Our New York Minute Dress Pattern Sew Along has come to an end already – it really did fly by in a New York minute! We enjoyed seeing your sew-along makes, giving you tips on fabric choices and pocket options, and showing you some fun modifications to the pattern including the scrunch neck and hi-low hem. Remember, those instructions are here on the blog whenever you might want to give them a try! If you didn’t get a chance to pick up your pattern, you can still grab it at the discounted sew-along price through today!
Here’s the sew-along recap:

As is our tradition, we now bring you a parade of participants’ lovely creations!
Two-way sequins are my favorite! So fun and super blingy on Sue’s beautiful wintery NYM! TDD <3’s you too, Sue!
Amy made a cozy NYM with Minnie fabric and the perfect accents of black ribbing.
Carol’s cutie is ready to play in this NYM with a fun print and stripey accents.
Marie, we love that you went with the dark pink after polling group members, it looks great!
Shana’s girl is adorable in this classic look! I want one just like this for myself!
Amanda’s first time sewing fleece had a super cute result (though hard to go wrong when your model has this much personality)!
Judie made two fabulous New York Minute dresses. The second one’s modified with a pop of pink zipper to accommodate fabric without much stretch. Bravo for ‘make it work’ moments!
Elaine’s dress has pandas and a pocket! We also love her make-it-work brilliance after accidentally cutting sleeves the wrong size – a little ribbing and a cute cropped length!
Sonya made these two great New York Minute dresses featuring sew-along’s hi-low hem and a sew-along inspired cowl neck!
Crystal also did a take on the sew-along scrunch neck, making a cozy folded turtleneck for her sweetie!
So much cuteness in this hedgehog-printed french terry NYM by Cathy!
We love this absolutely STUNNING embroidery on Inma’s Christmas-themed NYM!
Laura famously made this first NYM in 45 minutes on her girl’s birthday morning! Then she made two more, one more in cotton/lycra and one in minky-backed fleece with a hi-low hem.
Can you believe Linda made these mostly with scraps and leftovers? No kitten!
One last thank you to our fabulous sponsors, and congratulations to the randomly-chosen winners: Sue who won a $50 gift certificate to Raspberry Creek Fabrics, Shana who won a $50 gift certificate to Cali Fabrics, and Laura who won a $50 gift certificate to Imagine Gnats!
