Big News!

September 29, 2010



I'm so happy to announce that I've entered into a publishing deal to write a book based on 'A Frock by Friday'! The book will be a lot like our 'Frock by Friday' sew alongs but it will also teach you how to use different top and bottom patterns and adjust them to make your own designs. Bodice, skirt, collar and sleeve atterns will be included with the book.
 
It actually won't be out for another year and a half:( But I'll be working on it diligently for a whole year. But not to worry, I can incorporate my work into the blog. I'm making a bodice pattern now that I'm using to sew another dress next week. It's a great way to test my patterns out.

Anyway, hope you check it out when it's finally finished! I'll be giving periodic updates. And of course, thanks to all of you for your interest in my work that led to this book!

Speaking of A Frock by Friday, it's that time of month again! Stay tuned later for a FBF update.

Priscilla said... Best Blogger Tips

I am a newly wedded girl from Brazil who dreams about sewing her own clothes. I came across your blog after seeing your coffee date project on Burdastyle last week and not a day has gone by that I didn't check this blog of yours. I love it and you truly inspire me. I am super excited about your book and I KNOW for a fact I will have someone in the States buy it for me when it's ready. In the meantime I promise to try to sew my own frocks and embelish my knits and it it turns out successfully I will send you a picture!
Thank you!!
