  1. Personally I think this pattern (as presented) would only work for a young woman with a young girl figure. That said I am anxious to see how the mature women contestants adapt and create their garments as this will surely be a challenge!

    1. We choose this pattern as a challenge. We want to see how the older women make this piece more mature and how they alter it to fit them. It was not meant to be easy!

  2. wow that is going to be quite a challenge. The ladies are all different shapes and sizes and this style really won't work on all of them as is. I look forward to seeing how the clever sewists adapt this pattern/style to work for them. some larger ladies may find this one harder to pull off than those who can wear a waisted style which has a definite 'young' look to it.

  3. I think this contest challenge is a great idea, however this dress pattern for challenge #2 is a poor choice IMHO. The dress is geared for a young woman or girl not a mature woman. I am only glad that you have the wisdom to allow for contestants to change/alter the pattern as presented. I'm anxious to see what these talented woman produce.

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: Jungle fun!

 Animal prints are e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e!  So much so, that my hubby noticed and commented.  :)  Not one to try and be left out, I drooled over this cute print!  It appears to be sold out, so here are some fun choices!  Animal prints I have been wearing so many light layers lately since the weather can't decide what it wants to do this time of year.  I knew I wanted a cardigan and to make a sort of 'modern' twin set sort of look, I grabbed enough to make a top I could wear underneath or by itself.   I love how textured this knit is! Let me show you, and tell you what I did to accommodate a textured knit fabric.   Here is a photo of the back.  You can see what the back looks like to imagine what the texture looks like on the front. Don't let ridges scare you!  They are easy to sew.  Here's what I did. Use a lot of pins or clips.  Personally, I love the clips.  They fasten easily and unclip easily.     Sew a few inches, lift the presser foot, and repeat.  Sometimes the
