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: Two Luxury Linen Dresses to Transition from Summer to Fall

Hello Sewing Friends! I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista projects with you all, as these dresses were so nice to sew up. And they are just perfect for this time of year as summer transitions in to Fall here in the Midwest.   I chose 2 gorgeous linen fabrics to work with this month. I have to say, these are two of the loveliest linen fabrics I have ever worked with in my decades of sewing. These 100% Italian Linen fabrics are so unique and just an amazing quality.    The pattern I chose was one that I picked up during a Fabric Mart Fabrics pattern sale. I don’t sew a lot with Indie patterns and so when I saw the sale, I took advantage and stocked up so I could try out a few brands. This Wildwood Wrap Dress from Sew House Seven pattern company has been on my to-sew list for months and I knew these linen fabrics would be perfect for the design.  I started out with this gorgeous solid linen as my wearable muslin. Since it was a new to me pattern company, I knew I needed to test t

Made By A Fabricista: Silky Prints for a Tropical Vacation

Hello again!   I want to share with you my latest project using silky prints. My family had been planning to go to the Virgin Islands for a vacation. For this trip I wanted loose-fitting outfits. When the summer Vogue patterns were released, I fell in love with the vintage Vogue V1886 caftan. It is ankle length and the sleeves fell elegantly to the hemline, hitting the arm slightly above the elbows. It has a scooped back, which would make it comfortable in hot weather. There are side panels, but no seams. I could wear this relaxing under an umbrella during the day or for an evening stroll to enjoy the breeze on the beach. FM’s polyester lightweight charmeuse silky prints caught my eye. Even though I swore I would never again sew slippery fabrics, the coastal mountain print on the fabric (SKU UQA7666r) was hard to resist.  The moonstone blue/berry pink/medium blue/taupe were cool relaxing colors. While looking at the first fabric, I saw another silky print (SKU UQA7667r) that was ha

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Hannah - Full Bust Adjustment

When I first started sewing I quickly realized the size I was cutting out in shirts and dresses wasn’t fitting my shoulders.  Why you may ask? I was only measuring according to my bust measurement which made my tops too big in the shoulders. After some research and asking in Facebook groups I learned I needed to do a Full Bust Adjustment on all of my patterns.  I watched tons of videos and read books on how to do a FBA and I found one way that continues to be my favorite way to this fit adjustment.  The pivot and slide method has become my go to for every FBA I do.  In this video I walk you through the steps to help you get the right fit for your bust area. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions, I am here to help you on your sewing/fitting journey!  HANNAH    |  @modistra.sews Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!
