(and then a step to the ri-i-i-i-i-ight!)
Blogging! It’s making a comeback! I am pretty sure of it! My mid-year resolution is to blog more, and I think you should too! Unless you are Violet and never stopped blogging multiple times a day. My hero!
A lot of my Twitter friends blog, but if I met them through Twitter I wasn’t following their blogs. Which, ack. So today I am collecting URLs to add to feedly. In the process, I found myself looking at some of the feeds that are still on my list but haven’t been updated in forever, and I happened to find this post, which is where I first got the itch to have a closet full of Simplicity 3835s. It was six years ago. OMG.
We went to the renaissance fair on Saturday (pictures to come!) and while we were out the postman left a slip for two packages. The children and I walked to the post office yesterday and picked up my fabric order and part of my Old Navy order. My new wardrobe is underway! And just in time, because I got rid of more clothes after my last post. The patterns for Dress No. 1 and Spin Skirt arrived last week, and I bought a digital download of Violet (because I couldn’t stomach $6 shipping for one pattern).
First up, I am going to make a muslin of 3835 (with unbleached muslin I found in my fabric stash) and one of the dresses (I don’t think I need to make a muslin). Place your vote for navy, orange, or lime! (The grey is a remnant that I might use for pockets or more likely to make something for Grace.)
