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!

The fabric is a Double Brushed Polyester/Lycra Floral Knit with a soft hand, flowing fabric.  Wearing so comfortable, you would think you are wearing active wear!  


I decided to go easy with the patterns, using simple basic ones.  The look comes from melding  3 elements from these patterns to complete the look.  


McCalls 8061 view C for the skirt.  A simple 3 pieces, front,back and a waist ban that encases elastic!  Then Simplicity 1073 view A for the basic top.  Raglan sleeves (my favorite) and a jewel neckband.  Easy peasy!

I wanted to have some warmth for my neck and added versatility so I opted for an infinity scarf from New Look 6632!

I now have 3 pieces to wear as a coordinated outfit or wear each piece with other items in my closet! In my book a great make indeed! And as comfortable as you could ever want 😃!

I loved the softness I saw in the Pastel Blue Rayon/Lycra Floral Branches Print Jersey Knit.  So I deduced to make a top using Vogue 9330.  It turned out great.  There’s some nice detail in the sleeves in that there is darts on both the front and back sleeve.  I knew I wanted to make another pair of leggings and found the pale pastel blue polyester/lycra 4 way stretch knit and was hoping it would match.  It did! I used New Look 6529 to make the leggings.  I have to say out of all the leggings I have ever made this fabric was the best!  I highly recommend it for anyone looking to make leggings, super comfortable and it keeps it’s shape very well.  They both washed up beautifully too! Both the Vogue and the New Look patterns are very easy.

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: 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
