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.

July18 Plans & Inspiration

July has rolled around and suddenly we're past the midpoint of the year and what?! It's crazy but it's true. Should I do one of those mid-year wrap ups that everyone else seems to be doing? Seems like fun. Or maybe I'll save it for the end of the year? I don't know, stay tuned.

June18 Recap

All of the sewing for this month took place in exactly 19 days. Somehow I managed to finish 8 entire garments in less than 3 weeks and I’m pretty proud of that.
