New Sewing Pattern Available at Fabric Mart!

I'm sure by now you have seen that Sewaholic Pattern's put out a new skirt pattern, the Gabriola Skirt. This awesome maxi skirt is not your average maxi skirt. It has piecing at the top, creating an a-line silhouette, rather than a boxy, plain maxi. Did you know that Fabric Mart has this pattern in stock?? Well now you do! Not only can you purchase the pattern, but you can browse our website for the perfect fabrics. Head on over to our website to purchase it now!



The pattern recommends light-medium weight wovens like challis, lawn, shirtings, cottons, silks and polyester crepes. I picked a few fabrics from our website that I thought would be excellent choices for this skirt. 


This challis would be the perfect weight and the zig-zag design is so popular right now! (CQD0521)

This peachskin Abstract Geometric would flow nicely, plus it has a cool design. (CQA9166)

Go basic with this corded weave shirting. Great color! (SPC1717)


I'm really excited about making the Gabriola Skirt, but it's on a long list of things to make. March is a big travel month for me, therefore less blogging and less sewing. I still have to finish the skinny pants from my Spring Project List. They are almost done. I'm just trying to get the right fit. Then I really wanted to participate in the Mad Men Challenge  so here's hoping I have time to get an idea and finish the project by April 1st! And lastly, we are in the planning stages of the Reader's Pick Sew Along, so that will begin in April. So I will probably not be making a Gabriola Skirt until late April or May. 

Be sure to give us your ideas for the Reader's Pick Sew Along! Learn more about it here, and comment!!

Made By A Fabricista: Speaking My Truth

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black . 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 hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black . 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 "

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
