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!

    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: Updating My Summer Wardrobe

Hello all!  I am back and excited to share my makes for the summer.   While looking for something to wear, given the heat and humidity, it became obvious quickly that there are two gaps in my summer wardrobe:  a sundress and a maxi dress with ruffles.  After all these years, I had neither one! From Instagram’s MeMadeMay discussions, true sundresses are lightweight sleeveless dresses that expose the shoulders, arms, possibly the back, and typically have straps. Before I retired, I was too busy to shop so any sleeveless dress was good enough.   Also, from social media, lightweight maxi dresses with tiered ruffles are on trend.  Looking back, I avoided these two styles of dresses because they reminded me of what little girls would wear. Now in my later years, I seek comfort above all else.  These dresses seemed they would keep me cool for the summer.   For the sundress, I liked the features of Vogue V1625 by designer Tracy Reese. It looked extraordinary with the cowl neck in the front, th

Made By A Fabricista: The Perfect Suit

One piece of clothing I have always had an issue buying is a bathing suit. The top never fits the bottom, the torso is always too short and the straps never hit in just the right spot. So when I find the perfect fitting bathing suit, it’s as if I hit the lottery. When I went on vacation last month, I found a great fitting suit from Amazon. The suit fit great but the fabric was a different story. All I kept thinking was “this suit would be in my top 2 if the fabric was better”. So then enters this perfect nylon/lycra hibiscus print I snagged from Fabric Mart online. It provides the perfect amount of stretch and comfort making it the best option for swimwear. I duplicated the pattern and fit and made it just a bit better with the fabric. Chandler’s suit was drafted. NIKKI   |  @ beautejadore Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!
