I thought I’d take a moment to share some of my upcoming modern sewing projects with you all.
First up is Casey’s Circle Skirt Sew Along! Elegant Musings has been such a source of inspiration for me since stumbling upon it about 2 years ago. I also would love to make a new circle skirt after having such luck with the first cirlce skirt I made, and am definitely looking forward to drafting one for my own measurements.
Finally, I’ll also be participating in Self Stitched September 2011.
Fabulous sewing blogger Zoe has come up with SSS ’11 as a way to push seamstresses to incorporate more of their handmade garments into their everyday lives. Sewing my own modern clothing is something that I’m so passionate about, particularily since our clothing choices today tend to be dictated by corporations that produce shoddy items sewn by poor sweatshop workers. I feel like this challenge is a push to the next level of avoiding modern-day consumer culture by trying to wear something that I’ve sewn myself everyday. While I’m not aiming to be dressed head-to-toe in annaintechnicolor creations, I do want to try to wear at least one me-made item everyday. So with that in mind, I, Anna of annaintechnicolor, sign up as a participant of Self Stitched September ’11. I endeavor to wear one me-made item each day for the duration of September 2011.
