Good morning! Well, the buffalo check mania this fall finally got to me. Suddenly I needed a check flannel shirt. I was really fortunate to find the perfect flannel shirting at JoAnns.
I’m having such a good time with my McCalls 6600 shirts (in chambray and jersey knit). The pattern is so adaptable. For this one, with leggings in mind, I added a couple inches to the length. Yes, I live in south Florida, but I do have boots! Two pairs – black leather, brown suede leather. You never know when it’ll snow.
To be honest, much as I love Florida (almost 40 years worth), I do miss fall and winter clothes. The layering, cozy looks, coats, boots, big leather bags, scarves, even mittens. And ice on the car and in the birdbath. I could stand a little of that. Ashley and I used to travel every February to Paris or London, ostensibly for my birthday. And we loved being cold!
Dolly Parton was singing on the telly while I shot these pics. Accounts for some of the blurry (weird?) shots… this one is somewhere between a whip, a leg break, and a nae nae. As an aside, I love the Nae Nae song and dance.
Little details. I sewed this one with a button cuff and with shiny black buttons. The buttons don’t show well in the pics, but in person they add a little light to the front.
|Apparently still dancing…|
I’m off to make a real mess in the living room – I’m cutting out the Hudson pants for the guys in my life. Hope you’re having some enjoyable sewing time as well.
