Today I have a great summer basic to share with you, a tank top sewn up in a super soft ikat print cotton. I finished this one up a few weeks ago so you might have seen it over on Instagram. The pattern is the Ella Top by Liola Designs. I made this pattern once before, back in 2015, and have been meaning to make it again. I love that it's an easy to wear tank shape but has a back yoke and center back pleat.Read More
This month has truly flown by. I feel like it was just a couple days ago when I wasn’t sure if I wanted to participate this year or not. I was feeling kind of meh about the whole thing and not really sure what my goal was. Honestly, my goal is still a little murky. But, quickly after the start of the month, I did start enjoying being more thoughtful about what I would wear. This year was a little different from last year in that I was working fewer days, so my outfits were much more casual than if I was going to be seeing people. When I’m not going to the office I will wear whatever is most comfortable and sometimes that’s just a weird pile of clothes.
Looking back at my recaps from the last few years, I’m happy to see that I’m still wearing a lot of the same clothes. In the last few years, I’ve tried to be more strategic with my making and only make things that will get a lot of wear. With a few exceptions, I’ve done a good job of that.Read More

I wear a cardigan almost everyday and the Blackwood Cardigan by Helen's Closet fits my cardigan needs perfectly.Read More
