to have Mom’s help, especially when I did the pockets, zipper, and hood because it was my first time doing any of those!  I followed the instructions and it made my firsts easy ones!  The first thing I sewed was the pockets.  These were pretty easy except for the trying to keep them straight and sew through a lot of layers at one time, so I still think they are a bit crooked yet…  The next thing I did was the zipper.  This was completely different from anything I had ever done before.  I put a lot of pins in to hold it straight, went slow, and had Mom to help me!  I was pretty impressed by how well it turned out and how easy it was!  The last ‘difficult’ thing I did was the hood.  I had pretty much no trouble assembling it, but attaching it to the rest of the jacket was the difficult part.  There were a lot of layers, but when I attached the binding to enclose the seam allowances it looked pretty good!  The rest, compared to this was really easy!  The French Terry was super fun to work with and I really like the finished result!

4H sewing project by Skirt Fixation

The Lane Raglan Shirt

This was not my first Lane Raglan by Hey June Handmade that I sewed, but it was the first with a lightweight fabric that I made.  This fabric was pretty difficult to cut and sew, and I’m not really impressed with the result.  At this point, we were also having difficulty with the machine sewing using a double needle, so that didn’t help much either.  I really liked the simplicity of the pattern last time I made a Lane Raglan, but this time with the lightweight knit, it really hindered progress a lot.  I sewed the neckband on wrong and had to pick it out, which left a lot of holes.  Something happened on the sleeves, and there I had to sew some tucks in the shoulder, but the rest of the shirt turned out ok.

I really enjoyed sewing the skirt and the hoodie, but I did learn that I probably shouldn’t be sewing too much on lighter knits yet!

4H sewing project by Skirt Fixation

The lady who judged my sewing project at the county fair said she didn’t have any experience sewing with knits, but when my project went to state fair, the judge had some very helpful comments. One of them was on the hoodie, to try and line up the seam under the arm a bit better. I’d really like to sew another Halifax Hoodie sometime.

Bringing home our Crafting Con Post

This week is Kids Clothes Week where lots of people sew clothes for their kids!  Since ALL the sewing I’m doing this week for kids is secret sewing that I can’t share on the blog yet, I thought I’d bring home some posts we’ve published elsewhere.  That way I can sew to my heart’s content!  Please enjoy this post first published on Crafting Con for the Games theme.

Hello Crafting Con fans!  We’re the gals from Skirt Fixation, and we’re delighted to be here today with our Board Games look.  When we saw who our fellow competitors were going to be, we got really scared and knew we were going to have to up our game.  So we opted for the oldest, most thought provoking board game to ever challenge mankind, CHESS!  We knew this was going to be intense, and we had to make every move count or we would find ourselves checkmated.  Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConChess is always played by 2 people, so we needed 2 outfits for our 2 players.  A black one vs a white one.  Check.  A boy vs a girl.  Check.Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConSince white always goes first, and our girl is representing white, we’ll start with her outfit.  Plus it includes a skirt, and skirts is what we do!  Since we are currently sewing up ALL the Oliver + S skirts, we were looking for an excuse to sew the free Lazy Days skirt.  This skirt is the perfect palette for a game of chess.  Check.Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConAfter sewing on a strip of checkered fabric, we stenciled on two complete white chess sets, one on each the front and the back, in the proper setup order.  After all, this is Crafting Con, which is for nerds, and nerds would immediately notice if the chess pieces weren’t in the right set up.  So proper chess order it was.  Check. Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting Con

For her top, we sewed up a simple staple piece, the Oliver + S Metro shirt.  Chess is all about strategy, and our girl was very strategic in trying to create an outfit she could wear everyday after the photo shoot.  Check.Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConOur boy is representing the black chess pieces.  It was pretty obvious he needed a Knight Hoodie, and so to settle the chess theme once and for all, we used our tutorial to reverse appliqué the knight chess piece onto the back of his Knight Hoodie.  Check. Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConA boy can’t go around pant-less, so we sewed him a pair of Oliver+S Field Trip Cargo Pants.  These pants are very labor intensive, and require the seamstress to slow down and think; just like chess.  Check. Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConAll the topstitching is doubled to echo the chess dual happening.  Check.Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConNext came the photo shoot.  Chess has been around for so long that it’s a reoccurring theme in many books, movies, and events.  Think of the chess scenes in 2 Harry Potter movies, R2D2 vs Chewbacca, the mysterious opponent in The Westing Game, Alice In Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie.

Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConWe threw around location ideas; a castle to represent the rook, a church to represent the bishop, a concrete parking garage to represent modern day chess.  But we finally narrowed it down to an Alice In Wonderland feel.  Check. Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConSince the outfits were all in black and white, of course, we felt a red clover field would add some color and texture and interest to the photos.  A caricature of the seriousness of chess and the players black and white outfits.     Fiction vs. Reality.  Check.

Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting Con

All that was left was to determine which chess board to use.  (We have three!)  In the end, the players felt the American Revolution chess set would play off the Ancient vs. Modern theme we had going on.  Check.

These two got very competitive (after all, the stage had been set!) and they didn’t even notice the way I moved them around as if they were my pawns; turn this way, stand there, sit here, move to the left, step forward, put your leg back.  In the end, and it was very, very close, this time white triumphed over black.  Checkmate.Chess outfits created and sewn by Skirt Fixation for Crafting ConPlease visit us over at Skirt Fixation where we have the free chess pieces templates so you can make  your own chess themed clothing.  And more photos, and a detailed review of each of these patterns.

In Summary:

Pants Pattern: Oliver+S Field Trip Cargo Pants

Mix ‘n Match Swimwear

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

Today is my stop on the Summer Swimwear blog tour.  Recently, Call Ajaire, Gracious Threads, and The Wolf and the Tree all released swimwear patterns.  Follow along on the blog tour to see what everyone made, and also enter below to win some prizes.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

I signed up for the Summer Swimwear blog tour because I am a beginner at sewing swimwear and wanted to be challenged to improve.  One time I had sewn swimwear before was last summer when I made Annie a swimsuit for our Modern Chloris mini wardrobe.  Since that suit is still fitting her pretty well, I wanted to create mix n’ match swimwear, so she can choose which ones to wear and still match.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

Here’s what Annie had to start with:

Tankini Top Pattern: Modified Charming Tee by Lil Luxe Collection (Detailed pattern review & photos here.)

Tankini Top Fabric: Navy performancewear fabric from JoAnn Fabrics

Tankini Skirt Pattern: Cabana Swim Bottoms by PeekABoo Pattern Shop affiliate link  (Detailed pattern review & photos here.)

Tankini Skirt Fabric: White Fans on Navy Lycra Swimsuit Fabric from The Fabric Fairy

Swimsuit lining from The Fabric Fairy

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

I started adding pieces by sewing a Just Keep Swimming rash guard from ultra thin white swimwear fabric from my stash.  Annie is very fair and burns easily, so the idea is to cover up as much skin as possible while still allowing her to enjoy the water.  I used this fabric intending that whatever top is underneath could still show through.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

It would also be fun to make a rash guard from this mesh fabric from Imagine Gnats.  The Just Keep Swimming rash guard was very easy to make.  The patterns are complete, easy to follow and illustrated with both photographs and illustrations.  Making this rash guard was just like making a t-shirt but with swimwear fabric.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

Next I sewed a pair of medium shorts with a yoga waistband from the Just Keep Swimming pattern.  Once again, this was a very easy sew.  I used fabric from Hancock Fabric’s going out of business sale.  I wish I’d gotten a whole bunch more because it’s very thick and not transparent.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

Feeling confident with my beginner swimwear sewing abilities, I decided to tackle a tankini top from the Classic Malliot pattern by Call Ajaire.  I ended up with something Annie can wear, (and likes) but had tough go of it!

