1 Pattern, 7 Bloggers Returns & A Massive Giveaway!

Ladies & Gentleman, due to popular demand the amazing, the fantastic, the fabulous 1 pattern 7 bloggers is making a comeback!!!  Are you excited? I know I am.  Two years ago 6 other bloggers and I all got together to sew the same pattern.  It was an experiment in how different sewers with different styles would interpret the same pattern.  It was a lot of fun and there were a lot of great dresses made.  I am so happy to be back together with these lovely ladies having a crack at a new pattern.

Just in case you have forgotten, the lovely ladies I will be teaming up with are my fellow Aussie lovelies - Reana Louise, Sam from Buckingham Road and Rachel from My Messings.  The lovely Jennifer Lauren who is currently in Australia but soon to be headed back to her home country of New Zealand.  Over in the glorious UK is the supremely talented Marie from A Stitching Odyssey.  And last by most certainly not least, all the way from the US of A is the gorgeous Amy of Sewing Through the Motions.
You can probably tell from the little logo above that this time we will be sewing the adorable Macaron dress by Colette Patterns.  I have made this pattern once before way way back in 2010.  It was very early on in my sewing journey which is evident by the horrible finishing on the dress.  Despite this I got a lot of wear out of the dress but it has sadly fallen apart now.  On a side note - how bad were my photos back in my early blogging days.  Yay for better cameras and improved skills!

We'll be back next week to share some inspiration for our projects and then revealing our finished macarons the following Monday.  But in the meantime we have a giveaway!!!
