Sewing Dares! And Polka Dot Alma

I have been hearing about these sewing dares going around. Linky link: Sewing Dares! I took to Twitter and set myself up for this challenge. Here’s what I got from Crafting Rainbows (start reading tweets from the bottom).


So I’m accepting the challenge. I am going to stitch up my blue lace.


What do you think? The blue lace underlined with pale blue.  Remember I had a hard time deciding what to do with this lace.


Butterick 5782 is the pattern. I love the full skirt and bow at the neck.

As far as the B portion of the dare, I am considering a giveaway. I just have to decide how it will happen.  Suggestions?


I am also working on my Jumpin’ January goal of stitching up an Alma Blouse. I worked on it a little at a time over the last week. Sunday night were the Golden Globes and I was sick but managed to interface my facings and stitch the belt. I hate stitching a belt at the end of the project. Most times I end up skipping it. I thought I’d get it done first!


Have you been dared as part of the Sewing Dares! challenge?  Tweet @GillianCrafts if you’d like to join in the fun.

  1. I think my mom has some of that red polka dot fabric. I’m quite sure it’s one of the fabrics she is using for infinity scarves. I have Alma and I know which fabric I want to use but it’s a bit down the list on what to sew. I look forward to seeing your Alma.

    I understand the hesitation with that blue lace. It is lovely and I think that dress is a good pattern for it.

  2. I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog. It’s an award designed to bring more viewers to the blogs with fewer than 200 followers! 😀
