Hello, Summer! The End of the SONP Sewing Challenge!
Well, we made it! Today is officially the first day of summer, and the last day of the Summer of No Pants sewing challenge. Today is the day we take our pants off!
And while I’ll be happy to get a little bit of my time back, I’m sad to see it come to an end! I know that I still have more skirts and dresses to sew, and I know that many people signed up and didn’t quite finish what they wanted to finish. That’s okay! I hope that those of you who were inspired by the challenge will continue to stop by and share your work in the SONP Google+ Community throughout the summer.
MY #SONP2013 PROJECTS
Here’s a wrap up of the dresses I made for this year’s SONP and where you can read more about them:

Dress #3 ♥ Dress #4
ENTER! ENTER! ENTER!
Here’s how to enter the Bernina + WeAllSew Pinterest Contest.
You have until this Sunday, June 23, 2013 at 11:59pm EST to enter your pins into the Google+ Community.
Re-pinning for the “People’s Choice” ends on Friday, June 28, 2013, at 11:59pm EST.
Remember that we will have two winners:
1) People’s Choice – One winner, based on the most number of re-pins.
The People’s Choice winner will receive a prize pack of goodies from Summer of No Pants sponsors including BERNINA, Colette Patterns, and Craftsy. Please be sure to share the pin that appears on the official contest board, as only re-pins from that board that will be considered.
2) Grand Prize – One winner, based on Judges’ Choice.
A panel of judges will choose one lucky sewist to win a BERNINA Bernette 46. Judging will be based on creativity, craftsmanship, fit and use of fabric and color.
