Just wanted to do a quick check in this morning and let you all know that the sew along for the Fashion In Harmony Magic Bias Dress has begun. We decided to postpone it by a couple of weeks since we did an extra post on the pockets for the Pepernoot coat, and to give me just a bit of breathing room between the 2 sew alongs. Whew!!!
So, the first post is up and you can find it HERE on the Sew News blog.
I always enjoy adding a little something extra to the sew alongs. For the Magic Bias Dress, I thought I would play around with some pattern blocking, as well as a little color blocking. For the pattern blocking, I've decided to use the coordinating prints that you see below. I purchased them quite some time ago from Britex in San Francisco. Love that store by the way :) Beautiful fabrics. Thank goodness I don't live in San Francisco!!! As you can see, depending on how the prints are assembled, they take on a very different look. I think I'm going to have fun playing around with them. For the color blocking, you'll have to wait until next week to see what I've chosen ;)
If you've stayed with me to this point, I have a nice little surprise for you. Sew News has a 20% off sale going on. The sale is store wide, so if you have not purchased your own Magic Bias Dress pattern, now's your chance to save a little. The Promo Code is 20SERGER Be sure to hurry though as the sale only runs through tomorrow, April 20th! You can find the Magic Bias Dress pattern HERE. The pattern is on back order so it won't ship until May 5, 2016, but at least you can take advantage of the sale.
