I used Instagram to keep track of my wears (#MMMAY16), and it was fun looking at other makes too.  I find it so inspiring to see what others are sewing up, and knitting too, but I also find it frustrating because I just want to make what they’re making too!

Other than the skirt, most of my makes are tops.  I think it’s time to venture into shorts and pants now.  I have a couple of shorts patterns in my queue, like the Oceanside pattern and a vintage pattern I’ll be sharing soon.  Please share your favorite shorts patterns and tutorial links ’cause I need more inspiration!
