We’re so glad to have you join us for the Aster sewalong! Together, we’ll be making all three versions of this lovely collarless blouse.
This sewalong will be co-taught by two of the ladies from Colette Patterns: me (Sarai) and Haley. You can read more about us on our blog.
I’m the founder of Colette Patterns, and I’ll be making version 2 of the blouse (the one with long sleeves). Haley is a professional sewing teacher, writer, and the managing editor of Seamwork magazine. She’ll be walking through the short sleeve and flutter sleeve versions.
How it works
Our sewalongs are simple. We’ll publish a series of posts detailing each step in the process of fitting and sewing your pattern. You can sew along with us, ask questions, and share your techniques and advice with others.
Feel free to leave comments here on the blog, or join our Sewalongs Facebook group to post thoughts, questions, and photos. We try our best to answer as many questions as possible, but encourage you to jump in and help each other out as well.
We’ll start this week with a discussion of fabric and supplies tomorrow.
Next week, we’ll talk about cutting and fitting, including bust adjustments.
The week after that, we’ll begin the two week long sewing process, with posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The sewalong concludes on August 7th with a chance to show off your makes.
Please note: The Aster pattern contains errata, which should be noted in an insert with your pattern. If you did not receive the insert, see our errata page for the details.
