Just a quick note today: If you haven't already done so today, hop on over to the Curvy Sewing Collective, where I've written a guest post all about shopping for knits with a wrap dress project in mind:
Wrapalong: choosing your fabric (and fabric discounts!)
If you're unfamiliar with the Curvy Sewing Collective, the CSC is a collective blog from a group of gorgeous, fabulous curvy-figured sewists. Articles have a focus of sewing for a curvy figure and body positivity. I highly recommend checking them out.
Additionally, the CSC is gearing up to host a sewalong starting in a few weeks. The sewalong will be for that iconic, curve-friendly garment, the wrap dress. In conjunction with the sewalong, they've posted some great discount codes to one of my favorite online fabric stores (Gorgeous Fabrics) and a new-to-me but very enticing store, The Smuggler's Daughter.
In sewing news, I finished my HotPatterns Torque Top a few days ago but haven't taken pictures yet. It's a fun top and a fun pattern. I'll post my full review once I've gotten the top photographed. I've also started on a knit polo dress for my daughter. The dress has a contrast polo placket, and I've never done this sort of placket before. It's sort of giving me fits. I think I've figured out what my big problem is, though and am hoping that after some seam ripping, the rest will go smoothly. If the dress turns out as cute as I'm expecting, I'll be using this pattern again, and hopefully the placket will only take 1 or 2 attempts next time instead of 3 or 4.
