Isn't that the coolest print shirting you've ever seen?
Readers, you can see me modeling my new summer outfit right this very minute by simply clicking here!
Wait -- perhaps you didn't even know there was a new summer outfit in the works. That, I suspect, is because you don't follow me on Instagram. These days, that's the best place to find the most up-to-date info on my sewing projects. It's so much faster to post there than to craft a blog post.
An interesting factoid about my shirting fabric: I bought it for a client (whom you'll be meeting soon) and loved it so much I picked up more for myself. The two projects I made from it are different in style but it's cool to see more than one thing made up in a particular fabric, don't you think?

I practically live in clothes like these during the summer: casual enough to be comfortable but sufficiently put-together so that I can wear them to, say, my new patternmaking class at FIT (which started earlier today). Yes, I impulsively decided to continue my studies this summer, and am taking a second-level intensive flat patternmaking class that meets three days a week for the next five weeks (much like my draping class). Much more about that in the days and weeks ahead.
And what did I wear to class this morning? This very outfit!
(Who doesn't like new school clothes?)
Have a great day, everybody!
