SHOW-A-LONG

We’ve had many requests to do a certain type of sew-a-longs AND the most popular has been to do a themed SAL and one that is based on a television show! The most requested show is….

Drum roll, please!

To create a  garment from The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel! I’m excited to say that our February 2019 SAL will be just that!  Once we decided it was time to do this SAL we did a poll to ask if you all wanted to do specific garment or a choice from a selection of options. The winning poll selection is to choose your own garment. The idea of this SAL is to replicate an outfit, though it doesn’t need to be an exact replica, please show us your inspiration from the show and your finished garment.

You will find the sew-a-long over at https://www.facebook.com/groups/killerkitschvintagewips/.

As always, here are some links to both self-draft tutorials or places to purchase patterns to help you along! Please feel free to use your own patterns as well.

The SAL will run from February 1 to 28. As always, if you post on Instagram please tag @killerkitsch13 and use hashtags #killerkitschsewalong #mrsmaisel-a-long.
