If you’re looking for the giveaway and link-up parties for our Sew-a-bration of Womanhood you can find them here.
Today the lovely Shawnta from Shawnta Sews is sharing what she made for the Sew-a-bration of Womanhood. We gave all of the contributors a general questionnaire and here are a few of Shawnta’s responses:
What was the biggest challenge with this project: The hardest part of this project was coming to terms with my new shape. I recently lost 12lbs, but still went about making the skirt with my old measurements. I kept adding inches to assure that it would fit, not trusting my new body. I guess when I look in the mirror I don’t appear that drastically different. In the end I had to take the seams in a lot to get the skirt to fit.

It looks like a perfect fit Shawnta! Congratulations on the recent weight loss; I can’t wait to read about what pattern you used for that skirt.
