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.

Made By A Fabricista: Two Luxury Linen Dresses to Transition from Summer to Fall

Hello Sewing Friends! I’m excited to share my latest Fabricista projects with you all, as these dresses were so nice to sew up. And they are just perfect for this time of year as summer transitions in to Fall here in the Midwest.   I chose 2 gorgeous linen fabrics to work with this month. I have to say, these are two of the loveliest linen fabrics I have ever worked with in my decades of sewing. These 100% Italian Linen fabrics are so unique and just an amazing quality.    The pattern I chose was one that I picked up during a Fabric Mart Fabrics pattern sale. I don’t sew a lot with Indie patterns and so when I saw the sale, I took advantage and stocked up so I could try out a few brands. This Wildwood Wrap Dress from Sew House Seven pattern company has been on my to-sew list for months and I knew these linen fabrics would be perfect for the design.  I started out with this gorgeous solid linen as my wearable muslin. Since it was a new to me pattern company, I knew I needed to test t

Made By A Fabricista: Silky Prints for a Tropical Vacation

Hello again!   I want to share with you my latest project using silky prints. My family had been planning to go to the Virgin Islands for a vacation. For this trip I wanted loose-fitting outfits. When the summer Vogue patterns were released, I fell in love with the vintage Vogue V1886 caftan. It is ankle length and the sleeves fell elegantly to the hemline, hitting the arm slightly above the elbows. It has a scooped back, which would make it comfortable in hot weather. There are side panels, but no seams. I could wear this relaxing under an umbrella during the day or for an evening stroll to enjoy the breeze on the beach. FM’s polyester lightweight charmeuse silky prints caught my eye. Even though I swore I would never again sew slippery fabrics, the coastal mountain print on the fabric (SKU UQA7666r) was hard to resist.  The moonstone blue/berry pink/medium blue/taupe were cool relaxing colors. While looking at the first fabric, I saw another silky print (SKU UQA7667r) that was ha

Made By A Fabricista: YouTube Edition | Hannah - Full Bust Adjustment

When I first started sewing I quickly realized the size I was cutting out in shirts and dresses wasn’t fitting my shoulders.  Why you may ask? I was only measuring according to my bust measurement which made my tops too big in the shoulders. After some research and asking in Facebook groups I learned I needed to do a Full Bust Adjustment on all of my patterns.  I watched tons of videos and read books on how to do a FBA and I found one way that continues to be my favorite way to this fit adjustment.  The pivot and slide method has become my go to for every FBA I do.  In this video I walk you through the steps to help you get the right fit for your bust area.
