1 Pattern, 7 Bloggers take two!



 photo 1pattern7bloggersbutton.jpg

Just over two years ago, 6 fantastic sewing bloggers and I collaborated for the One Pattern Seven Bloggers challenge. The idea was that we would each sew the same Burda pattern - but put our own twist on it! It was so much fun and something that we all enjoyed! Rachel was kind enough to give our little group a nudge recently with the idea of doing it all again, and the ball quickly began rolling for round two. 

This time we are taking things to another level. We are sewing up Colette Patterns Macaron dress, and hosting an amazing giveaway!

The lovely sewers I am teaming up with are...

And onto the giveaway!!!
