Fashion Challenge 2: Contestants Have Been Selected!!

Our 8 contestants have been selected! Wow we had a great response from some talented sewers, I just wish I could have chosen them all! We will begin the Fabricista Fashion Challenge on Friday, September 5th. On that day, all contestants will have the first challenge in their inboxes and it will also be posted on the blog!

I'm giving all of our viewers a chance to participate with the contestants! Although you will not be in the main competition, you can post photos of your projects on our Flickr page.

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Dreaming

 Summer Dreaming | A Tropical Faux Jumpsuit and Sheer Ruffled Duster I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring with its promise of warmer temps and lots of sunshine.  Anyone else? With that in mind, I choose to showcase two of the fabulous shirting fabrics offered by Fabric Mart Fabrics. The combination of the semi-sheer shirting with the tropical print shirting has me dreaming of walking along a beach with the waves gently lapping against the shoreline and the sun shining brightly down on me. The coral shirting is a beautiful piece of fabric with its hint of shimmer and tiny stripes alternating between opaque and sheer.  I choose to sew a tiered maxi-length button front dress using Simplicity 9114.  Because of the semi-sheer nature of the fabric, I will wear this as a duster. If you’ve shied away from sewing sheers for fear of the difficulties you may face, this type of fabric is the perfect way to start!  Because it is a cotton/nylon blend it was easier to sew than a silky chiffon

Made by a Fabricista: Celebrating My Birthday In Style

 Hello everyone! I am absolutely thrilled to share with you what I sewed to celebrate my birthday.   After social distancing the last few months in athleisure wear and old house clothes, I wanted to wear something much different for my birthday at the end of February.  I wanted a floaty drapey maxi dress!  When I came across V9168 by designer Kathryn Brenne in my pattern stash, I knew this was the look of my dream dress.  I could twirl around in the full circle skirt as if on air with no cares in the world and enjoy my special day.  And if I had the opportunity to join a Casino Night or Great Gatsby Party or Mardi Gras, all of which are usually held around my birthday, the slip can double as my party dress!  I love slip dresses.  They are so sexy and fun to dress up or down for the occasion.  Fortunately Fabric Mart was running a sale on polyester georgettes , a fabric recommended by the pattern, and there was one in cobalt blue color. I love that color!  Because georgettes are sheer,

Made by a Fabricista: Coming Up Roses

 From vision to reality. As we are headed into April, I can feel the spring breeze on the horizon and with that means fun time outside, be it eating brunch with friends on a terrace or going to the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to add some bright fun color into my spring wardrobe that I really haven't used and over a year.  I had been eyeing this beautiful red stripe shirting with blue roses fabric for a while not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it but knew that I was super drawn to it.   Once I picked it up, I decided to sketch out my ideas and went through my pattern stash to see what I could come up with. For this project I used a vintage pattern See & Sew 5549.  It’s actually for a long sleep shirt that I then made some alterations to.  I lengthened the sleeves by an inch and extended the side slits up to the waistline because I knew that I would mostly be wearing this shirt open.  Also since I planned to wear it mostly open I only did
