Hello lovely sewing people!
I’m just dropping by to let you know I recently recorded an interview for the Sew Organised Style podcast with the incredibly warm human being that is Maria @velowsews, alongside my #sewtogetherforsummer co-Hosts, Monika and Suzy. (This podcast recording is proof, should evidence be needed, in getting me to sit down in my echoey kitchen to record this, just how good these amazing women are taking my hand and guiding me safely out of my Comfort Zone!)
If you would like to listen to the episode then grab your drink of choice and follow THIS LINK. The show is a conversational piece; in amongst the laughter we discussed how Suzy, Monika and I put together the yearly #sewtogetherforsummer challenges; talking about our friendship as well as the inspiration and ethos behind the challenges themselves.
There are show notes attached to the podcast. You can also find more information on the Challenge over the years by clicking through the link in the above menu or by reading the 2021 ‘Sundress’ Challenge blog post HERE.
I’ve got to admit, my own sundress plans got off to a shaky start – I made and discarded one toile in a fit of pique, only to pick it up again a few days later when I decided I did like it after all! Note to self: don’t make decisions when you’re tired!
How are your sundress plans coming along? I’m making the SewHouse7 ‘Mississippi Avenue’ (Simplicity 8231); I’m also contemplating a knee-length Closet Core ‘Sallie’ and the SH7 ‘Underwood’ maxi. But then I rather like the look of Cashmerettes ‘Holyoke’ too…
Perhaps if we all make and wear sundresses, we can appeal to the Sun Gods to actually deign to make an appearance?!
Until next time, happy sewing!
