A Note from the Editor: Here’s What You Need to Know About Our Latest Happenings

Kathy McMakin, Editor of Classic Sewing magazine

Dear Sewing Friends,

Gail Doane’s Scallop Dress and Quilted Jacket from our latest issue is the epitome of classic sewing for little girls. In true Gail fashion, she has designed this incredible ensemble with the most wonderful details—from the scallops and smocking to the piping and covered buttons.

We have two new digital patterns available to purchase in our online shop: the Basic Button-Front Daygown & Slip and the Basic Button-Back Daygown & Slip. Both patterns offer many design variations, and the sky is the limit on ways to embellish them. They are the perfect palette for your creative juices to flow.

I hope you are enjoying sewing the new 2021 Doll Club projects. If you haven’t signed up for this year’s club yet, we invite you to join the fun. Connie Palmer has created a precious wardrobe of clothes and accessories designed for an 18″ doll.

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!

Kathy McMakin
