Welcome to the Coco Bra Sew Along! My name is Stephanie, and I’m your host. Be sure to follow along with the sew along in The Styled Magnolia Custom Fabrics Facebook Group. If you join the ‘event’ under the ‘announcements’ tab at the top left of the facebook group, you won’t miss a thing.
The Coco Bra Pattern is available on the Jalie Patterns website. The PDF pattern is on sale for 10% off, this week only, by using the code COCOSEWALONG.
This is an intermediate pattern. If you have a few easy activewear projects under your belt, (think leggings, a top or tank top) I have no doubt you can sew this pattern. And I am here to help!
Sometimes Jalie Pattern instructions are rather brief. After the pattern released, they created a blog post tutorial on their website, in full color. Click here to read the tutorial. I will be sewing the crossover bra, as shown in the tutorial.
A cash prize of $50 towards a purchase at The Styled Magnolia Custom Fabrics will be awarded to one sewist. To enter, finish your Coco Bra and post a picture (lay flat photos are just fine) with the hashtag #cocobrasewalong in The Styled Magnolia Custom Fabrics Facebook Group. A random winner will be chosen among the entries.
As a second incentive for finishing, every person who finishes their Coco Bra, posts with the hashtag AND used TSM fabric for their projects, will receive a retroactive discount on their fabric purchase. (Please contact the shop owner via email to receive the discount after the sew along is over.)
*PLEASE NOTE: You do not have to use TSM fabric to enter the sew along and the sew along prize.*
SEW ALONG KICK-OFF VIDEO:
Here is a Facebook LIVE video to kick-off the sew along, which I reposted on youtube. (You won’t be able to see the comments unless you view the video in the facebook group.)
Sew alongs are nice for daunting projects. Don’t look at me like that….I know you have seen projects and thought “I can’t do that!” Well, maybe you could, maybe you just need an extra push! Sew alongs are also great for busy people! You can accomplish a lot by sewing a little each day.
Here is the breakdown of tasks to complete for each day of the sew along:
I am so excited to see your journey to a new sports bra! If you need assistance, post in the event and I will try to help. Also feel free to read my previous post/pattern review on the Coco and my experience sewing it up for the first time. Click here.
