Sew along with Glenda the Good Stitch and her Holiday Happy Top. This interesting bodice design features dolman sleeves, angel wings to finish them off, and a unique design that hides the bust fitting dart in the horizontal seam that sews two complimentary fabrics together. 7 lessons - view as many times as you want.
What materials do I need to participate in this sew along?
You'll need your Sure-Fit Designs Dress Kit and a Designing Stylus. You'll also need some pattern tracing medium like our tracing vellum. If you don't already own these items, you'll be able to purchase them http://www.surefitdesigns.com/Dress-Kit.html.
Do I need to participate in this Sew Along at a specific time of each week?
No. Once you've enrolled for this Sew Along, you'll be able to access all the lessons at one time. Why is this? I don't want to dole out one lesson per week because some of you may want to get this top sewn up much faster than that. This way you can sew at your own convenient pace.
Is there a time limit as to when I need to finish the Sew Along?
No. Once you've purchased a Sure-Fit Designs Sew Along, you'll have lifetime access to it with no additional costs.
Can I contact Glenda the Good Stitch if I have a question?
Yes, there will be a contact link at the bottom of each lesson. I'll get back to you as soon as feasible. Most of you already know that my turn-around time for answering customers is usually on the same day of your question, but we're going into a hectic couple of months so please be patient with me.
Are any of the lessons in video format?
No, not for this Holiday Happy Top. You will receive 2 downloadable instruction guide sheets for both the pattern preparation and for the sewing construction steps. But I plan to give you the Go Everywhere Shirt as the next Sew Along and that will be primarily video lessons.
When enrolling in this Sew Along, do I need to set up an account?
Yes. Initially you will be asked to supply your email address and you'll need to create a password. The password makes the account uniquely yours. And your email address let's the software communicate with you.
Do you have more questions?
