  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: Summer Brunch looks just in time for Mother’s Day

Happy First Friday of May! I am truly excited that I have 22 more work days left before the summer break.  This school year has been a roller coaster ride and I have enjoyed some high moments and dealt with some low ones in between.  I wanted to start my summer looks early and decided to focus on looks I can wear when I visit Jamaica or other tropical places. These looks made are both great for Sunday brunch as well. This set is my first faux romper for this year and I love the fact that I can rock it as separates. When I came across this yellow graphite gray polyester fabric , I knew it was perfect for summer.  To top it off, I found the perfect matching earring from Purple Paradise Studio in lime (Rise stud in lime) and knew I wanted a chic summer faux romper set.  I decided to hack  McCalls 7943 dress pattern and create another top.  I have made it several times as I truly love it and plan to use this pattern as one of the beginner patterns for my summer sewing class. I have made it

Made By A Fabricista: The Summer Blues

People often speak of the “Winter Blues”, but today I bring you the “ Summer Blues ”, and it is all good news. Most people don’t think of blue as a summer color but personally for me any color is Summer ready depending on the style and fabric. The moment I seen this Polyester Lycra Diagonal Plaid Stripe Print DTY Knit (SYB8432) I knew I wanted to make something fun for the hot weather to come. I love the Navy/Black/Powder White mix of colors and prints all in one designed fabric. This DTY Knit is made up of 96% Polyester and 4% Lycra with a 4 Way Stretch. It has just the right amount of stretch but yet not too much to make it difficult to work with. If you used a pattern not calling for stretch fabric you definitely want to make adjustments when choosing your size.   With the different patterns in this fabric and made cutting it a breeze because I actually misjudged the amount of fabric, I needed but was able to cut the bodice in one direction and the skirt in another. That’s what I

Made By A Fabricista: Playing with Stripes

Have you ever made a garment that you concluded was a skill builder?  The pattern, the fabric, the technique all taught you something?  Well this post is all about the skills I learned or improved on with this dress.   First let’s start with the fabric.  We got stripes.  Stripes can be used in fun ways to create a lot of visual effects.  When I got this rayon challis from Fabric Mart I didn’t really know what exactly I was going to do with it.  I ran through a list of patterns I already had and none of them quite fit.  I knew going in I was going to have to match up the stripes at least on the sides of whatever I made but I did quite know what was in store for me with the pattern I ended up picking out.  Now let's get to the pattern. Deer and Doe is one of my favorite pattern companies.  They have nice classic silhouettes that I feel work well with my body and frame.  I wanted a new pattern though so I went on the hunt for what I thought would be a simple design.  Boy was I surpri
