Marlo Sweater Obsession

Sometimes I make the same pattern multiple times and then try to decide if it’s worth blogging about. Then I remember that this is The Sewing Things Blog and that I just sew the things that I love. And if I love them, then I will probably make them multiple times. And if anything, you’ll see the same pattern sewn … Continue reading “Marlo Sweater Obsession”

Thread Theory Olya Shirt

I feel like I always have in the back of my mind how long it’s taken me to use a fabric and pattern that I’ve had for a really long time.

I finished sewing these shorts late Thursday night, and I was really on the fence about how I felt about them. Then I tried them on again Friday morning, before going to the thrift store, and decided they weren’t all that bad. And I proceeded to wear them for the rest of the day, and Saturday too!
