Dear Sewing Friends,

How wonderful it is to create a varied summer wardrobe from one adorable pattern! Kathy Dykstra’s “Melody” Vertical Smocked Sundress from our latest issue allows you to do just that. It sews up beautifully whether you are making a classic, heirloom, or whimsical version. Check out this blog post to see three unique variations of this dress. The pattern and instructions for the dress are included in our new Summer 2023 issue of Classic Sewing.

There is still time to join us for our Sew Beautiful Online Licensing course! This class includes so many wonderful projects and techniques. If you have any questions, read this post with answers to our most frequently asked questions about the course.

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!
