We are kicking off the new year with new columns, new voices and a new year of sew alongs! As you may have noticed in our latest issue link, we’ve changed things a bit this year. Each issue, we’ll focus two fabulous patterns (and their equally fabulous designers) in the magazine. Grab the patterns at shopsewitall.com and join us each month as we host a different pattern designer who will share tips for choosing and working with various fabrics, special techniques for the pattern at hand, and other helpful info to help you assemble the garments and skill build along the way. Then share your makes with us on Facebook or Instagram by tagging us or using the hashtag #sewalongwithsewnews.
Full disclosure: picking patterns for the year was hard but also so much fun. Our approach was simple: we picked things we wanted to sew! We have a great mix of wardrobe basics, specialty garments and outerwear, accessories and bags, dresses, pants, skirts…you’ll have a whole wardrobe of fabulous handmades when we’re done!
We love our lineup of designers as much as we love the patterns we picked: inspiring pattern designers, fit experts, bag aficionados, blogging favorites and super stylish ladies from within the sewing community. You’re bound to meet someone new and be inspired along the way.
