It’s Day 6 of our Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways, and we have two more awesome prizes to give away! April Rhodes is a pattern and fabric designer and is also one of this season’s super-talented guests. She is generously donating two of her lovely patterns for today’s prizes. One winner will win a copy of the lovely and versatile Staple Dress pattern, and the other will receive the The Riding Peplum & Party Dress pattern. I’ve made my own Staple Dress and I highly recommend it; it’s such a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Plus, get sneak peek at April’s episode from the upcoming season!
But first, congrats to yesterday’s winners of Christine Haynes’ patterns and book! They winners are Kristina, Tina L., Alexis, Judy H., Arianna and Ashley P.! Check your inbox for more details.
When April visited Sew it All, she demonstrated how to stitch up a very cute and on-trend paper-bag waist skirt with in-seam side pockets. April showed how easy it is to insert in-seam pockets into any skirt or dress, even if the pattern doesn’t originally include it! And really, who doesn’t love pockets?
