Our Samantha dress is a fairly easy and quick pattern to sew, aimed for adventurous beginners. We tried to create a booklet with instructions as clear and comprehensive as possible, but sometimes you need to see some things in action to be able to wrap your head around them better. So, we prepared two sewalongs for you. The first one is a video sewalong (click on the image below to watch it) , where we are showing you how to make Version 1.
The other one will be a series of steps, posted here, on our blog. We will show you step by step how to make this Version 2 of the Samantha dress.
Here is the sewalong schedule:
April 20st: How to print and assemble your PDF pattern
April 24th: Making the darts and sewing the shoulder seams
April 26th: Making the neckline binding and collar
April 28th: Finishing the neckline
April 30th: Assembling the bodice and the skirt
May 2nd: Joining the bodice and skirt
May 6th: Our testers’ versions
