This is the place to find out everything you need to know about the Reader's Pick Sew-Along!
Here are links to each of the steps we covered:
What is the Reader's Pick Sew-Along?
It is a sew-along where the reader's vote on which pattern they would like to see in a sew-along. Then reader's also vote on which fabric they would like to see used by Julie in the sew-along.
What did the reader's pick?
It was a close race between a dress pattern and a pants pattern. The winning patten was New Look 6097. This pattern was on Pattern Review's Best of 2013 list. To see what patterns were in the running check out the blog post highlighting this.
What fabric did the reader's choose?
Reader's voted on which fabric they would like to see Julie use during the sew-along. Whether they chose it because it was a cool print or if they wanted to see ITY or rayon knits in action, they could choose the one they wanted to see. To see what fabrics the reader's had to choose from, check out the blog post highlighting this.
When does the Sew-along start?
We will start sewing together on April 7th. Julie has already talked about advice on what fabrics to use with this pattern. Read about it here.
How do I interact in the sew-along?
Interaction with the reader is most important to us in this sew-along. We're giving you two options to share photos of the fabrics you chose, progress photos and finished garment photos. We set up a Flickr group so you can share all of these photos. Don't have Flickr? That's ok. Comment below, including a link to your blog or other photo-sharing space.
