day one: kcw october 2015

Welcome to the first day of KCW! I’m always nervous on the first day. Will people sew along? Do they like the theme? I never know until the first day. But oh my goodness, this might be the best first day ever. You are absolutely killing it right out of the gate!

day one: kcw october 2015 // featured garments

1. louisa coat by Stannel 2. school belle skort by Audrey 3. play dress disguised as dolce & gabbana by Miranda  4. what does the fox say pajamas by Maartje 

This collage shows four different takes on the DISGUISE theme: a dress pattern disguised as a coat, a skirt that disguises some fantastic shorts, a simple dress disguised as a designer’s creation, and cute little foxes wearing disguises! Why do I ever doubt you? I should know by now that you are an amazing and talented bunch of sewers. Every season you wow me more than the one before!

Now, I know these sewers did not whip up pjs and dresses and coats in an hour. But once they got started I’m guessing they couldn’t stop. So if you are staring at a pile of fabrics right now, don’t get discouraged. You might sit down and get so excited about what you are making that hours pass and you don’t even notice. The only thing that matters is that you start. Take it one day, one hour, at a time.
