Well my friends, i think it’s time to get ready for our next sewalong – the Banksia top!
I adore this pattern – it’s one of my wardrobe staples – and there are so many customization options!
For this sewalong i really want to explore a lot of the ways you can change up the Banksia to get a different look – as well as the standard instructions. I have a feeling i might end up sewing like 10 versions uh ohhhhhh can you say panic? hehe
I’m planning on structuring it much like we did for the Darling Ranges dress sewalong – first pattern alterations, then sewing. I’ve already got some ideas on what pattern alterations i’ll be covering, mostly ways you can alter the pattern to get even more mileage out of it – and obvious ones addressing different body types – but i’d also like to know what pattern alteration tutorials you’d like to see!
What Banksia alterations would you like me to cover in the sewalong? Please let me know in the comments! Obviously i can’t do everything, but if there’s any obvious theme i’d like to include it!!
Oh and did i mention there’ll be a coupon code for the length of the sewalong… and starting NOW? i know. Awesomeness.
Just enter the code BANKSIA at check out to get 10% off the Banksia pattern for the next few weeks! (it’s the last step in the checkout process)
I’ll be releasing a full schedule soon – with the plan to begin the sewalong towards mid September. I know that seems far away, but i wanted to give you enough time to order the pattern and fabric etc before we start. Shipping from Australia usually takes 1-3 weeks (though it’s been averaging around 1.5 weeks recently, yay!) – so if you need to get the pattern before we start there is heaps and heaps of time!
Have i missed anything? EXCITED!
