Fashion Challenge 3: Contestants Have Been Selected!

It's the moment you've all be waiting for...announcement of the Fashion Challenge contestants! We had 20 people submit applications to the fashion challenge. And to only pick six people was so HARD! We took a look at their work, their blogs and why they felt they would be a good candidate for the challenge. After about 2 days of reviewing we finally came to an agreement and here they are! (in alphabetical order)





Dawn from Two On, Two Off






Elizabeth from I Sew, You Sew



Kristin from Sunny Sewing



Tiffany from Frougie Fashionista



The Fashion Challenge will begin on September 11, so mark your calendars! I'm really excited to see what these sewers come up with for each challenge. It's always mind blowing!!

Don't forget, you can participate too! Share your finished creation on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) using #fabricistafashionchallengereader. We'll post your photo on the blog to share with everyone else. We will choose one winner each week to win a prize! (Only open to citizens of the US and Canada for shipping purposes.)

See you in September!

Made by a Fabricista: All about the seams.

Did you think I was done with chartreuse? Well...I'm not! I decided to add another level of gray and chartreuse to the suit I made back in December (see here).


As soon as I saw this wool and cashmere double faced coating by Michael Kors I knew I had to have it. It was offered in several color combos, but quite a few are sold out. Check out the available colors and all the other amazing coating fabrics here. When it arrived I was blown away, not just by the colors (which I already knew I loved), but by the softness of the brushed finish. It's divine!


Since this wool is double faced I knew I had to make something that would show both sides. I initially thought of a belted cape, like McCalls 6209, but ultimately decided on Butterick 6244. Not only does the waterfall collar show both sides, but thanks to the flat felled seams it is also reversible.


It you haven't sewn flat felled seams it's surprisingly simple, if a bit time consuming. I will note that it is a bit trickie…

Made by a Fabricista: A Spring Jumpsuit

Happy Saturday Loves!
Have you ever fell in love with a pattern and made it 3 times? I have only found a handful of patterns that are truly a great fit directly from the pattern envelope without having to make a significant amount of modifications. This is true for McCall's M8009, a jumpsuit pattern.
The minute I saw the bodice of the pattern,  it reminded me so much of a dress I saved on Pinterest years ago. I have been waiting to make the dress for years but fear got the best of me not wanting to draft or modify a pattern from scratch.
When McCall's released M8009 last year,  I knew it was a must make. I made it first in a rayon from my stash and did not stop the night until most of it was done after falling in love with the fit of the bodice. The size 12 grading the midriff section to the 14 waist fits perfectly from the pattern envelope.  For the pants, the size 14 with a few of my regular crotch pants adjustments were made as well as lengthening the pattern by 4.5 inches.
Whe…
