Just looking for some sewing inspiration...and I keep stumbling upon sew-alongs I wish I had known about! Anything good out there in the blogsphere? I'd be interested in just about any garment sewing - women, kids, mens (primarily shirts for guys, actually).

Thanks!

I just finished the Minoru jacket sew-along. I love the pattern, and the participants really added lots of cool ideas to the jacket. (Sewaholic blog)

One pattern One week is coming up within a week but I don't know which blog is hosting it.

The One Week One Pattern is being hosted by Tilly and the Buttons.

Also Rhinestones and Telephones is doing a sewalong of the patterns from the Colette Sewing Handbook. One a month, for all five included patterns.

Thank you so much for suggesting Tilly and the Buttons - it is just what I've been looking for as a beginner sewist
The suggestions for beginner projects are very appealing, have a purpose in terms of building your skill level and are all items I might actually use! Thanks again for the tip. If there are other sites out there with similar content I would love to know about them

It would be great if there was a thread where people could post their 'sew a longs' so people can find out what's going on where.
I tend to stumble upon sew a longs after the fact too.

I did ponder starting a 'shorts' sew-a-long for summer...after the energetic discussion on the thread on the trials and troubles of finding shorts that flatter.
Everyone would pick their own shorts pattern, and help each other out.
