Spring Sew-Along Update

Hi there! We just finished up our Colette Patterns Laurel dress sew-along and I will post a pattern review along with photos of my finished dress very soon. It turned out great! My friend Cara from My Little Lady Designs made herself a Laurel top and it's super awesome!! For now, you can check out pics HERE at our Flickr group. We took a little break afterwards and starting today we're going to tackle a Jamie Dress Sew-Along, pattern by Sis Boom. Mine will be in Jennifer Paganelli's beautiful Eloise fabric shown in the pattern example photos, and perhaps I'll do another in a yet to be decided fabric!

 Here is the proposed schedule for our Jamie dress sew-along:

Mon 5/13: Print/assemble pattern, cut pattern pieces
Tues/Fri 5/14-5/17: Sewing!
Sat/Sun 5/18-5/19: Finishing touches/adjusting fit

Excited to keep you updated on our progress! I think our next sew-along will be Sis Boom's Vanessa, which will be perfect for the upcoming hot summer months! Can you tell that I'm becoming a Sis Boom pattern collector? They make it too easy with all the convenient digital patterns. :) I'm also planning a few projects from the Colette Sewing Handbook, which arrived at my house from Amazon last week. I'm really looking forward to soaking up more sewing technique knowledge as I dive into that book. The Truffle dress especially seems flattering and fun to sew! Looking forward to all these fun sewing adventures ahead!
