Introducing the Fabiana Peplum

Sunday, May 04, 2014

I am so excited to finally introduce my third pattern the Fabiana Peplum to the world. Although this pattern was completed a while ago, I have been trying to perfect it one eighth of an inch at a time. Because the nesting of this pattern was so complicated it  I wanted to find a way to get it to you precut. This took a lot of research, phone calls and meetings. Lucky me, lucky you, I found a way to do it. I think you will find having a precut pattern saves so much time and energy. The top and dress version is a fast sew, making this a one day project!!!

However, I must confess the reason it has taken me so long is because I am so tired. I hope some of you can relate. I am 13 weeks pregnant, and with a 2 year old and 13 month old, I am finding myself falling asleep every time they do. This is so not like me. I am usually always on the go, but the past 2 months I have been just a wreck, and, unfortunately, it has affected my work. As much as I love my new pattern business, my store, Five Eighth Seams, and my sewing, students come first, so I have just been busy and unbelievably tired. Who knew making a baby could be so exhausting?! I am starting to finally get some energy back, so I am sorry this process has taken so long.

 The good news is that I have been working with a company that has helped me design this pattern, so that it can be printed on freezer paper and then cut out with a laser. What does that mean? No more tracing, no more cutting paper, and, for those of you that iron your freezer paper on, no more pinning! I have already printed a batch on heavy paper that is extremely sturdy and tested well. I will be printing the second batch on freezer paper. 

What makes me a little nervous about having a precut pattern is the ability to steal and share easily with friends. I guess all patterns can be shared; this way is just a lot easier. I’m hoping that my belief that the sewing community is full of good, amazing, honest people will make all my work worth it. Maybe a little karma will help, too. 

This pattern has been tested in 2 rounds, and, so far, everyone has loved it! The only major change is that the bodice has been extended on size 5 and up. Other than that, it's almost identical. Here are some fun tester pictures. Because I had so many testers this time, it is too many to list, but I am very thankful and appreciate all of their feedback!

The pattern comes in either sizes 12m-4 or 5-12. Each pattern retails at $15.90. Wholesale is available and anyone interested should contact me at

We had a great time taking cover photos with Alison Stanfield of Alison Stanfield Photography. Here are some of the pics!

For whatever length of time that you enter 10 or 26 x 16 strings as an encoded secret phrase can secure your remote system. The WPA make arranges increasingly secure and solid. You Should take note of that remote switch remote encryption is killed when they go out. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you surrender this capacity, at that point your system is a system of serious uncertainty, so you should empower this component.
