It’s a big day! Day Four of the Agility Tank and Dress is finally here and we’re going to begin the process of making tank and dress versions with the overlay.
It seems there has been a little confusion. Normally, when I plan a Sew Along I separate the tutorial out into five section of gradual sews. The Agility is just a little different in that it has so many options. Here’s what I needed to cover:
- T-Back Bra ONLY
- Strappy Back Bra ONLY
- Nursing Bra ONLY
- T-Back Tank/Dress with overlay
- Strappy Tank/Dress with overlay
- Nursing Tank/Dress with overlay
That’s A LOT!
This meant I had to separate things out a little differently, It also meant that participants may not need to sew every day, they may just sew one or two days depending on the option they chose. Due to the list above I separated it into the following sections:
- Day One: Print, Assemble and Cut Fabric
- Day Two: T-Back and Strappy Back Bras ONLY
- Day Three: Nursing Bra ONLY
- Day Four: Tank & Dress – Are you making a tank/dress? This is the day for you
- Day Five: Finish Up and Photos
With that said, today is day FOUR and we’re starting our tanks and dresses!
