WHAT IS THE SUMMER OF NO PANTS?!
The Summer of No Pants, or SONP, is a summer-long handmade style series. From the first day of summer to the last, we ditch our pants in favor of skirts and dresses. SONP started as a sewing challenge and competition, but I want SONP 2014 to be as inclusive as possible. So I’m ditching the competitive aspect–no sewing contest this year–and broadening the focus from *just* sewing posts. Instead, we’re going to focus on celebrating femininity, personal style, and the handmade life. It shouldn’t matter if you can sew or not. Everybody can wear No Pants!
BUT…I LOVE SEWING!
I know! Me, too! That’s why I’ll still share lots of sewing posts and tutorials for SONP 2014. And there are bunches of other skirt & dress sewing series that are out there that I’ll be working with so you can still get your sewing fix in, if that’s your thing. However, I’ll also be sharing ways to style, re-style and embellish skirts and dresses that are store-bought, thrifted, or have been sitting in your closet unworn for the past four years. We’re going to play with fabric printing, dying, embroidery, re-fashioning. We’ll talk about accessorizing with a handmade touch, and how to be cute and comfortable as you wear No Pants all summer.
