September Wrap-Up & FabricMart Fabricista Challenge Week 5

I WON!!!!!! 

Oh my gosh! Thank you everyone who voted for me! I get freeeeee fabric and sewing goodies this week! 

Yay me!!! 

Head on over to the Fabric Mart blog to see next weeks challenge. We got mystery bundles and we have to create an outfit using FOUR of the fabrics we received. There's pics of the bundles we received on the blog :)


Now, Hold on to your hats.

September was a record month. It started out like any other month...

Wait, no it didn't! I started the month off with a 5 day weekend and though it was an over-scheduled one, I knew I'd be having some sew-a-palooza. I started out sewing a second pair of pants (The 1st was technically sewn in August). And the rest is history. (what's up with me and bad quotes today??)

S2700 pants in black cotton something blend: 2.25
B6104 jacket in red print cotton/wool blend suiting 2
Grainline Scout tee in black challis w/ivory charmeuse overlay 2 (contest sewing)
S1317 tees for my daughter 3.25
NL6123 dress in purple wool crepe 2.5 (contest sewing)
V8993 cardigan in black/grey 2.25
V1411 pants in berry ponte 1.75
RTW copy top in printed jersey 1.5 (contest sewing)
S1775 cape in carpet fabric poly woven 2 (not yet blogged)
S1314 dress in red moleskin 2 (contest sewing)
Burda Style 08/2014 #132 tee in black/white stripe 1.75
Kwik Sew 3299 tee for my son in blue jersey 1.25 (not yet blogged)
M6612 tee in hatchi knit 1.75 (not yet blogged)
M6360 leggings in animal print jersey 1 (not yet blog)


Total Sewn: 27.25 yards 

I can't designate a favorite this month. It's too hard!!! :) 

I'm not making any plans for October. 
1) Luckily, I am still in the contest - yay! and there are 2 more challenges. 
2) I am traveling like 40% of the month.

I have SO many things that I want to sew. SO MANY. 

I went through my UFO bin and there are a few things that really need to be finished and put into my wardrobe. A few are summer items so I put them back to revisit later.

I should easily (hahahaha!) be able to stick to a fabric diet for the month. I need to sew some stash before buying more. Seriously. No, I'm for real!!!

I need a break from pattern buying too but I really want this new Style Arc pattern!!!!

  17. Oh I'm so glad you won. You totally deserved it . That was a great dress! I read your post and realize we must be kindred spirits. You sound as excited about sewing, and fabric and patterns as I am. I'm really trying to put a stop to my pattern and fabric buying , but I'm such a weakling in that regard. Oh,and I love that Style Arc jacket pattern!!!!
