Upon seeing this wonderful cotton lycra knit print in the Fabricville online shop, I knew I had to make something that would highlight the scribble print — as a sewing librarian, I have a real weakness for any kind of alphabet/text based print. I used this charming fabric to make my first ever Marcy Tilton pattern, Vogue 9329, which is rated “easy”.
Winter is soon coming! When the temperature drops, a warm coat and a good pair of boots quickly become a necessity. Would you like to try your hand at sewing outerwear? In this newsletter, you will find everything you need to make your very own winter coat.
Hi there, I’m back here on the Fabricville Sewing Blog to share an exciting and beautiful make. I’m actually wearing my dress right now as I type this up, that is how excited I am to share this with you all.
Fall is definitively the best season for fashion lovers! In this post I’ll share this midi length dress I created for the fall blog tour.
I am so thrilled to share my first fall project for Fabricville with you! It is only fitting that my first dress for my favorite season be this gorgeous and classy McCall 7429 number. Everything about this dress is to die for.
Every year, my favorite sewing project, by far, is my children’s Halloween costumes. I usually start sewing in September, seeing as I have to make three! I took complete advantage of the fact that my kids are still very young, so I got to choose this year’s theme: Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
This fall I decided to get practical. I travel a lot with family all spread out and I decided I really needed something I could wear en route and still wear around when I arrive.
For most parents and kids, September means back-to-school season. For fashion lovers like me, it also means the arrival of new Fall fashion! Fabricville’s buyers sourced the latest trends in fabrics and I can’t wait to share them with you.
When I came across the McCalls 7120 dress pattern, I knew I wanted to make view D for a summer dress. While I was searching for the perfect fabric for this project, I saw this Embroidered Border Cotton fabric in Aqua/Blue and I figured this was the perfect fabric for the vision that I had in mind.
Leopard print outfits are always attention-grabbing, but none more so than American actress Marian Nixon’s. In 1925 she turned heads and probably crashed cars, as she walked down Hollywood Boulevard in a leopard skin coat, accessorizing with her pet leopard on a leash… (This is definitely what you call pushing fashion to the extreme!)

