For the first time ever, I'm hosting a Sew Along. Grab the above button and come join us! :)
I was elated when I read that my dearest blog friend Dura is also an Ottobre fan. Since I have this magazine but hardly sew anything from it, we wanted to have a sew along so that we can help each other along the way, in case we're stuck. The designs in Ottobre are to die for, but the instructions can be challenging for a visual person like me.
So, I've decided to host this sew along.
For the first project, I've chosen a simple design but it comes with many possibilities. It is the Three Way Dress (no. 18) in the Summer 3/2009 Issue. Even though it's a summer pattern, the dress is designed for layering in cooler weather.
The best thing about this pattern is it comes in 3 variations. You can pick and choose which design you'd want to sew and go crazy on the fabric combinations! :)
This sew along is open to all Malaysian and International sewists who have this issue. Everyone is welcome, no matter where you are. We are hoping many more wonderful ladies would join and inspire us. Just email me or leave a comment here if you'd like to join us in the fun!
If you have a blog, please grab the button on top of this post and paste it with a link to this page so that others are aware about the sew along and perhaps would like to join us too.
I will feature the final pictures of your finished dresses in this blog (with your permission, of course). If you don't have a blog, no worries. Just email me the picture and I will include it in the feature.
Finally, as in any sew along, we need a dateline. As Dura and I are both working mothers, we figured a longer time frame would be better. This sew along ends on Sunday, 31st of January. I might extend the dateline if needs arise, always have to have some flexibility ;)
Till then, happy sewing!
