I am so excited to announce that I will be participating as a co-host with The McCall Pattern Company and another sewing/fashion blogger Lucinda Campbell (Sew Wrong) for a Wrap Dress Sewalong. As you may know, the wrap dress was made famous by designer Diane Von Furstenberg. The sewalong will give you an opportunity to follow along with others and make you own DVF inspired wrap dress!
