Fan Feature: Margy from Fool 4 Fabric.

Meet Margy from the blog Fool 4 Fabric: 
She has been sewing for 65+ years and is now enjoying life and blogging about her creations. 
Margy caught our eye with her fun style and her passion for sewing. 
 When we asked her to be a guest blogger she happily accepted and whipped something up 
from Fabric Mart fabric. We just love seeing projects made from our fabric! 
So, here's Margy!
"One of my favorite parts of travel is putting together a travel wardrobe. For an upcoming trip to Sicily, I am planning combinations of my favorite black and white, with a little touch of red. It will be quite warm in Sicily in September, so I am searching my fabric stash for lightweight and wrinkle-resistant fabrics. 
  I chose a Dana Buchman ikat print in black and white from Fabric Mart. I made a scarf/bandana out of it for a trip to Ethiopia last January...talk about hot! I was amazed that this fabric was lightweight, cool and never wrinkled. So...I made a shirt from B5526, a TNT (tried and true) pattern, using View C, but changing it up a lot, as I always do! 
 I added some gathered pockets, (you can never have too many pockets when traveling!) and made a gathered ruffle to use instead of a collar. I have already worn this long shirt here at home, where we've had a lot of hot days lately. This is definitely going in my suitcase in September!"

Thank you, Margy!

Made by a Fabricista: Coming Up Roses

 From vision to reality. As we are headed into April, I can feel the spring breeze on the horizon and with that means fun time outside, be it eating brunch with friends on a terrace or going to the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to add some bright fun color into my spring wardrobe that I really haven't used and over a year.  I had been eyeing this beautiful red stripe shirting with blue roses fabric for a while not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it but knew that I was super drawn to it.   Once I picked it up, I decided to sketch out my ideas and went through my pattern stash to see what I could come up with. For this project I used a vintage pattern See & Sew 5549.  It’s actually for a long sleep shirt that I then made some alterations to.  I lengthened the sleeves by an inch and extended the side slits up to the waistline because I knew that I would mostly be wearing this shirt open.  Also since I planned to wear it mostly open I only did

Made by a Fabricista: Use Those Views! Sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank

Spring is here! Honestly, I'm still bundled up in sweatshirts most of the time, but the afternoons are getting glorious and warm and just a t-shirt will suffice for a couple of hours in the warmth on some days so I know the overwhelming heat is not far off. I love planning and organizing in all facets of my life, and spring garments for my wardrobe are on my mind. Naturally tanks are at the forefront of my strategizing for comfort in hot weather and I wanted to branch out with a little something new.  Anyone else have patterns that they've been eyeing for ages but haven't pulled the trigger? Who knows why I've kept putting off sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank . I've long admired the simple lines and I'm absolutely sure it would fit into my overall style. I've even tried drafting something similar myself with varying degrees of success, but never quite on the nose. A simple tank can go with just about everything from jeans to skirts to a high-waisted a

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Style Essentials

Is there anything more versatile for your Spring wardrobe than a T-Shirt Dress and a classic button-up blouse? In this Fabric Mart Fabricista blog, I'm going to show you how these two little wardrobe staples can be rotated through your spring me-made wardrobe for 5 different and fun looks!  I was browsing the Fabric Mart website when this lovely 100% Cotton Parchment/Black Striped Jersey Knit Fabric popped up. I’ve been itching to make a T-Shirt dress with the Rebecca Page T-Shirt Dress pattern ever since the pattern launched back in February. As I continued to browse the Fabric Mart website, I was struck by the most lovely Blossom Pink Silk Shantung Shirting that I knew would be perfect for a Grainline Studios Archer Button-Up ! As the wheels started turning, I realized that the cotton jersey paired with the silk shantung shirting fabric would be a match made in heaven for my me-made wardrobe. So naturally, I had to get both fabrics plus the Archer Button-Up pattern! I was not d
