New Sewing Pattern coming in February!


Here are some up close details of the new pattern (with no name yet!). Now this pattern may look like it has some details that are not for a beginner but I have made it super easy for the beginner to make this dress. Some of the details are the scallop accent with fabric cover buttons on each scallop. There are no button holes. The buttons are for looks only. You can also add a small fabric flower/rosettes on each scallop or some vintage buttons. Also if you look closely you will see some rick rack on left edge of scallop accent. This was not something I originally was going to add but I just love the subtle sweet accent of rick rack!

My fabric for the cover came in yesterday!! I do want to make a small change to the front top band to make it fit a little better. This is a drop waist dress that sews together very easily! I will be working on the top band the next couple of days. I will need some testers so thanks to the ones that already let me know. Please email me so that I can place you in this sewing pattern folder of testers.

And check out Nanette from Nanoo Designs who made it into our local newspaper (and thanks to her they added You Can Make This and our etsy shops to the article!!) Congratulations, Nanette, and thanks!!

Also, as I do my normal daily routine, my heart breaks for Haiti and the people there. I have added info on Samaritan's Purse below if you are interested.
