Are you game for sewing a shirtdress this season?! Come sew along with us as we lead the McCall Pattern Company Shirtdress Sew-Along over the next couple of months.
For this sew-along you’re welcome to use any current shirtdress pattern from McCall’s, Vogue Patterns, Butterick or Kwik Sew. You can use a vintage pattern of ours if you’d like, though we may not be able to answer questions specific to old patterns.
Take a look at our Shirtdress Board on Pinterest for pattern ideas and sewing inspiration:
Now’s the time to get your pattern as we’re hosting an all-brand online sale today through Sunday, May 1. Shop:
We’ll discuss fabrics for your shirtdress in a coming post, but in the meantime be on the lookout for lightweight cottons, chambrays, shirtings, linens, and lightweight woven blends. Tip: The less wrinkling from your fabric, the better.
What do you think about us also hosting a Shirtdress Sew-Along Facebook Group in conjunction with this? This would be the place to go to post comments, questions, and to share your status updates.
Let us know if you think you might be joining us for this sew-along. It’s a go-at-your-own-pace kind of thing, so if you don’t have time now you can always read the posts and sew later. No rush! Next week we’ll aim to post a Sew-Along schedule, so stay tuned.
