I have to be honest, doing sew-alongs are a TON of work, and the only thing that kept me going was the hope of seeing finished dresses from those of you following along! So please, tell me there are some finished dresses to see!
I had originally had the parade of dresses date for Monday, December 16th, but as I you read this, I am off in cold and snowy Michigan visiting my family, and when I get home I will have very little time to get them up by that date. So, in the spirit of making it a tad easier for me, and possibly getting a few more finished dresses from all of you, I'm going to change that date to the following Monday, December 23rd. But as I will need your images before then, please send me your images in one of the ways listed below by end of day, Saturday December 20th.
Also, I'm in the midst of teaching the Emery Dress right now at Sew L.A. and our last class is Sunday, December 22nd, so in addition to all that you send me, I will have my student's finished dresses too!
Here's how to get me your images:
- Email photos to me directly at info(at)christinehaynes(dot)com (please use Emery Dress Sew-Along Photos in the subject line)
- Upload your images to my "Christine Haynes Patterns" flickr pool
- Post them on Instagram with the hashtag #emerydress (please note, if you just tag it #emery I will likely not see it as that pool is full of a ton of random stuff!)
- Blog about it and send me the link!
Oh, and did someone say bonus giveaway? Heck yeah! As extra incentive, I will send a goody bag to one of the people that sends me their images in one of the ways listed above! It will be a Christine Haynes Patterns tote bag with fabric, sewing magazines, vintage buttons, and all kinds of goodies inside! You know you want it.
So there it is! You have until Saturday, December 20th to finish up your dresses, photograph them, and get the images to me in one of the ways above. I can't wait to see what you've all done!
