Fan Feature: Peggy from Deconstruct, Alter, and Create.

She came to visit us!
Meet Peggy, she is one of our first blog followers and a great customer.
Read about her visit to see us!
Peggy's creativeness to transform fabrics into unique, yet wonderful clothing ceases to amaze me.
We asked Peggy to be featured on our blog because she was trying different things and having fun.
We picked two of her posts that I thought best represented her blog to show you.
Look at the top she made out of Julie's Pick samples!
We love how she was inspired by this dress and recreated it. It was especially enjoyable to see that she didn't just blog about the final product, she showed her trials and errors each step of the way until she successfully completed the project. Check out each step in this recreation! It took her a few attempts and some perfectionism, but it looks great!
A great reconstruction!

Her second inspiring post was about reconstructing old clothing into a new piece. She used her resources to piece together a brand new shirt. How creative! 
It is great to see someone take a fresh approach on fashion and not be afraid to try think outside of the box.
Visit Peggy's blog to see more of her great projects. We hope you come visit us again soon!

They are all different and have some great stuff they've made from FabricMart fabrics. Looking forward to another FM trip soon! peg

Made by a Fabricista: Brushed Wool/Cashmere Car Coat

  I've been eyeing the Michael Kors Wool Blend Coatings for some time now.  Fabric Mart had the most gorgeous array of coating colors that I have ever seen!  During COVID stay at home time, I've been letting my gray grow out, and I thought that even though those gorgeous sherbet shades like apricot and apple green would be beautiful, the heathered gray shade would be the most flattering to my gray hair and the most versatile.  Apparently, others thought the same, as the gray is sold out now, but there are still many colors available here:  Coating Category   When I received my fabric, I was just astonished at how soft it was and what a beautiful drape it had.  I searched and searched for the perfect pattern- changing my mind at least a dozen times before I settled on Simplicity 3672.   This is one of the few patterns that only was available in sizes 18-24, and not in smaller sizes.  It is about 10 years old, but there are definitely copies available on the internet.

Made by a Fabricista: Hello Fall

My sewjo has definitely been lacking due to trying to shelter in place. Back in March when we started working/schooling from home my sewjo had a little spike as initially felt like I had a bit of extra time in my day. Sadly, it didn't take too long to lose that extra hour I'd gained due to not commuting. Add to that the fact there's no where to go so when would I wear these makes. Lastly I, like many, have gained weight the last few months (that's not totally Covids fault) and sometimes I hate sewing for a size I'm not so happy with.  Picking up skating helped a bit because I could sew and wear new makes to social distance skate events, but what really kicked me back into high gear was the arrival of fall. Usually summer is my favorite season to sew for, but during this time of staying home cozy loungewear and comfy separates are really speaking to me. So when I was looking for fabrics this month I selected three double knits to make some easy to wear fall looks.  T
