Back to School Month + A New Monthly Challenge

Back to School Month July 2020 + A New Monthly Challenge

Hello fellow sewists, and happy July! One of my most favorite occasions to sew for is back to school. We are homeschooling this year but you better believe that I will still be making my littles adorable little back to school dresses. In fact, I’m extra excited because this year they can actually wear them while we do schoolwork and my husband won’t cringe thinking about them getting their pretty dresses messy at school.

We have curated a list of our favorite patterns for Back to School Sewing. We hope you’ll join us in this months challenge!

The Monthly Challenge

All month long we are featuring a select few patterns from our collection, which will be on sale through the months end. If you decide to sew along with us, you can sew up one of the featured patterns and post a modeled or flat lay/mannequin photo in our fan group (or on instagram) with the hashtag #SLPcoChallenge for your chance to WIN a $20 credit!
