It is time to admit – every single “Oh, did you really make it yourself?” is an extra point to your self-esteem basket. And I get it, I am exactly the same: I love to dress up, I love to sew and I also can not live without a good competition once in a while. In this case I treat sewing like a sport: you master your skills, you set yourself a dead-line and you strive for success.
This month I am all set up on sewing business casual. To see what I have in mind – sneak peek on my Pinterest “sewing to do list” . But apart from that I have discovered couple amazing sewing blogs:
- Ever wondered how to make your own undergarments? This lady has all the answers at Cloth Habit
- All things sewing over here at Sewaholic – it is a good resource full of sew-alongs and pretty stuff
- Shirt dress sew-along, anyone? You got it at Grainline studio. Check it out, bunch of useful information and sew-along starts on August 6th!
My main objective this month is Burda’s Ultimate ButtonLovers Sweepstakes! The idea is to submit a garment that has lots of button elements. If to be honest, I am not choosing this competition for the sake of winning, not at all. I had many ideas of how to play around with buttons in my outfits, but never had time, or right fabric/materials to make these designs come to life. I believe this could be a perfect opportunity to try out something new and tackle my imagination!
