    I am absolutely loving these sew alongs. Could you possibly put a list of all the ones done so far on here? I keep buying fabric for different ones and then it arrives I can’t remember which one i brought it for!

I have bought two ebook in the last couple of days and I’ve ordered some fabric for Audrey top I love the vintage style but I also love the ebooks, brilliant ☺️ keep doing what you doing guys brilliant ☺️

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Aw thank you so much Vanessa!

  8. Tori says:

    I love that you guys are doing this and it’s 1 more example of how small businesses do it better. Is there any chance you will be sewing the Libby shirt? That collar is certainly tricky.

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Thanks! The Libby Shirt sewalong starts on July 28th 🙂

  9. Jan Brodie says:

    Thank you for all the lock down sew-alongs, they have been lots of fun and very helpful. I have joined the PDF club and Stitch School as a result, and would highly recommend both. Currently sewing the Audrey top to get me going before I tackle the Summer Dreaming capsule. Fallen out with my machine a few times, but thanks to Lisa’s you tube instructions it’s still alive and so is the top . Keep up the great work folks, you’re doing a fantastic job of educating the nation

  10. Victoria says:

    I love that you guys are doing this! Are you planning on a Libby shirt sewalong?

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Yes! It starts on 28th July!

  11. KathleenLittler says:

    I love watching your sewalongs, you often ask what people are sewing, I am sewing my second Penny Dress made a few mistakes on the first one

  12. loriannpa says:

    I haven’t missed a sewalong since Lisa started them! I’ve been garment sewing for many years, but I still pick up a tip or two from Lisa and chatting live with people from all over the world is thrilling as well. Lisa has opened up the world to her sewing classes and chatty banter as well as opening up her new home to us for all to share. Decorating tips are a bonus!

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Aw that’s lovely Loriann!

  13. Kay Anderson says:

    I am looking to purchase a new overlocker and would appreciate your recommendations/comments.

    Many thanks

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      We only have experience of Janome 6234Xls, but they’re great!

  14. Sophia says:

    Yaaaay!!!….Thrilled that the Poppy Jumpsuit is scheduled for the sew along. I really love the design and can’t wait to have my very own. I’ve had the pattern for a while now, but have been reluctant to start because the test square is slightly small on the PDF pattern.. Hopefully they’ll be tips to combat this?

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Yay! You need to make sure the test square is exactly 10cm x 10cm otherwise your finished garment won’t come out the correct size. We’d recommend printing it again using 100% scale on your printer settings. If you can’t do that and the square is smaller, you’ll need to select a larger size to make up for the difference, but we’re not going to be able to give advice on which size to choose I’m afraid. If you can print again, we’d recommend it!

  15. Linda Thomas says:

    Very much enjoy all the sewalongs. I’ve just bought the Jessie Coatigan PDF so I’m hoping that a sewalong may come along soon for this pattern too! Linda

  16. Patricia Ince says:

    I love watching the sew alongs with Lisa, although I don’t sew as much these days, at 82 I cant always find the energy but what I do want to ask is why you just sew with only three reels of thread on the overlocker I have the same overlocker which I have had for about twenty years and I always use four reels? Something that amused me is all the years I have had my Janome overlocker I did not realise that that there was a thread cutter on the side and its only through watching Lisa tnat I knew it was there – duhhhh! Lol! Kind regards to you all.

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      Four reels of thread allows you to sew seams without using a standard sewing machine, so you can sew jersey garment seams solely on an overlocker. Three threads is all you need for finishing seams, but to avoid having to thread and rethread, most people keep it threaded with four 🙂

  17. Emma says:

    Can you please do a sew along for the bonnie blouse? I really want to buy that pattern but it looks to hard to sew. Thank you

    1. Alex - Sew Over It says:

      We’ll add a sewalong to our list but it’ll probably not be until next year. But we have a free class on sewing the pleats on Stitch School here: https://sewoveritstitchschool.co.uk/courses/sewing-the-bonnie-blouse That’s the trickiest bit so should help!

  18. Jules says:

    Hello, please can you do a sewalong for the Anderson blouse and the Lois dress?
    I love your sew alongsk, thank you for doing them!

    1. admin says:

      Hi Jules,

      We’ll definitely add them to the list! 🙂

  19. H.J says:

    The Sewalongs are brilliant – I have learnt so many sewing tips but they also really help my mental health, Lisa is so positive and chatty, everyone in the live chat is lovely. They are the highlights of my week as it is such a welcoming community and really friendly, calming atmosphere. Big thank you to Lisa and the SewOverIt team.

    1. admin says:

      Ah, thanks so much! It’s the same for us too – it’s why we love doing them! 🙂

  20. ejtruscott says:

    Hi will you be completing the dandelion dungarees, I’m stuck on the bagging out stage and was disappointed that you didn’t get to that part!

    1. Nicola - Sew Over It says:

      Hi, please email [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help with the bit you’re stuck on!
