Honeybee Senna Tote

honeybee Senna totes made by Skirt Fixation

Recently Aria entered her teenage years.  I’ve been sewing my children their birthday gifts for a while now (see what I made for Aria last year.)  Aria has been expressing admiration at both my Senna Tote and the miniature one I made for Annie’s Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection, so that is what I chose to make for her.  I’ve dubbed this one the Honeybee Senna Tote.

I decided to make Aria’s at 70%, so printed the Senna Tote pattern pieces at that percentage and added a little bit to the edges for seam allowances.

Small, Medium and Large Senna Totes made by Skirt Fixation

It turned out medium size.  (Try not to squint too hard from the mismatched fabrics, this photo is for size reference only!)  The dimensions of the Honeybee Senna Tote are: 12.5 L x 12 H x 3.5 W.

In all the fabrics and material I gathered for these Senna Totes, nature and earthy was my goal.  I used Echino Decoro Bees Kokka fabric from Urban Sew for the main fabric.  Because of the weight of this fabric (it’s basically canvas) I didn’t need to use a canvas interlining, so less cutting!

The denim on the Honeybee Senna Tote is from a pair of jeans and a denim skirt.  The handles and back pocket are from the jeans and the lining is from the skirt.

For the bottom of the Honeybee Senna Tote, I used some embossed pleather I had in my stash.  I have no clue where it came from before it was in the stash, but here is something similar you could use.  Deadwood Faux Leather Chocolate Fabric  (affiliate link)

For the front pocket, I used the same gold fabric I used on my Senna Tote because it reminded me of the color of honey.  And since there were already bees and flowers on the Honeybee Senna Tote, there had to be honey too!

I’m linking this Honeybee Senna Tote up to Purse Palooza 2015 over at Sew Sweetness with absolutely no expectations to win the contest.  Why?  Because there are some AH-mazing purses, totes, clutches and wallets linked up there.  Serious talent!

So you may be wondering why there are 2 of these Honeybee Senna Totes in the photos.  Well, the Skirt Fixation team has decided to reopen our shop, so keep your eyes peeled for the grand opening!  You can now buy this Senna Tote in our Etsy shop.

Nani Iro Maxi Skirt For Summer

Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

When I made Annie a skirt from Nani Iro fabric I was very jealous!  It was just so soft and dreamy.  And the woodblock print just spoke to me.  I just couldn’t get over it, so I ordered some more for myself.  Before it arrived, I thought maybe I’d make myself a shirt with it, but once it arrived, once again I couldn’t cut it!  It had to be a Nani Iro maxi skirt.Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt FixationI’ve been working on my Summer Capsule Wardrobe along with Becca from Free Notion.  (Yes, it’s the same Becca from Challenge Create: Adult Edition!)  Through her guidance I (and about 300 other people sewing along!) purged my closet, dialed in on my fashion, color and style, made a muslin or two and started sewing!  This Nani Iro maxi skirt is one of the first things I’ve completed.Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt FixationI got the Nani Iro woodblock fabric from Urban Sew during a crazy 40% off sale!  (Remember when they sponsored an edition of All The Skirts?)  If you’re not signed up for their emails, you should do it as soon as possible so you can be notified of sales like this in the future.  This fabric is a double gauze, Nani Iro by Naomi Ito called Woodblock Pocho.  Or pure, soft, floaty goodness, whichever you prefer!  If you’re hesitating on your first double gauze fabric purchase because you’re concerned about wrinkling, you can rest assured.  It does wrinkle some, not much.  For reference, this photo shoot was taken in the late afternoon after wearing the skirt all day long!  So not many wrinkles.Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt FixationI used the Anna Marie Horner free skirt tutorial called Flirting the Issue.  I love the way this skirt is constructed, and the waistband is probably my favorite ever for comfort!  I only made 2 changes to the pattern.  Instead of having 2 side seams, I just took my 2 yard piece of Nani Iro and folded it in 1/2, right sides together, to make 1 seam in the back.  (Remember I said I simply couldn’t cut it?  I did not make one single cut!) Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt FixationThe other change is that only the waistband is lined.  A full lining made the skirt bunch out like a tutu around the waist, so I cut it off right below the waistband.  The full lining would work for a heavier fabric, but the Nani Iro is too lightweight for a full lining.  Because I am 6 feet tall, the full width of the fabric (41/42 inches) was a perfect width.  For the hem, I just turned the selvedge under 1/4 inch and stitched it down.Nani Iro maxi skirt sewn by Skirt FixationNow I’m ready to face the heat of summer (which makes my hair curl!!) in my new, lightweight Nani Iro maxi skirt.  Have you ever sewn with double gauze?  Please share how you got over the fear of cutting it!

