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!

Do you see cute clothes in stores or online and think to yourself "I can make that!"? It happens to me often! I was a pretty big clothing shopper before I began sewing. And though I still buy clothes when I find a great deal, I usually end trying to recreate the outfit instead of buying. That is what happened with this jumpsuit. This black and white jumpsuit leaped out to me when I was scrolling through the gram. If you know me I love black and white, stripes and jumpsuits, so it's no surprise this was love at first sight.When I saw this Be Stripe Back Jumpsuit by Kiomios I immediately thought of McCalls 8047 as the overall shape is similar. I sewed the bottoms straight from the pattern. Yes, I could've added slant pockets like the inspiration photo, but I didn't want to add any bulk. I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…
