Sixth Challenge Announced!

Fabric of OUR Choice
Surprise!
A box of beautiful fabric just showed up at your door and you need to make something to wear this weekend! For this challenge, we are going to send each designer material for the next challenge.
But they do not know what they will be getting!
Unlike the Bundle Challenge, the designers will be working with the same fabric.

5 Seamstresses will compete in this challenge.
You will have one week to complete this challenge.
Challenge: Using the fabric we have selected for you, challenge yourself by making a unique garment and working with a material you may not have used before to create one well-made garment. You can use a pattern of you choice to construct your garment. 
You will be judged on creativity, functionality, craftsmanship, and fit. 
The winner will receive (3) Patterns on YOUR Choice from fabricmartfabrics.com

  3. Hi Sylvia,

    This challenge is only open to the last few contestants that were selected to be in the challenge. It is not an open challenge. Although doing an open challenge someday sound like an interesting idea...will have to give that some thought!

She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.

You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.
