I Heart Kilts

I used to think kilts were overrated. I didn't see what all the big deal was, that is, until I had a boyfriend that wears kilts. Now I prefer men in kilts, and I love Utilikilts. My boyfriend outgrew his, but I was just on the Utilikilt site and they have a very cool one in a brick red color and some other new colors, so hmmm. Tempting. I live in S. CA where a kilt can be worn year round, and I'm sure if he had 3 or 4 of them he'd wear them all the time. He likes to wear them while doing archery. He just seems to enjoy life so much more when he's wearing one.

Turning a Peasant Blouse Into a Dress

Saturday I ran into a woman that was wearing the Folkwear pattern Afghan Nomad Dress. I bought that pattern years ago and never got around to making it. So last night I'm trying to find one on line for less than $18.00 or so.

This morning I get up and log on and realize the pattern for a peasant blouse sitting on my desk that I just bought from Yardsellr is very much like that Afghan dress silhouette. (McCall's M808). I can lengthen it either by adding tiers, or just draw it longer into a maxi version.
