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: 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: 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

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
