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

  1. Looking forward to seeing the results of this challenge. All along this venture, I've been thinking that the playing field isn't level !! It will really be interesting to see completed garments this time. The sewists are fabulous and I appreciate their talents...

  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!

My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application.

She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!



Have you ever used a Burda Style pattern magazine?  I used to always subscribe the Burda Plus magazine which is for larger sizes, but they stopped making it in English and I stopped my subscription.  I missed it so much, that I took a chance and ordered it in French directly from France on burdastyle.fr.  It wasn't expensive- about $15 total including the po…
