I enjoyed that Colette pattern so much I felt brave enough to attempt the Iris shorts.
Everything was going well until I got to the waistband part. For some reason it seems like my waistband is too short, but I've cut carefully and I have been meticulous with my 5/8 seam allowance. I cannot figure it out so hopefully my friend can help me. It is now in a bag, on a shelf, away where it can't frustrate me.
These came in the mail recently.
I absolutely love the keep calm print! I only ordered 1/2 a yard but I think I want to buy more. How cute would a bag be in this print.
I started another project. I knew I shouldn't have but I was itching to so, oh well.
In other news, we had a tornado touch down in the back yard today. It was really scary! I was in a closet with the boys, a flashlight, a bottle of water, and a phone.
Thankfully we are all safe and had minimal damage, but other people in the neighborhood weren't so fortunate. I always thought I was pretty safe from most natural disasters living in Virginia, but between the earthquake last year and now tornadoes, I know crazy weather can happen anywhere. Hope you all are well!
