Spotlight on: Sew Caroline!

We have a special guest on the blog today – please welcome Sew Caroline! She’s sharing a gorgeous dress she made using Stella-S304 Navy from our brand new Ludlow collection. Take a look below!

And be sure to stick around until the end because we have an exciting GIVEAWAY!

—————————————–

Hi Dear Stella Friends!

Caroline here from the sewing blog, Sew Caroline. I’m so excited to be here today + honored that the lovely ladies behind the Dear Stella blog wanted little ole me to write a post over here! I got a sneak preview of the gorgeous line that will be hitting stores at the end of this month, Ludlow, and MAN was I blown away. I chose to have a bit of the cotton shirting fabric sent my way and thought the perfect thing to sew would definitely be the Belladone dress from Deer and Doe. It’s been sitting in my “unsewn patterns” pile for quite sometime, so I was happy to finally have an excuse to sew with it- yay!
