Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends!  By all means, this is the most interesting version of a holiday that the world is going through right now, but it doesn't mean that we can't celebrate a little bit.  And wear green while we're doing it, of course!  It's such a scary...

Sporty Piko by Patterns for Pirates

Sporty Piko by Patterns for Pirates

I told you that I was on a kick of sharing projects from last year that never made it to the blog, right?  Here's another instance of that -- because we released the Sporty Piko from Patterns for Pirates back in April of last year and I somehow didn't brag about this...

Joggers + Leggings = Loggers

Joggers + Leggings = Loggers

I cannot believe that I haven't shared these pants yet, especially considering that I get all heart eyed when I think of them! Forever ago, we released a pattern at Patterns for Pirates that is basically the pant that the sewing world has been waiting for.  It wears...
