Back in 2011, I took part in a very fun challenge called One Pattern, Seven Bloggers. Two and a bit years later we've 'reunited' to have another go! I'm relieved that this time round I'm much more confident in my sewing abilities - last time I was pretty nervous about the whole thing and my finished dress wasn't up to much.
So, what's the premise of One Pattern, Seven Bloggers?
It's pretty simple really! The seven of us are tackling the same dress pattern - the Macaron from Colette Patterns - which we can make in its true form, or adapt should we want to. We're hoping that our finished makes will showcase just how versatile any given sewing pattern can be. We also think it's interesting for people to physically see how patterns can be interpreted and to see how individual sense of style comes into play.
We're kicking off with an epic giveaway today, followed by an inspiration post on Monday 26 August and our big reveal on Monday 2 September.
Who's taking part?
Miraculously, despite the time that's elapsed, we've managed to secure exactly the same line-up as last time! Alongside little ole me, there's also:
Kat - Petticoats and Peplums
Rachel - My Messings
Sam - Buckingham Road
