This pattern is awesome! It's so perfect for anyone wanting to upcycle clothing! If you are experienced with knits and love sewing them (like I do) then you're going to really enjoy this pattern. If you're brand new to knits and you're looking for somewhere to get your feet wet, this is a perfect place to start!! The pattern includes a TON of tips on working with knits and Stacey has also included directions on how to sew this using a sewing machine or a serger. I promise you, it's easy and quick! The hardest part will be deciding which tee shirt and fabrics to use.
Here is a copy of our schedule for your own planning purposes. Feel free to ask questions or even work ahead if you'd like!
How about a little inspiration to get those wheels turning... the sky is really the limit with this pattern, and there are so many options! You can make a dress (seen below with two skirt flounces or one):
How about a paneled skirt?
What if you don't have a girl to sew for? Well then, you'll want to head over to Hailey Bug's Closet on Craftsy and download the FREE (what the what?!) add-on for boys!
As if all those reasons aren't enough to join me in our sew-a-long... Stacey is also offering up prizes to the top two creations! The first place winner will receive a pattern of their choice from Stacey's shop AND a yard of knit fabric to go with it and the runner up will also get to pick a free pattern as well! So come on, what are you waiting for?? Join me in Stacey's Facebook Group for the latest and greatest. I'm so looking forward to sewing with all of you!
