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...

Dara M. is the winner of a $50 gift certificate to Fabric Mart! Congratuations, Dara! Check your email for confirmation.

  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.

  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!

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
