May 17, 2017   /   byRachel Le Grand  / Categories :  Feeds

One of the bonuses you get with Liesl’s sewing patterns is that you get sew-alongs with step-by-step photos and extra tips and tricks. And we’re happy to announce that we have another sew-along planned. This time it’s the new Liesl + Co. SoHo Shorts. It will take place May 29-June 2, and we have a special guest contributor who will be leading you through the sewing. It’s coming just in time for summer!
