Have you heard of Flip This Pattern? If not, or if you need a reminder, here's the link.
Basically, it's one pattern a month that you 'flip' or make your own in any way. That could mean a fun fabric, embellishments, etc.
Honestly, I didn't 'flip' it at all. Maybe next time. I like to get the hang of a pattern before diving into something more serious.

I've loved this pattern since it came out. I finally bought it and sewed it up this weekend.
I used a nice denim with Riley Blake helicopter cotton for the pockets and waist lining.
This pattern was super easy and quick to sew up. I will definitely be making more!
