#sewmystyle 2018 launching!

I've had a few messages asking if I'm continuing the #wardrobebuilder next year. Initially I planned for it to last for one year, and I am going to leave it as a 2017 project because I feel it has come to a natural end. It's been great fun; I've loved finding inspiration from the sewing community, and discovering more about how to make my handmade wardrobe successful. However, it is quite lonely, and I wanted to spend more time in 2018 getting involved on other projects..... and then Jessica Lorraine put out a call for leaders to get involved in the 2018 #sewmystyle. I have found having a monthly project really helpful in focusing my sewing and making it more purposeful, so tossed my hat in the ring to join in .................

Last year there were over 1000 people who signed up to be involved and we are hoping we will get even more this year, with the project being led by a team of international bloggers, including me! If you follow me on Instagram you'll find links to the whole team. Thank you to everyone who sent in their feedback from last year's #sewmystyle - we have used it to pick this year's line up. I have also been privileged to be so involved in the #wardrobebuilder project, taking forward what you liked most about this too. Because #sewmystyle is focused on one pattern at a time it means we can bring you all some great discounts!

We will be sewing 12 items in 12 months; the patterns will be simple, seasonally transitional and on trend. We are working with a range of independent pattern designers to bring together a selection of different garments that can be adapted in a number of ways to suit each maker's individual style. On the first of the month each pattern is released, along with a nice discount for those of you who are signed up. Throughout the month bloggers will be posting their inspiration and joining you on the making journey, with the final reveal on the last Sunday of each month. you can follow along with my makes at here on the petite passions blog.

There are monthly sponsors offering prizes for participants' makes each month so make sure you post your pics to be in with a chance of winning. The full line up and details can be found here. 

I hope you enjoy 2018's project as much as the #wardrobebuilder!
