Reader's Pick Sew-Along: The BIG Reveal!!

I am so impressed by the number of people that have participated in the sew-along for New Look 6097. For our first sew-along together-- I'm so happy! Everyone seemed to really enjoy this and hopefully we can continue doing other sew-alongs. If you're just coming into this, you can learn more about the sew-along HERE.


All of these ladies are so talented! We hashed out some ideas on our Flickr Discussion Board and in comments on the blog. I think we all had fun trying to hash out our problems and suggestions. 

Plus, all participants were entered in a random drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Fabric Mart. And the winner is...

  1. It was fun, I wish I had been able to keep up with it as it went along better, but the next one I think I will. I enjoyed working with knits for the first time, and finding knit interfacing (which I didn't know existed). I have always sewn on silky dress fabrics. I guess for another sew along, I would still like to do a dress again, they are my favorites.

  2. Wow! These dresses look really, really good! What a great pattern.

  3. Congratulations Dara! :)

    I would love to do another sew along! As far as what, I'm game for about anything that isn't too complicated. While I'm not a beginner learning to read a pattern, I'm not ready for a tailored jacket quite yet LOL! Getting to vote from a selection of a few patterns worked well. I'll need to think about what to suggest.

  5. Thank you for featuring me. :) I had such a blast sewing along.

    LOVE the other versions, and my next one will be inspired by the ones I see above.

    BTW, I received that fabric that Missy used in my last fabric bundle. I love the fabric as a dress, so pretty. I think I may go sleepwear but only because that fabric is so SO soft!

    I would love to do a swimsuit sewalong, but that is because I want to sew one up for the pool this summer.

    But maybe a swim coverup would be a good project or a great pair of shorts?

    1. I too have a swimsuit on my list of possible sew-ups. I'm just not sure where to start. I bought a great swimsuit fabric on a trip to Miami in January. Now I have to put my mind to it! I'm thinking of constructing it based off of a swimsuit I have that I really like, but the fabric is wearing out. We'll see!

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…
