Since I began sewing a few years ago, patterns scurrrrred me. It wasn’t until I began my job at the locally owned fabric store that I work at that I was able to get up enough courage to sew something from a pattern.
SO, this Summer I have deemed the Summer of sewing patterns!
And guess what? I have some fun giveaways (with designers!!), guest posts, and other cool stuff lined up all about sewing patterns!
At the end of the Summer, I want to have a sew along with you all & I’d love your suggestions for what we should sew together! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll announce what the sew-along will be for and y’all can get started picking fabrics!!
This retro, swingy dress is flirty and fun to wear & twirl about it in. (Just don’t twirl tooooo much… or you know… ;))I would say this pattern is for the intermediate seamstress.. only because you have to deal with elastic AND a zipper (which by the way, I was dreading, but it was super simple!). I inched the hem-line up a leeeetle further than I normally would… but, hey! its Summer!
