On the Road: DG Expo in NYC.

And we're back!
The past two days Julie and I visited and worked in the big apple to show Fabric Mart's wholesale collection at the DG Expo.
It was my first trip with Fabric Mart and I had a wonderful time seeing new places in New York and meeting our customers and friends at the show. 
Of course I took a few pictures along the way!
Julie and I grabbed a quick picture after we successfully finished our first long day working in the city!
And did I mention that we had an amazing view from our room of the Empire State building?
We ate a lot of good food! 
 Here's Julie at our booth.
We had two tables full of fabric! It was quite the selection. 
 We came prepared with our entire inventory of headers. 
(If you need any fabric, we have it.
Visit our wholesale website if you are a designer, manufacturer, or fabric store.

I can't wait until our next adventure!
Till next time New York. - Kaitlin

Made by a Fabricista: Spring is for Shirtdress

I love shirt dresses! My pattern collection reflects this (I may or may not have eight shirt dress patterns) but somehow my closet does not. I have just two DIY shirt dresses (Mimi G's Katie dress and Simplicity 8546) and maybe two RTW versions. So it's high time that I added some to my wardrobe.


This polyester blouse weight twill by Milly has the perfect weight and drape for a relaxed shirt dress. If you prefer a more structured look, stick to a cotton shirting or light weight sateen. I loved this fabric and print so much that I grabbed both colorways. Unfortunately this fabric is sold out, but you can browse other shirtings and blouse weight fabrics here.


This fabric has a somewhat slinky feel, but isn't truly slippery. There's also a slight sheen without being shiny like a satin. It was easy to cut and sew, but I did get a few snags when pinning so make sure you use sharp pins and a fresh machine needle. I serged my pieces before assembling the pattern because as m…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

Hello, fellow fabric enthusiasts and sewers alike ! My name is Mary Martha and I am thrilled to be presenting a guest post for Fabric Mart's Fabricista blog. As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite. (They're fantastic !) Since the start, I have dressed the part of the characters when attending these performances, beginning with outfits fashioned from scarves and skirts in my mother's closet to more ornate costumes. It was during this time that I taught myself to sew using a sewing machine and I haven't looked back ─ my life was changed forever !
In December 2018, I subscribed to Julie's Picks swatch club as an educational experience: I wanted to expand my knowledge of different fabrics besides the typical polyester satins I h…
