The Doris Dress Sewalong begins!


Happy Monday everyone! It was a delicious weekend in London. I hope you all had sunshine where you are too.

Today we’re focusing on our lovely new pattern, the Doris Dress! Released last month (read all about it here), we were so overwhelmed by how many of you snapped her up. Have you got your copy yet?

The Doris Dress is an intermediate level pattern, but we know some of you advanced beginners would like to have a go. And you most certainly can! But we thought to make your life easier, we’d create a sewalong: a step-by-step, fully-photographed guide to sewing your Doris Dress from beginning to end.

The sewalong will begin on Wednesday 11th May when we’ll be gathering our supplies, choosing fabric, and measuring ourselves. The really fun bit (sewing!) will then begin on Friday! If you haven’t got your pattern yet, you’ve still got time!
