MMM Day 30

Me-Made-May is almost over. And, as usual, I've learned some things about what I like to wear, what I like to make, and the intersection between those two!


This shirt is from Just A Pinch, a pattern from Cutting Line Designs. The name originates from the horizontal pin tucks down the front. I omitted the tucks, and more recently took about 3 inches off the back length. The cheerful yellow fabric is a Japanese cotton, also from Cutting Line Designs.

I really like that vest but have not made it yet.


These are my newest make with the Quincy pattern from the Sewing Workshop. The fabric is a washed linen I purchased in Paris. It was already highly textured, as you might expect from a *washed* linen. I tested it to make sure because it doesn't behave exactly like linens I used before. It is much better behaved. And it was wonderful to sew.
I omitted the tabs on the side seams. And I think mine are too long for summer pants. I'll take them up 1/2 inch. I don't like for my pants legs to pool on top of my feet.

It was another fun day at Camp Sew 'n' Sew. Here's what we made today:

Aren't they adorable?


  1. Wow! Your young seamstresses are really productive! Hope you all continue to enjoy the process and each other
