Index of Posts for The Summer of No Pants 2011!

Woo-hoo! That’s it for the Inspiration portion of the Summer of No Pants! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of my guest bloggers for all of the hours spent putting together fantastic tutorials, scouring the Internet for inspirational round-ups, and reviewing patterns for my readers. And special thanks to the SONP sponsors for offering such fun giveaways! Please support these small business owners and take advantage of some of the great promo codes that will continue as the sewing challenge begins.

Now it’s up to you to take all of these beautiful tutorials and round-ups, roll those ideas around in that creative mind of yours, and rev up those sewing machines!

Join the Flickr Group and share your projects. Introduce yourself, tell us what worked, what didn’t work, and share your blog posts about your new wardrobes. I’ll be showing off our projects here over the next four weeks! And remember, this is a personal challenge, so it’s cool if you miss a week, or if you get the bug and need to sew more than four pieces-do what you can, sew what you want, share what you did, just get out of those pants!
And just in case all of that isn’t enough, you can also check out all of last year’s Summer of No Pants posts. I did some extensive round-ups of different skirt styles with lots and lots and lots of tutorials.

Thank you all for coming along with me on this challenge! I can’t wait to see all of your skirts and dresses!

And just in case you missed anything, here is a complete index of all of the posts from the past two weeks for The Summer of No Pants!
