Carving out time to sew or create anything is probably my biggest creative challenge these days, thanks to the infant and toddler who live with me and need to be fed regularly.

This colorway is top one. Fabric is already bought and prepped for top two. That’s part of my big summer sewing plan: find a few good, really wearable patterns and make several of each. I love this pattern: it’s casual but still quite stylish, has some interesting details, and is calling out for some fun alterations. Maybe a cute mini pocket?
