Earlier this week, while skimming through a few of my favorite blogs, I saw that Sunni of A Fashionable Stitch is hosting a sewalong for the new Ginger Skirt by Colette Patterns. I was a fan of the Ginger skirt ever since I saw it, but it wasn't until I saw Sunni's blue floral version that I was completely sold.
I know it was the piping and buttons that did it for me. According to Sunni, the pattern booklet, which is geared toward beginners (whew!), includes helpful hints such as adding piping and pockets. I've been wanting to participate in a sewalong for quite sometime now, and this one seems to be the perfect fit for me. It's geared to the beginner sewist, such as myself, and seems quick enough to sew up, so I can finish it in a short amount of time, if needed.
I immediately hopped on over to the Colette Patterns site and purchased my own pattern. It arrived yesterday and I can't wait to get started. All I need to do now is figure out what fabric to use. Oh, the choices! If you are interested in participating in a sewalong, I suggest you look into Sunni's Ginger Sewalong. I'll keep you all posted as I make my way through the pattern!
