Jaime and I have both been dreaming of sewing ourselves a cozy winter jacket. We are hosting our first sew-along this January, and we hope you will join us in stitching up a winter coat! If you are local, we'll have a weekly sewing time at the shop for sew-alongers. If you are not able to make it to the sew sessions, share your progress and follow along on instagram, and get a weekly recap of our progress here on the blog throughout January. See all the deets about how to participate at the end of the post, plus a chance to win a crafty prize.
We have six coat patterns that are your contenders, and sew-alongers will get a 15% discount on the patterns. Jaime, instructor Sara Cougill and I will each be choosing a different pattern to work with. Sara has quite a few coats under her belt already, so we are glad she'll be here to share her knowledge and expertise. Follow along with our progress here on the blog, as we share our coat-along adventure, compare pattern techniques and share tips about the patterns we choose to sew. It will also be fun to follow along with all the participating sewists on instagram with the hashtag #fancysewalong.
We can't wait to sew awesome winterwear with you! What pattern will you choose? Clockwise from top left: Colette Anise, Merchant & Mills Landgate, Thread Theory Goldstream Peacoat, Grainline Studio Cascade Duffle Coat, Walden Albion, Closet Case Clare Coat.
