Later in the month we are participating in a series called "Skirting the issue" organised by the lovely Liz and Elizabeth from Simple Simon and co
and Project Run and Play
. During the month of July they have 40 (!) bloggers contributing a tutorial for a child's skirt to this series. So if you ever
want to make a girl's skirt these blogs will be the places to go!! Far more importantly the purpose of this series is to to make and donate handmade skirts to girls of all ages who are currently in the foster care system. They are aiming for 100 skirts by the end of July. I have a feeling they will well and truly surpass this target. They already have over 50 skirts donated. You can check them all out at the Skirting the issue Flickr Pool
.We will be the last bloggers to contribute their tutorial to the whole series so we are going to have to come up with something quite original!!! In the mean time, if you are looking for some inspiration, here are some other skirt tutorials you can find on our blog:
I hope this series is incredibly successful. It is great to see the sewing community working together to help those in need.Watch out for our tutorial on Simple Simon and co on the 30th of July.
