Update 2/1/2021: An updated Upton Sewalong is available here.
Welcome to the Upton Dress sewalong! I’ll be taking you through the construction of both views of the Upton Dress – though of course you can mix and match the bodice fronts, backs and skirts to your heart’s desire. Here’s what the schedule will look like:
31 May: Inspiration & styling suggestions
2 June: Cutting, marking and prepping the bodice
4 June: Sew bodice shell and lining
6 June: Attaching bodice shell and lining
8 June: Sewing the skirt
10 June: Sew pockets, skirt side seams, and attach bodice
12 June: Insert zip and finish back seam
14 June: Finish lining and hem
Then at the end, we’re going to have an Upton Party! To participate, take a photo of your Upton (bonus points for party poses) and then tag it with #UptonParty on Instagram or Twitter, add it to our Flickr group, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to enter is 14 July and then we’ll do a fun round up post.
