Saltspring – Sew – A – Long

My Sewaholic Saltspring Dress bodice is complete – lining and all. I have never attempted lining before! Caroline’s sew-a-long instructions are so very helpful. I went with the wider strap instead of the spaggetti style. The bottom of the dress instructions will be posted on Wednesday – cant wait.

Sure wish I had a dress form – but my lamp will have to do for the photo shoot.

I am a very indecisive person, but after a night of lurking about for a pattern I decided on the Saltspring Dress by Sewaholic for my Sew Weekly Reunion. There are so many awesome patterns out there – I  wish I had more time. Sewaholic is hosting a sew-a-long from August 16-30 – so the timing is perfect!  I usually choose easy patterns (sorbetto, knits etc) so I thought this might be a bit up a challenge with lining & a zip.  And the step-by-step of the sew-a-long will be the extra help and motivation I need.  Another reason to check my mailbox!  Can’t wait.  Now for 2013 Fall Pantone color inspired fabric choice.
