Hello lovely people! I have two quick and fun announcements for you today:
First up, I’m teaching an Curvy Wrap Dress Weekend Sewing Intensive class at Workroom Social in Brooklyn! Come and join me on May 14/15 (10am – 6pm) and make yourself the ultimate stylish-yet-comfortable Appleton dress.
You’ll get help on fit and construction, there will be snacks, and I have no doubt that a good time will be had by all. It’s aimed at beginners who want to learn more about knits and perhaps even make their first dress, and intermediate sewists looking to expand their skills. So, if you fancy a 2 day sewing vacation and a weekend of fun, you can check out more details about the class and register here.
Second, with Valentine’s Day coming up, the mind inevitably turns to: what looks pretty damn hot, and yet still allows you to eat chocolate cake for dessert? The answer, my dears, is the Appleton Dress Polka Dot Kit dress!
So to help you get ready, it’s 20% off using the code VALENTINES until February 14th. (Already got the pattern but want the fabric? No worries, there’s a fabric-only kit here).
And for all my single ladies… why, it’s the perfect Galentine’s Day outfit/self-gift! Leslie FTW. My life hero. Clever, over-enthusiastic women who are absurdly dedicated to their friends will always have my heart. Obvs I can never meet Amy Poehler because if she isn’t 100% like Leslie my heart would be crushed.
