Social Sew #11: Date Night

February is possibly my least favorite month of the year. Last year, I combated February's dreariness with an aggressively pink coat and a pink dress, and this year, I encourage you all to do the same and sew up something cheerful and lovely, because... 

February's Social Sew theme is Date Night!

Whether you are married, dating, or just plan on eating chocolate with your girlfriends, having a special date night is so important, especially in gloomy February. I suggest something pink (of course) but a little black dress would also be appropriate, son't you think?

Some rules: 
1. This is for adult apparel sewing, so no kids clothes or home decorating (unless specified otherwise in the theme).
2. Newly blogged garments, please: the things you add to the link up should be made or blogged in the month the link up is for. Remember, the theme and the link up are there to inspire you to create something new!
3.  Please click on the logo above to download it, and put it either in the post you are linking up, or in your sidebar. I'd also appreciate you linking to the Social Sew--the more people who discover it, the more participation we'll have, the more inspiration! Thanks, y'all.

Upcoming themes:
January (this month): New Year, New Wardrobe
February: Date Night
March: Anything Goes!

And an important Social Sew update: March will be the last Social Sew--for now! There are so many themed sewing opportunities available, I don't feel too too guilty about bringing my own little contribution to the genre to an end. I might bring it back at some point in the future, but I think now is a good time to bring it to a close: I started this project last April, and I'd like to round out the year. March's theme is Anything Goes, so if you've been wanting to link up but haven't gotten around to the themes, you have a last chance!


ps: if your date night is more netflix and chill than dinner and drinks, i love that, and pajamas are of course valid submissions.

  1. I'm just finishing up an outfit that I made, will post it before the month ends... still have to do a phooshoot.

  2. I'm happy to participate this month for the first and last after it comes to an end. Thought first I have no reason to sew something fancy, but I just got a reason.

  3. I'm sad Social Sew will be coming to an end! :-( I'll have to get moving on my dress so I can post it!!
