And the Winner is....

We've made it to the end of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge! This year's challenge was a lot of fun and the ladies had such talent. I wish everyone could have won! I want to thank each one of our contestants for putting themselves out there in the sewing skills being challenged for a month and a half. (That is probably one of the biggest challenges!) 

Also a big thank you to all of our guest judges. They gave our contestants a lot of suggestions and praises. I bet if you asked any of them, the biggest challenge for them was picking the winner and who would be sent home!


Without further ado, let's see who our winner is....

Made by a Fabricista: For the Love of Flowy Dresses!

Hello Gems! I am so excited to share with you my first look as a Fabric Mart Fabricista! This season I have been so inspired by floor length dresses and flowy frocks so when I ran across this beautiful Pink Purple & Green Double Georgette, I knew it would make the perfect midi dress. (You can find the fabric  HERE  if it's still available!) First let me just start by saying, when I received this fabric I was elated. The colors are even more spectacular in person than online. This is a double georgette fabric so it is sheer but not transparent. It's lightweight and very drapey! With enough volume from gathers or ruffles, you could create a gorgeous frock possibly without any lining. If you are looking to create something a little more fitted I would definitely suggest going with a lining. However, this fabric is great for the Spring and Fall seasons and even with a little layering you can get away with wearing it in the winter, especially if your Winters aren’t too cold.  Fo

Made by a Fabricista: Frozen for Fashion

However, my winter sewing got away from me and so instead of being behind, I want to get ahead with some spring makes. Since this is my first post as a Fabricista, I got a little ambitious and wanted to hit a bunch of 2021 trends: Pantone colors of the year, pastels, and the trench. With these points in mind, I scoured the Fabric Mart website and thanks to their amazing variety, found exactly what I was looking for. These makes felt a little odd to plan in February, but once they were done, I started to get giddy for it to start warming up here in the Midwest. Which will probably be in May. Also importantly, February is Black History Month, so I wanted to make with a Black designer’s pattern. The Black sewing community has been so crucial to my development as a sewist--they are a constant source of inspiration, joy, and help--and I wanted to highlight one designer’s work with this
