I am so excited that there are almost thirty people who are interested in this first ever Sew-along on my blog. I will try my best to make it as easy to follow and as instructional as possible.
The object of our desire:
Since we start with a ready-to-wear design we will discuss what pattern choices we have for this project. I can also include a week for those who want to (learn to) draft the pattern with me. Then, we will go over fabric selection and supplies, and, finally, construct the skirt.
To make the pace and the posts more manageable for everyone I would like to post about three times a week. We will move on step-by-step, over five to six weeks - I am already working on a tentative schedule. Let me know please if this works for you. Before we start, I will set up a traditional Flickr group for the Sew-Along where we can post pictures, discuss the work-in-progress and offer a helping hand.
If you have more questions about the Sew-along please go ahead - I will put together a Question & Answer post so we don't miss any of them.
QUESTIONS TO YOU
Finally - the timing. I know that some of you already have pre-holiday sewing plans, so would you prefer to wait until the holiday season is over, or would you prefer to start this skirt as soon as mid-November ?
Well, that's it for brainstorming. Looking forward to your questions, ideas and suggestions!
