Anything Could Happen

After a sublime heat wave here in Middle Tennessee, my mind is wandering to making nice clothes. It must be noted I have attempted 3 shirts in my lifetime, and they all resulted with less that appealing results. The lovely Hazel Evelyn has been sewing up some fantastic clothes, and all I can say is: I'm inspired!

So, if anyone has any basic or easy (I cannot stress this enough) pattern suggestion for spring/summer clothing, send them my way!

My sweater is almost finished, and I'll have pictures soon. With all the stripes comes MASSIVE weaving in of ends, and that's clearly my least favorite part. Let's not talk about all the semi-finished projects I have laying around that just need that final part.

I've been spinning! I dyed this too!

Thanks Molly!! I've been having a lot of fun making stuff. For easy patterns, I could suggest the five-minute skirt over at Angry Chicken. I was going to suggest the Lydia t-shirt over at BurdaStyle, but they're suddenly charging for it - sad! I'll be putting up a free pattern for a tunic top soon on Hazel Evelyn, which I promise will also be easy :)

I love that skirt! I will do it! Thank you so much for the tip! I'm still recovering from my complete failure on the last top I attempted. Tonight, I think I'll go home and practice on a log cabin pillow from some old fabric scraps I've been accumulating. A tunic pattern sounds great! I'm a bit obsessed with smocks, as there's so much you can do with them. Also, smocking! But, patience, Grasshopper, althouth this skirt makes me squeal with joy:
