The start date and format were similar to a Pattern review contest, but rather than the 2 month time frame over there, this sewalong had a more sensible (to me) four month time frame.
The general premise was that in the time period you sew up 8 pieces that can be worn with each other. No orphan garments here please!
I started with a big list of patterns that wanted to make, and then loosely decided that I would follow a 2 dresses, 2 tops, 2 bottoms, 2 toppers plan to make up my wardrobe.
I also decided I would like to try and make it all from stashed patterns and fabric.
|Style Arc Toni Designer Dress|
|Maven French Dart Shift Dress|
|Itch to Stitch Hepburn Turtleneck|
|Hot Patterns Breton Tee|
|Sewing Rabbit Cowl Sweatshirt|
|Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan|
|Style Arc Allison Skirt|
|Trousers from my trouser block|
All of the fabric is from my stash, and only one of the patterns, the French Dart Shift, was purchased after the sewalong began, so I'm calling that a win!!
