Ladies, to say I am excited for this Sew-a-Long is not even the half of it!  With so many family and friends right in the thick of these horrible storms, I am welcoming the chance to take my mind off of all this mess and stress!!   Alexandra to the rescue!  For those who are new to our SAL's, WELCOME!!  I am so happy to have you here!  Our VFT Sew-a-Long group has grown like {crazy} over the past 8 months, and I am beyond overjoyed at the response we have received.  So glad you all are loving these monthly get togethers as much as I do!

Ok, so let's get back to business.  Today is the best day {in my humble opinion}.  Today we get creative and brainstorm!!!  But first, make sure you have purchased the pattern!  Use code AlexandraSAL to purchase your copy at a discount!  

Now for the fun part.  Let's start planning!  If your stash is anything like mine, you probably have a few gems hidden away waiting for the perfect pattern.  Last fall, I pre-ordered some AMAZING fabric since I knew my daughter would be starting Kindergarten, and I've been holding on to it, just waiting for the day to come.  Well, today is the day!!

I am in LOVE with this fabric line from Heather Givans!  Literary may seriously be my most favorite fabric line!!  I adore everything about it!!  And it is perfect for my book worm Kindergartner!  

I am thinking the collar will be in this blue and white large dot, because I am a sucker for dots!  And I found this lovely gold scallop trim I bought a few years back at Target, and I think it will look amazing under the pintucks!

Think about all the options this pattern has and figure out what version you are going to make!  I decided on a dress with pintucked bodice.  Go big or go home, am I right?!?!?!  I am thinking this will make the perfect school photo dress!

Once you have decided on your fabrics, trims, etc, grab your camera and snap a pic!  Upload it into our Day 1 album!  For those who are participating for the first time, everyday I will post a daily album.  Take 1 photo of your progress for that day and post it in the album.  Make sure you are following along with the daily blog posts.  At the end of the SAL, I will choose 1 random winner to receive an amazing VFT prize package!!!  Tomorrow we will be assembling and cutting fabrics!  See you all back here tomorrow!

Is your trim a vinyl?
