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: 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

Made by a Fabricista: Use Those Views! Sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank

Spring is here! Honestly, I'm still bundled up in sweatshirts most of the time, but the afternoons are getting glorious and warm and just a t-shirt will suffice for a couple of hours in the warmth on some days so I know the overwhelming heat is not far off. I love planning and organizing in all facets of my life, and spring garments for my wardrobe are on my mind. Naturally tanks are at the forefront of my strategizing for comfort in hot weather and I wanted to branch out with a little something new.  Anyone else have patterns that they've been eyeing for ages but haven't pulled the trigger? Who knows why I've kept putting off sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank . I've long admired the simple lines and I'm absolutely sure it would fit into my overall style. I've even tried drafting something similar myself with varying degrees of success, but never quite on the nose. A simple tank can go with just about everything from jeans to skirts to a high-waisted a

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Style Essentials

Is there anything more versatile for your Spring wardrobe than a T-Shirt Dress and a classic button-up blouse? In this Fabric Mart Fabricista blog, I'm going to show you how these two little wardrobe staples can be rotated through your spring me-made wardrobe for 5 different and fun looks!  I was browsing the Fabric Mart website when this lovely 100% Cotton Parchment/Black Striped Jersey Knit Fabric popped up. I’ve been itching to make a T-Shirt dress with the Rebecca Page T-Shirt Dress pattern ever since the pattern launched back in February. As I continued to browse the Fabric Mart website, I was struck by the most lovely Blossom Pink Silk Shantung Shirting that I knew would be perfect for a Grainline Studios Archer Button-Up ! As the wheels started turning, I realized that the cotton jersey paired with the silk shantung shirting fabric would be a match made in heaven for my me-made wardrobe. So naturally, I had to get both fabrics plus the Archer Button-Up pattern! I was not d
