Selene Sewalong Starts Next Week

Want to sew Selene, and have the ability to ask questions and learn as you go? Join us for the latest Sewalong!

Together, we’ll be making the Selene Skirt in all three variations.

Our sewalongs are super in-depth, tutorial-based classes that you can have delivered right to your inbox. And best of all, they are free!

Use the sewalong to get more detailed instructions for Selene, including step-by-step photos. You can also ask any questions that pop up as you sew.


This sewalong will be taught by the amazing and knowledgeable Devon Iott of Miss Make. She will cover everything from pattern alterations to installing a lining.

The Schedule

The introduction to the sewalong will go up May 10th, along with the complete and detailed schedule of lessons. On May 12th, we’ll cover fabric and supplies.

The following week (beginning the 19th), we’ll cover some fitting guides and adjustments.

Lessons will be delivered every Tuesday and Thursday until June 30th, when we’ll finish up and share our projects.

Join in!

That is great! I have the pattern and three different fabrics I had planned for this. Now the hard part is going to be choosing which version and fabric to use. I have a fine wale black corduroy, a coral denim, and a emerald green twill. Decisions, decisions….

I am putting my vote in for coral denim! Sounds like a great summery basic.

I say all 3, perfect for the 3 versions Selene comes in!
