There have been so many beautiful skirts and dresses entered into the Summer of No Pants Flickr Pool. If you haven’t checked it out lately, you should pop on over and see them all. Here are five of my favorite entries from the first two weeks of the challenge:
This is just a handful of the skirts and dresses in the pool! It was hard for me to pick just five! By the way, you are NOT too late to jump in on the challenge. We are early in week 3 and there’s a whole other week after this one. You can still squeeze in one or two skirts. You know you’ve been thinking about doing it, so do it!
Also be sure to check out the blog posts that the SONP participants are posting. Many of them are putting up tutorials and/or writing reviews on the patterns that they used. There is so much inspiration to be found on these blogs! You can always access the SONP Link Party by visiting the SONP 2011 tab at the top of this blog.
If you haven’t heard, there is another fun bloggy skirt competition going on over at Crafterhours. If you are already participating in The Summer of No Pants, you should definitely check out Skirt Week 2011. Be aware that the competition is for skirts only, not dresses. But any skirts that you have made for yourself or for a child since July 1, 2010, are eligible for the competition. And there are lots of cool prizes. I’ll be entering some of my projects, and I’d love it if one (or more!) of the SONP participants won!
And finally, I’d like to ask you for a favor. I was recently nominated for Babble’s Top 50 Craft Mom Blogs and I could use some support. If you have 30 extra seconds to spare, I would appreciate it if you would pop over to the Nomination Page and “like” Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! Unfortunately, there’s no direct link, so you’ll have to hunt me out on the list. At last (obsessive) check I’m at #56 on page 2, or you can sort the nominees alphabetically. Thanks!
