Sew Along Announcement!! Pamela's Patterns Pretty Peplum Top


Last year, we hosted a Reader’s Pick Sew Along, where we featured New Look 6097, a knit faux wrap dress. It was a lot fun and had about 12 participants. This year, I’m excited to announce that we will be hosting a sew along for Pamela’s Patterns Pretty Peplum Top! You will be sewing along with me as I create the peplum top and additional instructions on how to make it into a skater-style dress. Pamela will also be giving her expert advice along the way too! At the end of the sew along, we will have a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Fabric Mart AND a $30 gift certificate for Pamela’s Patterns! This will be a random drawing, so all you have to do is submit a photo of your finished top!

If you’re interested in participating, email us at fabricmartblog@gmail.com and let us know you will be participating! I'd like to get a head count before we actually get started. 

Then get your supplies together:

- Pattern – Pretty Peplum Top (pattern available on ourwebsite or on Pamela’s website.)
- Fabric - 2 1/4 yards of your favorite knit to work with. (We will have a post about selecting knits, but you can start picking out fabrics that you like.)
- Thread to match
- Stay Tape
- Basic sewing notions



The sew along will run through the month of February. The actual sewing time will only be about two weeks, but we will give you plenty of time to catch up and finish your garments before the due date to win prizes! Watch the blog for more details! This should be a lot of fun! I can’t wait to see everyone’s peplum tops!

  1. When I click the link to your website to buy it I get a message that it is unavailable. Will it be soon? I want to join in, but I need to know where to order it. I know I can from the pattern website, but I would ( of course! ) put in a fabric order along with the pattern if I can use FabricMart. (cheesy grin inserted here!)

Made by a Fabricista: Summer DIY Print Mixing

Hello Gems! It's still summer and it's a hot one! I'm not a shorts and t-shirts type of gal, as you all may know by now. That is, unless the occasion calls for it of course! I'm more of a casual chic, flirty two piece, with a little bohemian vibe on top type of gal! So you can find me beating the heat in these last days of summer in this cool and comfy backless tiered flounce sundress. Oh, and let's not forget the puff sleeves!  This whole vibe sums up the summer! And nothing says it better than zebra and tribal print! I coordinated the rayon rugged Tribal print crinkle challis with this rayon zebra print challis. These two prints look absolutely amazing together. They are both very drapey fluid fabrics that fair well as summer garments. They are breathable and feel so light and cool against the skin. Challis fabrics make great flounce and it's not too light weight that you have to line it. I absolutely adore both of these prints. Zebra print is one of those pr

Made by a Fabricista: Fast Sews and Cool Summer Fabrics

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm sharing a few things made with my favorite summer fabrics - cotton, linen and rayon - and as an added bonus these are all super quick sews. Each of these projects took me no more than 2-3 hours to sew. My house gets too hot to sew some summer days, so projects I can whip up quickly are great for that limited amount of time that I have.  The first two items I made up as a set, but of course they can also be worn as separates. The top is the I Am Patterns Gaia tank made with a stunningly gorgeous cotton challis. Call me naive but I had no idea cotton challis was even an option! I'd only ever seen challis in rayon. This cotton though is simply a dream to work with, and if you run across it I highly suggest snagging some. The top is a simple V-neck with a facing but what makes it special are the gathers at the shoulder, made by simply adding a bit of ribbon or fabric in a tube. The combination of this pattern with this light cotton fabric is the per

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Ain’t Over Yet

All of my fellow Fabricistas have been looking toward starting their fall wardrobes. But this year, I’m riding my summer vibes right until their official end in mid-September, because I’m doing something a little different: going on a beach vacation after Labor Day! Now is as good a time as any to tackle my first swimsuit, and I have to say, it was a great experience. And of course, I’d need a cover-up too. Fabric Mart had everything I needed to try my hand at a swim suit. I knew I wanted a bright, colorful patterned suit that was more likely to hide any construction flaws, so I picked this really fun nylon/lycra and it just screamed summer fun. Since I wasn’t sure which lining would work best, I ended up picking up the plain black swimsuit fabric to line with, since I read that you can line with swim fabric. It ended up being thicker than I imagined, but for me, I felt like this worked great because the recovery of the two fabrics together is excellent. The fabric is great quality. I
