I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven. I decided they were charging way too much for something that could be made with t-shirt scraps. And that means free. So there you have it. A nice and easy project to give my bad-hair-day head some love. (Or you may need one for working out. Re-purposing: Tshirts into 5-strand-braided-headbands

Free Pattern Month Day 10 - Adventures in Dressmaking: Paperbag Skirt Pattern Free Pattern Month Day 10 - Adventures in Dressmaking: Paperbag Skirt Pattern I've been following Adventures in Dressmaking so long I can't remember exactly when or how I stumbled across her blog. But what I do remember is that I was instantly caught by her cute Anthropologie replicated designs. The nice part about Suzannah's blog is that she shows you exactly what patterns she used to make the dress and other examples of similar dresses that inspired it so that you can create the exact same look!

You'll need a simple snap as well to hand stitch on. The measurements for the three pieces you'll need to make are in the directions below.

Free Pattern Month Day 18 - Vivat Veritas: Scallop Waist Skirt (Today's featured pattern after intro.) I found Chie's blog through her posting her lovely pieces on Grosgrain's flickr boards or through her features on Burdastyle. I'm not quite sure which one it was. But either way, I was hooked. I love how her clothes look amazing from the front AND back. She always on the front pages of Burdastyle and for very good reason! Free Pattern Month Day 18 - Vivat Veritas: Scallop Waist Skirt
