it’s summer kids clothes week! and i have definitely been sewing. i’ve probably logged about 7 or 8 hours since sunday, but it’s one of those “secret projects” that i can’t show you yet, and sewing has taken precedence over blogging because DEADLINES. i’m actually pattern testing two new Oliver + S fall patterns! it’s very exciting, but high stakes, meticulous sewing.
and of course, all i can show you are super close up photos that show nothing, really.
i know. super annoying of me. i got to sew with some pretty amazing cotton + steel fabric (first time i’d seen any in person – it lives up to the hype) aaaaand some pretty frustrating super-stretchy waffle knit. i did learn a few new tricks to get the knit to behave itself that i’ll talk about when i can post about what i made, so that’s good. always nice to add new skillz to the mix.
so as of 11:30pm tonight my pattern testing garments are sewn, and now i can move onto sewing a few things my kids need to round out the summer. both big kids are taking swim lessons i’ve got to make E another swimsuit (her first one has been getting heavy use). plus both she and O need shorts!
this season’s KCW has a “kid art” theme, and the kids had a great time painting on fabric which i’ll also show you soon – but for now, i’ve got to get some sleep! sleep is always the first thing to go during KCW.
no wait. laundry is.
no wait. my laundry is rarely under control. who am i kidding?

I think we’re all in the same boat laundry wise! Be ause it never seems under control! Lol
i’ve got nothing to show for myself this kcw! boo hoo. i’m excited to see your high stakes sewing!!
Hah! I sew IN the laundry room, which gives me a perfect excuse to be there..but I also tend to use the washing machine cycle as my timer when to go to bed.
excited to see your o+s sewing, and painted fabric sounds so fun!
