THE sew-along

Welcome to our stretchy sew-along.

We have some fun trails ahead!

Sewing stretch is such an essential part of building a handmade wardrobe and often comes as a second thought.

Often quick to sew up, the barrier comes from not knowing what fabric to use or the few adjustments to make to use your machine for stretch.

So let’s dive in together, one week at a time.


Phase 1

This month we focus on fabric knowledge and key size skills.

Your weekly prompts are hiding in the tabs below.

To get extra clarity on this month’s steps, I’ve made a handy resource page.

Week 1 - time to vote
  Watch this video to discover the 3 designs to choose from.

This weekend, I want you to:
  • Investigate each style: Look at the style lines and check the size range.
  • Tell me by Monday which one you would like to sew most. (you can email or post in the Facebook group)
