Fashion Challenge 5 - Contestants Selected!

The moment you have all been waiting for...the Fashion Challenge contestants have been announced! We had LOTS of people submit entries over the past month and as always, it is so hard to select just 6 people out of a large number of talented seamstresses. I think this challenge will have a good mix of bloggers you may already follow and few newbies that you will get to know through the challenge. 

Challenge begins Friday, September 1! Don't forget you can follow along with the challenges. Just used #Fabricista5 when posting a photo of your project to Facebook or Instagram. (The photo must go along with the challenge for that week.) Each week, one winner will be selected to win a prize. 

Here are the contestants:


Danesha from Classyfied Life




Victoria from Very Blissful




Lindsay from Lindsay Baker Co.


Carmen from See Carmen Sew

Congrats to all who made it into the challenge, we're excited to see what you create! Get your scissors, sewing machines and imaginations started. You've got a month of creative sewing ahead of you!

We'll see you all on September 1!

  3. When was the submission period announced????! I've been watching the blog like a hawk all August because I wanted to sign up this year and I didn't see any announcement. Really disappointed it wasn't advertised better.

    1. I'm sorry you missed it. We announced it at the beginning of August. It was on the blog, but I have taken it down now. We also promoted it on social media. Watch for it next year!

Made By A Fabricista: Fall Capsule Wardrobe with Pattern Emporium

Hello fellow fabric lovers! At long last the very best of all seasons has commenced and I'm ready to embrace the impending chill. When Fabric Mart held their sale for 65% off knits (!) I had a ridiculously fun time curating a little collection for myself to sew into a wardrobe that would be perfect for both warm and cool days since fall likes to tease with temperature changes. Can you even believe this whole stack (and thread!!) came in just under $50?! Mind blown. I wear a lot of light wovens in summer to keep cool, and switching to more cozier knits really marks a welcome change in my wardrobe.  There are many designers I simply adore, but the reason I chose Pattern Emporium's patterns for this project is because the garments are already created to pair well with many other designs in the collection. Since I've previously sewn all of these particular items and own just about the entire expanse of PE's patterns, this was a relatively easy decision and I had no doubts a

Made By A Fabricista: A Designer-Inspired Jacket in an Embroidered Silk Suiting

Hello my sewing friends!   When September rolls around many of us look forward to wearing cozy sweaters while sipping pumpkin spice lattes. However, I live in a warm ­weather state – umm, scratch that – I live in a hot weather state, and I wear layering pieces rather than cozy sweaters. Like this jacket! Vogue 1831 is a Gucci-inspired jacket pattern that was released a few months ago. The fully lined jacket looks like a basic jacket from the front, but turn around and you’ll find an inverted pleat with an adorable bow detail! I wanted to sew this jacket to wear with jeans and when I saw this embroidered silk suiting, I knew I’d found my fabric. There is a gold metallic swirl embroidered into the fabric that glitters slightly when the light hits those threads.  Trust me, the photos don’t capture the beauty of this fabric. Although this fabric was listed as dry-clean, I preshrunk it in the machine using a gentle cycle with a cold wash and cold rinse.  I placed it in the dryer on low heat

Made By A Fabricista: Chanel Inspired Boucle Jacket

I've always admired the iconic look of a Chanel Boucle Suit Jacket. The Chanel Jacket style is versatile and classic. Over its rich 100-year life span, the jacket has appeared with collars, zippers, buttons, pockets, trim, fringe, and many other variations. It is worn by everyone from movie stars, royalty, first ladies, and just everyday women. Why? Because the luxurious silhouette, boucle fabric, and tailored fit look great on everyone! Having admired the Chanel Boucle Suit Jacket for most of my life, I set out to acquire one. After a few Google searches for Chanel jackets and a glaringly steep $6,000 price tag (believe it or not, that was for pre-owned Chanel.) I knew the only way I'd ever wear a jacket like that is if I made one. Enter in $50 of fabric from Fabric Mart, $30 in notions, a $10 sewing pattern, and my Chanel dreams could become a reality.  I started my Chanel look-a-like jacket by researching sewing patterns that would help me capture that iconic look. I wanted
