Bee Inspired: Self Care Sewing

Now that almost everyone's kiddos are back in school, it's time to start focusing on sewing for ourselves!!!  So for this evening's Bee Inspired post, we're focusing on "Self Care Sewing".

What is Self Care Sewing?  It's a term coined by the ladies at Pattern Revolution and we were all part of a movement to remove the phrase "Selfish Sewing" from the sewing world.  Sewing for yourself isn't selfish, it's a way to take care of yourself.  You can join the movement here at Pattern Revolution.

So, now that you're ready to do some Self Care Sewing, here are a few tutorials to inspire you!

First up, we'll start simple with a women's pillowcase dress from Melly Sews.  This one is so cute for holding on to those last days of summer!  And super easy!!

Next, I found this adorable waterfall tank from So Sew Easy while browsing around Pinterest.

Finally, I have something a little challenging for those of you who are wanting to expand your skills!  Sew Country Chick walks you through drafting your own hi-lo dress.

So, who's ready for some Self Care Sewing, now that you have a little bit of free time during the day?
