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: Luxe Viscose Rayon Wrap Dress

I've always loved long flowy dresses that skim the floor, no matter what the season is. However, particularly around the Springtime! It's been a while since I've created one but since Spring is right around the corner I'm getting the itch to add them to my wardrobe.  For this months Fabricista feature, I sharing a selection from Fabric Mart's gorgeous viscose rayon collection.  I fell in love with this beautiful viscose rayon fabric which, if you know viscose, you know it  is the perfect fabric for a flowy floor length piece. It's lightweight, yet still opaque, fluid and soft to the touch.  Also, I think viscose is just heavy enough that it's not annoyingly slippery and hard to handle as satin and silks.  Needless to say I was taken by this bold vibrant print! If you know some of my previous pieces I've made, bold and vibrant is my jam! I chose to create a rendition of my Early Spring KnowMe Pattern ME 2020. It's a wrap woven wrap dress with cargo po

This is it, the final round! And we certainly did not go easy on our three remaining contestants this time. This round they had to make their own pair of well fitting jeans. I think they all did an absolutely outstanding job! Take a look what these ladies accomplished & be sure to vote for your favorite! (Link at bottom of post.) And, don't forget to show us your me-made jeans on Facebook or Instagram. Details at the bottom of this post. Danesha from  Classyfied Life So first I must say that this entire challenge has been just that...a challenge! Two weeks ago there was hurricane Irma and I was blessed enough to not lose power and then I went out into the aftermath to capture some photos of my submission. Then two weeks ago I had a big trip planned so I had to do EVERYTHING  in two days . Then the BIGGEST challenge of all...THIS week! I got the challenge and I was super excited to have an extra few days and then before I could even get started I ended up in the eme

Made By A Fabricista: Let’s Make a Leather Bag

Hi Guys! I’m trying something a little different today.  We are going to make a leather bag.  I was looking around the Fabric Mart website for fabric for my next project and I came across Sue’s Pick.  The fabric choice for that day was this gorgeous black leather fabric. The best part was that the leather was only $20 a piece.  When I received it at home, I couldn’t believe how soft the leather was. I was in love. First, we are going to make the pattern and then we’ll sew it up.  You are going to need a ruler, pencil, and scissors to draft the pattern. Purse Pattern Main Pattern Piece – Cut 2 1. Make a 14 x 16 rectangle.   2. At the bottom of this pattern piece, you will cut a 2 x 2 square on each side. 3. At the top of this pattern piece, measure in 1” on each side and then measure from that point down to the corner of the cut-out square at the bottom. Cut that piece off. Pocket Piece – Cut 1 4. Make a 7 x 10 square. 5. Go in ½” at the top and go down 3” on each side. Cut th
