I made this shirt in the spring, and have been wearing it consistently ever since. The pattern is the Cabin by Blueprints for Sewing, and it's actually the third I've sewn. I love the kimono sleeves and the pleat in the back. But my favorite detail...

I've been sewing a ton of shorts for the bee this summer, and I'm unreasonably excited about it! The bee is nothing if not steadfast (read: stubborn) in her beliefs, but every once in a while she changes her mind, to the shock of all around...
