After those actual cheetah print Lander Shorts I made over the summer last year, I was fully on board the animal print trend – in both the classic, spotted sense, as well as the prints of actual animals version! So when this fabric popped up in a Minerva Makers call out, I was fully on board.
One of my favorite makes of 2019 went live on the Minerva blog this morning! I’ve been truly in love with this tee since making it, and wouldn’t mind one bit if I just had a closet full of these. I wear this shirt on a weekly basis, and I’m so happy to finally be sharing it with you guys! How many times have you made this free pattern already???
Another Recap – and another super late post! I’m excited to look back over my September / October makes today, halfway through December. I think next year, I’ll be switching to quarterly instead of bi-monthly recaps, because I just can’t seem to keep up!! Over the two months I’m recapping today, I made 12 new garments – my three favorites were the matching outfits I made for our family for our tiny girl’s first birthday! I did more “selfless” sewing over this period than usual, and also did a little scrap busting by sewing up a headband out of some leftover leggings fabric. I didn’t include any photos here, but that has probably been my most worn item from this period!
I’m back for round three of my bi-monthly recaps! I did a little better sewing up stash fabrics in May/June than I did in March/April, but still not quite as good as in January/February. I still participated in quite a bit of collaboration sewing again over this 2-month period, but I am so happy to say that I haven’t purchased any fabric since my IndieSew purchase in February / March! I’m really enjoying getting to make up some of my fabrics into garments I’ve had in my brain for awhile, and shopping my stash when I want to try a new pattern. This was a bottom heavy couple of months, with skirts / pants / shorts making a big bang in my handmade wardrobe. Without any further delay, here’s my makes!!…
