Jocole M&M Sew Along

Jocole Mix & Match Sew Along

Are you ready?  We are giving the Mix & Match series a go for this sew along.  I'm excited to break down the process to make it all clear.

I am making a little dress for my daughter.  In order to create a Mix & Match Dress you need several pieces from the series; a bodice, sleeves and bottom.  I needed the following pieces:

Radiant A Line Bottom

Classic Sleeves (I'm also going to add the flutter sleeve on top of the classic sleeve.)

We will combine all of these pieces to make a cute little dress.

Today we will print, assemble the pattern pieces and cut fabric.  When you have all the pieces cut and assembled, we still need to do some piecing to make the pattern work.  You can see in the picture below that I have placed the Basic Empire Bodice above the Radiant A Line pattern piece.  The fabric will be cut as one whole piece with these two pattern pieces together.  Be sure you are lining up the fold for the bodice and bottom on the same side.  

The bodice piece is turned toward the wrong side (in the photo) to line up the fold sides.  Cut one front and one back piece and two sleeves.  If you are making a dress that the bodice and skirt are separate pieces, you will need a front and back for each piece.

This is what you should have so far.

Here is the schedule for the Sew Along for the week of November 17- 21:

Monday - Print, assemble pattern, cut fabric
Tuesday - Sew bodice or dress front and back
Wednesday - Sew sleeves
Thursday - Finish
Friday - Share creations to enter for a prize

I hope you will join us in the sewing group if you have questions.

Let's get sewing!