Pixie Strip Skirt {All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew}

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban Sew

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban Sew

With great delight and a little sadness, we present you the final skirt in this edition of All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew!  The Pixie Strip Skirt is such a fun skirt that we can’t possibly be sad for long!  And to make it even more fun, we used Heather Ross’s Far Far Away line of fabric from Urban Sew.  And then we added a lacy, knotted shrug!  Lets take them individually:

Jocole Pixie Strip Skirt:

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban Sew

This Jocole pattern is pure fun.  Like for when your girl is ready to kick up her heels and have a blast!  It has a cute little handkerchief hem made from the 6 strips of fabric.  You can probably tell from the photos how light and flippy this skirt is!  Whenever a gust of wind came along, the skirt started to dance all on it’s own, and Annie would shriek delightedly!

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban SewThis skirt is the perfect skirt to showcase several selections from a line of fabric.  Little prints, big prints, busy prints, and so on.  The combinations are probably endless.

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban SewWe also sewed up a Pixie Strip skirt for one of Annie’s dolls, since there was enough fabric left and the instructions are included in the pattern.  As well as sizes newborn to 14.  This is a tutorial type pattern with only the waist circumference cutout as a pattern piece.  So if you dislike tiling patterns, or dislike math calculations, this is the pattern for you!

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban Sew

We chose fabric from Urban Sew in the Far Far Away prints (which are on sale right now!) to make this skirt.  Urban Sew has a really nice selection of the Far Far Away line by Heather Ross.  So fun!  This fabric was soft and easy to work with.  One note, if you are going to use directional prints to make this skirt, be sure that they are facing toward the ground so nothing is upside down!  We had to turn over the little frogs waiting to be kissed; no sense in dumping a future prince on his head!

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban SewThe lace shrug we made from the free Forget Me Knot dress pattern over at The Sewing Rabbit.  We adore Jess, the mastermind behind The Sewing Rabbit, and were ecstatic when she was chosen as the Project Run & Play sewing master for March.  We had a hard time narrowing down all the choices this pattern inspired in us, but finally decided on a Boho-Hippy-Chic look!  We flipped the pattern around backward, omitted the lining and the skirt, straightened out the back curve, and ended up with this lacy shrug!

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban SewWe love just had to feature those awesome knots infront, and we also love how the ties on the knots echo the handkerchief hem of the Pixie Strip skirt!

Jocole's Pixie Strip Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Far Far Away fabric by Heather Ross from Urban Sew

And we had to make one for Annie doll, since she already had the matching skirt.  Then because we were having so much fun making knots, we made a knotted headband too by cutting out 2 more back ties and sewing them onto a piece of elastic.

Double Layer Ruffle Skirt {All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew}

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban Sew

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewThe Double Layer Ruffle Skirt from Jocole is another skirt with limitless possibilities!  With three places to mix and match fabrics, there are so many different looks you could make.   Plain on top with a patterned fabric underneath.  Floral on top and bottom.  Plain on top and bottom with patterned fabric in the middle like we made.

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewLike all Jocole skirt patterns, this one is easy and fast to sew up.  In fact, we could probably just copy and paste here what we’ve written about any of the other Jocole skirts and it would apply!  That’s not to say it’s similar to any other Jocole skirt…there isn’t another one like it, but the versatility and ease of sewing is common with the other Jocole skirt patterns.

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewThis skirt pattern is a tutorial-style pattern with measurements given for the three pattern pieces.  So no printing, tiling, taping, cutting, etc before you get to the sewing!  We were able to make this skirt in about an hour!

