Hello Friends it’s my favourite day of the week – Sewing Community Project day! – and I’m so happy to be introducing you to the very lovely April! April and I got to know each other through Instagram, and I’ve loved getting to know her better through in person events like Frocktails. She is an absolute joy of a person, and I love following all the things she is making for herself and her gorgeous little girls. For our community project, April made a beautiful and incredibly simple hack of the Darling Ranges dress using the Seaweed Linen from my store. This dress involves such simple alterations to the pattern that you could totally replicate this yourself at home with very little effort. First she sized up for a loose fit, then she sewed down her placket and sewed buttons on the bodice only. The sleeves are just cuffed, and the hem is shorter. That’s it! I told you it was easy and I just love how it turned out!
I really hope you enjoy reading all about April’s project, her sewing journey and how she interacts with the sewing community!
