The Jamie/Marissa Sew-A-Long Wrap-up!

If you have been reading the blog you know that we have had a Jamie/Marissa sew-a-long going on recently! We had our lovely seamstresses add their pictures to an album in our facebook group and then everyone had 2 weeks to get a picture loaded into the album to be eligible for a prize, this time around the prize was a 3pattern pack!

I LOVED every one of the gorgeous entries in our sew-a-long album!!!! (As you can see by the awesomeness below there is a reason random picks our winner!). 

We had 81 GORGEOUS entries and here are just a few of them :) I absolutely love how this pattern looks great on everyone, little girls and ladies from xs to 3xl!  

Both the Jamie (womens) and Marissa (kids/tween) dress patterns can be found in our Etsy shop