Bonjour à toutes,
Je m’appelle Virginie et je suis bien heureuse de faire partie de ce blog, et de donner un peu de visibilité aux femmes aux généreuses formes.
Adding a touch of colour to my otherwise neutral living room with my DIY No-Sew Cushions.
The long sunny days of summer are finally here. It means that we have more time to enjoy the outdoors with our loved ones.
Hello fellow sewists! My name is Sara and I am very excited to join the Fabricville Blog community!
Welcome to my first blog post for Fabricville, I’m really excited to be here!
I fell into sewing by accident, or rather, necessity. I used to come to my friend’s house in Town of Mount Royal and borrow her sewing machine to hem the curtains.
If you follow me for long enough, you know that I am a shirt-dress addict. While purging my closet at the end of winter, I realized 2 things:
I’ve been working away on a new Lisette pattern, Butterick 6567. I liked the potential of this pattern when I saw it, the contrast yoke offered some possibilities.
Warm sunny days will be here before we know it, so it is time to start thinking about swimsuits. From bold cutouts to ruffles and everything in between, this season offers swimwear styles to suit your every mood.
This spring I decided to try something new, totally inspired by a fabric.
I always been obsessed by Dirndl dresses and find them so feminine and pretty! I don’t know if it is just me, but there is kind of a vintage look to them, which I love.
My obsession with asymmetric necklines reached its peak last year but I had never thought of making my own until McCalls released their version of it. I was sold right away and knew exactly what to make while I was going through Fabricville’s spring fabric collection.
Whenever I want to start a new project, I usually choose a pattern first and then I’ll go shopping for the fabric and notions. This time tough, I had an idea of the fabric that I really wanted to use before I even knew what to do with it.
Spring is here! The flowers are blooming, the trees are coming back to life, and the wind has never felt more refreshing.
After a long winter, all I want is for my body to get some sun therapy. The cold shoulder look, as well as those culotte are just perfect pieces to transition to the new season.
A casual bomber jacket in chic lace fabric – how does it fit in a curated wardrobe? Is it a piece that you would reach for time and time again, or is it a once-in-a-while kind of garment, which is hard to pair with other clothes?
The trendy fashion jacket that will take you from Spring to Summer is presented here for HER, for HIM and for the entire FAMILY. Inspirations, sewing projects and products we love.
I’ve recently created a pattern inspired by a tank top I’ve tried in a store and I’m not ashamed to say I probably wear my creation at least twice a week. I can’t help it; the style is incredible and it fits my personality.
Let us introduce you to our newsletter editor, Chantal Lapointe. She started collaborating with us in 2015 and we thought that it was a natural fit to bring her on board for this new project.
This is my latest make using a gorgeous Fabricville velour. I used Vogue 9275, a wardrobe pattern, focusing on View B, the tunic.
Christmas is upon us and though I’m not completely ready…I will be dressed for it! I love this time of year because you can bring out all that glitters and sparkles and shines.
It’s that time year when we want to feel comfy and cozy because its getting cold outside! I used one of my favorite patterns to make Amelia a pyjama top, Jalie 3245 and for the bottoms I used Jalie 3243 for the first time.
Every year, I look forward to the arrival of the Fall fabric collections. This year, the Monsoon rayon twill collection caught my eye and the foulard print in green and navy blue was instantly my favorite. Right away, I wanted to make it into a long shirt to wear with skinny pants and long boots.
November is here and this means lots of grey and dark days. I made it a mission to add a couple of brighter fall make to my Fall wardrobe. For this look I decided to create Anne Klein’s Vogue 1509.
Fall is all about basic pullover tops so when I saw this vogue 9169 pattern, I knew I had to make it. I hunted for the perfect fabric from Fabricville and made this magical combo. I have never made two views of this same pattern as fast as I made this!
Fall is here! The best way to start my favorite season and keep warm is to make the comfiest, most gorgeous jacket in this beautiful Kashmir coating fabric.
Like most women one of my aims with my sewing is to make sure I always have something to wear for whatever I do.
Fall is definitively my favorite season to dress up! I love layering clothes and wearing colorful garments. I made it a tradition to enter into fall with a brand new coat.
This t-shirt dress pattern caught my eye when I first saw the McCall’s Spring 2017 pattern collection.
I saw this gorgeous linen-rayon blend ages ago and was thrilled to be able to get a length of it along with the newish McCalls 7597 for my new experiment…
Are you preparing to take a vacation in the next few weeks? There’s no better way to prepare for your trip than by producing some cool DIY sewing creations to accessorize your travel items.
Hello Everybody! If you are looking for a sexy yet classy look for a summer night outing, look no further! Vogue 1531 and this amazing stretch satin will make your occasion that much better.
On my recent trip to San Francisco I knew exactly the jacket/coat I needed, both there in the misty mornings and at home in the windy and wet days here in Halifax.
As we were deep in the throws of another Canadian winter, I was longing for summer days and warm weather. To get myself through, I was clinging to my laptop, taking in all the Spring 2017 fashion trends, dreaming of what I would make and wear.
I have to say I was thrilled when Jalie patterns appeared at my local Fabricville. I have long been a huge Jalie fan and it was so nice to know that I can now just go down to the bottom of my street to buy them – no more taping printed letter sized sheets together, no more waiting for the patterns to come in the mail.
Now that winter is finally behind us and the sunny days have begun, it won’t be long until your patio once again starts playing host to garden parties, BBQs and other fun gatherings with friends. However, before that, you should make sure your furniture is up to the task. If your patio furniture has not aged well, you should consider refurbishing it by updating the fabric. Ditch the dirty old cushion covers and replace them with something that has style and sophistication!
The sporty chic look is still very present in fashion magazine. I am sure that it’s due to the fact that it is so easy to wear and very comfortable.
I decided that this Spring and Summer were going to be all about dress this year! When I saw the lovely fabric for the Spring collection of Fabricville, I knew I was going to have a lot of fun creating dresses this year!
My most recent make is this beautiful floral dress (Very trendy this year) I made using McCall’s 7119 pattern and the Bubbly Crepe coordinate.
Hey there! I’m back with another dress…(I promise you, I do make some practical, everyday garments, really I do) …but it’s no secret that I love dresses and this one is on the favorite list for sure! It would be perfect for a summer wedding.
Ruffles are definitely getting some attention this year and with the weather getting warmer, I had to celebrate by making this gorgeous fit and flare ruffle dress.
The history of knitting is certainly a tricky one to unpick. Due to early knitting projects being made from natural fibres such as wool, cotton, and silk, many have since decomposed leaving few surviving examples of the craft. So where did knitting originate? Let’s deconstruct this mystery!
As Spring approaches I’m trying to hurry it up by making a warm weather dress, from bright red quilting cotton featuring playful mice, of course! Unfortunately making a cotton spring dress means I had to wait a week for a day suitable for outdoor pictures after finishing it.
I recently returned from a trip to Punta Cana…I know…lucky me. Believe me, I’m still pinching myself! It was a 25th wedding anniversary gift to ourselves and we had a blast!
Even if I am that type of person you always caught wearing a pair of jeans, I really do love dresses; s
Big thanks to Fabricville for the fabric and notions used for this project!
While patiently waiting for spring to come back, I am slowly building my Spring Wardrobe.
I have been sewing up a storm lately. There are just so many things I want to make. Pinterest may have a lot to do with that lol.

This dress pattern was on my sewing list as soon as I saw it in McCall’s Fall 2016 collection.
I consider myself to be a pretty crafty person,
My love affair with coats runs deep. Embarrassingly deep.
Winter is coming but first we have to survive Halloween.
Happy Fall everyone! I love the heat of the summer
For the past few years, jumpsuits have been all the rage.
Fall is back and it is time to start covering ourselves again!
I usually start a project with a pattern in mind, but this time started with the news cycle and a fabric.
(*Note: The photos look a bit blurry, but that is only due to the type of fabric that I’ve used! Try to take a clear picture of suede, it’s a little hard)
Getting in a little more summer sewing while I still can.
There’s still plenty of sunshine outside so why not make another cute summer dress!
I finally jumped on the exposed shoulder look bandwagon!

Few inventions have changed the course of history as much as the sewing machine. Imagine if it was still up to women
Lately I have had the bright idea of actually sewing clothes that I would wear everyday
So we’ve had a taste of nice weather and I think we’re all about done with sewing up

Sometimes the fabric decides the dress. I saw a quilting cotton at Fabricville.com, called Mallowway Green Diamonds. It reminded me of
