Summer weight wool is much lighter than regular wool.  It seems like it might have a slightly looserContinue reading “Summer Weight Wool Maxi Skirt”

Sandbridge Maxi Skirt in brown twill

The Sandbridge Skirt is one of our favorite skirt patterns.  It enables us to sew many of the skirts we wear on a daily basis.  We wear both the Sandbridge Skirt in it’s original design, and we’ve hacked it into a Sandbridge maxi skirt several times.  Which brings us to today’s post.

Sheridan Sweater Review

Probably every post about the Sheridan Sweater by Hey June Patterns has the words “did it again” in it somewhere!

Mustard Phoenix Blouse and Navy Pinstripe Skirt
