March 19

I started writing this post last night, but then the lightning started. Then came the hail. Then the lights went out... so the blogging had to wait until today. Here goes...

I have two exciting new additions to my sewing collection! The Built by Wendy Coats and Jackets book and the Negroni men's shirt pattern from Colette patterns.
I bought this Colette pattern to make a shirt for my boyfriend. I've made button down shirts for women before, so hopefully this pattern won't be too difficult. Plus, I have the men's shirt sew along on Male Pattern Boldness to look to as a helpful reference.

I think I'll work on the jean jacket first from the Built by Wendy book, except I want to use corduroy in place of denim.
Hopefully these new patterns will give me some motivation to start sewing again!
