Fabricista Fashion Challenge 5 Winner Announcement!!

Wow! We were blown away by these Fabricistas -- they all really pushed themselves to make a great fitting pair of jeans and are so proud of their accomplishments. I think everyone can relate to these ladies -- tried making jeans, had bad results and put the project away never to be seen again. But they were pushed to try it again and wow, the jeans turned out amazing! 

No matter how the challenge came out in the end, these ladies should be praised for their accomplishments. Great job!!

Let's see how the final challenge went:

Grand Prize winner:
Marica from Overdrive - Life After 30 -- you are the grand prize winner of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge!!!

PLUS special prizes from the judges - her choice of any one pattern from Closet Case Patterns and a jeans making kit for her next pair of jeans! She will also receive Angela Wolf's Delila pattern.

We will have a bio/Q&A post the 3rd Saturday in October and then her first official blog post will be November 18th!

The second place winner is: Carmen from See Carmen Sew!

Great job ladies and thank you so much for participating!!

That's a wrap! Thank you to all our readers, participants and judges. I love that we can get together as a sewing community for some fun and to challenge eachother to try new things. 

Now that the challenge is over, we'll be getting back into the groove of our regular Fabricista bloggers. They have had some well deserved time off on the blog! You'll see some familiar faces in the coming months, but you'll also see a few new faces (including Marica from this challenge!) Stay tuned for those newcomers to the blog. (Most of them you will see in November.) 

Happy Sewing!

I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…
