I don’t know if you have seen this blog: Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! but they are hosting their third Summer of NO Pants! I love this idea and would love to encourage everyone to step out of your comfort zone, toss those pants, capris and shorts in your drawer and pull out your sewing machine and sew some skirts this summer! There are past tutorials on the blog and pictures galore! I am in the middle of a move and my machine is all packed up and will be for a while depending on when we finally find a place to live, but I’m determined to make August my pants-free month. I wear pants pretty much every day so this will be an adjustment for me and if you feel overwhelmed at doing it for three months, join me for an August of No Pants! Woot Woot! You can take June and July to sew a few skirts even. Below are just a few of the pictures and links to their tutorials from the Summer of No Pants 2011.
