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: Comfy Palazoo Pants - Mommy and Me

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
