What a way to start off summer vacation – sick. Easton managed to pick up some sort of horrible stomach bug (complete with a fever) and either I have some severe allergies (there is so much cottonwood blowing around it looks as if it’s snowing) or I have a cold – either way I feel as if I cough anymore I might bring up a chunk of lung. Consequently, I haven’t felt like doing anything sewing related other than surfing online fabric stores. However, right before we started feeling bad, I did manage to measure Easton for the Hot Scott Cargo Shorts Pattern…… and was disappointed to discover that he’s wayyyyy skinnier than the pattern itself (she said they run large, but I had no idea it would be that large). Consequently, I’m putting this one aside and looking for an Ottobre pattern I like – since I already know how they fit, I don’t have to fiddle too much with the sizing (when I eventually settle on a short pattern, I think I’ll make a matching Bucket Hat as well).
