Aside from dress hemming (which I’m working as hard as I can to get everything done in time!), I finally had a chance to sit down and take care of some of the details to get this thing rolling. So here’s the plan:
The official dates are going to be this Friday, September 6 through Sunday, October 6. But if people need more time, that’s completely ok! My own plan is ambitious enough that I might need more time myself, depending on how many Saturdays I get stuck working this month. (I already know I have to do an open-to-close shift this Saturday, and I do have a cousin’s wedding to attend next Saturday, so it’s not looking so good…)
I also went ahead and started a Flickr group.
I did attempt to make a button. I am a complete idiot when it comes to html, apparently,
and multiple tutorials and blog button generators have not yet generated those cool buttons with the code box underneath, and I apologize for that. I will try to figure it out, but I did promise my husband I’d spend some time with him today. So for now, I’m just going to share the graphic. I apologize, and if anyone has any advice to offer on how to make this work, I’d appreciate it!
Edit: Thanks to advice on Twitter, namely from Melissa, and this tutorial, got it working. Yay!
Since this is a looser sewalong than many, as in we’re not all necessarily working on the same pattern, I’m going to work on putting up some posts that will hopefully prove helpful–fitting help, discussions relevant to certain patterns that are already out there, etc. I’m certainly going to be looking for information on the Sewaholic Thurlows, and the Colette Juniper/Clover pants–any other patterns I should look for?
Anyway, feel free to comment here and/or in the Flickr group to sign up, and let’s get this rolling!
