I need new clothes like crazy but I am SO not feeling the styles and fits in the stores this season.
Maybe it’s my post baby body combined with some ready to wear duds but I’ve know for a while that if I’ve going to get new clothes that I like I’m gonna have to make some.
So in totally related news I have a super exciting announcement! Now that Teddy is sleeping a bit (knock on wood right) and Flamingo Toes Bev is almost done with her book (I can’t wait!!!) we’re bring back Sew Our Stash. Yaaaaayyyy!!!!!!! If SOS is brand new to you what we do is commit to sew up up at least one new item for ourselves. If we do more than that awesome but our goal is at least 1. Bev and I started this as a way to help us sew more for ourselves and use the fabric in our stash but sometimes a girl’s just gotta go to the fabric store right? ;)
As we’re planning, making things all month long (and then wearing those things later) we like to share pictures on Instagram using #sewourstash and we would love to invite you to join. All you have to do is sew for yourself! The last Thursday of every month is Sew Our Stash day where Bev and I show what we made that month. If you blog and want to write a post feel free if you just want to share pictures on IG that’s great too. We’ll be going through the hashtag every month and sharing some of our favorites.
For May our theme is Tops. As a bit of inspiration we have each rounded up some of our favorite DIY shirts for women.
Here are my personal pics and make sure to hop over to see all the Fabulous Tops to Sew that Bev found!
