Fashion Challenge #3 - Inspired by Ready-to-Wear -- What They Made!!

We're in the 3rd week of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge! In this week's challenge, contestants were asked to create a new garment based off of a RTW garment in their wardrobe. They were also asked to blog about the process on their own blogs. This way they can explain about it in as much length as they would like and were also able to put as many photos in it as they would like! Scroll through the submissions and vote for your favorite! (Voting link is at the bottom of this blog post.) Be sure to click on each contestant's blog link to read about their process in making a new garment from a RTW garment. 


This week's challenge will be judged my myself (Julie) and Dana Bontrager from Dana Marie Designs! Dana has her own line of fashion patterns. I interviewed her back in June. Read the interview here.
Winner of this challenge will receive a Free Knit Bundle and three free patterns of their choice from the Fabric Mart Pattern collection.
Reader Participation!  Don't for…

3rd Challenge: Inspired by Ready-to-Wear
Everyone has a favorite garment in their wardrobe. Even if you are a home sewer, nine chances out of ten this favorite garment is not made by you (but maybe it is!) Every time I sew, I try to make each garment my favorite thing to wear, but it just doesn't always work that way. So whether …

Fashion Challenge #2 - It's All About the Fit -- What They Made!!

Wait till you see what these ladies created for the All About Fit Challenge! I think most of you can agree that fit is one of the hardest things about sewing. These ladies did an amazing job creating well fitted garments. Some contestants went for a more casual look while others went for an evening look. Take a look at everyone's finished garment and vote for who you think created the best well fitting garment. You have until Friday morning at 3am (eastern time) to cast your vote!
This week's challenge will be judged my myself (Julie) and Pamela Leggett from Pamela's Patterns. Pamela is a fit expert and will be giving each contestant feedback on their garments. Thank you, Pamela, for your help in the judging process!
Winner of this challenge will receive THREE FREE patterns from Pamela's Patterns.
