Sewing together as a group in times like these gives great distraction and can even relieve stress in the body.
Working with your hands creates a flow and connecting with each other as a community is even more powerful.
This is why I decided to change my online course into this Sew-Along. I never imagined sewing like this, together in an online group, is so much fun!

What others say about the French Couture Jacket Sew-Along:
Thank you Maaike! I'm having super fun, I never thought I would have the nerve to re-do so many steps to better the outcome. I'm always doing things too quick. Now I'm really enjoying the calm stitching and measuring.
Thanks Maaike, I can´t find words, how great is this sewalong. I love it and I´m happy now to start the next new tutorial!!! Thanks for all.
Maaike, thank you so much! It's just so fantastic to learn how to do this properly. With everything I do I feel the need to show it (to my husband or the dogs) and say: oh look how amazing, look what I've learned!
Hello Maaike, just started on lesson 3. It's nice to learn so much new techniques!
Maaike - Thank you for a jacket pattern that fits! I was expecting to just do the sew-along to learn the techniques and wasn't expecting to get a jacket I could wear at the end of it, so I'm now super exited to get going!
Thank you Maaike! I like this sew a long very much!! It was a long time ago when I sew a jacket. I like the combination of hand and machine stitching. Especially quilting the panels....amazing!
Thank you Maaike, I have a lot of fun to learn of your lessons.
I had been planning to make a French jacket for a few years, but it never came to pass. this course gives me a stick behind the door.
