SLPco Lucy Sew-A-Long Day 1

Good Morning! My name is Katrina and I am so excited to be back as guest hostess for the Lucy Sew-A-Long! As you know, Lucy is the Pattern of the Month for May, so it’s only fitting that we do an SAL for one of the easiest summer patterns around!

For inspiration before we get started, please head on over to the Pattern of the Month blog post!

What to expect this week:

Day 1 – picking your pattern pieces and fabric choices!

Day 2 – Constructing the bodice

Day 3 – Constructing the skirt

Day 4 – Show off your piece – we’re done!

Yes, this dress is that easy. I will be throwing in a few links to a past blog post I did with the knit bodice version and you will see a variety of looks with my sweet girls in their various Lucy dresses.

Time to get started …

Let’s talk pattern. There are a few options for Lucy. We have the regular woven pattern AND the knit bodice pattern. What is your favorite? I can’t choose myself.

So, the Lucy back bodice has 2 options for you in both the knit or woven patterns. You can pick either the modest racer back and regular racer back. I have picked the modest racer back each time. Mostly because I was nervous about working with the various fabrics I chose. Even after 8 years of sewing, some fabrics still give me anxiety. Haha!

So, now you have decided whether you will be using knit or woven, modest or regular back … now start thinking about if you are going to add pockets, but we’ll get there later!

Here’s what I picked. I decided on rayon from the Thumbelina Collection by Hawthorne Threads! Isn’t it gorgeous.

Now make sure to join us in the SLPco Fan Group to share your photos for Day One. I will see you all tomorrow!
