February 2016: Jacket Season

February 2016: Jacket Season

Happy New Year, all! We are officially back from our Holiday Hiatus, and ready to go!

First up, we have some changes. Sew-alongs are going to happen every other month, so your next sew-along will not be until April, here is a small hint for you – Ankara.

Moving on, you will still submit your looks, but please submit them by the 14th of the next month, so they can be showcased on the 15th.

So the due date for Feb. 2016’s sew-along is March 14th!

Next up: The Rippin’ Ain’t Easy Sewing Competition. If you would like to participate, click here.

Now! Our first sew-along of the year led by Miesha (@miesharoshawn) is the amazing jacket from Hey June Patterns. Click the image to be linked.

A message from Miesha:

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you all enjoy and participate this month’s sew-along. I really enjoyed this pattern, and the only thing I challenge you to do is make it your own. Choose a funky color, or use interesting zippers. Put a little you into it, that was my favorite part! Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
