Two of my three young sons was home sick from school on Monday and since they mostly wanted to veg out I used my time wisely and whipped up this shirt from this dress’s scraps (you can read about this dress here  I’ve made this shirt pattern once before ( so I decided it wouldn’t be one of my official projects but rather a little bonus.  I love this pattern, and I love both tops I’ve made from it.   The best part is, it’s an easy pattern.  It doesn’t take long to make and is pretty simplistic.  Enjoy this mini mid-week make!

Dress I made for week 6


Here is the original shirt I made from the pattern.

This week’s project reveal is my first pair of shorts.  Can’t wait to show that to you on Sunday!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
