#AllButtsWelcome: Let the Theme Month Begin!

All Butts Welcome logo featuring two peaches.

This is our final theme month on Sewcialists before we go on hiatus in June… and what could be a better memory as we walk out the door than a nice butt? Fitting our tushes can be one of the biggest challenges in sewing and in RTW, and sometimes it’s easy to start thinking that it’s our bottom that is the problem. However, all butts are good butts, and this month we aim to celebrate that!

Joining is simple!

All you have to do is sew something (ANYTHING) that covers your butt, and tag your project #AllButtsWelcome on Instagram. We will be watching the tag to share your amazing projects along the way and in our end-of-month wrap-up. The challenge lasts until May 31st.

(A word of warning – since we chose the hashtag a month ago, someone has started using it for butt-in-thong photos. If that keeps happening we will change our tag!)

What sewing projects count?

We like our rules free and easy here at Sewcialists, so any garment that covers your butt counts.

For example,

  • pants
  • shorts
  • leggings
  • overalls
  • jumpsuits
  • skirts
  • dresses
  • underwear
  • swimsuits

You may sew for yourself or someone else, and projects can be simple or complex. We hope you’ll find a project that inspires you and fits with your budget and time. Sewing should be fun.

All butts are welcome!
