Join the Dahlia Sewalong!


Just a quick note to let you know that the Dahlia sewalong is just getting started over at our Sewalongs site!

Don’t worry if you’re not quite ready yet. This is just the introduction, and you’ll have two weeks before we even start sewing. In the meantime, Devon will begin talking about fabric and pattern adjustments.

You can see the full schedule over there, sign up for free delivery-by-email of each lesson, and ask any questions.

If you participated in our last sewalong, you know that Devon is an amazing teacher with clear instruction, great photos, and a very responsive and warm personality. So head on over and join us!

By the way, this sewalong is being sponsored by our friends over at Stitch 56. Helene put together this amazing page with fabric recommendations from her shop for you, so support an independent retailer and check them out. Her selections are to die for.

Is Dahlia back in stock? If not when will I be able to order the physical copy.

Dahlia is out of stock until mid-November, unfortunately. We sold out in about a week! The best thing to do is get on our list so we can notify you when it’s back in stock.

Does the Dahlia printable pattern have a wide format version for printing at a copy shop? Thanks!

Yep, it does.

I’m excited for my first Sew-along ever. Maybe I can knock this dress out for Thanksgiving or least for Christmas. I’m dreaming of plaids already! :)

I just want to say, I really like that you host your sewalongs on a separate site, and I wish more blogs would do so! And obviously, I can’t wait to make my PLAID Dahlia!!! :)
