When you see this banner on the blog, you'll know it's time for a SwimAlong post. I'll also be posting reminders here to make sure that you catch all the action going on over at Leila's blog.
We have so much going on for this SwimAlong, that we couldn't cram it all into one month, so we'll be planning, fitting and stitching up our suits all through the months of May and June. I personally think the hardest part of sewing swimwear is getting over the fear, so hopefully we'll give plenty of time and encouragement so that you'll be zipping out swimsuits before you know it! We have a lot of fun things planned for you all, including some amazing guest posters, so you definitely want to be in on this party.
If you peek up at the tool bar at the top of the blog, you'll notice a new tab labelled "SwimAlong!" You'll find the full schedule of posts there. As we go, I'll link up to each post and add resources (websites, books, favorite online shops, etc) as we reveal them to you. Hopefully this tab will serve as a resource, whenever you are sewing swimwear. This tab will remain a part of my blog. If you've on a mobile device, just click on the bar at the top that says "Home" for a pull down menu.
One essential resource that I want to highlight here is our Flickr group. Sewing and fitting swimwear can be pretty personal, so we wanted to have a safe, welcoming place where we can talk fitting, share resources and post pictures without worrying about Flickr creeps or body shaming. For this reason, the group is private, but we want to include you! If you'd like an invitation to the group, please leave your Flickr handle as a comment on this post and Leila or I will add you. Be sure to check your FlickrMail. The link to join will be there.
