HI DARLINGS! Well, we launched SEW SEW DEF MAGAZINE, and the response has been amazing. I have taken on a lot of things in my life, but this by far was the greatest and the hardest, LOL! It took everything in my body to get it finished in time and although now that we have done the first issue I know exactly what to do, not do, and what to add to the next issue so it can be even greater! I can’t wait for you to see who’s on the cover!

Everyone has loved it, and I have had so many brands email about how great it is and how to get involved, including other sewing magazines which was really wonderful to see.

Today I thought I would share the modified version of the women’s PDF PATTERN you get with your issue of SEW SEW DEF MAGAZINE. Norris is posting then men’s PDF PATTERN on his blog NORRISDANTAFORD.COM

This is the SALDANA which is available for purchase HERE if you didn’t subscribe to the magazine and got her for FREE (although why wouldn’t you?) This is the modified short version which we talk about in the magazine, this pattern has so many options.

Thank you so much for always showing support! By the way, this rope belt tutorial is also month’st months isuue 😉

DSC00604 The Saldana pattern is the perfect High-Low T-Shirt or Maxi Dress. It is designed to be easy to sew, easy to wear and very chic. There are so many possibilities with The Saldana by simply mixing prints and colors. Along with the two variations that come with your pattern we also provide a quick and easy modification to get a third look from one pattern!DSC00559 DSC00573 DSC00658 DSC00549 DSC00578 DSC00665 DSC00561 DSC00584 DSC00612 DSC00593 DSC00625 DSC00568signature
