Sandbox Love




We've all got that one pattern that we love to sew and for me that is the Oliver + S Sandbox Pants.  I've sewn it up countless times over the years.  It's a great basic pants pattern all on it's own but with a little imagination you can make pretty much any kind of pants/shorts with it.  This time around, I made a pair of shorts for BK.  If you want to see my other renditions of the Sandbox pattern over the years, check out the Oliver + S blog HERE.

September Stripes

I have always wondered what leads a blogger to go from posting on a regular basis to seemingly disappearing from the online sewing community.  Did something tragic happen or have they quit sewing altogether?
 
I can confidently say that in most cases it's a matter of life being busy.  Once you get out of the routine of posting every few days it gets harder and harder to find the time to start again.  I'm doing my best to get back in the habit of blogging again.

Hot Pink Ruffle Shorts

 
The last time I sewed Class Picnic Ruffle Shorts, BK wore a size 5.  She outgrew them at least a year ago.  They were always a favorite so it was time to sew up a new pair.  This time with a few more modifications to make my girl happy.
