Yes, yes … it’s gift guide season! I’m sure you’ve seen them popping up everywhere. I love gift guides because they take a lot of work out of the gift hunt. Themed ones are especially helpful when buying for that special someone who has interests you are unfamiliar with. So while you may not need this guide for your own holiday shopping, it may be helpful to forward along to your loved ones with a little *wink*wink* *nudge*nudge* if ya know what I mean ;).
Every year for my birthday I make myself something special. This year it was all about polka dot maxi-magic!!
You may not know this about me but I do some sort of work out just about every morning. Sometimes it’s yoga, sometimes it’s strength training videos on youtube. It’s never longer than an hour (lets me honest mostly thirty minutes) and it’s not crazy intense but it’s an important part of my day that I rarely skip even on my laziest of mornings. So naturally when I noticed the bums on my spandex workout shorts starting to wear out and pill I decided it was time to make some of my own.
If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’m a fan of all things “swing”. When this pattern came out from Named Clothing it immediately went onto my “to sew” list. Then this fabric crossed my path and I knew it was a match made in heaven.
If there was a game called “refashion everything into an ogden cami” I think I would win! It’s just such an easy pattern to refashion from other garments. It requires very little fabric and is very hack-able, two characteristics that are great for refashioning.
Theres a reason I’m standing in the street in front of an old ford truck…
This one has been up on youtube for a while and is already linked in your instruction book but I wanted to repost in hear in case you missed it.
