Wednesday Weekly #99

Happy Wednesday! This week I am feeling super jazzed about the podcast and my upcoming pattern projects! I am also totally feeling like I am ready for some cooler fall weather and I’m planning my fall and winter sewing! Are you starting to think about your next makes? I think I want to focus on some sewing challenges this season. It will likely mean fewer items sewn, but tackling more complex projects like jeans, a raincoat, and maybe even a few bras! I can’t wait to get started.
