Stephanie from makesthethings & Native Clutter and I have declared April to be Moss Making Month!

We are planning on making as many Moss skirts as we possibly can in one month to get ready for summer.

I might end up wearing Mosses, slouchy shirts, and sandals aaaaalllllllllllll summer long. I need to be ready!

You can see sneak peaks all month long on our Instagram accounts, too (look up #mossmakingmonth and #ssmmm to follow our progress):

Stephanie will even be diving into making a leather Moss! I’m super excited to see it!

Join us, if you want! Even one Moss is enough!

Grab your copy of the Moss skirt PDF pattern from Grainline Studio and let’s get this party started!

So, I’ve tried both the Tiny Pocket Tank by grainline and the Wiksten Tank.

I prefer the Tiny Pocket Tank, honestly. It is more fitted and less flowy and it just works with my body better. I’ll get pics of my Wiksten tank up soon and do a comparison.

I got this fabric at the ARC a while back. I’ve been obsessed with it ever since but wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. There was barely enough fabric for this tank. I used some pre-made bias tape for the arms and neckline. I also used French seams on the sides and, for some reason, decided to do flat-felled on the shoulders. I’m kind of shocked that the neon flowers look OK with my olive green sweater. But, the leaves are the same color as the sweater.
