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: Comfy Palazoo Pants - Mommy and Me

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
