What To Sew When Your Brain Has Turned To Mush


There are times when I'm up for a challenge and there are times when I think "for the love of God, I WILL NOT sew a dress that requires me to cut out 20 pieces!"  And truth be told, I've fallen more in the latter category lately.  So while I've picked up a few cute patterns at pattern sales I feel like my brain is just not up for the challenge of a new pattern.  And so I'm going back to a favorite.  In particular, I'm going back to Simplicity 2444, although this time I will apparently be dressing myself as a table cloth as I have some gorgeous black and white gingham fabric waiting to be pressed and cut up (I blame my obsession with gingham solely on this dress.  Yeah, yeah, I know it's a different pattern, but man, gingham has never looked so good!).


  1. I LOVE gingham. Can't wait to see the results.

  2. Oh man, I totally get the obsession, especially after seeing that dress!

  3. i am planning on starting my shorts soon... very soon. although honestly it will probably be next summer before they are done!

    And there it is on the pattern in black gingham. Can't wait to see it. I'm not sure my new post-babies waist could handle that pattern but a girl can dream, eh?


A comment? For me? You're the best!
