Over the month of June, I will take you through all the steps to make the many variations of my new Lottie Dress & Shirt pattern! It is not a difficult pattern, but as I designed it for beginners and beyond, I want to give those first-time garment sewers a helping hand while they make their own versions at home.
Since it's a pretty quick sew, I will be writing three posts a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the whole month of June. The Lottie pre-order patterns are going out next week (get yours now to be included in the first delivery!) so this will allow time for you all to receive your pattern, think about supplies, and get ready.
The full schedule is below, so mark your calendars and sew along with me!
