After a lovely, but very full weekend (when are they not?!) I am feeling ready to face this week head on. I have a rather exciting project to share with you, as well.

Sarah has arranged one of the most inspired wedding presents I've seen, for Roisin who is getting married this year.

The #sewdollyclackett sew along is going to be a chance for anyone who sews to join in and create a dress in the style of Dolly Clackett. Contestants will sew as many dresses as they like, in Roisin's style and she will pick the winners.Simples, right?

Sarah has arranged some excellent prizes, including gift vouchers from Berylune and Harts Fabrics, and patterns from Christine Haynes, Sewaholic, and Colette Patterns. She will be opening a Flickr group where people can post their entry (ies) and from which Roisin will pick the winner.

I'm trying to decide what my most Clacketty fabric is, and which style of dress to go for, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be joining in. I hope you will be, too!


  1. I can't wait to see what you sew! Thank you for taking part and for being such a lovely friend <3

  2. What a fantastic idea! I've been needing a massive boot up the backside to get myself sewing again and this is ideal. Can't wait to see what everybody produces.
