Back to where I started

Way back in the infancy stage -- might even be considered the in-utero stage -- of this blog I stated that my expectations were to start sewing clothing for myself. Well then I found myself on about a million different craft blogs and I started making things...bags, softies, pin cushions. And lately I have been absorbed by quilts and patchwork.

I love working on all these different things but I think it's time I headed back to my roots! With spring just about here I think it's the perfect time for sewing cute skirts and pretty blouses. Winter clothes sewing is just more complicated with linings and heavy weight fabrics. Anyway...I got plans.

First on my list is one or two (or three or four) pairs of light-weight, short pajama pants. I NEED these. For sleeping in the summer, I end up with a, hopefully, long t-shirt and no pants. And then I try to walk around the house that way because it's hot and I'm just going downstairs to get some water. I need pants!

The cover of the pattern has both the words "easy" and "simplicity" on it so I was confident I would not swear while making these. And I did not, I swear.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don't think I've ever sewed anything that didn't make me swear at least once.

Good job!

Those pants look great, perfect for the lake. I may need to pry myself away from quilting to work on my sewing skills! Great work Jen! Love Stacy
