The Results are in...

The results are in for the Reader's Pick Sew-Along! And the winner is....

New Look 6097!





It was neck and neck between New Look 6097 (dress) and McCall 5894 (pants.) I have to admit I started to think about what fabrics I would like to use for the pants, but when the dress was chosen, I had to change my course! 

If you don't have the pattern, place an order on the New Look website or head over to your local New Look retailer. We will begin sewing on April 7th. That will give you two weeks to get your pattern and fabric. It is not required to use Fabric Mart fabric, but if you want to, get your orders in ASAP to ensure you receive your fabric before April 7th! I will be doing a post on fabric choices tomorrow, so if you're unsure as to what fabric to use, I will help you tomorrow! I'm heading out right now to purchase a copy of New Look 6097.

I can't wait to get started. Will you be joining? Comment below if you plan on joining in the fun!

  11. Peer pressure is a terrible thing. If I already had the pattern I would follow, but i have too many other projects with deadlines in the next few weeks. I'll be watching, though!

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 "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…
