And the winner of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge is...

The votes are in and we have a winner in the Fabricista Fashion Challenge! This was SOOOOOO hard. I wish I could have all of them! Congratulations to....Elizabeth from I Sew, You Sew!

Elizabeth is the winner of $25 a month for one year to spend on fabric, plus be a Fabric Mart Fabricista for 6 months writing guest posts for the blog. (A $300 value with media exposure.) She will also receive a Julie's Picks Membership.


Tiffany is second place and wins a $100 gift certificate and a Julie's Picks membership. Kristen is third place and wins a $50 gift certificate and a Julie's Picks membership. Tiffany and Kristen did an amazing job as well and it was so hard to make final decisions! Don't worry, I don't think this will be the last you see of these ladies. I'm working on the blog schedule and hope to have some newcomers lined up for the new year. If you would like to consider blogging with us occasionally, please email me at fabricmartblog@gmail.com for more information. We'd love to have you! 

Thanks goes out to all the contestants that participated in the third year of the Fashion Challenge. I always look forward to doing this and being inspired by everyone. 

Thanks to all the "celebrity judges" for helping to judge all of these talented ladies projects. It is a TOUGH job!

Thanks to all the readers for participating at home and for all that watched from the sidelines. We do this for you and we're so glad you enjoy it. 


And speaking of our readers...we need to select a winner in the Reader Participation section of the blog: Congratulations to Nikkee H! She wins a notion prize pack! She also included a little information about the projects. 


~My hardly worn item was a simple blue v neck tshirt. I don't really own much in the blue color family, besides a pair of jeans which I felt made me too blue.


So I whipped up a pair of black slacks, self drafted, whether with this shirt or not these pants will see a lot of wear. They are comfortable and I like how they look.


The second item I made was a sweater. I made this one with an extremely modified mccalls pattern. I didn't initially plan this top for this sew along, but it was made fully in the time frame. 



@deb1meineke also submitted a rust colored vest --

  5. Congrats to all the winners. This was an exciting contest to watch. I've just been caught up in some unexpected life's tragedies and lost track of the contest. Is the Reader Participation part of the contest open to all, even if you're not a blogger?

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Sweater Knit

Hello Sewing Friends!  I hope all of you are safe, healthy, and feeling good about life in general.  These are crazy times we are living in!  
As I was debating what to make for my July blog post, I ran across a few garments made from lightweight sweater knits and decided to look through FMs selection.  I found this gorgeous black, white, and gray floral that I made my dress out of.  


It appears to be sold out right now, but here are some other great choices. Sweater knits  I like checking on FMs site on a frequent basis as their selection is updated often. 

I always seem to have my eyes closed in at least one photo!
For this post, however, I knew I wanted a summer, yet trans-seasonal garment since this fabric is just so lovely, soft, and I am such a sucker for floral prints that I wanted to wear this as much as possible.  Do you ever come across fabric and feel the same way?  


I didn't have to do anything special or out of the ordinary with this fabric.  I treated it just as any…

Made by a Fabricista: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…
