Denim Tammy’s Tulip Shorts

After test driving the shorts in a woven cotton and then making a pair in knit, I wanted to have a basic denim short for the summer.

Comfy Summer PJs – Review of Tammy’s Tulip Shorts by Sew Caroline and Sante Fe Top by Hey June

I've been focusing on getting out of my comfort zone lately. This means I'm participating in #mmmay17. Part of my participation involves sewing new clothes and trying new patterns. It has taken awhile, but I finally have a good wardrobe base, so now I can really start refining. This whole post and the clothes I made came out of no where. I had the fabric and my original goal was to make a nice summery outfit, but it turned into the best, most comfiest PJs you could imagine. Surprises are good!

Me Made May ’17 Week 4 Round Up

This week was super rough. I don't normally work on campus and when I do I would typically take public transit to make the 1.5 hour commute less stressful. However this week I had a friend visiting to teach me about structural connectivity analyses, so I rented a car to be able to show them around the Provo / Orem area. I'm behind on this post because I would just wake up, drive to Provo, work all day, drive home, and have about 45 minutes before I fell asleep to do it all over again the next day. But I did get to wear quite a few cute outfits, so let's talk about those now!

Me Made May ’17 Week 3 Round Up

Big news this week, it SNOWED here in Utah and not just up in the mountains but in the city too! We went from lovely spring weather, sunny, 75ºF to cold, snowy, freezing temperatures. Any fun wardrobe shenanigans had to be put on hold and I had to resort to wearing my limited cold weather clothes. I know I need more sweaters and long-sleeved stuff, but it wasn't until February / March that I finally found some patterns I liked. I will put off sewing winter stuff until after summer though.
