NVL Fun in the Sun swim suit sew-along!


Get ready! It's time to prepare for fun and sun this summer and what better way to do that than to have a sew-along! I'm going to be making the super cute repro I recently listed in my store and I welcome you to join me.

For this sew along, I'm going to make the suit as is as a mock up just to figure out everything, then go into altering it and grading. I've started a pintrest board where I'll list a lot of progress pictures.


Banners galore!!
There is still plenty of time to grab this pattern and join in. 
Yay sewing!!!

  1. OH! So exciting! I haven't bought the pattern yet, but I'm seriously considering it though it will require some grading on my part. Can't wait to see what the finished product looks like!
