We narrowed down some options and put it to popular vote in our Facebook Fan Group, and we couldn’t be happier that the Modkid Avery Dress won out! Avery is a drop-waist dress with a fitted bodice, a super full, twirly skirt and three sleeve length options. The pattern also includes fun variations, like a mini pocket and belt loops.
The sew-along with be September 29th – October 3rd. So put it on your calendar now! Between now and then we’ll be posting inspiration, what you’ll need, the schedule, and prizes. During the sew-along we’ll tackle a few steps each day to take you through the pattern.
Patty has a new twist in store for this sew-along!! In addition to an Overall Participation prize to be awarded at random, there will be a prize for the Best Costume (think Halloween) and Most Creative Use of Materials. We want to see both ends of the spectrum: pretty dresses and over-the-top costumes! We’ll be showing a little inspiration over the next couple of days and give you the full contest details when we show you the prizes.
