Gingham Sew Alongs

Here I am getting off the plane last weekend in my gingham sew-along.



Isn’t she gorgeous in her gingham dress?!

So classy. Right up there with Brigitte Bardo, Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn rockin’ their gingham.

And so is my friend, Linda “gettin’ her gingham on” in these refashioned shorts. (Be sure to notice the shoes, too. Aren’t they great!)


Linda found a pair of too-small, but very well made gingham shorts. She solved the size issue by taking off the waistband, adding an embroidered-floral insert at the sides and a wide black elastic at the top.  She even added the waistband to a cute top she had. She didn’t waste a thing.

I love this!


Carissa from Carissa Knits sewed along with us this week and knocked it out of the park again with her amazing dress refashion.


I love how she saved the Ralph Lauren tag. And that bias trim! Oh La La!


Delain Miller refashioned this gingham shirt into a cute apron this week.

    I LOVE gingham, I always have! My black and white studio has gingham cushions, a gingham curtain, and my favourite reusable shopping bag is one I made out of the same black and white gingham. Vive le vichy!

    Love the floral add to the gingham shorts. So cool!!!!

  4. Why Beth, you look so fabulous fresh off the plane! 😀 I adore gingham for my boys. Making gingham shirts for them is such a joy. I can never seem to find the right color gingham for me, but when I do, a shirtdress is so happening.

    Saved the Ralph Lauren tag. Oh you guys crack me up, you are so creative. I need to sew a zipper into a skirt, I’m sure it will take me half a day.
