McCall's 7622 - #sewpurpletoendalz

Hello everyone and HAPPY SUNDAY! Today I am sharing my most recent make which is McCall’s 7622, and this is not only my most recent make but this is my contribution for the challenge that is being hosted by Michelle of Michellesewsagain, and the challenge is called #sewpurpletoendalz! Note: If you prefer to WATCH a more detailed review, you can do that by clicking here! Also, the video includes a detailed Look Book!

Michelle is hosting this challenge because October marks one year since she lost her dad to Alzheimer’s, so she thought it would be a good month to host a challenge that raises awareness and hopefully money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

If you want to participate in this challenge, all you have to do is sew something PURPLE between the dates of Oct 1 - Oct 31. You can sew ANYTHING purple for ANYONE so make sure you post a picture of your make on Instagram and use the #sewpurpletoendalz and tag Michelle @michellesewsagain to be entered to win one of FIVE PRIZES, and she also asked that you tag the sponsors, which are: @rebeccajpage & @stylearc

Michell is also raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association by donating a dollar for every entry of the challenge but not to exceed $500, however, her goal is 1,000.00!!

If YOU would like to donate money, Michelle has set up a tribute page for her father and you can click on that link to donate and I will put that link below. You can also visit Michelle’s page to get to the link as well!
