This pattern is chuck full of options and will be perfect in board short fabric come summer. There’s options for color blocking, pockets, piping trim, full elastic or flat front waist, and different length and hem choices.
I did the bias bound curved hem and front tie option with the flat front and elastic back. Classic and cool.
I usually dread taking pictures of this busy guy but he was AWESOME this shoot. I can’t get enough of these pics.

It’s currently snowing in our neck of the woods, so I’ll leave you with this pic while I dream of summer…
I also had the pleasure of testing for Terri from Sew Straight and Gather. Her Cousu Collection was kinda groundbreaking for me, pushing me to try new techniques and totally taking me to a new level. This time I tested her versatile Urban Garden Dress and Tank. It’s such a cute pattern and her tutorials are THE BEST! If you haven’t tried one of her patterns you are totally missing out. Beware though that once you do, all other patterns will be lacking in comparison.
This summer my quest for myself was to make the perfect pants and shorts. I tried a gazillion patterns and I think my quest is still on…
School starts this week and it’s always a little bittersweet. I adore having my kids home and the adventures we get to do every day. For the most part, they get along great and we spend a lot of time laughing and just being together. BUT… we are together ALL THE TIME. I feel guilty stealing away for an hour or two to create. So the sweet part of back to school is that I will have every afternoon to myself (thanks to a cute three year old that still naps)! I’m so excited to be able to sew without the guilt of negletting the kiddos. Oh, the project list… 🙂
