Summer of No Pants 2012

My good friend Lou from over at Lou’s Labors has started a challenge to create enough skirts and dresses that she doesn’t have to wear any pants this summer. Her deadline is June 20th, the official start of summer. Since we’re both trying to develop our apparel sewing skills, I’m going to join her! Here’s the first pattern I’m working with:


I’m making view D, the coral one. Mine will be a green and white fabric that is currently being prewashed.

I’m going to try to stick to one skirt or dress a week, because I also have several accessory projects in the works.

Happy sewing,

  2. I think this is such a fun idea. I wish I could join you! But alas, no time til June when school is out. Maybe I’ll start then. Have fun!
