Happy May everybody! We’re back today with our #SOIshowoff winner for last month, and we hope you’ll agree it’s a stunner! April was busy busy busy for us at Sew Over It HQ, with the release of Lisa Comfort magazine issue 6, our brand new paper and PDF pattern, Meredith, and our month-long sewing challenge, Selfless Sewing Month. After dedicating our sewing time to others (and with lots of you joining in too!), the month ended with a fantastic community sewing day in our shop, with our staff and customers sewing bags to fill with essential items for a local women’s refuge. It was fantastic!
As it happen, the selfless sewing theme is continuing into our #SOIshowoff competition this month. Our winner for April is Shelley, who sewed this beautiful Betty Dress for her beautiful friend who has scoliosis. After altering the pattern her friend’s body measurements, she’s managed to create a gorgeous fit. The twirls say it all. Stunning!
Congratulations Shelley on such a pristine dress! We hope you friend loves it and feels as fabulous wearing it as she looks. A £20 voucher for our online shop will be on its way to you soon!
