Dottie Angel Frockalong

Hi all,

I am happy to announce that Cassie and I are co-hosting a little sew along featuring the Dottie Angel frock, simplicity #1080.

I posted on Instagram a few days ago to let people know where they might be able to buy the pattern - At the moment and finishing today sewingpatterns.com has simplicity patterns for USD$2.99, this is where I got our patterns from. You can also buy from simplicity.com for about 40% off rrp. I also found a couple of patterns on Etsy. If you need help finding the pattern let me know and I will do my best to help.

Starting early December we are going to do some tutorials on our blogs to help you make your own Dottie Angel frock. We are planning to cover the basic construction of the dress as per the original pattern and also show you some modifications that you might like to try to make the dress your own.

I have even lined up a guest interviewee who will tell us how to do a variation that she has done. So it will be a very exciting time!

Here is my first Dottie Angel frock! I wore it on a very hot day here in Brissie and was quite comfortable all day. So I'm very happy with it and can't wait to make a couple more with you!

I hope you will join us!

Make it sew, Jess

Cute frock and cute model. Unfortunately I don't think I will play along as we are heading into winter here .

I've been looking for something like this! It's heading into winter where i am too and I still want to follow along. My cardigans will just get some extra usage.

I have the pattern, hoping to join in. Really busy with building work in my house, fingers crossed I find some time.

looking forward to this sew along, i have 2 different fabric options ready to go. i've only made 1 dress for myself previously, it was knit and it was a disaster, i keep it in the closet as a reminder of what not to do. I'm very new to this and i don't get a lot of the terms they use in the patterns i really hope you get into as much details as possible. And Thank you for hosting this sew along it's going to be great!
