Wendy Dress Sew Along Day 1

Welcome to the SLPco Wendy Dress Sew Along!

The SLPco Wendy Dress is the August 2018 Pattern of the Month, so it’s ON SALE for the entire month – no code needed! We invite you to join the SLPco Wendy Dress sew along!

This is a classic dress that can be used for everyday wear or fashioned for special occasions. The pattern includes optional Peter Pan collar, inseam pockets, and skinny belt. The pattern also includes four sleeve lengths with a cuff option. Truly a dress for all seasons! And I have to say, the attention to detail is amazing. The inside of the dress is just as beautiful as the outside. The design lends itself well to mixing and matching patterns and prints for a truly unique dress. Every little girl needs a ‘Wendy’ in her wardrobe!

And I have to gush on the fabric I used! Blend Fabrics is our sew along sponsor (THANK YOU), and I am thrilled with the product. I love that they design their fabrics in collections – each fabric having unique and lovely coordinating fabrics to easily accent your main fabric choice. They do all the hard work for us! Surprisingly, the fabric came out of the dryer ready to sew (or wear) with NO WRINKLES! You have to love that! Please be sure to check out their site and visit a brick and mortar store or online retailer to purchase your Blend Fabric lovelies; you will love the quality!

We hope you choose to sew along with us!
