To Sew-a-long or Not to Sew-a-long?

6:24 PM 7 Comments A+ a-

So Sunni of a Fashionable Stitch just announced that she's hosting a sew-a-long for Simplicity 1880. Ironically I just cut out the shirt dress version of this pattern last weekend to replicate the dress worn by the lovely Kiera Knightley. I was planning on working on it this weekend but now I don't know if I should wait for Sunni's sew-a-long. She's super knowledgeable and I reference her site all the time when I'm working on complicated projects. But I want to wear this dress soon. So, to wait or not to wait?

Why don't you make this one up right away, and pick out another fabric/view for the sew-along?

I would probably wait if it was me as am a beginner and I would find it exciting picking up the tips as I went along.

It depends - how you feel about your skills?
I love this dress, but my skills are not enough, I would wait for Sunni's sew-a-long - that is the rational me. Although I know that if I would have spare time and material, I would try...
