Worn underneath a vest, jacket, doublet, or other piece of outerwear, the shirt was considered "underwear", and folks just didn't go out without anything else on. Ladies wore their chemise like a slip, under the good dress, where it didn't show (unless they were in the business of showing their underwear to men). But since most places you'll be likely to wear this won't care that much about historical accuracy, you can make up one of these and call it good. </b>*}

Texas Freckles: Pincushion Crazy! I've gone pincushion crazy! I wanted to make another pincushion to help me create instructions on how I customized the measurements, so I did that last night. But most of my photos were really dark since my sewing room has insufficient light at night, so I made another one today so I could re-take many of the photos. I don't think I've violated any copyright by doing this, but let me state for the record that this IS NOT my pattern and I am not redistributing the pattern here.

Cool Car Caddy Straps On To Headrest ROOOOOAAAAADDDDD TRIIIIPPPPP! Summertime is the perfect time to load up your family and friends and hit the open road. But first you have some stuff (aka crap) you need to organize for the trip: tunes, cell phone, scribbled notes, tickets, Google Maps printouts, pens, snacks, your wallet, etc., etc., etc. If you skip this important organizational step, here's what will happen: You are driving, keeping your eyes on the road (of course), and you reach out to grab something from the pile of stuff (crap), but can't quite reach it/find it without rear-ending the truck in front of you.
