Frocktober – Introducing the Sewaholic Lonsdale

It’s October and that means it’s Frocktober!

Oh yeah! 😀

This week we are kicking off with the Sewaholic Lonsdale.

Last month I shared some great Lonsdale inspiration from around the blogosphere and I hope all those fabulous dresses got you excited enough to join me back here tomorrow for our 5 day Sew with Us series.

We’ll be spending a short time each day sewing up our Lonsdales so that in less than a week you’ll have your very own to photograph and post here for your chance to win two PDF patterns from Tasia at Sewaholic.

Here is a quick rundown of each day:

Day 1: Cutting and starting the bodice
Day 2: Completing the bodice
Day 3: Attaching the waistband and POCKETS!
Day 4: Skirt and zipper
Day 5: Hemming and final photographs, yay


The Lonsdale competition runs from 4 October 2014 (00:00 UTC) until 11 October 2014 (24:00 UTC) and the winner will be chosen by Tasia on October 14th.

Gather your supplies and meet me back here tomorrow, see you soon! xx
