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: Inspired by Athleisure

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…

Made by a Fabricista: A Versatile Cotton 2 Piece Set!

Happy Saturday LOVES! I am finally feeling less overwhelmed and adjusting to this distance teaching.  I am back in full swing for the new 2020-2021 academic school year and even though we encountered challenges the first week, I am happy to have survived the first 3 weeks.  As we plan to transition to brick and mortar (in person) in a few weeks, I am praying that our students and teachers remain safe. 2020 year has allowed  me to learn, reflect, grow and overcome many fears and challenges and be open to change. This month’s make had me in deep reflection about my sewing journey and how much I have grown over the past 3 years.  I am no longer scared of taking risks, speaking my truth and being my authentic self.  If you have been reading my blog posts for a while, I am pretty sure you have seen the growth as well.  Fabricmart has allowed me each month to remain consistent in my journey and next month I celebrate my 3 year blog anniversary with Fabricmart.   Now let’s get into this set!  I…
