Reader's Pick Sew-Along: Finishing Up

Hey everyone! I'm not going to waste everyone's time with the last couple of steps, they are simple enough and I don't have any enlightening suggestions to share with you!

So put a hem in your dress, made the belt and any other last finishing touches!

I will be posting my finished dress as soon as my husband's hockey game is over, so he can take some photos!



When you are finished with your dress, please email me a photo of the finished product. I will post everyone's dress on the blog! You can also post it on Flickr, but I will not be counting any photos from Flickr into the drawing for the $50 gift certificate. Feel free to blog about it too! I will link your photo to your blog, if you have one.

To enter the random drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Fabric Mart, email me (Fabricmartblog (a) gmail.com) a photo of your finished garment by Wednesday, May 7th. I will post everyone's finished dresses, then at random select a winner. To be considered, your dress must have been made during the sew along.

So get moving if you are behind! And if you didn't have a moment to sew along with me, feel free to do so now! I'll post some photos tomorrow of my finished dress!

  1. I've been sewing up a storm today now that our company has left. I'll be finished maybe tonight, certainly tomorrow and post pics and send the picture to you.

  2. Looking forward to seeing it Angela! I'm hoping to finish mine in the next couple days, though I've got another big project this week as well. And I haven't managed to find a belt buckle that I like, anyone have a good online place with a nice selection?

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Sweater Knit

Hello Sewing Friends!  I hope all of you are safe, healthy, and feeling good about life in general.  These are crazy times we are living in!  
As I was debating what to make for my July blog post, I ran across a few garments made from lightweight sweater knits and decided to look through FMs selection.  I found this gorgeous black, white, and gray floral that I made my dress out of.  


It appears to be sold out right now, but here are some other great choices. Sweater knits  I like checking on FMs site on a frequent basis as their selection is updated often. 

I always seem to have my eyes closed in at least one photo!
For this post, however, I knew I wanted a summer, yet trans-seasonal garment since this fabric is just so lovely, soft, and I am such a sucker for floral prints that I wanted to wear this as much as possible.  Do you ever come across fabric and feel the same way?  


I didn't have to do anything special or out of the ordinary with this fabric.  I treated it just as any…

Made by a Fabricista: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…
