Fur & Pleather Pleasure

IS MOOD CLASSIN’ ME UP OR WHAT.  This is my third non-technicolor dress!  Second in black AND white!  I am going to name this combination Rejectnocolor.  It rejects color!  Especially of the Technicolor genre!! But close up, this fabric from the Mood Fabrics NYC store is just as insane as any Oz-toned yardage.  Behold: Lookit the furry amazingness!  LOOKIT!!!  Yep.  This was another one I ran around the store with, unwilling to lose sight of its three dimensioned deliciousness for a moment. Editor’s note: This ivory faux fur with an embossed reptile print in black is also one of our favorite […]

Designer Menswear Fabric for a Little Girl’s Dress

   The menswear suitings call to me from the the pages of the Mood Designer Fabrics website.  All the houndstooth, herringbone and plaid patterns make me giddy even though I have no plans to make a men’s suit anytime soon. Gray Herringbone Suiting, Plum plaid Suiting, Beige Plaid Suiting, and a Khaki Houndstooth all made it to the final cut and I knew a little girl’s dress was the project to make. I settled on this Ralph Lauren wool houndstooth suiting sight unseen (which had me a little worried since I’m such a tactile fabric purchaser) along with a few […]

Men’s Button-Up Shirt in Silk-and-Cotton-Blend Shirting

I’ve missed sewing with wovens the past few months. Everything’s been knits, knits, knits to accommodate my growing baby belly. So, when I came across Mood Fabric’s silk and cotton blend shirting while browsing their website looking for inspiration for my next garment, I knew I wanted to make it happen somehow. I liked that the silk in the blend gave it just that extra something and that the color was a natural ivory. Before long I also stumbled upon Mood Fabric’s Stone/Cream Striped Woven, and I was struck by the idea of pairing the two together. In a men’s […]

Double-Faced Wool Crepe & Houndstooth Dress

My usual journey when starting a new garment is the fabric.  I roam the aisle of Mood Fabrics’ NYC store touching fabrics and waiting for the perfect piece to jump out at me, demanding to be brought home and sewn up. This time though, it was the pattern that spoke to me first.  It was Vogue 1370 ~ a sheath dress with fabric inserts and literally I saw the dress in black and white. With that idea in mind, I headed off to Mood to purchase fabric.  I don’t know about you, but me, I love a great wool crepe […]
