Introducing....Summer of T-Shirts Event!

Summer time is here! Are you looking for something fun to do this summer? If so, you need to check out this sewing event:

There are a lot of t-shirt patterns out there. The big 4 pattern companies have a number of different options and the same with the independent pattern companies. Everyone needs a basic t-shirt in their closet right? Well after you make the t-shirt for the tenth time, you might be sort of tired of it. So why not change it up a bit?

Over the past few months, I have seen so many creative sewers (professional and ameteur) pattern hack t-shirt patterns and create all new designs. I've seen them alter the pattern into something that you don't even realize was a shirt and I've seen sewers alter their fabric or combine unusual fabrics together to make something really interesting. 


This summer, follow the Fabricista blog in our adventure of everything t-shirt. I have lined up some of your favorite sewing experts and sewing bloggers for the "Summer of T-Shirts." Every Monday we will post a new t-shirt project. The pattern hack may be very simple, other times it may be pretty extensive. But the great thing about this event is that it will be available forever! Some of you may take a break from sewing over the summer. So in the fall when you pick it back up, refer to our blog for all the posts. 

If you sew along with us, share your finished garments with us! Use #FMSummerofTShirts on Facebook or Instagram when posting photos of your finished t-shirt hacks. You can use our ideas or if you have your own t-shirt hack idea, share it with us too! At the end of the summer, we will compile all the people that used the hashtag and you will be entered into a random drawing for $75 gift certificate to Fabric Mart!

The first event will go live on Monday, June 20. We will share some of our favorite t-shirt patterns. What are some of your favorite t-shirt patterns? Share your ideas with us!

  1. Fun! I sew a lot of tshirts for everyone in my family. For myself, I love the Deer and Doe Plantain and the Maria Denmark Kirsten Kimono. For my husband - the Thread Theory Strathcona Henley. And for my kids, the Oliver+S School Bus T and Field Trip Raglan.

Made By A Fabricista: ITY Dress

Hi sewing friends - Andrea here from Happy.Things.Here over on Insta with this week’s post – I’m sharing about a favorite fabric and pattern today!  So… the last two months have almost gotten the best of me. We made a somewhat unplanned decision to move homes and life has been just insanely busy and hard to find time to sew. But sewing  is such a joy and a stress reliever for me, so I fit in this fun and easy sew amidst the chaos and it made me sew very happy! Sneak peek – how could this print NOT make someone happy? First, let’s talk fabric. ITY , or Interlock Twist Yarn, is one of my all-time favorite fabrics for sewing clothing. Fabric Mart did an Instagram post with a video on this fabric and I highly recommend you check it out if this fabric is new to you. Three things I love about ITY – 1) it’s easy to care for and rarely wrinkles, 2) it’s easy to wear, great for drapey pieces, and works all year long, and 3) Fabric Mart gets great deadstock prints and colors from fashion design

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Separates in White Eyelet

To me, eyelet fabric suggests warm weather and sunshine.  I can envision myself sipping lemonade, while swaying on a porch swing with a gentle summer breeze on my face, all while wearing a lovely eyelet dress.  Hello Sewing Friends! It’s Sharon with Sharon Sews here sharing my latest Fabricista make with you.  This time I sewed some separates using a summer staple, eyelet fabric.   A quick search online revealed eyelet being used in more than just dresses this season, ranging from romantic dresses to flirty tops to wide-leg pants and matching camp shirts.  I even saw a man’s white eyelet top on a high-end shirt designer’s website.  There are so many options for using eyelet fabric, but I liked the look of eyelet pants with a matching top. Both fabrics were designer fabrics – I LOVE that section on the website! A white 100% cotton geometric floral embroidered eyelet lawn, and a baby pink/white 100% cotton embroidered pinwheel floral voile.  Both are so, so lovely!  I also took advantage

Made By A Fabricista: Breezy Summer Style with Rayon Challis from Fabric Mart.

Hey there my sewing friends!  Summer is here and I am all for it.  It has been exceptionally hot here in Southwest Florida. We have had temps in the high 90’s.  I want to keep cool and comfortable and still look pulled together this summer.  That’s why I chose rayon challis for this month’s summer make.   Rayon Challis is lightweight, flowy, soft and extremely comfortable to wear. It’s an excellent choice for summer outfits.  It has a beautiful drape making it an excellent choice for maxis, tops, dresses, and shorts. The fabric is lightweight and depending upon your sewing project you may need to use a lining with this fabric. Also use a lightweight interfacing when working with rayon challis.  If you are a beginner at sewing, you may find the fabric a bit fiddly to work with, but the end result is so worth it.  Fabric Mart has beautiful challis fabric to choose from. I chose this fun tropical print on an off-white background. This summer season vests are in.  I love the ease of wearin
