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: Bold Beautiful Crepe Spring Look

Hello Gems! I'm so excited it’s finally Spring time! I've been inspired by color lately. It could be the beautiful flowers in bloom or the bright sunny days we’ve been having! Whatever it is, it has illuminated my creative senses and I’ve been feeling so inspired. So I just have to share with you my most recent make as a Fabricista with Fabric Mart using this bold red-orange and purple Crepe de Chine.  The fabric is a very fluid and drapey crepe fabric.  I’ve also noticed wide leg pants hitting the scene for Spring and I thought this crepe would make a great pair of wide leg pants. It’s a medium weight, opaque and falls so nicely against the skin.  The print is a leopard print with a pin stripe detail. In this red-orange and purple color combo this is a very bold and playful print but can still make for a sophisticated look so I wanted to give you a little bit of both of those aspects in the actual look. I'm not much for a jumpsuit but I love the fact that this two piece al

Made by a Fabricista: The Perfect Vacation Dress

You ever make one of those dresses you can’t wait to wear? Well this is the one. I’m prepping for an upcoming very overdue vacation and I wanted to make clothes that were cute, comfortable and functional.  This dress hit every mark for me and it’s all thanks to this stretch satin twill !   There aren’t enough words to describe this fabric and how much I love it.  When shopping for fabric online you have to look at composition and hope it’s true to form.  I have yet to be disappointed! This fabric has a bit of stretch which wasn’t needed for this dress but just made it even more comfortable.  It sews beautifully and moves with a bounce that’s perfect for this style. I made this dress using Vogue V1558 with lots of pattern alterations.   -Removed the seam from the front bodice by folding the bodice front pattern under 1.5” where the seam should be.  -Faced the neck back -Changed the style of the pleats -Added a back zipper -Added 10.5” to the width of the sleeve and remove 7” from the le

Made by a Fabricista: My first Summer dress for 2021, Axis Dress

Happy Friday, everyone! I am super excited to share about my Axis Dress by Papercut Patterns today. This dress was love at first sight! For me, longer skirt lengths of dresses and skirts are challenging since I am petite (5’ 1”), but this dress was so pretty that I had to make it. Now, let's talk about the fabric. I have been eyeing this Chambray Linen fabric for a while. Just seeing from a picture of it on their website, I knew that it is a high-quality fabric! I think they do a great job showcasing their fabric by putting multiple views. I think that is one of the reasons why I keep clicking “Add to cart” almost every time I go to their website, lol.  I debated between the grape and this orchid pink , but I am very happy that I chose orchid pink. Pink is one of my favorite colors, and I love that this fabric has white in it. I think it gives depth to the fabric.  There are many colors available. You can find them from here . I may have to get different colors while they are sti
