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: Preparing for the Holidays

Hard to believe the holidays are fast approaching and in six weeks we will welcome a new year!  I am determined to celebrate in a big way!!!   I picked Vogue V1722 by Designer Nicola Finetti for its statement bodice and statement sleeves. Yes, indeed, I am loving its close-fitting bodice, plunging neckline, balloon sleeves, and flared skirt.  I dared to make this special dress in Fabric Mart’s embroidered silk dupioni, a fabric I had not sewn before. I did not prewash the silk dupioni as dry cleaning will be my method of care for the finished garment. I underlined the bodice with prewashed black cotton batiste from my stash instead of the suggested interfacing. Though not called for by the pattern, I also underlined the skirt the same way to minimize wrinkling when I wear it. I prewashed black silk charmeuse (from Fabric Mart) to use as lining. Then I lined the balloon sleeves with champagne colored organza from my stash to give it more body. For the hem band, I used French fuse as int

Past Fabricista Guest Post: Classic Basic Pieces made with Ponte Knit

Happy Friday All! I am ecstatic to be guest blogging today and sharing a few basic pieces that I made.  I truly enjoy the creative process of sewing but writing a detail blog post has been quite challenging the past few months.  Hopefully after this one, I will find more time to document my creations as it helps going back and reading how I created the look.     I have been wanting to create a few basic pieces but kept procrastinating as it is often times cheaper to buy than make.  This summer, I have been truly disappointed with the quality of the tank tops in the department stores and I skipped buying them.  I have been eyeing the ponte knit section for a while on Fabric Mart to buy more colors to add to my stash.  When I saw the beautiful range of colors that were available a month ago with various shades of nude, I knew a few yards wouldn’t hurt my pocket.  I absolutely love the quality of ponte knit that is sold at Fabric mart, especially the rayon/nylon/lycra blend . I decided t

Made By A Fabricista: Winter Poncho

Hello Everyone, Today’s post is all about my new fall/winter layering piece: a poncho with tasseled hem. The Fabric. I selected a heavy weight wool/polyester chunky knit sweater. The fabric is a plaid print with colors perfect for the winter season. It has a one way stretch and nappy textured. The Pattern. I used McCalls 8241 for this project. It is a knit poncho with wide sleeve bands and options for turtleneck, crewneck, cropped, shaped or  tassle hems. I made view C without the turtleneck detail. I modified it by skipping the sleeves, it would have been too thick trying to sewing multiple layers. The Sewing Process. This poncho sewing process was relatively easy and straightforward. I decided to omit the sleeves portion as it would have been too bulky to sew with the weight of the fabric. I made tassels using knitting yarns and attached it to the hem of the poncho. Since I had extra fabric left after cutting the poncho, I used the rest to cut a long chunky scarf. The Styling. For th
