"Fall For Cotton" - My First Sew-Along

Today I decided to join many other sewers with this lovely sew-along! This is just made for me, as it's no competition (I wouldn't dare), and I love both vintage patterns and cotton fabrics! 

This is really a great idea, as I think cotton is one of the most versatile fibers for garments. So if you are interested, have a look at the original post at Lucky Lucille and join us too!

What you have to do:

- Join the Flickr group Fall For Cotton and introduce yourself in the discussion
- Pick a pattern that helps you recreate a garment from your favorite vintage decade: 1920′s through 70′s

- Pick any fabric that’s 100% cotton
- Start gathering supplies now, with a plan to start sewing on September 1st
- Have your finished garment photographed and uploaded to Flickr by the end of Monday September 30th
- One finished project = one chance to win some awesome prizes at the end of the sewalong! - See more at: http://luckylucille.com/2013/08/fall-for-cotton-a-vintage-sew-along-for-cotton-lovers/#sthash.8s87PxWT.dpuf

I have no idea yet how it all will work out, having two kids and trying to finish my project until Septemer 30, but somehow I certainly will make it.

And I have tons of cotton fabrics for my children sewing projects. The only problem is to find one I have enough of. I would like to make a dress from a vintage fabric I ordered some days ago, but I'm sure it will arrive rather late to start as soon as necessary to finish in time.

I have already a certain pattern in mind, one of those I recently bought... 


  1. Hello Doris ;) Just wanted to stop by and say hi! So happy I am not the only sew-along-debutant :) Can't wait to see what you will sew up!

    Happy sewing!

  2. Hi Siri, thanks for your kind words. Yes, it always feels good to know there are others like you and me. I'm not a beginner as a sewer, but I never had the opportunity to compare myself and share my results with others, so this is going to be very exciting!

    I just posted my pattern and my fabric this morning on the Flickr group. I was unsure until yesterday what to make, but then I told myself I HAD to make a decision. And I think it was a good one.

    I would be glad to keep in touch with you!

  3. don't feel bad, I'm right behind you! I just cut my pattern out last night & already re-thinking it ! lol!
