Happy Friday!! It’s finally here
Thank you all for sharing your skirt stories yesterday! Me and a few of you need to get into the sewing room and get at it, because skirts are so easy to make! It’ll be even easier for our Day 7 winner, because Ellen Kudron won Chic & Simple Sewing by Christine Haynes! Congratulations Ellen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address to receive your prize!
Get another chic and simple (and free!) sewing pattern from season 3 guest Ellen Switzer, who demonstrated how to draft a pencil skirt pattern and then adorn it with quick-and-easy ruffled roses in her episode, “Dart Details” and get stitching!
Our Day 8 prize is The Colette Sewing Handbook: Inspired styles and classic techniques for the new seamstress by Sarai Mitnick. This handy handbook will show you how to start sewing the wardrobe of your dreams. It includes 5 gorgeous free Colette patterns to help you get started! (Get extra pattern tips from Sarai in her season 2 episode, “Pattern Play.”)
PLUS, everyone gets a free dress pattern & instructions from season 3 guest (and Monaluna designer & owner) Jennifer Moore. Watch her create the dress and learn about organic fabric in her episode, “Go Organic.”
Enter to win this prize by answering this question in the comments section below: “What is your favorite style of dress to create?”
Trapeze and babydoll dresses are easy peasy, but for me, a good fitted, boatneck dress is worth its weight in gold. I know many of you enjoy sewing for children and grandchildren; do you make adorable frilly dresses for them? Every body and every sewist is different–what’s your preference?
The winner will be announced on Monday, along with the Day 9 prize! Good luck and have a GREAT weekend!
