Friends, I’m so excited that you guys are so excited about this sewalong. I’ll admit that I never know what to expect when I pick a pattern – and I agonized about Simplicity 1880 for a bit – and I never know what people will think or if they will join along. Thanks so much for crushing those fears! Yay! Today, as promised, is a schedule of sewalong events. I’ve made up a calendar which you can download here and print out for reference. Now here’s the thing, for the most part, the calendar is pretty much set. But I’m going to say that there might be a few things that are tentative – you know just in case. I plan to work my little heart out giving you the lowdown on tutorials and tips that I’ve found to be stellar, but just know that you don’t have to keep right up with me. We’ll have a sewalong party in July, say the 19 & 20. Sound good? That way, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up and finish.
I also created a flickr group! Make sure you join up! I’ll be checking over there daily to see if you’ve posted questions and discussions. Upload your photos for your fabric picks to muslins to fitting issues you’re having to finished garments. We want to see it all! Yay! I think that just about covers everything for today. Let me know what you think of the calendar of events! You guys are the best!
