luvinthemommyhood & also my newest blog versus! last year i started a friendly, virtual competition between knits and sews! we simulate a boxing ring and let the crafts duke it out so to speak and then readers vote! versus is the home to all things "comfy sews VS cozy knits" so pop on over and say hi sometime!
i'm so excited to be here on hideous! dreadful! stinky! for the "summer of no pants series"! i love this series! marigold asked me to join in with a round of "comfy sews VS cozy knits" on skirts for you all (you can find dress showdowns here)! i love skirts and dresses. i would prefer to wear a skirt/dress over pants any day. in fact i just made my very first dress for myself (check out the tutorial here)! i'm so happy i did! so here's a fun roundup so that all of you will feel encouraged and inspired to whip up some skirts this summer! the only question is which side will you be on? knits or sews?
let the battle begin...ding...ding...ding...
