FitNice System - One Pattern, numerous designs

Jacket from Saint Tropaz
with Sophia Knit contrast.
If you ask anyone who sews clothes for themselves what they consider the hardest part about sewing  a new garment, most will answer "fitting the pattern to my body."  Vogue Fabrics would like to introduce you to Judy Kessigner's FitNice System.  First you fit a "master top" to your figure, and then create numerous new blouses, dresses and jackets by simply altering various aspects of the master pattern. 

Yes, that's right, once you fit the master top pattern to your shape, you can change the sleeve styles & lengths, necklines, hem lengths & styles, and even add different types of front openings to make the top into jackets.  


Judy Kessinger started her career owning and operating a small Retail fabric store in Louisville, Kentucky. She traveled nationwide holding seminars for Hancock Fabrics for over 25 years, designed costumes for national and international figure skaters. 

Five years ago Judy started a new business combining her art of teaching and fitting into the development and production of two patterns-one for Tops and one for Pants. Once you FIT the pattern, an entire wardrobe can be created. Sewing is the easy part but it's the FITTING that makes garments come alive and compliment the body instead of just covering it! 

There is a FitNice DVD for the Master Top and for the Master Pants.  There are 4 "Variations CDs" for the top that give you the full color instructions on how to adjust the Master Top to make nearly one hundred other looks from knits and wovens.  

Each Variation CD offers printable color instructions for numerous stylish looks.


Judy LOVES our Sophia Knit, Tencel Pique Knit and Saint Tropaz collections.  Take 10% Off of these fabrics now through the end of February 2013 with Discount Code: JUDYK

Medical Scrub Fabric for Nurses, Doctors, Orderlies and Lab Techs

Nurses, doctors and health care professionals who are required to wear scrubs have a good idea of what works and does not work for them in the regulation attire.  The "one-size-fits-all" approach to hospital issued scrubs just does not cut it sometimes, you know?
Do you relate to any of these statements? You need a larger pocket for your stethoscope. You won’t wear scrubs with less than two shirt pockets. You like lots of pockets on the pants like cargo pants. You can’t stand pockets on the pants because they pull the pants down. You want a longer scrub top to cover your hips & "thangs" better. You work so hard your side seams are starting to burst. You need something shorter/longer because of your height. You need a fuller cut in the bust, but you don’t want to look like you are wearing a tent at the waist.
OK, OK, OK….. You get the idea.  We all have our preferences.  So, what to do?

The Skinny on Thinsulate

What if we told you there was one fabric that could keep you warm outside, indoors, in your bed - and it would totally go with everything?
What is it?  It's 3M™ Thinsulate™. This is an "interlining" which gets sewn between two fabrics to form a protective barrier from the elements. The next time you sew a winter coat, sandwich Thinsulate between the fashion fabric and the lining to get that extra layer of protection from wind and biting cold. 

Thinsulate™ Insulation Type C offers about one and a half times the warmth of down and nearly twice the warmth of high loft fiberfill insulations when equal thicknesses are compared.  It is designed for use where a thin compressible insulation is important. It is breathable, moisture-resistant and can be washed or dry cleaned depending on individual manufacturers' recommendations. Here's what 3M has to say about their Thinsulate:


"3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation is used in your jackets‚ pants‚ gloves‚ hats and bo…

Becoming a Fashion Designer. Tips on Starting a Fashion Design Business.

We get hundreds of visits from Fashion designers at Vogue Fabrics Warehouse. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know a few dozen of them personally and I have come to learn a few things about what they do well and what mistakes they make. I have especially learned that fashion design and having an apparel line is not an easy business. But once you learn the tricks it can bring a lot of satisfaction, purpose, esteem, fame, and hopefully- profit.
Recently, we were visited by a young designer who was just starting her business.  After working with her for many hours we were able to fill her inventory needs. At the end of her visit, we both agreed she had made the right choice in visiting us instead of making dozens of appointments with vendors in other cities' garment districts. Our access to several dozen fabric types, constructions, and styles, some with continuity and some novelty, ended up being our strongest advantage as a source for fabrics. 
Undoubtedly, she could have saved a littl…
