Greetings, fellow sewists! I am sooo excited to announce that today kicks off the first (annual?) Momiform MAKEover series here on Baste + Gather. I've got 30+ stitchin' moms all lined up and ready to "MAKE" over their daily momiforms with handmade garments. I've seen some of what these ladies have sewn up for us, and I can't wait to share!
How did the Momiform MAKEover come about? Well...
Soon after I had my son, I was wearing old, maternity sweatpants around the house with holes in the bum. Sure, that's fine for a new mom...but these pants had become daily attire through three pregnancies AND beyond. Their time had come...and gone. I had this moment where I realized that I would wear things that made me feel better about myself and more "put together" if only I had items that were comfortable and just as easy-to-wear as the old standbys. That's when I came up with the idea of the Momiform MAKEover.
I decided I would attempt to replace my worn-out, ill-fitting, not-flattering garments with handmade garments that looked as great as they felt. When I shared the idea with a few sewing blogger friends, they were so excited, I knew I had to make a series out of it. So here we are!
On each of the next eight days, I'll give you a brief preview of that day's featured moms' (3-4 per day) outfits along with a link to their full posts on their blogs. My hope is that you'll have lots of inspiration to MAKE over your daily uniform whether you're a mom or not!
Aaaaaaaaand...(drum roll please), we have SO. MUCH. STUFF. to give away including a brand-spanking new Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine, gift certificates from Indiesew, Michael Levine and UpCraft Club, and TONS of other goodies from indie pattern designers and authors.
