Cabo Halter Sew-A-Long Details


So excited about this!   As I mentioned earlier, we are preparing to begin a sew-a-long for this gorgeous top for the summer!  The dates will be April 10-13…That gets Easter and Spring Break out of the way…and we finish on a Friday, so you can wear it out on the town for the weekend…that is if you have a life.  If not, you can always just put it on and sit on the couch and watch TV like me  Smile

Here are the plans:

April 10:  Tracing and cutting out pattern.  Cutting fabric  

April 11:  Sewing the bodice

April 12: Installing the zipper

April 13: Finishing

(UPDATE: You can purchase tracing paper HERE or at any office/art supply store) 
You can buy the pattern online at any of these links (It is a paper pattern so make sure you allow enough time to receive through snail mail by April 10th):

Or, just do a Google search and you’ll find tons!

My plan is to make 2.  The first one will be in a quilting cotton (which is what I will use for the sew-a-long instructions.  For the second,  I am going to try a different type of fabric…  Any suggestions?

I encourage all of you to purchase an easy fabric to work with, something easy to sew like quilting cotton (especially if you are a beginner), and make sure to post your fabric choices in the Flickr group so we can all see!

I will post steps here on the blog and extra pictures in the Flickr Group.  I want you to post your pictures too, if you ‘d like.  Don’t be shy.  The more pictures we see, the more motivated we all are, right?

Join our Flickr Group if you are in and we will all cheer you on too!

Don’t forget to use the discussion forum to ask any questions you might have too.
