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!