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

I think before I tackle another swimsuit from this pattern, I’m going to up my swimwear sewing abilities.  I wouldn’t recommend this pattern for other beginners to sewing swimwear…it’s probably not the pattern, just my lack of sophistication at sewing with swimwear fabrics.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

I used more fabric from the Hancock Fabrics sale with fabric for the back ties leftover from sewing the skirt last year.  I sewed view G in a size 7 width with size 12 length as I did for all the swimwear mix ’n match pieces I sewed.

Mix 'n Match swimwear sewn by Skirt Fixation

In the end, I guess that it doesn’t matter that I missed catching the lining in a few spots, (maybe, probably) attached the straps wrong, and didn’t stretch the fabric evenly while topstitching.  All that really matters is that Annie has a new swimsuit that actually fits her which she loves.

Ombre Syrah Skirt

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

As in years past, I made myself a skirt for my birthday.  And of course, it’s my new favorite skirt to wear!  But this time it’s for a very good reason.

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

I sewed the Syrah Skirt pattern (full pattern review here.)  I chose it for this fabric because it has a lining, and this fabric is rather thin.  What is that fantastic fabric, you ask?  I got it at JoAnn Fabrics, here’s the direct link:  Knit Fabric-Double Border Ombre Slub Knit Mint (affiliate link)

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

It’s a knit fabric, with a double border ombre knit.  To get a full length maxi skirt with the ombre running vertically down the skirt, I had to lay my Syrah pattern pieces horizontally across the grain of the fabric.  This worked out because the fabric has 4 way stretch.  This fabric is perfect for a Syrah Skirt.  It’s flow-y and swishy and has awesome movement which you can’t really tell from still photographs.  But this skirt seriously makes me want to walk barefoot along the beach!  I put in my request to Mr. Skirt Fixation…

Also, here’s my secret to get that soft, dreamy, minty look: I used the wrong side of the fabric!

Knit Fabric-Double Border Ombre Slub Knit Mint Yep!  If you look at this photo on the JoAnn Fabric’s website, you’ll notice it’s greener than my skirt.  Plus it has the trendy “slub knit” texture thing going on, which I also didn’t want on a scale as large as the Syrah Skirt.  So, to quote, “It’s my party and I’ll cry use the wrong side of the fabric if I want to!”

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

Of course a skirt this fantastic needed a basic to support and accentuate all it’s greatness, so I paired it with my Union St. Tee.  (Oh, and a fun side note; today we’re celebrating Hey June June over on Instagram, so check that out!)  And those shoes?  They were given to my daughters by their cousin, and passed on to me completely unworn.  All the teenagers wanted them back once they saw me pairing them with my new Syrah Skirt, but I said no.  It was my birthday and all.

Ombre Syrah Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

Alright, leave me a comment about something.  Do you have a birthday tradition?  Have you ever used the wrong side of the fabric?  Stolen your daughter’s shoes?

Thoughts on Me Made May:

Me Made May is an event that is held on Instagram in May.  The purpose is to promote handmade clothing in contrast to factory/third world country sewn garments.  As with our Buy or DIY skirts series, it illustrated very well the advantages of sewing your own clothing.  Many seamstresses who participate grow tired of posting selfies in their handmade duds, and indeed that was the very reason I dropped out of Me Made May last year.  I don’t do selfies, but I do wear handmade clothing (almost) every day.  So this year I thought I’d try flat lay photos to show what I was wearing each day.  I learned some things about flat lay photo layouts through the process:

  • My most “liked” photo was this one I’m guessing people liked the fabric of the top and the color combination.
  • My most commented on photo was this one due to questions about the fabric and pattern sources.  I’m guessing the bright colors caught everyone’s eye as they were scrolling.
  • My personal favorite outfit was this one…probably because it is new!
  • Shoes look better when laid like this with one on it’s side.
  • Lighting matters
  • Wrinkles matter

That’s about it!  Got any other tips for flat lay photos for me?  How about handmade clothes?  Or Me Made May?

Usually on Fridays we post about our All The Skirts series.  But we’re taking a month long break because our next fabric sponsor, Imagine Gnats, closed her shop for a month due to a surgery.  And we really want you to be able to get fabric from her amazing shop!  So we’ll continue All The Skirts the first Friday in June.
