The Maple Skirt can be a bit intimidating for beginners, so I am going to do a step by step sewalong throughout next week. Each day will cover a part of the pattern with photographs and far more detailed instructions than I have room in the tutorial for.
There will be inspirational posts by a few talented bloggers and an opportunity to win prizes by linking up your completed Maple Skirt.
Day 1: Choosing your fabric
Day 2: Adding the pockets and everything you wanted to know about buttonholes
Day 3: Assembling and sewing a waistband
Day 4: Buttons and finishing up
There’s also a fun prize pack up for grabs! One sewalong participant who posts their completed skirt in my Facebook Sewing Group will be chosen randomly to win 3 pattern of your chance from my shop and a $40 gift certificate to one of my favourite fabric stores: L’Oiseau Fabrics. They carry a wonderful selection of euro knits, wovens, and trims. You’ll hear more about them throughout the week.
If you don’t have a copy of the Maple Skirt yet, you can use the code MAPLESEWALONG for 25% off.
Looking forward to sewing with you!