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewThe Double Layer Ruffle Skirt pattern has measurements for so many sizes, from NB to 14 with the doll pattern too!  You could literally buy this skirt pattern and make some little girl happy for years and years to come!

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban Sew

This spectacular map fabric is from Urban Sew.  It is another Japanese import fabric, called Kokka in the World Map Double Gauze.  Yep, that’s right, our love affair with double gauze fabric is raging strong!

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewAt first this fabric looks like camoflague, but upon closer inspection, you see the continent shapes.  It’s no secret we love maps and map fabric.  The solid blue (don’t you think it looks like water under the earth?) also came from Urban Sew, and it’s the very high quality Robert Kaufman Rain from Cambridge fabric.

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewThis photo shoot turned out magnificent!  We have been stretched during cold weather to find suitable props and great lighting.

Jocole Double Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Kokka world map fabric from Urban SewEveryone chipped in on this idea, backdrop and props for this one, and it turned out so darling!

Sweater Refashion, from Big to Little!

sweater refashion by Skirt Fixation

This is a sweater refashion we really love!

sweater refashion by Skirt Fixation

As I mentinoned last week, I found a hooded sweater in the women’s section at Goodwill, but couldn’t even fit my arms into the sleeves.  When Annie tried it on, the sleeves fit around, but were too long (as was the sweater in general) and one of the cuffs was shredded.  After thinking about it for awhile, I decided the previous owner must have shrunk it in the wash because I’m pretty sure no human is sized like an adult in arms and height, but like a 5 year old around!  So suffice it to say, this sweater refashion took quite a bit of work!

I wanted to keep as many existing seams as possible because this sweater is acrylic and started to shed as soon as I cut into it.  Also, any new seams I made had to be finished with a zig zag stitch on the raw edges.

FrontPiece

I used the Mademoiselle Muscle Tee pattern to make this sweater into a vest.  I laid my front pattern piece on the front of the sweater and cut around the top only.

Then I flipped the sweater over to the back and cut around the top of the back piece, flipping the pattern piece over when I got to the middle.

When I got over to the front, I repeated the first step.

From there, I stitched my shoulders together.  Then I cut the binding trim off the hood and shortened it to use as trim around the new neckline.

With the remaining hood binding and the cuffs, I was able to make the sleeve bindings you see on the finished vest.

The only thing left to do was to take off the top button and stitch shut the top button hole with a zig zag stitch.

Jocole Ruffle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation using Nano Iro from Urban Sew

There was another refashion included in this outfit.  The skirt has shorts under it.  Instead of making a whole new pair, I simply cut off a pair of leggings that were too short for Annie and had a hole in one knee.

sweater refashion by Skirt Fixation

I didn’t even hem these because this knit won’t fray and is hidden under the skirt.  Annie loves how they are attached to the skirt!

So there you have it, a new, refashioned outfit!

Circle Skirt Tutorial using Narrow Fabric

Skirt Fixation circle skirt tutorial

If you find a circle skirt tutorial on the internet, it will probably require you to use 60” wide fabric.  This makes sense because when you actually make a circle skirt, you cut a circle in the center for the waistband, and a wider circle using the whole width of the fabric for the length of the skirt.  And unless you are making a circle skirt for a girl, or you want a really short one, you have to use 60” wide fabric.  And then it ends about midi length.  So what do you do if you want a longer circle skirt or you want to use narrow fabric?  Well, there a couple of options.

First option: Cut two 1/2 circles on the edges of your fabric and sew them together at the sides.  This uses an extraordinary amount of fabric, wastes a lot, and sometimes the seams can hang longer or unevenly.  But it does accomplish the purpose.  So we found another way.

Circle Skirt Tutorial Using Narrow Fabric

Skirt Fixation circle skirt tutorial

2.  Make extensions on the sides of your fabric where the widest part of the circle will cross.  This eliminates the issue with the seams hanging uneven because the extension is not heavy.  And very little fabric is wasted.

