Ginger Sewalong

The Ginger Sewalong was a lot of fun and was based on the Ginger Skirt put out by Colette Patterns. This has been a great go-to pattern for an A-line skirt and one that I keep coming back to! Its the perfect sewalong for Beginners, so if you are a beginner and looking for a way to whet your sewing appetite, give this simple little skirt a try. You’ll be so happy that you actually were able to make something and that it fits! Yay! Below you’ll find all the Ginger Sewalong posts, in order:
