Classic T-Shirt Hack: Attached Belt For this hack, I tried to create a different silhouette by adding an attached belt to the Classic T-Shirt. The Classic T-Shirt is fitted around the bust but then flares towards the bottom. If you are well-endowed, this can somewhat distort your figure depending on the fabric you choose. FIRST, I started with the short sleeve...
Flutter sleeves on Classic T-shirt If you want to change your look using a user-friendly classic pattern, this hack is for you. After making the tank version of the Classic T-shirt, I was ready to try something different.

I absolutely love the look of latest pattern from Mamma Can Do It, the Priscilla. The handkerchief hem adds a lovely and fun flair to any wardrobe. While I love the modesty of the high neckline, summer is quickly approaching and with temperatures already in excess of 80 degrees Fahrenheit a lower neckline will be more comfortable for me...
I was honored to be selected to help test the Mamma Can Do It Knit Boxers and Lounge Shorts pattern! It can be found here! (affiliate link) My original plan with these boxers was to use the panel across the butt, but I had a mom brain moment and didn't think about the fact that the back pattern piece is...
Pockets. Handy little things. It's a running joke that pockets for women's clothes are either non existent or too small. Well, when I was testing the Mamma Can Do It Knit Boxers and Lounge Shorts, I was making them for my son. He loved the fit, but then he realized there were no pockets. Where was he suppose to...
