Not much to report today, other than I picked up zippers for several projects, did some reading on fitting techniques, and made myself some underwear! I used cloth habit's Rosy Ladyshorts pattern, which can be found here. I cannot stress how great this pattern is. Super simple to make, and with a great fit.

I didn't have matching elastic, so I used completely non-matching elastic, and I'm glad I did! I love the weird way these colors work. Also, notice how I tried so hard to get the plaid on the shirt in my last post to match up with no success, while these line up almost perfectly with absolutely no effort. Sigh.

I'm a bit afraid to start on my other projects. They are all in fabrics I love, and I'm afraid to ruin them. I just need to keep telling myself it will be fine, and s l o w l y use my good scissors.

Also, all I want to do for ever and ever is buy more fabric. It's a problem.


  1. You've got some lovely fabrics!!! Don't forget about the Fearless February Sew Along that's in effect now. Still want to participate? If you're no longer interested/changed your mind I understand. Just let me know and I can take you off the participant list. Take care and happy sewing!!!!

    1. Hey Victoria, I'm definitely still in! I'll be starting my dress soon.
