“Orange you glad?” Skirt: My first Cali Fabrics Post

I’m pleased to announce that I am a blogger for the newly launched Cali Fabrics sewing and fabric blog!

For my first Cali Fabrics project, I chose a gorgeous orange embroidered eyelet. I immediately gravitated toward this fabric because of its gorgeous color, but once I received it, I became even more enamored with its overall design. I like that the eyelet openings are relatively small, meaning that I didn’t have to worry as much about underlining. Plus, the embroidery ensures that the design is visually interesting!

Check out the rest of my first post over on the Cali Fabrics Blog.

Casual Friday Inspiration

Sorry it’s been radio silence over here for the past week. Midterm season has officially arrived and with it the latest bout of illness. And here I thought that the Krud was contained to Kenyon’s campus

To make up for it here’s a little bit of inspiration for your casual Friday. Though none of these are office appropriate they’re almost nice enough for which to call in sick.
