While I was pregnant with Olive, I discovered the joy of wearing casual dresses. I've never been a dress girl, but holy cow! A dress is the perfect thing to wear. One piece! Cool and breezy! Also, pretty! And! They hide post baby bumps magnificently!
Imagine my sadness at no longer fitting into said mumus, and trying to stuff said self into jeans again. I vowed then and there to be a casual dress wearing machine! OK, that hasn't exactly happened yet, but the intention is there. I bought a pattern and everything.
Thus, imagine my delight to find Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!'s Summer of No Pants. It's a 4 week challenge to make a dress or skirt EVERY WEEK.
Check out the lineup of tutorials & guest bloggers here: http://www.hideousdreadfulstinky.com/p/summer-of-no-pants-2011.html More inspiration than you can shake a skirt at.
It starts May 23rd (the day after Maker Faire!). I'm a little scared to sign up, honestly. (Newborns make it tough to stick to things like this...or get daily showers.) But still, INSPIRING!
