Made by a Fabricista: Youtube Edition | Dee & Dory

YouTuber's Dee & Dory are back on the Fabric Mart blog today with their most recent Fabricista Makes. Make sure to click play on the video below to hear all about their fabric choices & how their projects turned out!

This wrap dress is made out of Butterick B 6703, view C and an easy pattern!  My fabric of choice was a DTY Polyester/Lycra floral paisley print. This fabric has a silky soft hand, lightweight with a fluid drape. The fabric laundered well and sewed up beautifully for perfect early fall beautiful dress.

I chose this super soft Double Brushed Polyester/Lycra floral knit to make a cute fall dress.  I used McCall’s M7353 with a small cowl neck. It just screams autumn to me. I loved the print and it was super easy to sew on. I used Fabric Mart’s iron on interfacing for knits on the neck edge and also on the sleeves. When it came time to put the cowl neck on I had to get out of my own head, because I kept thinking I needed to put it on differently than the pattern said to.  But alas, the pattern is correct!  It washes up terrifically and no ironing required! I even managed to make a scrunchy for my hair out of the same fabric. 

I also made a pair of leggings out of Black Viscose/Lycra Novelty Knit.  I didn’t read all the instructions on care, and so I tumble dried the fabric on medium instead of hanging to dry.  After the shrinkage I thought I would not have enough to make McCall’s M7874, but guess what?  I did! And they are the most comfortable leggings I have ever had. I’m in love with them.

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.

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: A great tee shirt pattern – or three!

Hi fellow sewists! It’s Andrea  @happy.things.here and I’m here today to talk tee shirts!  I love a good tee pattern…or two…or four. Despite having more than enough of them in my pattern collection, I’m always up for trying a new one. And I also have my favorites and tried and trues (TNTs). I love the versatility of a good tee pattern – dress it up with fancy fabrics to make a work wardrobe piece, use a high quality solid to add some basics, or anything in between. Today I’m sharing three patterns I’ve used multiple times and with many different kinds of fabrics - all a little different and all great beginner patterns too. First up is the newest addition to my pattern collection – the Upland tee and crop top by Rivet Patterns. They are a newer designer who I recently discovered when this tee pattern caught my eye. I love that it has multiple bodice options including a classic design tee and also a crop version with different separate and uniquely shaped bodice pieces. I first made the

Made By A Fabricista: In Full Bloom For Spring

We’re in full bloom for Spring with my new fabricista feature for this month! I’m kicking off the season with one of my favorite Spring KnowMe patterns ME2027. This Fabric Mart viscose challis fabric is the perfect fabric for Spring and I love a floral on a black background. It’s giving me bold retro vibes and I'm definitely here for it. When you think of Spring you think of florals, colors and lighter weighted fabrics. This fabric is giving it all. I love the bold large scale print flowers up against the black canvas. The fabric is viscose challis fabric so it has a natural soft drapey feel to it which makes it great for spring dresses, skirts, jumpers and blouses.  For this project I chose to create a version of my KnowMe Spring 2023 Jumpsuit pattern. It had the retro vibe to compliment this fabric and I love the way it turned out. I omitted the trims for this make and made it one solid fabric. This pattern has a zipper at the crotch and comes with buttons at the bodice. I switch
