In Fall For Cotton

Fall For Cotton Final Project Video

That’s a wrap! This video marks the official conclusion of the 2013 Fall For Cotton Sewalong. Thank you to everyone who participated and sewed along with us! Seeing all of the projects in one slideshow is pretty awesome, so I hope you enjoy watching it as much as Wil and I enjoyed putting it together.

I tried really hard to include at least one project from everyone, but please forgive me if I left someone out. It certainly wasn’t intentional! With over 260 members and 600+ photos it was slightly overwhelming to sort through it all, but obviously it was worth it! Be sure to check out the Flickr group for even more photos, and group discussion.

So what’s next? Well, Tasha has been cooking up something pretty special for all those 40’s lovin’ knitters out there, and I’ll be bringing back Sew For Victory in the Spring!

Thanks again for joining us for another fantastically fun sewing challenge!

*Edit – my apologies to Sarah! I missed her photo in the Flickr group (So sorry, Sarah!). You can see her finished dress:  here.*




  • Thanks so much for the video and for launching this sewalong! It was great to see all the lovely projects!

  • That was a Fabulous video, I really enjoyed watching it! Thanks for compiling us all in there and hosting the great sewalong.

    I think I just watched six minutes and fourteen seconds of pure talent!!!! I am so blown away!

  • Fantastic video ! Thank you !

  • What a great way to exhibit the talents of so many sewers! Thank you for hosting such an inspiring event and the video is the icing on the cake. Good luck in the Craftsy contest.:-)

  • Wow this is just so outstanding! Thank you both for hosting such a wonderful sew-a-long. It has been so inspiring to watch!

  • This video is such an incredible look book of sorts when it comes to vintage styling inspiration. Whether one is a sewer or not, it’s impossible to see all of these wonderfully attired folks rocking their diverse array of handmade looks and now find one or more that you’d like to emulate yourself.

  • That must have taken forever! Thankyou, it was lovely to see

  • Stunning video! I’ll watch it again tomorrow as a treat/break in the day. I’m off to order some V for Victory fabric and brush up on my knitting skills : )

  • Thank you Rochelle and Thank you Will!!! The video is wonderful, I saw some outfits here that I had somehow missed in the Flicker pool! Your music selections were great (as usual). I found myself thinking as I clicked Play, “I wonder what songs I’m going to get to hear.” :o)

  • Bethany

    I wish had taken part in this. I really miss sewing my vintage patterns and cotton fabrics.

  • Thank you so much for hosting this, It was very fun seeing everyone’s creations, and I LOVED creating my outfit.

  • Melissa Borromeo

    Thank you Tasha and Rochelle, and all of the inspirational contributors!

  • A very lovely video! So much inspiration. I hope you host this event next year in the fall time.
