Blog Love: Freshly Picked

Sometimes I am reading a blog and I think, "Other people should know about this!" I usually add it to my blog roll, but I don't think that has the 'shout it from the rooftop' effect I am going for. So, occassionally, I'll share a blog that is tickling my fancy.

First up, Freshly Picked:

I have been reading this blog for about a year, and it just keeps getting better. Yesterday Susan posted a tutorial for taking in the waistband on jeans:

I have never been so excited about a DIY in my life. I often buy pants that fit wonderfully through the hips and thighs and gap like crazy at the waist (if you are an hour glass or pear shape, you know what I am talking about).

She also posted a tutorial for a simple elastic skirt with pockets a few weeks ago. As well as pointing readers to a tutorial to add pockets to any skirt or dress, freaking fantastic.

And to top it off, she's quite funny.

  1. Thanks for sharing your favs...I love finding out which blogs the bloggers I like are reading!

  2. I've now added freshlypicked to my reader. I am itching to make an elastic skirt! I can't wait to make a trip to the fabric store :)

  3. that lingerie post is hilarious. also fell in love with the elastic skirt when i saw that my friend made it. i love when people make sewing seem manageable for me!

  4. Um...This jean tutorial might change my life forever! Seriously!!! And I want that skirt!

  5. So what about taking out the waist? ;) I have the opposite problem, tiny hips and butt and skinny legs, but larger waist. Stupid apple shape...Anyways, I've seen her site before, too, and I really want to try out that skirt!!!

  6. @Kelsey- Taking out is much more difficult than taking in. Have you considered buying pants a size up (to fit your waist comfortably) and tailoring the legs to fit?

  7. Thanks. I am definitely going to make that skirt!!

  8. i love freshly picked! good blog love. :)
