Friends, I've just completed my genuine Liberty of London summer shirt for the Mood Sewing Network.
You can see me model it this instant by clicking here.

Friends, let me preface this post by saying that I would never say anything intentionally to offend.

Friends, I came this close to forgetting that today, June 22nd is National Onion Rings Day. Now I must be honest: I rarely eat onion rings, subscribing as I do to the adage (attributed to Kate Moss) that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels. But if I were to eat onion rings, this is the day I'd be eating them and I'd even share mine with you!

When Susan came over last week, I asked her to bring me samples of some clothes from her wardrobe that fit well and that she likes.

I really want to make another Ivy-style summer blazer, readers -- and maybe even a vest (my first).
This time I'll be using McCall's 5051 (above, from 1959) in a Size 34 chest (the smallest men's size available). I'm hoping it fits me better than oversized Vogue 9445, which became Michael's tropical print blazer. I think this McCall's blazer will likely to be a solid or simple stripe -- no hibiscus need apply.
