Hacking the Pattern - McCall's 6744, Part 1


(This post was written last December, and has been sitting unpublished. It's about a shirt I made in early 2017, so it's an old post about an old make—meta-blogception! I thought it would be nice to take a trip back in time. Enjoy.)

Winter doesn't ever last very long here. The beginning of 2017 was very, very wet with record rainfall (to grow the kindling that would ignite the current wildfire situation...), and then it got HOT. So when late March rolled around, it was already time for summer clothing.

July18 Recap

So July was fun. It was hotter than Hades and I was sick for nearly 3 whole weeks. By fun, I obviously mean miserable. Just thinking about it makes me cranky. Which may leak out into this post. Sorry!

August18 Plans & Inspiration


August used to feel like the death knell of summer. When I was a kid it meant school was around the corner and the days would start getting shorter. But I'm no longer a kid, summer is endless (thank you climate change) and I have been looking forward to the peridot-inspired signature color of the month all  year long!

Fitting the Shorts, Part 1 - True Bias Lander Shorts


Today is #sewmystyle2018 reveal day for July and I had hoped to show you my awesome booty-fitting True Bias Lander shorts AND a pair of Blank Slate Forsythe that I planned to hack into shorts, but I can't.

Because I never got that far.
