If you’re looking for the giveaway and link-up parties for our Sew-a-bration of Womanhood you can find them here.
Today Jessi from The Berry Bunch is up, but first we gave all of the contributors a general questionnaire and here are a few of Jessi’s responses:
Age: I just celebrated my 30th birthday on the 8th! I’ve enjoyed it so far, but I do feel older.
Body Shape: Especially after the two kids, my body has changed. I am a pear. I used to be an hourglass. Isn’t it funny all the things that kids change? Perfect time to sew myself something!
Advice for someone thinking about sewing for themselves: If you want to sew for yourself, like Nike says, “just do it!”. It doesn’t have to be the skirt even. The feeling of accomplishment once you have sewn something, and the compliments that people pay you is such a good feeling. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about yourself and what you do.
