An hour just wasn't long enough. So next week we'll do it from 19.00 - 21.00.
It was a very simple idea - at 19.00 on Tuesday - we (fellow LWYW challengers) 'checked in' on facebook to say hello and what we were working on. Then we went away and worked on it - some posted photos and Joelle was very kindly 'on hand' to offer any dressmaking advice.
Which I needed!
It meant I was able to sort out my collar on the nightshirt It had gone a bit 'weird' and I wasn't quite sure what to do about it..So at the start of the sew-a-long I posted a photo of the collar and asked for some advice. Here's what it looked like:
|Messy interfacing on the collar - (before)|
Then seeing as I hadn't created a hem - I used a fancy stitch to sew it in place....which looks like this!
|A neat collar!|
The buttons I've chosen from the massive tin I was given are smaller than the ones shown on the pattern - but I liked the colours and think they will work (hopefully). I do need to find my button foot now though!
From what I could see - everyone who took part in the sew-a-long got something out of it! So I'd say Sew-a-longs rock!
To see what everyone else has been up to - visit the Facebook page here! Some really great things happening!
And of course the pinterest page to see what had been made so far!! I get so inspired by seeing all this creativity as well as reading fellow LWYW-ers blogs. Love it!
Sarah Davy posted about what she achieved during the first sew-a-long here.
Amazing what you can do when you set aside a bit of time.
So same time next Tuesday!
Looking forward to it already. ;-)
