note : this is the revised sewalong schedule and information.  Due to some issues with my rss feed most people were not able to see my posts for the last week.  As a result I moved the sewalong by two days to get everything back in order and reposted this schedule. In my opinion sewalongs are one of the best parts of sewing with indie patterns.  I know that I have learned a lot from watching the people that I look up to sew up their own patterns.  I have made close to ten versions of this pant during the drafting / testing phase and have learned a lot during the process.  I kinda feel like I could sew them with my eyes shut now.  So hopefully this sewalong will help you make the best possible version of the Hudson pants for yourself.

Sewalong Schedule

Monday June 30th – Fabric and Notions Tuesday July 1st – Sewing Knits Wednesday July 2nd – Printing, Assembling, and Cutting Thursday July 3rd – Sewing the Pockets Friday July 4th – Sewing the Side Seams and Crotch Monday July 7th – Sewing the Waistband Tuesday July8th – Sewing the Ankle / Calf Band Tuesday July 22nd – Last day to enter the Hudson Pant Sewalong Contest Thursday July 24th – Winners Announced!
