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!

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order:


This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first.
I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern.


The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.   I started…

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…
