One important thing this challenge has taught me, is that I have not made near enough everyday pieces of clothing. Most of what I have in my handmade wardrobe are dresses, jackets, and skirts. Here is the first installment of my pledge to participate in this challenge:
I have a pair of black denim capri pants almost complete. I simply need to hem them and add a button at the waistband. Pictures should follow soon. Also, look for more of the aforementioned everyday pieces of clothing in the near future as that is my focus for summer sewing.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.

All very cute! I think many of us are realizing just how few everyday wear pieces we actually have. It's a great idea to focus your summer sewing on that type of item.Looking forward to seeing the new capris!
