Hooray! It’s almost time for summer vacation! And no sewing is getting done this week because of all the end-of-year stuff keeping me busy at work. But guess what that means? Yes, the emails have been coming in for a while now asking about the summer sew-along. So…time to get ready, because it will start next week!
As you pull out the box of your daughter’s summer clothes and start sorting through what fits and what you’ll give away, hang on to one cute print and two coordinating solid T-shirts she’s outgrown.
This year’s summer sew-along is going to be, as usual, a mix and match wardrobe. But this time, as an added twist it will be structured as a “sewing school” to build up your skills week-by-week as we explore different techniques to be successful while sewing knits on a regular sewing machine! At the moment, the patterns are sized for Maplelea/AG, but depending how quickly I finish my other major project, sizes for other 14″-16″-18″ dolls may be available too.
There’s a pretty awesome new pattern and embroidery collection, some of which is pictured above, that may be available by next week. Later this summer or early fall a historical sew- and craft-along should be coming specifically for 14″ dolls, and there are also roughly a million other unfinished projects in the works that I hope to concentrate on finishing this summer 🙂
I’ll leave you with some eye candy of this gorgeous chicken sundress Marge made for her new Kit.
