knit lazy susan sew along schedule

okay ladies - here it is. a rough schedule to follow for the sew along next week! i will post each blog in the morning on the day scheduled. make sure to join the brownie-goose lovers page on facebook so you can share your construction, ideas, questions, etc. 

if you are just now joining in on the fun - welcome and check out this blog post for more information on the sew along next week and details on knit and where to purchase the pattern. :)

monday july 22 - lined bodice: cutting and bodice construction for a lazy susan knit bodice that is lined. perfect for those thinner knits. here is an example of a lined knit bodice.

tuesday july 23 - flutter trim bodice & drop waist: cutting and bodice construction for knit bodice that is not lined but has "flutter" trim along neck and arms. perfect for thicker knits. here is an example of the bodice constructed with the flutter trim.

i will also go over how to drop your waist for a different look to the dress as shown here.

wednesday july 24 - attaching skirts to bodice: i will be going over tips/secrets in attaching a gathered woven skirt to the knit bodice, as shown by photo here:

 i will also go over how to make the skirt in knit and attach to the bodice as shown in this photo.
AND on this day (ie get your beauty sleep we have a lot to cover!), i will show you how to attach a paper-bag style skirt TO the bodice. i used the taylor skirt by the mean princess. it is one of my fave patterns. so very, very versatile. i will not, however be going over the construction of a paper bag skirt. here is a photo of the skirt attached to the bodice. 

thursday july 25 - details and pockets: probably my fave part, addressing the details such as buttons and large pockets.

i am getting super excited! got lots of loose ends to tie up, work on photos and also get this blog sew along ready!!

I was wondering what the name of the floral fabric is that you used in the skirt with the striped bodice?