Skirt Fixation circle skirt tutorial

This photo shows the cut lines.  You can see that without the extensions, the length of the skirt would have been much shorter!

Skirt Fixation circle skirt tutorial

And after it’s cut out.  Can you spot the extensions?  With fabric this busy, they are really hard to find!

Skirt Fixation circle skirt tutorial

Here you can see a close up of where the extension is, but it’s almost invisible on the finished skirt.  Of course if you match your patterns, this seam line will disappear entirely.  And when she spins, who would ever know?

Drop & Twirl Circle Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

There are so many delightful 44/45” fabrics available, and now you can make a circle skirt from them too, using our circle skirt tutorial and narrow fabric.  We chose to use this fabric from Urban Sew.  It’s called Oopsy Daisy, from Westminster fabrics, and is part of their La Dee Da line by Erin McMorris.  Right now, it’s only $6 per yard which is a screaming good deal!

Our favorite circle skirt pattern is the Drop & Twirl Circle Skirt from Jocole Patterns.  If you make it, or any Jocole pattern, be sure to link up to the Jocole and Urban Sew link party!  And enter our giveaway to win 3 patterns of your choice from Jocole and a $40 gift certificate to Urban Sew.

Combine these two things with our circle skirt tutorial for narrow fabric, and start spinning!

Girl’s Jocole Yoga A-Line Skirt {All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew}

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt sewn with Urban Sew fabric by Skirt Fixation

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt sewn with Urban Sew fabric by Skirt Fixation

Maxi skirts on little girls are about as cute as it gets!  It’s sort of like mini me.  Cuteness from head to toe!  This is the Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt in the maxi length for girls.  And the girl’s Yoga A-line Skirt has so many options…true to form for a Jocole pattern.  There are 12 different sizes from 18m to 14 and doll sizes.  There are 3 waistband options.  There are 2 length options and 2 design options (chevron or plain) and there is a slimmer silhouette option. Then there is a free tutorial for a hi-lo hem modification.  And the additional instructions for adding elastic to the waist if desired.  Or shorts underneath.  Basically, if you have this pattern, you’re set!

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt sewn with Urban Sew fabric by Skirt Fixation

And because this is the 6th Jocole Yoga A-line skirt I’ve sewn, and the assembly is exactly like the women’s, I was able to make it in less than an hour, from printing out the pattern to hanging the finished skirt on a hanger for Annie to see when she woke up in the morning!  Seriously.

Jocole Yoga A-line Skirt sewn with Urban Sew fabric by Skirt Fixation

The fabric we made it from came from Urban Sew, of course.  It is an interlock knit with great recovery and a fun print.  In fact, this fabric was designed by Liesl Gibson, one of our sewing idols.  And we haven’t seen this fabric anywhere else. But we love Urban Sew’s dedication to foster care children through their donation of $1 from every yard of fabric sold.

Jocole knit pencil skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation with Urban Sew fabric

We’re back with another awesome Jocole skirt made with wonderful Urban Sew knit fabric.  This week we sewed up the Jocole Knit Pencil Skirt.  This skirt just emphasizes what we’ve been saying all along about Jocole skirt patterns; good, basic, comfortable, wardrobe builders.  The Jocole Knit Pencil Skirt gives you every possible fitting option to create a nice, well-fitting knit pencil skirt for yourself.  There are so many different options on ways to make this skirt, 3 different waistbands, 2 different waist heights, and 8 different lengths!

Jocole knit pencil skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation with Urban Sew fabric

We chose a delicious grey and yellow striped knit fabric from Urban Sew to make this skirt.  This is the perfect weight knit for a pencil skirt, not too thin, good drape, medium weight, and oh so soft!  Matching up the stripes on the sides was easy and rewarding!!

Jocole knit pencil skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation with Urban Sew fabric

Using striped fabric to make the Jocole pencil skirt adds even more options to your ways to sew the Jocole Knit Pencil Skirt.  You can orient the stripes horizontally, like we chose to this time, or you could orient them vertically for a mod, slimming look, or the pattern even shows how to layout the pattern pieces to achieve a chevron pattern in the front and back!  Very cool, huh?
