Once again fashion sewers, it’s time to set one sewing pattern in direct competition with another in our sew-along readers election.
Pull no punches and aim for that all important knock out blow, by choosing your favourite sewing pattern and casting that all important vote.
In our next sew-along, I want us to sew and create an elegant skirt, but as always, it’s up to you to tell me – WHICH ONE!
Again, I’d just like to give a BIG thank you to every single reader who takes the time to vote. It’s a great feeling to know you’re out there, interacting with Fashion Sewing Blog.
Introducing contender number 1!
The Butterick B5756 skirt sewing pattern is described as – A skirt that comes in two lengths with pleats, back zipper and side pockets.
