Callie Wrap Dress sewing pattern Sew Along



I am so excited about our Callie Wrap Dress sewing pattern SEW ALONG that starts on Monday! Thank you so much to our fabulous sponsor, Evelyn Lee, of Seweird Fabrics!! She has so graciously sponsored the sew along and is giving away one $25 store credit to her shop! $25 of fabric!! Yes, please!! Go ahead and check out her fabrics to plan out all the beauties you would get if you win!!


Want to join the sew along?



Each day we will do a few steps and by Friday you will have a finished dress to wear out next weekend! Can you believe it? Yes!! It's that simple! Instead of worrying about finding all the time to print, cut fabric, sew, hem...we are going to split up all that work so you can do this in just 20 minutes a day! 





Here's the plan:


Monday: Print your pattern, assemble pattern, cut your size

Tuesday: Cut out your fabric 

Wednesday: Sew shoulders, band or hem neckline, attach sleeves if adding them, sew side seams

Thursday: finish up bodice if needed, then attach the circle skirt

Friday: hem sleeves and circle skirt and you're done!!


Post a finished picture to our fb group by Wednesday, 7/24 to be entered to WIN a $25 store credit to Seweird Fabrics from Evelyn Lee (one winner) and 3 free Seamingly Smitten sewing patterns! Plus, 2 other winners will each receive 3 free Seamingly Smitten sewing patterns, too!I cannot wait to see what you all make!


CHOOSING FABRIC for your Callie Wrap Dress


Let's talk fabric choices! For the Callie Wrap Dress pattern you want to choose a soft knit with great drape such as double brushed poly, silk jersey, bamboo jersey, rayon jersey, poly/lycra blend, cotton/spandex/bamboo/lycra blend, ITY knit or similar. 


Seweird Fabrics has double brushed poly HERE, ITY knit HERE, rayon spandex HERE or all fabrics HERE.


Evelyn sent me this beautiful DTY (not brushed) poly/lycra fabric that is super soft and has the most perfect stretch for this dress! You can find it HERE



My other favorite that she sent me was this poly/lycra that has the same stretch as the one above and the listing picture just sold it to me!


I hope you have fun shopping for your fabrics and meet me back here Monday to print, tape and cutout your paper pattern pieces in your size! A few steps a day and you are on your way!
