I’m super excited to share with you guys the official kickoff of the #EasterSpringDress2017 sewalong.
Easter and the coming of spring are all about welcoming the new. Which I thought was also the perfect excuse for treating yourself to a new dress/outfit. So, I (Akram at Akram’s Ideas) have teamed up with Judith of Judith Dee’s World to host the #EasterSpringDress2017 sewalong.
The sewalong requirements are pretty lax as you can sew whatever pattern you desire and style, using a Spring/Easter themed print or color scheme.
Vintage Spring Inspiration
While the sewalong is open to all styles of patterns, I can’t help but think of classic vintage style dresses when I think of Easter. The flowy full skirts of the 1950’s are the first to come to mind. Along with the light cotton weight fabric and of course the pastel floral prints.
For this sewalong, I’ve decided to use Vogue 1397. While it’s not officially a vintage pattern the dress does have a lot of vintage inspired elements, such as a full lining and flared skirt. I also adore the pockets and tie back bow.
I’m super excited about co-hosting this sewalong and would love to see some super stunning vintage/retro styled projects.
