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 know some of you out there love a challenge, but maybe you thought the Fashion Challenge wouldn't fit into your busy life or maybe you felt you weren't "good enough". 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.

So let's find out who has been chosen for the Fabricista Fashion Challenge 2! (In alphabetical order.)

Made by a Fabricista: All about the seams.

Did you think I was done with chartreuse? Well...I'm not! I decided to add another level of gray and chartreuse to the suit I made back in December (see here).


As soon as I saw this wool and cashmere double faced coating by Michael Kors I knew I had to have it. It was offered in several color combos, but quite a few are sold out. Check out the available colors and all the other amazing coating fabrics here. When it arrived I was blown away, not just by the colors (which I already knew I loved), but by the softness of the brushed finish. It's divine!


Since this wool is double faced I knew I had to make something that would show both sides. I initially thought of a belted cape, like McCalls 6209, but ultimately decided on Butterick 6244. Not only does the waterfall collar show both sides, but thanks to the flat felled seams it is also reversible.


It you haven't sewn flat felled seams it's surprisingly simple, if a bit time consuming. I will note that it is a bit trickie…

Made by a Fabricista: A Spring Jumpsuit

Happy Saturday Loves!
Have you ever fell in love with a pattern and made it 3 times? I have only found a handful of patterns that are truly a great fit directly from the pattern envelope without having to make a significant amount of modifications. This is true for McCall's M8009, a jumpsuit pattern.
The minute I saw the bodice of the pattern,  it reminded me so much of a dress I saved on Pinterest years ago. I have been waiting to make the dress for years but fear got the best of me not wanting to draft or modify a pattern from scratch.
When McCall's released M8009 last year,  I knew it was a must make. I made it first in a rayon from my stash and did not stop the night until most of it was done after falling in love with the fit of the bodice. The size 12 grading the midriff section to the 14 waist fits perfectly from the pattern envelope.  For the pants, the size 14 with a few of my regular crotch pants adjustments were made as well as lengthening the pattern by 4.5 inches.
Whe…
