We're Sponsoring a Contest on Pattern Review!

I'm sure most of your are familiar with Pattern Review. I am a big fan of Pattern Review for many reasons-- the customer pattern reviews, the classes, and especially the contests! They have at least one contest going on every month, usually sponsored by someone in the sewing industry. 


This month Fabric Mart is sponsoring The Wardrobe Contest. Contestants are to make 4 tops, 3 bottoms and 2 of garments of the sewist's choice. All items should coordinate together in some way. I'm really excited to see what all the sewist's create! 

We are offering a $100 gift certificate for First Place and $75 gift certificate for Second Place. 

Get sewing! The contest ends on May 15th!

Are you participating in The Wardrobe Contest?

  1. I would love to but I won the travel wardrobe contest last month! So I can't enter for 4 months. I think I will sew along anyway.

    1. Congrats to you for winning! I can't enter either since I wouldn't want to win a prize for the place I work! But it would be fun to sew on the sidelines too!

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: Papercut Patterns Stacker Jacket

Hello sewing friends! I'm truly delighted to join the wildly talented Fabricistas to share some of my sewing projects in 2021. Sewing has been very helpful for me with the lockdown happening; each project forces me to focus on something specific and completing each garment goal is highly satisfying. My wardrobe is definitely coming out of this whole era the most impressive it's ever been!  Lately I've been eyeing some lighter jacket patterns. Living in southern California means that real winter weather never arrives, but I tend to run cold anyway and love to layer up to stave off the shivering. I settled on the Stacker Jacket from Papercut Patterns. The boxier style means I can throw it on over another shirt layer (or two!) without feeling like I'm too constrained, and I like the more cropped look since I don't need too much heavy coverage for weather that will soon be warming up around here.  This was my first time using a paper pattern from an indie designer, and
