Sew Classic Clothes for Girls Tour: Stops 6, 7 & 8

Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: 20 Girls' Dresses, Outfits and Accessories from The Cottage Mama.

So I got a little behind posting about the ‘Sew Classic Clothes for Girls’ Book Tour this week. I’m in charge of Savannah’s Kindergarten holiday party, so I have been busy getting ready for that and just trying to truly enjoy this holiday season with the kids. We made several different Christmas cookies yesterday and have been having a wonderful time. They’re only little once, right? I’m sure you understand. But I’m back this morning to update you on where the tour is located and which blogs are doing giveaways for the book.

But before I tell you about the current blogs on the tour, I wanted to announce the winner from the giveaway here on the blog! The winner is……..

The Train to Crazy: Sew Classic Clothes for Girls Book Tour

My friend, Andrea from The Train to Crazy, was actually one of the first people to buy the book before I even asked her if she would like to join the tour. She is the creative force behind the ‘Go To Patterns‘ brand and ‘Go To Patterns Shop‘ offering her own line of patterns as well as a curated selection of patterns from other designs. Not only is she creative, but she might be the funniest person that I interact with in the online community. I love a girl that can make me laugh!

  1. I received your email yesterday evening after a long day of errands and shopping in a blizzard here in Utah. I replied with my address. I am so excited to receive this and begin sewing! Thanks and merry Christmas to you and yours.

  2. Hi Lindsay!
    Could you help me/ tell me how to modify your dresses to have long sleeves?

    I loved seeing your girls’ Christmas dresses. They are super cute, esp. the reindeer fabric! Did they wear a shirt under them?
    Thanks so much!
