Fabric Mart/Pattern Review Partnership: Vertical Stripe Knit for the Ina Maxi Skirt

Spring is just around the corner and the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe is a maxi skirt. There are a lot of different maxi dress and skirt patterns out there and PatternReview.com has added a unique and fun skirt pattern to the list. 


The Ina Maxi Skirt has a slight A-line design with two bias godets for a flattering silhouette. This pattern is easy to sew and flattering for all body types. It may even take you less than 2 hours from cutting to finishing! 

This pattern comes in size XS-4XL and looks great on various body types. There are over 30 reviews of this pattern that can be found HERE

This pattern especially looks great with a vertical stripe knit, which we have supplied for Pattern Review. You can't imagine how hard it is to find vertical stripe knits and finding a good one to boot! I searched for months trying to find the perfect vertical stripe and we found four great prints. They are available in limited quantities only through Pattern Review! They come in a 2 yard cut (yes that is enough for the skirt in ALL sizes!) Deepika has a cutting layout on her blog

Here is what's available:

Navy/Coral Vertical Stripe ITY Knit - $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) This stripe knit has a great nautical look to it with the combination of navy and coral. The simple stripes cascade gracefully to the center and the vertical stripe makes you look long and lean!



Multi-Stripe Circle ITY Knit - $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) This is not just a stripe knit, but it also has crazy circles that play with your eyes! Great color combination and could be paired with a lot of different solid shirt options. 



Chevron Vertical Stripe ITY Knit - This has been a crowd favorite. I love that isn't your average chevron design. Variegated chevron design with interesting designs. $17.98 for non-PR members ($16.18 for Friends of PR members) 



Teal/Purple/Black Vertical Stripe Knit (Nylon/Lycra) - $23.98 for non-PR members ($21.58 for Friends of PR members) This vertical stripe knit is a little different from the rest of the knits because it is made from nylon/lycra. This knit is beefier than an ITY knit. Drapes nicely and comes with such pretty coloring.



Doesn't Deepika look great in her Ina maxi skirt? Thanks to Deepika for approaching us with the idea to supplier vertical stripe knits for this project. Watch for other Fabric Mart/Pattern Review collaborations in the future. You never know what we have brewing! :O)



And if you're not into stripes, there are many knits to choose from on our website.

  I've been eyeing the Michael Kors Wool Blend Coatings for some time now.  Fabric Mart had the most gorgeous array of coating colors that I have ever seen!  During COVID stay at home time, I've been letting my gray grow out, and I thought that even though those gorgeous sherbet shades like apricot and apple green would be beautiful, the heathered gray shade would be the most flattering to my gray hair and the most versatile.  Apparently, others thought the same, as the gray is sold out now, but there are still many colors available here:  Coating Category   When I received my fabric, I was just astonished at how soft it was and what a beautiful drape it had.  I searched and searched for the perfect pattern- changing my mind at least a dozen times before I settled on Simplicity 3672.   This is one of the few patterns that only was available in sizes 18-24, and not in smaller sizes.  It is about 10 years old, but there are definitely copies available on the internet.

 Animal prints are e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e!  So much so, that my hubby noticed and commented.  :)  Not one to try and be left out, I drooled over this cute print!  It appears to be sold out, so here are some fun choices!  Animal prints I have been wearing so many light layers lately since the weather can't decide what it wants to do this time of year.  I knew I wanted a cardigan and to make a sort of 'modern' twin set sort of look, I grabbed enough to make a top I could wear underneath or by itself.   I love how textured this knit is! Let me show you, and tell you what I did to accommodate a textured knit fabric.   Here is a photo of the back.  You can see what the back looks like to imagine what the texture looks like on the front. Don't let ridges scare you!  They are easy to sew.  Here's what I did. Use a lot of pins or clips.  Personally, I love the clips.  They fasten easily and unclip easily.     Sew a few inches, lift the presser foot, and repeat.  Sometimes the
