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!!! 
She has won a 6-month spot on our Fabricista blog, $25 a month for one year to spend on fabric at FabricMartFabrics.com, a Julie's Picks Membership. (A $350 value with media exposure.) 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!!

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.

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 …
