Ever since I made a knee length Syrah skirt I have been dreaming about a maxi version. During the tour I loved maxi skirts that Abby, Abbey, Teresa and Pienkel have made.
While she was sleeping, I made myself a maxi Syrah skirt.

Today I welcome Magda from House of Estrela. Magda lives in Portugal. She is a mum two children, a girl and a boy. She sews for herself and her little ones.
Magda is a real inspiration. She practically taught herself how to sew, and she is unstoppable. She is into refashioning, and just like myself, Magda is very practical. Just look at this outfit Magda made for her daughter from her sister's dress. I bet Magda's son was the best dressed boy at her niece's wedding.
Here is a little peek at Magda's project for this series.
Head over to House of Estrela to read more! See you there!

Today I am honoured to introduce Jill from Made with Moxie. Jill is cool, calm and awesome. Have you heard of the Perfect Pattern Parcel? Yep, that's Jill's baby. Jill's Prefontane shorts are on my To Sew list for this summer. I imagine Jill has a lot of fun taking photos of her creations, she just looks so comfortable in front of the camera. If not - she is good at faking it! Love the photos of this top (and the top itself). Of course I am only giving you a small taste of what you can find on Jill's blog, you will just have to visit her to see more.
Here is a sneak peek at what Jill is going to talk about today. Are you curious? Well, head over to Made with Moxie.
Please also visit Renee at Nearest the Pin to see who her guest is today.
Our calendar says that today is the last day of the Constant CHANGE series, but since one of our guests had a slight change of plans, please come back tomorrow for one more project inspired by change.

Today I am pleased to welcome Marisa from Thirtynine as my guest for the series.
Last year I was checking out a new (to me) sewing blog and noticed that Marisa left a lot of comments there. I got a little curious and thought I would have a look at her blog too... Over a year later I still love reading Marisa's blog! Her sewing is beautiful and she has a great sense of humour!
I think a tee shirt Marisa made for her son for Kids Clothes Week is such a fun project! I also love this outfit Marisa made for her daughter.
Would you like to see what Marisa made for this series? Then please visit her at Thirtynie.
Don't forget to visit Renee at Nearest the Pin to see who her guest is!

Today I welcome Mieke from sisko by mieke. Mieke is super cool and incredibly talented. I can't remember how I came across Mieke's blog. I remember that I popped over to have a quick look, but could not stop scrolling through her posts, looking at the amazing things she makes. While I don't understand what Mieke writes (unless she writes a little in English) it does not stop me from admiring her creations and appreciating her talent.
A couple of Mieke's recent projects that I absolutely love is this gorgeous outfit she made for her daughter and this top she made for herself. Mieke generously offers a free Janneke dress pattern in sizes 3 - 24 months. The pattern is in Dutch, but instructions are easy to follow.
I am very pleased Mieke agreed to participate in the series. Please visit Mieke's blog to see and read about her project!
Please visit Renee to see what her guest has made.

I am pleased to introduce my guest today - the super talented Teresa from Dandelion Drift. Teresa simply cannot sit still. She is constantly busy with her family and community. She is going to run her first marathon next month!
Teresa loves sewing, and it definitely shows. Things she makes are perfect. A few months ago Teresa and I participated in the Flip This Pattern challenge. Teresa's embroidered knit version of the dress was the winning project, and it is obvious why. Teresa's knit pleated skirt is on my To Sew list for sure.
Here is a sneak peek at Teresa's project for the Constant CHANGE series.
Please visit Teresa at Dandelion Drift to read all about it and be inspired by what this talented lady makes.
Are you curious who is Renee's guest today? Head over to Nearest the Pin to find out!
