In the spotlight today is our man of few words, Dan! Honestly Dan has one of the most labor intensive jobs here at Fabric Mart. One that is not for the faint of heart for sure. All day Dan walks up and down the three flights of stairs in our building, pulling all of the fabrics for your orders, and getting them ready to be cut and shipped out.

Made By A Fabricista: Summer Sewing is in Full Effect

Hi Guys! Today I’m coming to you with this easy, breeze caftan from Simplicity Patterns because summer sewing is in full effect! While looking through my pattern stash, I came across McCall’s 8413. This pattern is described as McCall’s Sewing Pattern Misses’ Caftan In Two Lengths.  This is an Easy to Sew caftan in two lengths has ruched front with drawstring that ties at the bottom, V-shaped neckline, dolman sleeves and narrow hem. View C caftan has contrast on the left side. OK, let’s get into it because I have a few things to share and say about this pattern. When I first saw this pattern, I purchased it because I loved the ruching in the front. I think that ruching can hide just about any “imperfection” you might think you have. Now, I must mention that this is one of the few caftan patterns I’ve ever purchased because I’m petite and feel like I get lost in all that fabric.  Well, I didn’t even realize this was a caftan pattern until I read the pattern description while writing this

Made By A Fabricista: Youtube Edition - Marty

This month was a little different. I decided to take the opportunity to really beef up my summer wardrobe with three new dresses. And since finishing them, they have become my everyday uniform. I started playing with this pattern back in March when I tried, and failed, to make a dress the night before my cousin's wedding. (don't worry I had a backup dress) The pattern that I used for these dresses was my third iteration. And honestly, as with everything your practice, it just got better. These dresses hug every inch of my body and hide everything else. I mean, what else would you want from a dress right? I hope you enjoy the making process as much as I did and I'll see you all next time.  MARTY   |  @scrappypatterns Unfortunately Fabric Mart Fabrics sell out quickly!

Made By A Fabricista: Embracing the linen wrinkles!

Hello wonderful sewists! Today I have a project that I have been meaning to sew for a while, but you know how it goes. Too many ideas, throw in some analysis paralysis, so many, many gorgeous fabrics to wear, and then, bam! Eons have passed. I’m working on sewing the plans that have been in my head the longest, which brings us to this dashing summer frock.  This is the Style Arc Esther Woven Dress. The style is intended for lighter wovens and the design is ripe for color blocking with the included center front and back seams. You could make right and left sides match; go full checkerboard with opposing rear right and left front; or just use four prints and go wild! I’m sticking with the most basic of blocking and splitting the dress down the center.  Importantly, I got matching threads for each linen color for all the topstitching. Matchy matchy is the name of the game in my book. I added bonus bartacks to keep the side seam pockets forward facing.  Medium Sky Blue and Light Steel Blue
