Fabricisa Fashion Challenge Contestants Have Been Selected!!

The day is finally here...we have selected the contestants for the Fabricista Fashion Challeng!

After lots of back and forth between who should be selected, we narrowed it down to the six contestants who will play in this year's challenge! It was QUITE a challenge to select just six people out of the large pool of entries. So many talented seamstresses, we almost felt like we should pick names out of a hat! While we didn't do that, I think we have a good mix of fabulous sewers that you will enjoy watching and will perform greatly in this challenge.

Here they are....

Melanie from It's Melanie Darling


Brittany from Brittany J. Jones


Tee from Maggie Elaine


Elizabeth from Elizabeth Made This


Jennifer from Clothing Hacker


LaTonya from Sew So Petite


See you on September 9th when we announce the first challenge!

Don't forget you can sew along with the challengers. Post photos of your challenge projects on Facebook and Instagram using #FabricistaFabricMart. A winner will be selected each week to win a prize.

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. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions, I am here to help you on your sewing/fitting journey!  HANNAH    |  @modistra.sews Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!

Made By A Fabricista: Twirling in Liberty of London!

Hi Fabric Mart Fans! One of my very favorite things about Fabric Mart is being able to snap up some totally amazing deals - and this month I definitely scored one of those! When I noticed a shipment of Liberty of London Tana Lawn had been added to the site AND was on sale, I KNEW it had to become my next project! This is such a beautiful fabric to sew and wear - it's lightweight, has a crisp hand, is tightly woven, and feels sooo nice! I decided to get 2.5 yards to create a beautiful sleeveless dress with double circle skirt for my eldest! I used the  Peony Patterns Freesia  - the twirl is fantastic, the dress is fairly straightforward to sew, and the print on the fabric makes it so feminine and pretty! One of the easiest ways to finish a circle skirt is with a bias binding facing. I created my own bias strips with some lime green gingham cotton shirting, and used the same fabric to create the optional waistband tie. Fans of Liberty of London know that you never throw away yo
