Wow! What a week in the sewing world! There have been so many awesome pattern releases it is hard to keep up! This week, I hosted a little sewathon with Caroline from Blackbird Fabrics, and we made a bunch of wardrobe basics together! It was so much fun and I am loving having more layering pieces to grab and go. She also showed me how to make my own undies and I am completely obsessed now. They are so much more comfortable than store bought undies! Once again, I am wondering why I waited so long to give it a try.
I was having some website issues yesterday, so apologies for the late WW!
