Sew Fashionable 02/22/16
Right now my sewing interests are being pulled in a million different directions. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I bounce around from children’s clothing to women’s wear to home decor to hair bows and then do it all again. This year I’ve been drawn towards women’s wear and perfecting the fit. And lately it’s been lingerie. I can’t stop reading about it. I promised to show you my first bra soon, and I will. If I can get my ass off Pinterest long enough to to take some pictures.
I wanted to share some interesting makes and articles I’ve come across, and maybe turn it into a weekly series. I can’t commit, because that’s just not who I am. Since writing these 2 paragraphs, I’ve carried my iPad with me to cut a romper pattern hack I’ve been planning, to the laundry room to fold clothes, and refreshed my coffee in the kitchen. My coffee hasn’t been touched, the laundry is wrinkling as we speak, and the romper lays uncut. You see I can’t even commit to simple tasks, much less a blog series. But we’ll see!

Okay, that’s enough for now. How does one get from bras to quilting like that? Now my coffee is cold and laundry beckons…so I’ll probably go cut the romper.
