It’s “Nothing But Bottoms” over at the Ellie & Mac Patterns headquarters this week, and I’m excited to share one of my favorite Ellie & Mac patterns for your lower half! The paperbag waist trend first caught my eye last year, and I made a super cute pair of paperbag waist shorts last Spring. This year, I decided to try out the same detail in a skirt!
We’re about halfway through March and I’m seeing signs of Spring everywhere! The cherry blossoms are in bloom all around me, the air has that perfect spring smell, and the temperature is getting warmer and warmer each day. My family and I have been spending so much more time outside over the last couple of weeks, and it has made all of us so happy. (Of course, now that I say that, we’ve got a full week of rain on the forecast. Whoops!) Earlier this year, I chose this fabric as part of my “Monthly Make My Stash” project, but I wasn’t quite sure what I would make! I purchased this fabric a couple of years ago, before I was comfortable with sewing knit fabrics, and it has sat on my shelf ever since. It is so beautiful, and I really didn’t want to cut into it until I knew I was going to love what I made. So to help me challenge myself to make sure I finally sewed it up, I made it my March project!
It’s my first blog post of 2020! I’m starting the year off comfortable, sharing a simple tee with some elevated details, sewn up in possibly the best fabric I’ve ever purchased. Even better – it’s a Wacky Wednesday post, which means if you like this tee, you can nab the pattern today for just $1! The photos in this post were taken on my sister-in-law’s family olive orchard in Spain, and I’m excited to share the first of my photos from our trip to Spain on the blog, as well!
Merry Christmas! I’m sharing my first ever set of me-made family Christmas jammies on the blog today! Christmas jammies is one of my favorite holiday traditions, and it was so special to share it with my husband and tiny girl this year! I’ve got all the details on our matching set (hint – there are SLOTHS) as well as some pretty stinking cute photos. Whether you are reading this today or sometime after, I hope you all enjoy a fantastic and peaceful day with those you love!
