Fun and BOLD!

Hey there! I’m Adrian with Inspired By Adrian Denise! I am so excited to share a little about one of my most favorite sews to date! This is my first time here on the blog and I am so excited to share my make with you guys!

This jacket and this fabric were a match made in heaven!! I chose this Viscose Jersey Fabric and I seriously couldn’t be more happy with my choice! I am just smitten and I never want to take it off!!

When I saw this fabric, it was seriously love at first sight! I am sucker for all things stretchy, bold and fun! I have heard so many people speak about their fear of knits but I am the exact opposite! Sewing with knits is my happy place and so easy for me, especially when I find knits as smooth and easy to work with as this one!

This fabric has every bit of my personality all rolled up into sheer amazingness (if that’s even a word! lol) I knew that when I got this fabric that I had to pair it with my absolute most FAVORITE pattern of all time, which is McCalls 6844!!! This jacket will be a staple in my closet for sure! OMG, it’s love y’all!

So now, I’ll get into the details! As with all of my knit fabrics I serge the seams and hem with either my twin needle or cover stitch machine! This fabric went together so beautifully with absolutely no issue! From start to finish, I would say it only took me 2 hours total! I could seriously probably sew this pattern in my sleep!!! It is truly a staple and so quick and easy to sew up! I chose view C of the pattern and opted for the petite version as it gives me a better fit! It took some tweaking to finally figure out just how I like the fit and this fit is just perfect!

One of the things that I love about this pattern + fabric match is that I can seriously dress it up or down, as you can see the way I paired it with this tee that I made! It’s such a versatile piece, the options are endless!

Another reason to love this pattern is the fact that it can be made with knit or woven fabrics with absolutely no grading or changing up the fabric!!! OMG…another win win, right? As if you need anymore convincing, right?

This was actually my first experience using Viscose but definitely won’t be my last! I can’t rave enough about it! I have just a bit more left over and I’m really thinking of my next project because it really has to be used down to the last drop! Haha! Or I may just hoard it and never part with it!

So just a little recap…BUY ALL OF THIS FABRIC NOW! Hehe! You’ll be glad you did!!! Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Thanks for reading!
