  1. I have watched this challenge unfold, marveling at both the remarkable talents of the participants and at the extraordinary investment of time and money they have made in your promotion. I kept anticipating that the grand prizes that awaited these women would respectfully acknowledge that investment, but I am disappointed to see that they do not, in my opinion, do so.

  2. We appreciate each and every one of our viewers out there watching the contest unfold and supporting all competing. Being that this was the first time we had a contest to this length, we learned a lot, and learned it along the way. We are grateful to have 10 contestants (and I'm sure it could have been more!) take time out of their regular sewing lives to compete in a fun challenge. I'm sure our winners will be grateful for the prizes they have received. Being a small business we can only offer so much without asking for sponsors from other companies. We felt as though this was more than enough for someone to receive. Thanks for your input and if we decide to do another competition will take not only yours, but other comments and suggestions into consideration.

Made By A Fabricista: Peach Skin Penny Dress

Have you ever lost your sewjo, or just taken a long break from sewing after a really hard project? After spending months altering a wedding dress, I just needed a bit of a break from sewing. Alterations are not my cup of tea, so I treated myself to a well-deserved few weeks off. After my sewing hiatus, I was ready to jump back in with a new sewing pattern I hadn't made before. The Sew Over It Penny Dress has been on my "have to make" list for a long time so it seemed like the perfect pattern to help me ease back into my usual sewing routine.  After browsing the Fabric Mart website for the perfect fabric for my Penny Dress, I noticed this beautiful black, shadow blue, and off-white floral peach skin fabric. If you haven't worked with or worn peach skin fabric, you need to get some right away! It is the softest, most delightful fabric ever! It's lightweight and has a beautiful drape, but isn't see-thru! In addition to my peach skin fabric, I also ordered some el

Made By A Fabricista: Shirt dresses are for Summer!

Hey boo!  I hope you are having a great spring/summer.  It was really hot here in Ohio this past week and finally cooled down!  The heat wave is returning though so I had to take advantage of this beautiful weather while it lasts.  I’ve been focused on summer attire and if you don’t know already whose patterns stay at the top of the list for me is, then I will tell you.  The one and only, Mimi G.  I love her style and her patterns always have a great fit!  She always comes out with something new and unique and her summer patterns are just that!   March of this year, I went from working at home as a contractor for L Brands to now an Executive Assistant for a school organization.  That’s all I will say. I don’t need anyone popping up at my job! Lol.  I went from being at home for two years wearing whatever I wanted (usually sweats and or my nightgown) and my hair in a messy bun, to working full-time again in an office.  My office is business professional, so I wanted to make some things

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Vacation Looks

Happy First Friday of the month! It’s officially 3 weeks since I have been off for summer break and I am enjoying every single minute. Even though I am working part time this summer, I still have a bit more time to sew. I was a bit uninspired right after the break but got a burst of sewing energy last week and decided to sew a few pieces. I have been wanting to create a jumpsuit since early Spring and finally decided on a pattern. I have had McCalls 7755 (now M8069) in my stash for quite a while but hated the neckline with the casing. I had an epiphany and decided to use the same neckline method for the top I made in my last post here . The bodice part of the jumpsuit is exactly the same cut and I knew it would work. I should have removed about an inch more from the top but definitely plan to make the adjustments next time around. Additionally I should have gathered it just like the dress but opted to gather the front at 8 inches instead of 7 inches and 4 inches on each side in the bac
