This is going to be a choose your own adventure type sew along. We'll each pick a vintage playsuit pattern and sew them up together. At the end of the sew along, we'll all have cute playsuits to wear this summer!
May is going to be the inspiration month where we'll talk patterns, materials and planning your playsuit.
June will be the sewing month although you are free to start sewing as soon as you have all of your materials! As a mini sew along within the sew along, I'll show you how to draft and sew up your own gathered dirndl skirt with a button placket. This will be kicking off in June.
For this sew along, we'll define vintage as 1920s-1960s but mostly I'll be focusing on 1930s-1950s because that's what I like.
While at least one piece of your playsuit must be you-made within the sew along time frame, feel free build your playsuit around a you-made or ready to wear piece already in your wardrobe. This is a great opportunity to rescue a wardrobe orphan or skip making a more challenge piece like shorts in favor of purchasing.
