Fabricista Fashion Challenge Week 1: Geometric Sweater Knit

Even though I received my fabric last Thursday, I did not cut in to it until late yesterday. When I received my email that the fabric was shipped and it included a picture, I had an immediate vision of what I wanted to make.  

I changed my mind several times, but always came back to my original vision.  Once I received the fabric, it was clear I had to keep to my original vision.  When I tell you this has to be one of the nicest and softest fabrics I have felt in a long time, believe me.  This fabric is like butter. 




It has a really great stretch and recovery, which is really important when working with Knits.  Though I am a Florida girl and do not get to wear much fall items, I love them.  I love the fall colors and for a brief moment, I think about living in a cold environment so I can rock nice coats and over garments, then, I snap back to my senses.  

The submission is due Tuesday, September 13, 2016 which happens to be a very special day for me and my family.  It's my favorite Nephew's (only nephew) birthday.  This child was born a permie with several major health issues and has had several major surgeries, so we are so very blessed to see him turn 12 years old tomorrow.  

Remember you can sew along and submit your entries as well and win 3 yards of this beautiful fabric for yourself. Makes sure you use #FabricistaFabricMart on Facebook and Instagram and all submissions are due by Friday, September 1, 2016.  For more information:  FabricMart.


I hope you guys like my final submission.  I think it is absolutely fabulous.  Stay tuned and Happy Sewing!
