While Perfect Pattern Parcel #6 is going on, another exciting event is in progress: this week of Frocktober is Giselle dress week at The Monthly Stitch. Look at Nikki‘s gorgeous jewel tone border print Giselle:
Best of all, Juliet, one of the lovely Monthly Stitch bloggers leads you on a series to sew a Giselle dress together with her. It’s a sew-together, or an almost-sewalong! Here are others’ Giselles for inspiration, how to assemble the PDF version of the pattern and cut out the pattern pieces, how to assemble the bodice, midriff, and ties, and how to sew the armholes or sleeves, and finally, how to attach the skirt, add elastic, and hem your new dress. Juliet also created a calendar page too, including a reminder to submit your entries to the giveaway by midnight, October 25 UTC (Universal Time Coordinated, formerly known as Greenwich Mean Time, also known as Zulu military time – perhaps my favorite option…). Contest details here.
Can’t wait to see what you make!
