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: Comfy Palazoo Pants - Mommy and Me

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
