there are still a few spots left in the next session of sewing 103/Built by You Tunic at Brooklyn General! this is a great project to move your sewing skills forward; it's a bit challenging, but oh-so-cute! i'm working on my fourth one now...
check out some of the inspiring combos people have made! i just recently discovered (and promptly joined) the Built by Us flickr group and it makes me urgently want to try all the patterns i still haven't gotten to yet.
