And can you believe I’m actually cutting out the sandhill sling?  I realize now that what I want is not a kit, it’s a pre-cut pattern, or… hear me out … I want someone else to make me one.  There are so many pieces to cut! LOL!

Beverly: Cosecha pants by Sew Liberated

I got the fabric at Gray Lines Linen in NYC.  Love this place.  The fabric is actually cotton and was on sale for 6.99/yd.  Also got a heavy cotton/linen twill, burgundy color.  They had really cool linen!  Got some lightweight digital print and a couple of LOVELY twills – felt too soft to be linen, but guy assured me (and had a tag) 100% linen.

Also on my trip: Mood fabrics, B&J fabrics, Fab Scrap, District Leather, Pacific Trimming and Buttons, M&J trimming.
