Allie J is taking inspiration from the elaborate dresses and fascinators worn to British weddings and incorporating a bit of drama into her dress. Ooh, we love it! Allie is leading the sew-along for McCall’s M7684.

Brittany is using Pinterest to corral her style inspiration and fabric choices for her wrap dress pattern. We recognized Goodbye Valentino wearing Brittany’s sew-along pattern, Butterick B5850.

  1. What happened to Lori and Vogue 1536? So disappointed this has been taken out of the sew a long!

    1. Lori had a family emergency and asked us to substitute another blogger. Please feel free to make her choice as it’s a good one!

  2. I’m so excited that Monica joined in and is doing V9292. That pattern shot to the top of my list when it came out.

  3. For the wedding sew along contest how do I register or submit an entry. What are the prizes? When are winners notified? Thanks!
