Alida From Alida Makes: Sewing The Trends

Well readers, today is the last day of the Sewing The Trends Series.
It’s been a pleasure and I’m really grateful to all my blog friends who participated. When I sent out the e- mails my biggest fear was that I would hear crickets and no one would want to do it! I was sort of shocked and also very excited that these talented ladies agreed to hang out at my little old blog.

My last guest is the lovely, witty and talented Alida from Alida Makes. I admire her style and she is probably one of the most talented photographers in the sewing and craft blog world. I seriously LOVE her photos. Her projects are great too!

Here you can see a few yourself from her blog below

“Hey y’all!  I’m Alida and I blog at Alida Makes.  While I love all things crafty, sewing is my passion.  I like sewing children’s clothes the best, but every once in a while I make something for myself.  I have 4 kids and a super busy hubby so most of the projects you see on my blog can be completed in an hour or two.  I chose the chambray maxi skirt for my post today because I love that chambray is making a comeback and I love the maxi skirt trend!”

Check out this adorable skirt! I think I’m going to try to make one for my upcoming trip to Mexico. I love chambray and its soft buttery feel. Don’t forget to stop by Alida Makes to get the full tutorial on how to make yourself one.
Thank you for stopping by and reading the series!

    Thanks for having me! And thank you for saying that about my photography. My dad was a photographer when I was a kid, I spent my childhood in the dark room.
