Aubrey Sew-Along // Day 1

Monday, September 26, 2016

Welcome to Day 1 of the Aubrey Sew-Along! We hope you have gathered your supplies. Today we are preparing our pattern and cutting out the pattern pieces. Let's get started! 

First, head to your computer and print out your pattern. Here are a few tips I like to use for printing:
  • Print the instruction pages on two sides (front and back). For the Aubrey pattern, these are pages 2-9. I like to save ink by not printing the pretty cover and inspiration pages, but that’s up to you. You may even choose to not print the instructions at all and have your digital copy handy while you sew.
  • Print the pattern pages 13-28 on a single side only. Check the pattern for page numbers if you are sewing a different view.  Make sure your scaling is set to “none”. 
  • Above all, utilize the test squares to make sure your pattern has printed at the full scale.

Cut the pattern pieces to your desired size. Be sure to include the gray/shaded areas in your cuts. Overlap the shaded areas, as indicated on the pattern pieces, and tape each piece together to form the full pattern pieces. Note the instructions on page 4 if needed for lengthening or shortening the dress. 

Use the pattern layout guide based on the view you are sewing to cut out your fabric pattern pieces. You will need the center front, center back, side panels, pocket, long or elbow sleeve or sleeve band, and neck binding. Be sure to transfer the notches and pattern markings per the cutting instructions on page 5.
