On the 22nd of April we launched our latest sewalong – The Clea Dress Sewalong. Not only do we show you how to put the dress together, but we also show you how to add a little something different... and we have had bridesmaids going crazy for it.
They love that this dress is extremely stylish... as both formal and casual wear, and the best part is that it is a dress that can be worn time and time again – so after that wedding it won’t just be sitting in the back of the closet hidden from site and memory, nope you’ll definitely be wanting to wear this one again!
For those who subscribe to our sewalongs, you’ll be receiving FREE sewing club membership, and we really love to spoil our sewing club members.
On top of the free weekly patterns that come with our newsletter, there’s also a monthly pack of sewing patterns.
This month’s club members received a pretty nifty pack of brand new sewing patterns which included the long Clea Dress, a follow up of the shorter Clea dress version (and the pattern that was featured in our April Sewalong).
It also makes a very awesome beach dress, so we just had to include the Fun Beach Bag in this month’s pattern pack.
And if you’re going to be in the sun, you’ll need something to protect those sunglasses... so we threw in our incredibly easy to make Sun Glasses Pouch sewing pattern.
Shirt dresses are HOT HOT HOT for 2017... and our Sewing Club members received the short sleeve shirt dress sewing pattern first, before it was even launched online.
And of course a little something for a formal event, the gorgeous Short Taryn Dress.
But the spoils aren’t over yet! This Sunday is the 30th of April, it’s the last day of the month and it’s also BONUS PATTERN DAY! So exclusively to our sewing club members, you will be receiving our brand new Jilsa Skirt sewing pattern.
If you haven’t yet signed up to our sewalongs yet NOW is the time to do it. May is going to be even bigger and better! On top of everything we are going to be throwing in an extra sewalong. That’s right next month there will be TWO sewalongs to look forward too, and of course you’ll receive the sewing pattern featured in the sewalongs for FREE too!

Use Hairspray in your sewing room
Winter is coming...
That’s right, down here in the South winter is coming, and as we transition to the cooler weather, I find myself fighting off static more and more. A frustrating hindrance indeed!
A couple years ago, on a particularly chilly day, while I fought back meters of satin and chiffon, I discovered that my hair stayed looking fabulous... finally it dawned on me, using hairspray drastically reduces the static cling! Since I have discovered this, I always make sure that I have a tin of hairspray (it must be the aerosol kind, not the water based kind) to lightly spray on my fabrics whenever they feel the urge to become heavily charged and start sticking to things, and I strongly recommend it for any dressmaker (or anybody who doesn’t want their clothes to cling to them while they wear them).
