Our Lemon Drop Dress Sew Along has come to an end and we hope that you have enjoyed it as much as we have! We have loved seeing everyone’s progress as they sewed along and are so proud of the many of you who went out of your comfort zone to stretch your sewing skills. The overwhelming favorite sew-along bonus option was those pretty flutter sleeves and we love how you made them! Remember, the instructions for the hi-low hem and the maxi length Lemon Drop are here on the blog whenever you might want to give them a try. Here’s the daily recap:
- Selecting Your Fabric
- Day 1 – Fitting and Pattern “hacks”
- Day 2 – Add on Flutters and Constructing Bodice
- Day 3 – Placket, French Seams, and In-Seam Pockets
- Day 4 – Maxi and Hi-Low Hems
- Day 5 – Closures and Giveaway
Well usually we call our end-of-sew-along showcase our “parade” but maybe because it’s 106 degrees here today I am thinking we should have a Lemon Drop Shower instead!
If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops, oh what a rain that would be …
Let it rain – your beautiful Lemon Drops!
Kicking off the shower is one of two Lemon Drops that Jen the Tie Dye Diva made during the Sew Along! A lot of people were asking about this adorable fabric and we’re happy to share with you that the collection is called Snowflake Waltz by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics and you can grab it from our Sew-Along sponsor One Red Blossom Fabrics while it lasts at this link: http://www.oneredblossomfabrics.com/Default.aspx?manufacturer=Blend%20Fabrics&collection=Holiday
Many other sew-alongers also chose a classic hemmed-finish Lemon Drop:
Others loved pairing the sew-along flutters with the ruffled-hem finish for extra ruffly goodness!
Congratulations to Christina who won the $35 gift certificate from One Red Blossom Fabrics, to Meagan who won the KAMsnaps pliers and snaps kit from KAMsnaps.com and to Casey who won a little bonus prize of sewing goodies from the Tie Dye Diva stash including fabric, vintage trim, and buttons.
Enjoy your Lemon Drops!
