#getsetsewapril - Make a Dress
This month we have a #getsetsew with a difference!!
As you may know we started our #getsetsew challenges as an antidote to our Sewing Bee chats ending, and with the new series of the Sewing Bee starting in May we will be returning to our weekly Bee chats and pausing #getsetsew during May and June .........or will we????
So this year we've decided to make the #getsetsew challenge for April a little bit different. The challenge will be set as usual but the opportunity to enter your makes will last until the end of June. So you have a whole thee months to join in 😀 and still fit in the Sewing Bee chats 🐝
#getsetsewmarch is all about the dress! And that is the only stipulation. You can chose to make any style of dress, use any fabric you want, make one for yourself, a family member or maybe a friend, as long as it is a dress!!
As always, for some inspiration we have put together a few of our favourite dress patterns that may help to get you started to think about what you'd like to make. We will also be adding a resource file into our Stitch Sewcial Facebook group, so please add any other pattern ideas you have into this too 😃
These are just a very small seletion of all the hundreds of dress patterns that are available. In fact the foldline has more than 2000 dress patterns in their library that can be filtered by style, size, fabric, sewing level etc, so you can find the perfect dress for you 👗😊
Sew it's time to #getsetsew. We are relly loolking forward to seeing yorumakes for this challenge. Don't forget to use the hashtag #getsetsewapril when you post pictures of your makes in the Stitch Sewcial Facebook group. And most importantly don't forget to post the pics in the #getsetsew April album to be in with a chance of winning a small prize. The album can be found under Media > Albums from a computer, or by clicking on the three lines at the top left side of the Stitch Sewcial Facebook group page.
